of course it is. :::::::smack:::::::

the roll on facebook this year:


the day rolls round again. happy birthday to elizabeth erin, my beezle, on this, what would've been her 30th birthday. y'all know how this works. it is a day of celebration. it is my way to celebrate just how blessed i was to have such a wonderful being in my life. in these chaotic times, people? it is allll the more important to find the ones you love, wherever they are, however you do it, and let em know how much you love em. how much they mean to you. go forth and do it now. do it today. carpe the damn diem. and always support yer local artists. ::smack::


Image







bouncebouncebounce. she loved this track.




and more bouncebouncebounce.
Image



always hafta put up the les beezle. (les is around here somewhere.) the beezle painted it for les when she was going thru a rough patch. luv ya, les.
Image







no family member was hurt during the taking of this picture.
Image



this was... what do you call the sketch you do before a painting? that's what this. pencil, colored pencil, pastel.
Image



i see you, maryann. mwhaha. you know this is coming for you. this is done in oil.
Image



alll over elizabethan.




Image



impressionistic beeezle
Image



i love this pic. beware the defenders of the fort. they got attitude.
Image



she LOVED this. (she really was alll over the map musically.) she made me teach her the lyrics. mwhaha




dammit, i had a clearer pic of this. having probs finding pics on this computer. anyway, in high school art class, the assignment was to take a famous pic and riff on it. she chose escher. she had just read the story "the lottery" (see black spot on hand.) she went with death. all pencil. this pic essentially won her a college scholarship. p.s. if yer wondering why i haven't responded to anyone yet, it's becuz i'm scramblin around trying to find pics. i will get there. er... we hope. mwhaha)
Image



Image



most of y'all recall this pic. i put it up every year, i love it so. unposed. chi chi caught the pic in a second, as the beezle was unloading her art from the car to the house at the end of term. an unplanned second of time. perfect.
Image







a collaboration with the guy who posed for that second of a painting she was unloading in the previous photo. it's called entropy
Image


she adored this track. however, whenever she heard it, she would start doing the walk like an egyptian dance. every time. do we know why? we do not. mwhaha.



perhaps i should take a moment to find edible foodstuffs. mwhaha. but i wanted to say this before i forget:
there's a nunnery/retreat three streets over. they have (electronic) bells. usually, they just play the normal clock chimes on the hour. at 2:00am this morn, the bells played amazing grace. i'm sure they had some other reason, of course, but i don't care. it was nice to hear wafting thru my window



okay. so here's elizabeth, in a fuzzy buffalo hat, in a blurry pic taken by my sister. and it just may be the meaning of LIFE.
Image



this is carpeing the wafflefry. live it, people.
Image




sighhh. ever my closing track. the track that represents the slideshow of my life. (bryan knows. bryan also knows i love him rabidly.)
i'm sposed to go to dinner, so i will end it here for the night.
thank you, one and all, for joining me this year and this day. i always appreciate it.
don't forget what i said in my opening post.
and have a stellar night. i will come back and respond later.
love to all.

the roll on facebook this year. (mind ye, you've probably seen all of these. i hereby deem that perpetually irrelevant. thank yew.)

the day rolls round again. (amazing, how fast time spins. this is my tenth year of doing these.) happy birthday to elizabeth erin the beezle, on this, what would've been her 31st birthday.

y'all know the drill. today i celebrate all things elizabethan. i am so thankful i have had her in my life. people, feel blessed for those you have. for the ones who've gone, listen inside to how they would be telling you to live. go forth and love on the people you love while you've got em. let em know how much they mean to you. now. today. support yer local artists in happy and scandalous ways. keep yer sights on what really matters (namely, the who not the what.) onward. ::smack::


her "formal" HS grad pic. the necklace was a gift from chi chi.

Image






photographic documentation of a young beezle in the wild.

Image


the beezle and attila, on an alaskan cruise.

Image


she'd go full annie on this one. slapping tables, spinning globes, etc. no cows, though. maybe cats.




you've seen all the art (and most of the photos.) this, of course, never stops me. her take on blondie the dog, in oil. (mornin, maryann.)

Image


"ya think i'm gonna take that medicine, do ya?"

Image


how nice to have a daughter who was *also* a rampant bowie freak. she knew things.




the birthday card she wrote for me. i love it so.

Image


blurry but sweet.

Image


an early sketch. she knew i had a crush on vincent price as a kid. (leave me alone. i wasn't actually normal.)

Image


i see you, les. your beezle. ::smack::

Image


earth beeeelowww us...




one of my fave things by her. it was sposed to be a sketch as a pre-painting. but then she just got into the sketch. pencil, colored pencil, pastel.

Image



i do not remember exactly what he did with that. all i know is it ended in trouble. a brawl on the patio.
this was also the time in her life when she couldn't pronounce the Y sound. they were all Ls to her. "oh look at the lellow flower." or "happy birthdayyy to lou... happy birthdayyy to lou" (of course, no lous present.) then came the way when she came up to me and said, "mommy, i have lucky underwear."

Image


the longest her hair got...

Image


... and the shortest.

Image


one thing i love about her art: she did so many different types of things. part of that, mind, is just being an art student, taking classes all over the map. but everything she did has its own elizabethan flair. (i'm not biased. what.)

Image


she lovvvvved muse. muse got her through physical therapy.




ya know the all-time faves are coming.
this picture is perfect. unposed unprompted. the beez was just unloading her panels from the car at end of term. in a second, chi chi snuck the pic. and it is perfect.

Image


the beezle saved a lizard when she was working in the campus studio. elizardbeth. (my actual framed copy of this picture has bryan's drawing put in the frame, upper right. the beezle likes it there.) when my kids were little, i told em lizards were good luck. but she would've tried to save the lizard anyway.

Image


people, if i've told you once, i've told you ten times. you must show due deference to the waffle fry. you must seize the waffle fry. let it be yer crown. carbe diem.

Image


as y'all know, always my closer. the track that represents the slideshow of my life. she loved it for that very reason.
thank you for joining me yet again, friends. it means a lot to me. we'll be heading out for our traditional dinner soon enough, but know how much i appreciate you.
love to all. i cover you in smackage and smackery. well, of the figurative yet fully vaxxed variety.
