When you were younger (or, perhaps even now, you wild thing!) you might have day-dreamed about changing your name. I always thought mine (Jennifer) was rather conservative and proper. It didn't speak of exotic adventures or the freedom to be unconventional. It was...safe. Don't get me wrong, it is a fine and lovely name. But as long as we're running down the road of day-dreaming, my inner wild child would choose the name Lola.
So when I am getting ready to speak in public or demonstrate art, I might occasionally call her out to give me a little more showgirl quality. WWLD? What would Lola do? She would sashay up to the microphone and put on a show. Lola isn't afraid of anything. Jen might be shaking in her shoes, but Lola is shaking off her shoes to dance.
Lola and I want to thank you, dear reader, for following us on this thirty day painting marathon...I am sad that it is over, but ready to rest and go back to a less frantic routine. Never fear, twice-weekly blogs will continue and 30 Paintings in 30 Days returns again in September. In the meantime, sweetlings, thank you, thank you. I am honored by your presence on this journey. xo
