doodling...
While in a shop recently I was called 'lass'
I didn't know whether to be offended or complimented !?
Anyway, here is MY long necked lass
(my daughter is very concerned as to why she has such a long neck!!)
 with her friendly Thylacine (my current obsession)

Yes very beautiful, as are long necks, always considered as a mark of beauty and elegance.
Wonderful, peaceful and magical atmospere in your previous painting, x

I like your "lass" - her eyes are so expressive! The long neck gives her charm... I remembered Burns's "If a 'body meets a 'body....", that we learned at the English School. And later on:
"Every lassie has her laddie..." - this is the only time I've met this word!:)
Oh, how could I miss your previous post?! I think you've caught the sensation of eternity in the quietness and the water flowing... What is a human's life after all? A passing boat in the river of life... With someone to love...

I am always amazed Rosichka, with english being your second language. Your wording is always so pensive and poetic - it's always nice to hear from you!

Rebecca, I'm LOVING your latest 'piece' - incredible!

Oh, thanks for the compliment! I've blushed... Hmmm... It's strange, but the more I read and write in English, the more I have the feeling that I make mistakes!:)))
