Lettuce Leaf Lady

Since I've been boring you all to death with my birthday and baby pictures recently I thought I would give you something else....another one of my little drawings. Plus it's Saturday and I'm painting. No, nothing on canvas or paper! I'm painting walls!

So here's another of my drawings. She is just in ink....I haven't colored her yet. I was inspired by a photo in a magazine showing several different varieties of lettuce!

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend doing whatever you want to do. Isn't that what weekends are supposed to be about? I'm getting down to business and tackling some of these home projects again. I won't be able to get to anything fun until I get some of them out of the way. I've been dragging my feet, using my birthday as an excuse (yes, I did that!!) but I really must get busy or this house will never get back to normal. Whatever normal is!!


  1. I think she is very Tasty!!! I love the idea of lettuce inspiration..
    You're so talented Ms J.
    Peace, Kai.

  2. your drawings are so great - I am so glad you are bringing them out to show more and more!!! and what fun using lettuce as inspiration!!

    Ohhhhh I love her. That is such a cool concept.

  4. She is so pretty. I can't wait to see her painted! Yea, I have some painting and other things to do too! (My toilet handle broke LAST weekend!--the new one sits on the stairs waiting just for me.)

    wow!! I had no idea you could draw!!! I love your lettuce lady. Have you sketched any other ladies like her?? I can almost envision her as a beaded doll...But, of course, I see everything in beads. :)

  6. OH Janet,,,I am so sorry I missed your birthday!!! I sure hope you had a great day! I have been so busy at work I haven't had a chance to visit my blogs,,so tired at night. Looks like you had some wonderful presents and great phone calls from your children.
    Happy Late Birthday!!!
    Loved the pic too, and the sweet baby pics of you,,such a cutie pie!!
    Hope your having a wonderful sunday!!

  7. Hi Janet. Thanx for visiting my blog. Nice to meet you. I really like your lettuce leaf lady. She looks very Victorian. If you color her, hope you will post again. From one Virbra to another, Happy Creating!

  8. I hope she is going to be coloured all sorts of luscious greens. She has a lovely swishy skirt on, just made for dancing. I love her.

  9. ooh I love it! you are a wonderful draw-er (is that what it is called?) anyhow - you have talent in the drawing department!
    sorry I missed your birthday - but I am sending big hugs right now xoxo - hope your day was everything that you deserve (and more!) xo

  10. Hope all your projects went well over the weekend. Your lettuce leaf lady is lovely,she looks very like a fairy to me and I think that she would look wonderful coloured in delicate shades of green. All ready to go to Titania and Oberon's autumn revels!

  11. Thank you for all the comments on Lettuce Lady. I do appreciate all the feedback.

  12. If you find out what "normal" is, tell us! I could use some "normal" with all the craziness going on here. ;-)

    Lettuce lady is great! Could she be saying "let us" dance? hehe

    You are very talented!
