Visual Telephone Game, or Image Connectivity

9" x 12" watercolor
This is a watercolor painting of my sister, Carol, painted fast and sloppy from a phone photo. I'm not too happy with it--should have taken my time, but a glance, to me, anyway, she looks like some actress that I couldn't immediately bring to mind,

...until I watched Episode 4 of "Wolf Hall" and saw her! 
This painting of Carol reminds me of Jessica Raines, 

from google image page
 ...BUT not as she is in "Wolf Hall," or in this "candid" shot,

also from Google image page
...BUT as she is in the first season of "Call the Midwife." Are you getting the idea that I watch too much PBS yet? However, now that I see this "Call the Midwife" shot, I am reminded of

8": x 10" oil painting
...THIS painting that I did from an old photo of 
my mother, circa 1940!

Game of Thrones: So Sad!

9" x 12" watercolor on paper
Hey! You might say. This painting is sooo dated. Arya is much more mature now, in this...5th(?) season?!

The sad, sad truth for me is: I don't have great cable. Frankly, not even good cable, unless you consider being able to watch ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and FOX as good. Oh, yeah. I get the Weather Channel. 

So I read the books and look forward to borrowing the DVDs from the library, and right now, Season 4 is in too much demand to find! Forget about what's going on in the current, HBO (Is it HBO? Maybe it's showtime or something--or that darn STARZ where I have to try to forget that they are showing OUTLANDER which is KILLING ME. KILLING ME.)

But it's Thursday, and so here's a Throw Back Thursday painting of Arya. Available on Etsy for all fans of the early seasons and spunky, sassy Arya.
