May be purchased through The Daily Paintworks auction site.

This drawing/painting is a prompt challenge from Jennifer Mclean over at Just Add Water Silly, The Artist's Playroom.  Our prompt is the word "Juicy".  I thought of several things I might want to paint.  A juicy hamburger, a person eating a fresh and ripe peach, Juicy Fruit Gum... But I finally decided on using my "juicy" and sparkling new paints.  It is a combination of my imagination and tangles.  Let's call the lady "Josephine"!  She has just returned from a long day of shopping and is dreaming of all the beautiful things she saw.  Some affordable and some not.  There were diamonds and pearls, hats and purses and roses, and trips to palaces far and wide.  The money was flying in all directions, she was on a  juicy and sparkling spree!  
Definitions..

spree/sprē/

Noun:
  1. A spell or sustained period of unrestrained activity of a particular kind: "a shopping spree".
  2. A spell of unrestrained drinking....  (no drinking happening here except a small glass of juicy red wine at lunch with her girlfriend!)

Today I would definitely like you to visit Jenn's blog post Jenn's blog post about the wonderful new international art magazine called Featuring.  It is loaded with articles on journaling, altered books, Zentangling, Artist's studios and more.  If you pre-order your copy this month you may be chosen to win an inchie of space for your art on the back cover of the next issue.

This is also my entry for Paint Party Friday hosted by Kristen and Eva
