I haven't bought pants for the last five years because I couldn't find a pair that fit me. This pair from Northern Reflections is not bad although I would still have liked the waist about an inch higher. A long rise and a round caboose make it IMPOSSIBLE for me to wear most of the pants being offered out there.
I had the hot pink t-shirt and the pants, so when I found the silk scarf at the thift store that combined the two colors...well, it had to come home with me.
I tried the pants long and cuffed to puddle jumping length. I am interested in hearing which way you think I should wear them. I generally wear my pants long because I have been operating under the theory that short pants shorten the leg making the body look blockier. But, it is finally hot now and I am open to suggestions.
This is a personal thank you to all the women out there that ARE NOT stick thin but still work at looking fashionable. You inspire me no end!

And finally, this week's painting (assemblage):
I was very excited when this conceptual painting was chosen for the Sooke fine Arts show (several years ago). Only 25% of entries are accepted, so just getting in was encouraging. It was my interpretation of the water front. I was fascinated by the little boat cleats and all the ropes, knots, rust and tar that is down by the working ships.
The gentleman who signed it in was terribly surprised that a woman had made it. He seemed to think only a man could tie knots!
