"It's a Good Day!" Typewriter Watercolor

Yesterday I was thumbing through my watercolor file (full of finished and unfinished works) and found a typewriter.

It was so cute but it needed something...

I am really inspired by art deco illustrations. In my mind a light bulb went off and I knew it needed flowers!

Then I was trying to figure out what to write on the paper, and then I heard Calvin ask if it was a good day.

When he was little and throwing tantrums I told him it was up to him to decide what kind of a day he wanted to have.

He could have a good day or a bad day.

He always chooses "good" but he hasn't stopped asking almost EVERY day, "Is it a good day?"

And I will say, "Yes, it's a good day."

I plan on making prints and putting them up in the shop!


  1. I thought of you today while I was waiting to get my mammogram and had to face a big ugly print of a brown flower! It was one of those ugly things that you can get at Big Lots for people who think the art work needs to match their couch. And I thought..."I sure wish they'd hang up some of Heatherlee's vintage dress paintings. They'd be much more interesting too look at!"

  2. I love this! If I wasn't in the process of moving and packing everything up, I wouldn't be able to resist. Perhaps a housewarming present to myself...

  3. Thank you, Pam! That is so nice of you to think of me and to say that! :) Sheila, thank you! I hope you have an easy and stress free time moving!
