  1. Wow! This is good! It would definitely take some thought for me to complete that's for sure! Neat choices Serena (many I'd pick myself). Thanks for sharing :D

  2. Great answers! I did a version of this back in February and a couple of our answers are either the same or very close. Of course, our colors are exactly the same!!

  3. This just confirms what we always knew...that we have a lot in common! This is a fun one and I'm glad you played along Serena

  4. Oh I dont know... but I love the image!!

  5. Hi Serena,
    Wow, what a great way to get to know someone. Funny thing I feel I know you very well and we have a few things in common.
    Ah, that feet matching challenge was quite tricky.
    I see you also use Jo Sonja paints-fantastic they are.
    Happy Easter to you and your family.

  6. Thanks everyone!

    The feet challenge was hilarious, Anna. Btw, I used Jo Sonja paints exclusively years ago but, nowadays, I use a lot more of the Matisse paints, the Atelier Interactive or Atelier Absolute Matte ranges of paint. I still use some of my Jo Sonja favourites though....LOVE the Aqua and Burnt Umber.

  7. oh yes, a dolphin.. perfect for you.. and Desiderata.. I have a copy next to my computer. I love it... can you remember it when it was put to music?

    thanks tons for the comments & support over the past few weeks.. I am slowly catching up on commenting myself xoox you are a good friend xo

  10. Somehow that all fits you, from what I know of you. Very cool.

  11. What a fun exercise, Serena! I'm so glad to read your answers, and perhaps I'll do it myself at some point. Thank you for introducing me to Desiderata; I'd never heard of it before and have just returned from reading it. Lovely.

    Your photograph reminds me of your incredible hibiscus painting (resident in your sidebar). Glad to see the new blog design with lots of purple. It seems very serene, very *you*. :)

  12. Love the colors of your studio. :)
    What an interesting exercise. Love the Photo of the Hibiscus.
