Oodles Of Doodles CCI

The doodle du jour is a pretty rare bird in the sense that I think it may be the first one I've found on the United Artists label. This lovely exotic lady is from the back side of Ferrante & Teicher-Pianos In Paradise (United Artists UAS 6230). The back side of my LP is water damaged, so I had to do a lot of work to restore this picture. I also moved some things around a bit to get everything in the frame and avoid a big chunk of white space. I think you can still enjoy it, though. Just for the sake of reference, I'll include the front and back cover below. You can look at the back to see just how much work I had to do on the doodle, and the front cover so you can see why I bought this LP in the first place. If you're interested in hearing it, you can download it over at Xtabay's World.

Yet Another Week In August

What a luverly bunch of coconuts! OK, so they aren't really coconuts, but they are from a palm tree. The Christmas palm, to be exact. These colorful fruits show up under the bright green palm fronds, making a bright Christmassy combination. Unfortunately, it never seems to happen around Christmas time.
