O-so-cool. This reminds me of kids' TV. Is that a cow over the horizon or are we supposed to know?

hehee...it's a hat...there's a guy (the one who was mowing that hill) under the hat, napping....

i think i'd better get back to the drawing board on this one.

There are no lawnmowers in paradise. I'm pretty sure that's specified in the Bible:

"In my Father's house, there are many mansions, but NO lawnmowers."

Sweet image! And thanks for your kind words on my blog. xoxo

Jeremy said...

Is this where good little lawnmowers go?

If I was a dead lawnmower gone to heaven, I think heaven would be paved or covered with dichondra.

fat B said...

I must agree with Schadenfreude. There are no lawnmowers in heaven.

Who can mow the lawn when there is so much love in the air!

carla said...

Sweet! I feel that lovely lazy summer mood coming on just looking at this! The heart clouds are such a delightful touch:>

I wouldn't mind a lawnmower in paradise but with man slaves pushing it ... wearing no shirts ... and *blush* Lusty clouds };-}

Aurora said...

hi--thanks for commenting on my blog, --are all your illustrations created on the computer? do you use adobe illustrator?

schad: in my paradise there are topless, sweaty men performing all manner of topless-sweaty labor, and if that labor includes cutting the grass, i'm willing to let them use a push mower.

ramone: xoxo

jeremy: if i died and went to lawnmower heaven, i think it would be fields and fields of astroturf.

fat B: maybe not in men heaven, but in women heaven, we get to watch.

tony: smoooch

carla: when the skies are this blue, i wish i was in love...

anonymous: you are a brilliant thinker and a great philosopher.

aurora: I use a pen and paper - then I scan it, and use paintshop pro for fill and texture. There are pics I've done completely with the paintshop pro, though...using my mouse to draw vector lines...

Twisselman said...

Much better to sit back and watch the grass grow (or the clouds sail by) than to cut it.

Mademoiselle Princesse said...

CATNIP!!!! LOTS AND LOTS OF IT!!!!

Janice said...

you can feel the peace... Who needs to work on a day like this.... Something we all need to realize... Take some time and enjoy the moment.

Jeff said...

Great pic! ...Except this reminds me that I need to mow my lawn. (At least now I can create a maze, like those corn feilds.)

What a lovely illo! Love your clouds!

bookbabie said...

I love the smell of mown grass in the summer. I was just driving today and rolled down the window for a wiff, mmmm, I can see why dogs hang their heads out car windows:)

ValGalArt said...

This must be paradise if there's heart-shaped clouds! Lovely!

studio lolo said...

This is quite peaceful! Nothing like lying on the freshly mowed grass and taking it all in.

At first I heard Todd Rundgren:
"I don't want to work
I want to bang on the drum all day"

Then it was definitely Joni:
So many things I would have done, but clouds got in my way.

Met up with Christopher Cross:
"Well, it's not far down to paradise
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right
You can sail away
and find tranquility"

and ended up with Lighthouse:
"Sittin' stoned alone in my backyard
Askin' myself "Why should I work so hard?"
Sittin' dreamin' 'bout the days to come
Half-undressed, just soakin' up the sun"

I see paradise is hospitable to wisdom...

Dude! You are alive and well. Haven't been here in aegis (yuk). I love that picture. I hope I don't offend: So Paul Reuben, so Pee-Wee, so Teletubbies. I have to admit something right here in front of Napping Cats and everyone: I cannot tear myself away from Teletubbies. If I am channel surfing and I light on their show, I'm a gonner. I'm done. Show's not over until the show is over.

Hello again, Natcapping.
