Everything you never asked…

me 003


Amy (click on her)

is interviewing her readers

and I am one


here you go…

 1. what is your name and stuff? and any other good information. like bank account details.

My name is Lisa.  Just like the majority of people my age. (46)  All through school

and at every job,

I’ve been Lisa D.

And I have always hated it.

Not the Lisa part. The D. part.

Now I am priti.lisa.

After my Art Studio. Priti is a Sanskrit word

for the feeling of joy

you get from spreading love.

I am a mother, an artist and a wife.

I am a vegetarian and a humanitarian.

I am a lapsed Catholic with immense spiritualism.

And although I don’t call myself gay,

I love having a wife. 

We’ve been together 11 years. 


2. what is super hot about you?  <--- don't you Dare skip this one.  answer it.

I think my loyalty.

Unless you meant physically.

Then I would say my eyes.


 3.  don't lie or cheat: what is under your couch right now?

The leaf to my dining room table.

4.  when was the last time you shaved your legs?


But I prolly won’t shave them all winter long.


5.  what did you have for breakfast?

So far 3 cups of coffee.

But I will eat granola like I do every day at 9am.


6. if you could choose a new name, what would you name yourself?

I think I kinda did that.

But Merry is also cool.

          7.  have you ever had plastic surgery?



8. are you afraid of the dark?

No. But I am afraid of falling down the stairs in the dark.


9. are you a hermit?

A lot of the time.  It’s when I am happiest.


10.  why do you blog?

To prove I am “normal-ish”

I mean, I’m not that crazy. Am I?

                                    The End.

Thanks for asking Amy.

What I have been working on…

jesus and mary 001  jesus and mary 002

What I am thinking about…

jesus and mary 004

these guys I got from my neighbor.

They need a Priti make-over.

The moon last night…

jesus and mary 010

Don’t those clouds look like Angel wings?

I gotta go…

but I have to remind you to go HERE


And I am hosting the challenge this week…


“See” you soon! ♥♥♥


  1. Have a great day Merry Lisa : )

  2. I enjoyed your interview, thanks! :) It's great being amongst like-minded artists and that's the reason I blog too. I wondered about the name Priti, my son's teacher in Primary School was called Priti (She had parents from India.) I'd never come across it again until now. I hate my middle name and very rarely use it!

  3. thanks be to Amy for such provocative questions and to you for your openness and candor... and the sketches you are working on are just stunning... xoxox

  4. Love the get to know you quiz although somehow I felt like I knew you already.

    I like the sketches of what you are working on and can't wait to see what you do with those gifts from the neighbors.

  10. Glad to get to know you, Merry Lisa! Those sketches are wonderful. Love to see where you take them and those neighborly gifts.

    Hugs and have a great week.

    Ps-I decided on the sparklies. It just not me not too. :)

  11. :)
    i think you are more than normal ish.

    i like you tons and tons ESPECially now that i know more about you.

    look, the sketch of the male face is really gripping.

    and i love
    the double chin on the woman.

    i don't shave my damn legs either.
    i don't see a reason.


  12. I love the details, no one, likes to talk about the details,...but these kinds of questions, makes ya, really, think about who you are! We don't do this enough. And I have 4 cups of coffee before my greek yogurt and granola.

  16. Hi Lisa. I was going to send you email but sometimes you don't get to it right away and I need an answer today, tee hee. Why? Well, would you allow me to "try" to paint you, the picture you posted here? I wanted to at least get a WIP by PPF? I wanted to post it on Friday. Pretty please? I promise to try and do my best. Let me know please. Thank you.
