While the Art Gowns Mermaids slept until their spell was broken, Princess Blue Holly set off to to save them.
Timothy Price had given her a Tangle-Heart tree to carry with her always. It would guide her. She placed it in her heart, so she would never be without a compass. Besides it didn’t fit in Rene Rosso’s suitcase.
Her Tangle-Heart led her to Albuquerque. Here, as Rene Rosso, she would await further information. Of course every venue in town was eager to book the Torchy Nightingale.
Ms. Rosso negotiated: 5 new Art Gowns (1 of which would be styled after the Cottonwoods in fall), a new poster featuring afore mentioned Art Gown, a double size dressing room, a massive star on the door, her choice of songs, musicians and hair, make-up & wardrobe changes during the sets.
Of course limo service to and from her hotel, fresh flowers and fruit plates were included in the Rider. On Saturday night she closed her first set with “Why Don’t You Do Right”, Julie London style.
Retiring for an hour to her dressing room, she threw on a shortie robe. There was note by her fruit plate. It read: “The evil oceanic spawn of SinMonto Corporation, MerSin, turned the Art Gowns models into mermaids.”
She looked into her Tangle-Heart for the fastest route. Resa’s Cottonwood marked the shortest path to Tingley Beach; enter the water there, swim to the Rio Grande and surface when it met the gulf.
Using her Turbo-Tail Fin at full speed, she would arrive in the Rio Grande within moments. She would be at the Gulf of Mexico within minutes.

What a great story you are putting together. Love the song. I like how you are using your tree and Holly’s tree; and, as always, your illustrations are fantastic. The thought of Blue Holly Mermaid “Using her Turbo-Tail Fin at full speed…” made me laugh. Looking forward to part three.
It’s a lot of fun putting this story together, and it’s demanding that I draw. I like that.
Part 3… coming up…. in a few weeks. 😀
I should listen to the song and I will, but those designs just jumped out first!
Thank you, Alex! The more I draw, the better they get. Lol! I’m still wasting too, much paper, though… and I’d like to erase less.
Ah but you’re a perfectionist. That’s why you’re so good!
Whimsical and wonderful! Just like their creator. So talented.
Thank you, Cindy! Having fun!
The negotiations were exhausting but RR ( aka Diva) must have what’s coming to her and without your influence in the industry there may have been a huge problem but with a snap you your elegant fingers there was the fruit plate and the gorgeous gowns. Without Tim’s gift of the Tangle Heart and Cottonwood tree as a compass the journey would have been too much even for PBH. Having morphed and using her Turbo-Tail Fin at full speed she is well on her way to rescuing the models. I wait patiently for part 3.
You are so incredibly talented I’m completely blown away. Brava!
❦ (making dinner, I’ll be back!)
Bon appétit ! 🤗
I know negotiations were all very extensively exhausting, and I hope RR is resting well.
The Art Gowns are a given in a Diva’s contract (although RR got more than usual), but the fruit plate is often forgotten.
Glad to have been of service.
I have total faith in PBH.
TY & xoxo
MerSin and all evil doers are on borrowed time! I totally enjoyed the torch song. xoxo
The torch song is outta this world.
Thanks for covering it!
MerSin is doomed! (Will send rough sketch in a few days.) it’s difficult to draw such hideousness.
Agh, I can only imagine ! PBH will be wearing full protective mask and gloves 🧤! xoxo
Yep, the full gear! You’ll find a ping back at House…
Thank you, dear Holly! Likes are off, so I couldn’t thank you with a Like, but I Love!!!
Thank you for so much fun Resa
Love it! She’s the best-dressed super heroine I’ve ever seen. 😉
Exactly! She’s the first Super Hero who changes outfits, crime dependent. lol! It would be very boring to wear the same tights and cape every day! 😉
Absolutely adore this!
Yay! I’m having lots of fun!
This is so wonderful!
Thank you very, very much!
Brilliant adventures and some very elegant drawings, Resa. And Timothy’s wonderful trees are a true delight to see. Bravo all! :)X
Yay! Thank you so much. I’m attempting to draw MerSin, now. Unfortunately, everything turns into a gown! 😀 x
Haha – luckily that’s never a bad thing! x
Yet another highly qualified skill, added to all the others. 😉
Thank you, dear LDN!
I’m trying to draw the bad guy, MerSin, but the drawings keep turning into gowns.
Say hello to Tux! ❤
You are the “bad” girl, the really really good way. 😀 😀 😀
…. in a gown! 😀 😀 😀
Sure. 😀 😀 😀
Wow!! In fact wow,wow, wow, wow, wow, wow WOW. What a wonderful post. A true feast of gowns and words.
Ahh, a feast of gowns and WORDS!!! Thank you!
Gowns and more gowns and yes… abso delicious words too. x
Resa this is delightful! Such fun. I loved your drawings, and the morphing slide show. Have you ever been to the Rio Grande?
I’m farther south than Tim.
Have a lovely new week. Hugs on the wing.
Thank you, Teagan! It means a lot coming from you!
No, I’ve never been to the Rio Grande. I did check the rout from Tingley Beach with Tim.
I lived in Miami Beach for a year, years ago. I’ve been to Georgia, Kentucky, Alabama, Ohio, (and New York many times) and Washington State, Nevada, Oregon and California (many times).
I’ve yet to see the Gulf, Rio or New Mexico, Louisiana, which I’d like to visit.

Ah, you guys are having such fun, aren’t you?!!!!!! Love this …ALL of it! What a treat!!!! ❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️❤️❣️
More fun than 2 guys aught to have in a day! LOL.
Thank you so much, Marina!
A ha ha ha……. 😂🤣😂🤣❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😍😍😍😘😘😘🤗🤗🤗❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Wonderful story and drawings, Resa.. I love the photo of the Tangle Heart with the moon.
That photo of the Tangle-Heart tree is stunning. It is so generous of Timothy to let us use it!
Glad you like the story and drawings. Winter has set in, and so I’ll have a bit more indoor creative time.
I think the new Art Gown will be finished before the next episode of Princess Blue Holly… but who knows what I’ll feel like doing.
What a fun adventure this is becoming! I love that turbo tail-fin!
Yay! The new Art Gown is getting close to done, so I’m not sure if it will be episode 3 or a new Art Gown Post.Time will tell. So glad you like this!
You are a marvelous storyteller. Fun, Fashion, Frivolity, Fearlessness…. Hugs!
Winter has set in early here, this year.
More drawing and Art Gowns time sets in, too.
Love your artistic expression. Autumn and winter are the most creative seasons. Hugs coming back!!
Absolutely fabulous!!! What fun and what wonderful artwork. Love the story. Truly excellent, Resa. Love and congratulations to you and to Holly. Looking forward to part 3. Much applause.
Yay! So happy you like this. I’ve got to draw the bad guy, MerSin. I’ll just try and make him really ugly. As long as the girls look good, I’m happy.
Anyone one would be lucky to morph into Princess Holly. Thanks for sharing your designs … plus they make me smile.
Happy my drawings make you smile! Holly and I are having a lot of fun.
Now this is epic superhero the way it should be done. I especially like PBH’s alter ego. Who would guess RR is really PBH fighting evil and rescuing mermaids while singing big band classics in stunning art gowns and nibbling fruits back stage in luxury accommodations? Great job Resa! I love this adventure and the art that goes with it.
hehehehe! IKR! Who would ever guess RR is PBH!
Also, as RR, I get to draw gowns.
I suppose we all use what we know. I worked (as a costumer) in the entertainment industry for most of my career. With RR, I get to use all that background knowledge.
I’m a bit out of my depth with PBH, but I’m working on it!
You are awesome to the max Resa and this is great fun to read. 😁
TY!! 😀 😀
Fantastic, as usual. Congrats.
(I didn’t remember Julie London, though she was my mother’s age, 1926. But Cry me a river definitely rings a bell)
Thanks again Resa
I do believe “Cry Me A River” was her big hit.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this, and I am happy you enjoyed it!
Always a pleasure Resa. And that song was smashing. Days long gone.
Fabulous as always, Resa.
Thank you, Pam!
Absolutely gorgeous and oh so deliciously dreamy! Thanks for enchanting me with your creative magic once again:) I truly adore your beautiful art. xxx
Your designs and drawings are always so inspiring and beautiful Resa.
I want you to know after a brief blogging hiatus, this i9s the very first post i am reading.
Hope you are well.
My dear Lonely,
I hope your hiatus was a rest/escape from blogging that you needed.
I’m so happy you came here to visit…. especially first. ❤
You are a true sweetheart!
So, how is it to be back in Miami? Are you happily lounging by the pool sipping a Mojito and writing your novel? I hope so.
Your sweet, affirming poetry is exhilarating to those of us out here in bloggerville.
Still, what about you? What about the full read, your novel?
You deserve to feel the thrill we feel, when we read your poetry. I know our comments are a joy, but don't become complacent within them. Your novel looms. Wait until you feel the joy of having finished your book, until some of us have weighed in!
Lol, I get ahead of myself.
Just saying… welcome back, thank you for visiting me first, I think you are wonderful and write on!
A WHOLE BUNCH OF CREATIVE IMAGINATION IN THIS STORY!!! ❤ LOVE IT! ❤
Thank you Jonathan! ❤
