11  Elderly bengal for Christmas gift in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by blupaisan on: December 16, 2016 03:22:06 AM


This is Achilles. He is old and was old even when I first met him four years ago!
Began taking care of him then, and now his owner is not just a client, but a true friend.
This watercolor is going out in the mail today.

Decided to add just a tiny hint of the issue he has with one very gunky eye. Figured to be true, but not overdue it, lol.

I got a bonus from rockingbearranch, beyond the found poetry (one with eyes) and it is awesome just because it is a dupe of an 1800s paper.
the found poetry one rocks!
The eyes are mesmerizing and the poetry emerging so cool

thank you!!

"Actually, make that one cheese and the other mushroom. When can it be here? Use the side door."

that is a pic of my gerbil Chester. I had a pair when I was a teen and took a bunch of cool pics and found them later when my daughter (Acadian Driftwood) was two, so I made an entire story book out of the pics.

Krafty_Karasu made this turquoise, red, and white card for that theme.

OF COURSE the translation between camera and upload makes the color off, but it is a true turquoise, such a simple delicate rendering with a rich cranberry type red, then white,and the whole thing is gorgeous.
thank you, Krafty_Karasu!!

I have received three in the past coupla days.

from rockingbearranch,
odd thing to find at the end of the rainbow...

Here is Iris Apfel in all her glory! On the back is the quote from her "When you don't dress like everyone else, you don't have to think like everyone else."
I love getting cards that open my eyes to new things. I have never heard of this woman. BTW, she rocks! I have tried to draw older people and my wrinkles look horrible. rbr made this one a huge success!


from kartiana, her favorite theme (found poetry)..

Yay! Only just yesterday I added Found Poetry to my want list of cards and then this came in the mail!
I love all of the extra embellishments on this. I am so lucky to get this awesome card!!

from WideEyedLife,
odd thing to find at the end of the rainbow....

the title is Lime Burst Lenny. I cannot imagine a more appropriate name for this cupcake leprecaun dude! what an absolutely zany and wonderful idea and so beautifully rendered.

thank you so much, Craftsters! Great additions to my collection!

mandykaye delivered triplets!!!

Theme is red, white, and turquoise.
wow, did she come thru nicely.
I have to say the cat face is my favorite.
but the other kitty is so unique, and the tree is gorgeous!!
I have been obsessed since childhood about images that are stamped just a bit off, where the colors are trying to get into  line but do not quite make it. It is one of my favorite pieces of  muffed art.
the trees really remind me of that, thus, I love them dearly!!!

thank you so much!!!

curiousfae made this awesomely funny card for my theme Unlikely Greeting cards...




ahhh, you all wonder what tender sentiments will be inside this card...


Rare is the fast friend who will help you get rid of the nasty evidence!!

I laughed sooo hard when I opened this.

thanks so much, curiousfae!!

rockingbearranch sent extras along with her card.  I love the feel and style of these cards.

She chose my soddie house theme and made this....




I want so much to someday see a real (old) sod house.
See the dirt bricks?
and the grass grows on the roof!!

She made the 1800s inhabitant really pop by mounting them this way.

thanks so much, rbr!!!!

got two in the  box today!

from krafty_karasu,
mushroom house

I am so glad she chose a night scene for this. That is rare! There is a tiny tuft of smoke coming out the top of the chimney and what looks to be a tigereye bead for a doorknob.
this is adorable, complete with the quintessential red and white dotted top.
thank you so much, kk!!!

and from curiousfae,
embroidery

she claims not to be embroiderknowledgable but this card blows me out of the water!  The way the daisy petals are created with just floss shows their natural dimensions incredibly. I adore adore white daisies and this card rocks hard.
thank you, curiousfae!!!!!

Cortez, a year and a half old,


and when I got him as a baby



After a year I learned how to sex a mouse and he turned out to be a she, but I rarely think of that, and have not changed the name.

East and West, adopted last month from my local shelter where they were just hanging out in the back room with no hope for a real home. I am still getting to know them and since I did not have them as babies, they are a bit skittish. Thus the blurry shots.

East...


and Ouest


both female, both about three months old.
