For our prompt of “Fireworks” today, I immediately realized I’ve never painted fireworks before so I wasn’t quite sure how to approach things. In truth, it sounded hard so I’d sort of avoided ever doing it. So, I
We have a park close by that does fireworks shows most years, so we can sit in our living room or patio and watch the show. That’s good, because I do like watching them for a while, I hate fighting the traffic to get their and back.
Right down the road from our home they do 4th of July fireworks at the campgrounds. We can see them if we go out and get past the big maple in our yard. If the mosquitoes are bad, I’d just as soon skip them! Best I ever saw was in Illinois. They were cancelled because of rain, so when they did set them off a few days later there was a very small crowd and we got to sit right under them. It was so cool!
Delightful little mouse, Charlie. Definitely missed seeing all of the fireworks this year. Maybe they will be back next year. Our 3 cats did not miss the fireworks at all…at the first boom they head for cover.
The best kind of firework display – pretty, and quiet as the mouse spectator! Not to be a sourpuss, but I’m done with fireworks by 5th November as there have been weeks of them by this point. Organised displays are fine, but random people setting them off in the neighbourhood with an obnoxiously loud boom – and me jumping out of my skin! – wears thin after a while.
Well done Charlie! Out here at the end of the world, we never know what’s going to happen for our big fireworks display on the 4th. Will the skies be ablaze with beauty? Will clouds roll in off the coast? Will they blow up the pier? I grew up in the shadow of the Mouse House and fireworks happened every night at 9pm. Everyone would stand so in front of my house, ooing and awwwing. Unless we were having a block party, fireworks signaled our day was over, and no flying fairy could change the course of events. You could hear bath water running all over the neighborhood!
Hehe! Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 It’s just a child’s humor… things like that make me giggle too! Yeah, people love illustrated mice, but the real ones are not well loved at all. And your fireworks display sounds awesome!
For our prompt of “Party” today, I thought about costume parties that would normally happen around this time of year for Halloween. Though humans are hiding out at home these days, we have a quick little doodle of
Costumes from the past always look so beautiful, but given the hygiene of the time I don’t even want to think of the smell, lol. I do love looking at the museum collections though. Like most things made from hand, those costumes had a beauty that today’s clothing can’t compare!
I love those meeces to pieces! I love the cheese piled high. I have a troublemaking mouse I paint annually for Christmas instead of buying cards. Almost time to decide what to do with her this year. Happy pizza-ing. Every time I order one with my groceries they tell me there are only the ones with meat. You know, that greasy pepperoni or horrid ham. Yes I eat meat but not the stuff of saturated fats and zero nutrition. Have a great weekend Charlie.
Fabulous Charlie! No costumes here either. We had snow this morning but if has mostly melted. Tomorrow I take my abstracts to a small gallery in Massachusetts, about 40 minutes from here. They have then for two months. I’m interested to see how their debut goes. I won’t get to see the reaction and they are only open on Saturdays. The new normal?
I’m thinking Best of Show might be the trophy your pup is expecting. I like to watch the show, but I am often sidetracked by food preparation and forget. No guests this year means I might remember. I love watching the English Sheep Dog dance around the ring with all his shiny, long fur just dancing! It feels too early to be thinking of Thanksgiving, but November is just a day away. Time is speeding up again.
Oops I must have deleted it unread like I do a lot of stuff. I meant my the msg page on my FB page Linda M. Gigliotti and I will accept the msgs. Yes we have spinach pizza, my aunt just bought one and told me about it. Thanks for invite — I don’t travel since I refuse to fly any more. You are welcome here after the pandemic pandemonium is over. Have a nice spooky weekend!
Thanks so much, Marisela! 😃💕 Our dog only wears his collar on walks… he prefers to run around naked! lol Meatloaf sounds delicious!! Yum!! It’s still cool here tomorrow, but looks like we might be in the 70’s most of next week!
Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 Glad you liked the dress.. I’m not s costume designer by any means and these are totally made up! lol Yeah, I think there’s definitely a pattern to that strutting! hehe Happy Halloween to you! And yes! Philippe finally did this morning… carved two actually and I snuck them into tonight’s sketch!
I painted this digitally in Procreate using brushes created from traditional watercolor samples. The brushes didn’t quite suit my style (they were purchased, not made by me), so a lot of tweaking was needed to get the final look I wanted. I plan to paint a large selection of watercolor and gouache samples to start making my own brush sets over…[Read more]
