Crying Dog.

I was going to do some sketching or watercolours tonight, but feel too angry and upset. There’s been a dog in the place next to mine, in the house the last couple of days by himself. Both last night and tonight have heard him cry for awhile, and it breaks my heart to hear an animal like that.  He sounds so sad and lonely. The animal people came out earlier today, saw their van out the front.  But he’s still in there by himself.  Tried to ring them tonight but will have to wait til the morning as they’re closed now. The people that live there left a couple of days ago, as they had some trouble there, and haven’t been back yet. I wish it was morning already. Wish I could go in and talk to him.

Few more old ones.

Will be good when I get a board or something to lean them on, has been windy and they won’t stand up straight outside. For some reason the flash isn’t working, so must be doing something wrong there.

Well I got one picture on ok, but the other two next to it I haven’t done properly. Have just got the camera and am still learning how to use it and upload the pictures. Guess I’ll get it right soon??  Those 3 paintings/drawings I’ve just put on were actually done a few years ago, (have just been in a folder for a long time) just when I was starting to get into art, I haven’t done anything for a long time.  They were done sitting or laying on the floor of an old bus, I have a table now so can spread out more. My love for art has never diminished.  To look at other peoples work gives me such pleasure. To fiddle around with it myself nearly as much.

Its blowing like crazy today, but guess can be very glad we’re not in some parts of America where they have really copped it. My thoughts go out to them.  A speedy safe return to their homes and lives.

Beautiful Art

I had a look at a site on wordpress the other night. The art was so beautiful. Spectacular. By Anthony Enyedy. This man is just so talented, hope you can do yourself a favor by having a look.

Was all excited yesterday about the oncoming arrival of a new battery for my mobile camera phone.  It arrived promptly and when my brother bought it in couldn’t wait to get it out the envelope to put in the phone. Had been waiting on it so I could put a few things on the blog.  Some of my past charcoal, pastel and acrylic works.  Wasn’t to be, the battery they had sent didn’t fit it. Disappointment wasn’t the word.  Was going to learn last night how to take photos of  them then email them to the site.  Well, know how to take the photos, but not the emailing thing by phone.  Ah well, another impatient wait.

Filled a few hours last night looking through the different art blogs on wordpress, some sketching, pastel, coloured pencil art, and oils and acrylics that people had put on.  Drank too many coffees to go with it, but enjoyed it all the same.  My brothers little granddaughter is 5 years old, and I want to put some of the things she draws on also. Her teacher has commented on her ability to draw and colour, and I myself can’t believe the amount of talent that a little 5yo can have.  She is a natural, and is happiest sitting on the floor with pencils, crayons and paper, and will draw for hours if you let her, and if enough paper also. She loves pinching my printing paper.  I really think she will go a long way with it if she keeps to it. Her mother is very talented also, and could sell her work if she wanted to, as it is very unique, her own style, which is very important with art.

Couple of sites I love to look at are Creative Spotlight and Robert Davies www.how-to-paint-and-draw.com  But so many others to check out also. My particular love is pastels, after seeing what people can do with them I find it incredibly beautiful.  Gentle art.  My way of looking at it anyway.

I also love most crafts, so have a few more sites to look at on that.  If you have any blogs on either,  would love if you leave your sites on here so can have a look. Thanks.

Today we have an absolutely beautiful day here, weather wise, must have maybe spurred me on to looking at my art supplies again. Not that have lots of them at moment, but will slowly get it together again, hope.  Have a nice day, and Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there.
