Re: Weeders' Chatroom 2018

It's still 2017 but I'll post here because some may not get here again until 2018. Don't know about the rest of you but I am so ready to say goodbye to 2017 and I know 2018 is going to be better.

Oooh that is so beautiful! Love your photo card! Happy Holidays!


2017 Christmas Card (from life)
6" x 8" hard pastels on toned tan Strathmore Mixed Media card.
Happy Holidays!

The paw model is Miss Gemini III, her royal majesty of the Indoor Clowder at age 8 months approx. She has white mittens and white stockings that go all the way up to her hips, along with a white bib and tummy that make her look like a very, very small tiger. She's a tortie, intermittent gray and ginger very tabby striped, split faced.

I hope 2018 is full of inspiration and luck!

I don't post in here much, but I just had to share this. I have to paint like this sometimes; with a neck warmer. My Ziggy.

Happy New Year! Love the pictures and the paintings. Joanne, I always paint with a neck warmer, but of a different kind:



That one is slightly ADD, and tries for the paint, the brush, and anything else that isnít nailed down .

What great pics!

Happy New year everyone - nice to see faces and pets! (I still miss my Charlie keeping me company everywhere in the house!)

Resolutions? .... mine is just to get back to creating artwork again, on a regular basis - I'm so out of touch with easel and paint!

Mine is to focus on writing and painting, let everything else fall away. I have way too many hobbies/distractions. Also need to stay off the Internet, itís a time suck!

Joanne, love your neck warmer! I'll bet Ziggy has a toasty warm fuzzy tummy there. When I sit outside, Jackie comes and flattens herself on my lap - suddenly my thighs are super warm from her very warm tummy. I love that cat for a heater among other things.

June, Suzie looks great in her pink plastic tub! She looks all excited and happy, ready to jump out and pounce on something.

Cool little parrot, Logan! Yours talks! Nothing like having a small dinosaur around for company, you're in good company with James Gurney there! I used to have a parakeet as a teenager, but when I got cats I wouldn't think of torturing them that way - or torturing a bird that way.

Gorgeous frosty landscape, Bonnie! So beautiful. The kind of day best experienced while toasty warm inside the house looking through a big picture window with paints spread out on a table... that'd be awesome. Plein Window is a thing!


Sissy the Fluff Girl in her Blick box. She always enjoys my art supply orders, this is why!

Such a discerning cat Rob!
Lovely wonderland Bonnie with just that touch of colour.

Kay's pictures are posted for this week but it might be Sunday before I can get to them.

Happy creating all!

I didnít know that about James Gurney! I had to go look.
You are right about cats/birds. It truly is torture, and you have to be so vigilant.

What a great picture!

Artistic: love your photo! Keep the snow up there though. It was 46 (Fahrenheit) yesterday here; we all thought we would die.

Re: Weeders' Chatroom Dec 25, 2017 and year 2018

hey all!

hope everyone had a good holiday season! lots of new year's resolutions to create more art? lol

love all the companion critters being posted here! especially Johann's fur coat i have included a pic of our little girl Lytta. she was a rescue cat we got last year after Bo passed (Bo was our himalayan who was a subject in a few WDEs). my desk is along a window sill, and Lytta likes getting on the sill, then tries to take a shortcut down across my desk while i am painting. i had to get a set of half pans and put my tube watercolors in there to help keep little paws out of the paint!

We had a cockatiel at one point and the Himalayans (we had 2 at one point) never bothered with him (Albus was his name). Lytta is closer to a true feline and liked pestering him so we gave Albus away.

Bonnie, I love it when the trees get all frosty like that, but better observed thru a window great photo!

Re: Weeders' Chatroom Dec 25, 2017 and year 2018

I'm thinking these images will make good ones for a WDE - Team could host but pics from 'you'! ...... at least I know where to find them, so if you want to add more .............

Lytta's a lovely colour mix Mike - but she looks quite stern!

Anyone like to add their name to the Hosting Schedule? ...... we need another 6 to complete up to end of April.
