Lightbulb Wde 17-12-2010 --[ Images Here ]---

(Since I have had issues with the image uploader, I am posting a bit early, just in case I run into a snag....)

I will be posting 16 images and a small challenge

Please wait until all are uploaded before commenting - thank you.

You have 30 minutes to make your choice and choose your materials - you may use any medium.

For the next two hours, just go for it……then STOP!, scan or photograph your work and post it in your own new thread with your title, beginning with WDE, plus date, plus title.

When you introduce your work, please add a description of size, medium, support (paper, canvas etc) and time taken.
If your work is digital, we'd appreciate a description of whether it's freehand drawing/painting, manipulated image or done using the filters available in some programmes - you could also say which programme you've used.
All are acceptable but we'd like to know the "hows, whys and wherefores"!!


Use WIP for any work in progress at the 2 hour mark, and MI for multiple images if other works are to be added before the following Monday.

NB. To avoid forum flooding, please put all of your work during the weekend, for the current WDE, into a single thread: multiple threads will be merged!
From the following TUESDAY, you may open a new thread for later work.

You have the whole week to participate - until the next WDE starts (usually Friday). If you finish a piece after that time, we now run a 'Catch-up' thread in the forum each month where you can post any WDE not completed in its allotted week .... it's a sticky near the top of the forum page.

After posting your contribution, please view others’ entries and comment and encourage when you can. Unless requested, please refrain from critiquing.

First things first... A little trip in old Quebec city and getting hit by the first snow in those windy and narrow streets.



Staying in the vicinity, a nice white barn in Laurier Station on the road to my son's home


Another of these romantic covered bridges in the Ottawa river valley



more to come....

The hay got caught by the first snow at Brenda's farm (do not worry, it is wrapped in plastic)


The road leading to one of the nice little farms in Pontiac, west of Ottawa.


Enough landscapes, now a few critters
Her Majesty's official road watchmen....


I took this one at the last agricultural fair...
My favourite "team" (in local French we say "tyme")

And "Bacchus", the golden Labrador at the local Yacht Club



This is Gael, my grandson. He loves to paint with "papi"


For the portrait artists amongst you...Julie, Gael's mother and my inlaw.




And Edmond, my nephew's youngest on his first horseback ride at the local ranch

More to come....

Re: Wde 17-12-2010 --[ Images Here ]---

Now let's move to more inanimate objects.....
There is nothing like a fence to induce you to jump over....
(before the first snow, of course)



Some flower arrangements just before a festivity at the local country club


Painting flowers is something, what about mushrooms ?

Let's have a bit of Christmas spirit with some wrapping ribbons....


And for those of you who do not believe in Santa Claus, this is where I spent my evening last Saturday.... Shot on the main street in Quyon (Pontiac)

(By the way, the reason why the sleigh is on a float is that we are in the process of transferring it to the North Pole where it will be activated on December 24, before that, we cannot get it to work for some obscure technical reason)


As for the challenge... let's keep it simple:
try painting/drawing one of the snow scenes using a black or dark support....
