  12. Don't worry, I am no FB expert either.In fact I may just be a weekender. I deactivated my account before but that's where the teenagers are hanging out and so it's a good thing to see what they are up to. They are very funny, so that's good. I will be stopping by now and then, not just posting. It lets me take some time back to do more oil painting. Have a great week Shirley!

    I love your art. I think it's your ability to capture their expressions perfectly!

  27. Oh my goodness! This is just way too cute. I am much older than my sister and I never had to worry about things like that! Nor did I have a meddlesome brother! Fortunately for me. Thanks for sharing a little frivolity on a Monday morning! Theresa

  30. How cute is that!!! Excellent sequence, Shirley!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Okay I can see a lot of people have found the same joy in this that I have. Shirley it's great how you have traced the range of actions climaxing with th final emotion. It's like a shaggy dog story, the 'bitter' anti climax for the protagonist is what gives us as the audience a laugh.

    Serves him right we think - than you for the lesson in both comedy and beautiful and delicate water colour.

    And apart from learning I had fun looking :) :)

  44. Thank you very much, Shirley.
    You're too kind.
    It always happens that we like what others do, and less what we do.
    I like how you paint.
    and tenderness of your pets.
    I may never draw something like that.

    I must tell you, since the last time I was here, my other Time Machine went kaput. YES! Argh. I will not be buying them again.

    Thank you for your visit and lovely words, dear Shirley. They are among the sweetest I receive. Hope you have a wonderful summer with your little ones. Hope you have some fantastic movie nights, too! xoxo

  69. Hi Shirley! Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments and kind words. I really appreciate that you took the time to send me a note! I think you're right about style... its something that evolves over time and with lots of drawing. And I think that taking the time to sketch every night is a great idea and one that I'll use.

    Now my portfolio is all put together and I'm ready for the conference! :) Thank you for your encouragement! Your new blog banner looks great and your website is wonderful!
