A bath on a Saturday night would sure cool you off. A splash with a bar of soap and a brush out on the back porch would be a good way to end the day.

When I was a little kid sometimes we would go to the pool. But there were a lot of days when mom would set up two tubs in the yard and fill them with water. By the afternoon the water would be warm and me and my brother would splash until the water was gone, and that was the end of that. We would be clean and cool for a while.

I wouldnt think that Hallmark would have to start worring just yet. This little card took me most of the day to complete.

I had the background that was a piece of scrap that I had used to test colors. I transfered the image's from a Farmers Almanac.

Child's Play


Child's Play
Originally uploaded by stogscrow.
When we were little there was finger painting. We had our dads big white shirt and we went at it. This was big fun. Paint all over the place and at the end of the day we walked home with the days product protected from the elements.

Our hope was that we would get our own showing on the refrigerator. I am sure that our folks and the school officials were hoping that they could clean up the mess and that we wouldnt get some kind of paint poisining.

Well here I am back at finger painting, many years later. The fat fingers and clunky hands dont seem to hurt the process. There is not one child to be seen but this is childs play none the less.

Opposites

This is the painting that represents opposites.

Weird stuff happens on the waxing and the waining moon. It is exactly the same only opposite. Bad stuff is brewing on the onset of the full moon. The full moon is usualy when the dark beings are primed to wreck the world.. The waining moon is usualy accompanied by all kinds of teeth gnashing and wailing.

I had no intention of doing this piece but I was inspired by ces
She referenced the Stick Lake painting as Lands End which got my wheels turning. This is the result.

This started out with me playing with the acrilic paints. Trying to figure out how they work. I had new paints and old paints. Like 15 years old. The old ones work better than the new ones.

At the end the green looked like a forest so I added the tree trunks and then the forest needed some action. So there you are and Bob's your uncle. The forest the wolf and Little Red.

This was the headquarters for the original crime fighting duo.
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. Holmes had an upstairs appartment where Watson came and hung out. Mrs Hudson was the landlady and she took care and worried over the pair.
Their crime fighting shenanigans kept her on her toes.

Sacrifice


Evil Eyebrow
Originally uploaded by stogscrow.
This is a classic tale of War and Peace, Love, Anger, Good and Evil and OH! yes Sacrifice with a little Voodoo and Gypsy curse thrown in for good measure.

I know that you have heard of the Evil Eye, the Evil Woman, Evil Kenivil. Well I ask, have you ever heard of an Evil Eyebrow?
I Thought Not!!!!!

The day dawned hot and sultry. Not a day for planting but it had to be done. The Pampas grass had been bought several weeks ago but with the heavy social schedule it had not been planted. The plan was to plant a buffer between the homestead and it's nearest neighbor. They are nice people but this is the country and what did we come for?

I alligned the plants the way that it looked like we would get the most advantage. That was when it happened. Here came the Babe. She was upset and did not like the alignment. Well I thought we could work it out and proceeded to make changes. The solution worked and I finished the planting.

I went in for a cool down and the Babe was doing likewise. That was when It happened. Out of the blue the Babe says "you have an evil eyebrow and that is why we are not getting along" DANG! I thought I was just stupid. She said the first condition just makes the second worse.

Now this is where it really got bad. I turned to move on with my extremly sorry life and she came at me weilding a pair of sissors. She said that if she cut off the bushey hair that made my eyebrow evil,the universe would be calmed and all would be right with the world.

Thinking quickly that the Babe with a pair of sissors charging at me was not a good thing I made the Ultimate Sacrifice. Quickly grabbing the bushey eyebrow, I plucked out the offending hair.

Immediatly, the ripple in the force of the universe calmed and all was right with the world. Who would have thought?

Stick Lake Transfer

This is Stick Lake on the 4th of July.

The transfer concept gave me all kinds of trouble. Hence the clunky transfer's. It seems that the ink on the Lands End book is about 1/4" thick so it looks like I just glued the picture on. I really did it the right way, "really"

A Day at the Fair

Here we are at the fair. Well it wasnt really the fair but more like a taste of the fair. This is me and the Babe on the right and Joy and Dan on the left.

At this Taste of the Fair we were able to walk in the sunshine and sample all kinds of tasty stuff that you don't normaly get.

We had curry in cups, goat on sticks, rice and beans with all kinds of sauce. Stuff from Inda, Africa, China and everywhere. If you look real close you will see the spatereings of the days delights on our dotty shirts.

Now this was a good day but back in the real world I am still craving the taste. This morning I had a bagal with orange marmalade and red curry. This is great! The next time I make marmalade, it will have a big jolt of curry. Wowza Yowza!!!!
