Smiles to all! Weekend once more!

Up early.

Out early.

Supplies bought.

Art supplies, that is.

And I have no idea what I’m going to do with them… just went on a pick and mix rampage and bought anything that jumped out at me!

I have two tiny tiny segmented containers, two sparkly glass candle holders, a two-handled vase, some feathers, a glue gun with glue sticks, a sharp knife, some air-drying clay and some sticky fixers. Oh, and some stretched canvases (canvi?) and some soft pastels. I don’t know what I was thinking.

But there’s nothing new there!

Inspiration strikes in the oddest ways.

Sometimes, the most random object helps.

About the image:

A watercolour painting of my paintbrushes, which I painted in July 2016 as part of #WorldWatercolorMonth. It has been digitally enhanced and imbued with the creative power of the Universe, each star representing a spark of artistic inspiration. One of them will find its way to me soon, I’m sure. Oh, and I’ve digitally added the signature as well. I say digitally. I mean through PowerPoint.

Poortrait. El Revealo!

Drum Roll Please.

Shuffling sound heard as envelope is swiftly opened.

The Poortrait is of… Tom Cruise!

Rapturous applause heard from around the room. Lights flashing, highlighting members of the audience clapping and cheering. Smiling. Laughing. Open-mouthed. Puzzled. Confused. Bewildered.

Commotion on stage. Officials on stage.

The wrong envelope.

The Wrong Envelope.

The wrong announcement.

What are the chances of that???

Shuffling sound heard as second envelope is swiftly opened.

The Poortrait is actually of…

What do you mean you don’t know?

It’s Brad Pitt, so obviously, it’s undeniable. Undeniably obvious. Unobviously deniable. Ahem. Is unobviously a word?

Yes, it’s Brad Pitt from the 1994 movie ‘Interview with the Vampire’. I watched it when I was one. Year old, not vampire. Ahem. Again.

One point must go to Val Boyko who actually mentioned this person (although she did change her mind as well and said Tom Cruise, but he was also in the movie; in fact he was the one who turned Brad into a vampire, if my memory serves me correctly) Well done Val!

A nice dose of silliness to lighten the load. And why not?

Poortrait Time!

As per usual, I’m stumped for a post idea… so, I’ve opted for an old favourite… Poortrait time! Pictured above is a rough, rushed and not quite complete poortrait of someone who is or should be well known to the public. Although, I could be wrong as my previous poortrait proved. Never the less, I’m going with it. Now then, two questions this time… who is (s )he; and for an extra half a point (I’m nothing if not generous) name the movie this poortrait has been created from.

Just for fun. No real prizes will be awarded, and I will not be offended by incorrect guesses… I’m hopeless at portraits. (And as per usual, no offence is intended to the vict subject)

I shall reveal the reveal in a few posts time!

Storm Doris (including Cute Critter Friday)

Yes, I know this is Beryl and not Doris

Storm Doris blew into town today, and what a ruckus she made!

Bits and bobs were flying hither thither and every whither.

Birds, attempting to fly forwards were flying backwards at neck beak speeds.

It was nigh on impossible to open a door whilst she was in full force… fencing panels became one with the wind, roads were closed and traffic cones were blown out of alignment.

I went for a walk around the Lake during the eye. It was still breezy, but nowhere near as it had been earlier and as it would be once again a little later. The sky was blue, and only one tree had been partly blown down.

The ducks and geese on the Lake were completely oblivious. Debris was flying around them; the waters were so choppy I was almost tempted to have a go at surfing at one end, but the water birds just took things in their stride.

Even Tufty showed no interest in the extreme weather whatsoever… he seemed to enjoy the invigorating feel of the wind blowing through his tuft.

It's hard to take a decent photo in strong winds

I got back, expecting to look somewhat disheveled.

I, rather surprisingly, wasn’t surprised.

Things have settled down now. Beryl* – I mean Doris – has either ran out of steam or moved on. She’s left a bit of an icy chill behind her… but we’re almost in March… so Spring is on the way. Mind you, with March also come the winds…

*Doris in this post has been portrayed by Beryl, one of my characters from my other blog, Splodge and Splatter.
