Pinky and Perky

Presenting Pinky and Perky (not their real names*)

Always minding their own business and never minding each other, perching apart just enough from each other yet close enough to appear together at the same time, providing a united front, their body language provides a few clues about their relationship.

Pinky holds a higher authority, and Perky is subservient.

Pinky is alert and Perky aloof.

Pinky wants freedom and Perky is happy as is.

Pinky is wide awake and Perky is sound asleep.

Pinky can’t stand Perky’s snoring.

Perky can’t stand Pinky’s whining.

Pinky blames Perky for getting them both locked outside of their cage.

Pinky wouldn’t listen when Perky said they were still locked inside the run.

Pinky couldn’t settle on top of the cage, Perky was most comfortable.

Pinky had internal ruffled feathers, Perky just went with the flow.

I’m just going with the flow as well. Posting the occasional #InThePink post for Becky’s September Squares challenge (the link above will take you to many more pink-themed pics), and having fun doing so!

*I was contemplating pixelating Pinky and Perky’s faces for this post, but that would have hidden their perfect expressions. And besides, their noms de plume protect their identities perfectly.

Starting Somewhere

I have just painted my first ever acrylic on canvas painting, at the grand old age of 24 (ahem).

It’s rough and blocky and splotchy, but I quite like how it has turned out. The trees still need a bit of work, and I think I’ll need to paint out the stars as they do nothing whatsoever for the picture. And the paint hasn’t yet dried, as is usually the case when I ‘finish’ a painting – I need to capture the moment there and then! I also need to have a rethink about my signature as well… but it fits with this painting as it too is chunky, blocky and the rest.

It’s only a small square canvas, not quite as large (or rectangular) as a sheet of A4 paper, but just the right size to start with. A while ago, I bought quite a few canvases (canvi?) some of which are, at the moment, quite daunting in size, but one day I shall go for it.

Now though, I’m keeping things manageable.

But, it’s a start, and everything starts somewhere.

Muse

Debbie’s theme for One Word Sunday this week is ‘Muse’, and my interpretation is of the time just before the muse, or the moment of inspiration, strikes.

I’ve experienced many moments like this (and sometimes they last longer than a mere moment, I don’t mind telling you!), but muse is always around. Lurking. Somewhere!

Threesome

Debbie’s theme for One Word Sunday this week is ‘Threesome’, and I instantly remembered I took a few photos of three bonbons a while back. I know I have posted a similar photo before, but can’t quite remember if I’ve used this one. So, even if I have, or I haven’t, here it is (again)!

There are more interpretations of this week’s theme over on Debbie’s site. The link is below.

And, after a while away, three posts in one day is more than enough for anybody! This post, therefore, fits the threesome theme in a couple of ways! Three for three!
