I like to enter the 2 Things Challenge each week. This week isÂ Up / Down. This is my entry for Up & Down – well, I believe it started as Over & Under … so I did this for that idea – but Up & Down works too. Â … Here are the entries for last week’sÂ Corner / Stone. Anyone can join in, and I hope you give it a try!! We would love more people playing with us! Details are at this link above.
This image is for the Pet Monologues which is the blog which I directed you to showing that incredible video about the lion hugging the woman who rescued him. Here is that other lion video I told you about the other day.Â This videoÂ is absolutely amazing!! If you loved that lion video I showed you before – and who didn’t? Then you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this video … it is utterly amazing … Â some of us have cried from the beauty. Â I know I could put the video here … but it slows things down more – so I wanted to link you to it. Â It will open in a new window.Â
Right now there isÂ a postÂ about Preniptutuals and dog weddings – check it out! Â This is thoseÂ great photosÂ with the bears. Â There is a funny story about a bear today. Also they highlight art, poems and more that showcase animals every week. You can see theirÂ blog here. AndÂ thisÂ is the post for this particular challenge. I hope you enjoy the images there!! Here is aÂ wonderful postÂ about Polar Bears being designated endangeredÂ – check it out! Anyone can join in this fun here too!! They put up a few of the images and then have links to the rest of the sites â€¦ perhaps you will feel moved to participate!

I like to enter the 2 Things Challenge each week. This week is Corner / Stone. This is my entry for Corner & Stone. This is started out as a corner stone of a building but I had more fun making the Stones stand on their Corners … Here are the entries for last week’s People / Watch. Anyone can join in, and I hope you give it a try!! We would love more people playing with us! Details are at this link above.
Tomorrow is going to be post 500!! That is when there will be a give-away from this blog to celebrate. What shall it be? I hope you care excited and want to come by to find out what it is! Thanks for coming by! And see you tomorrow!!
At Etsy there are many shops that are having a Christmas in July sale … I belong to a cool team called the Visual Arts Street Team (VAST) and many of us are also have sales. Â Here is a post on our blog detailing some of the sales … Â Susan Elkin has activated her shop again … and she did post on her blog the other day. My Etsy also has a sale … check here …. If you email me, you can get a special sale for blog readers only – buy 2 ACEOs and get a third FREE!!!! Â
In a few days, it will be my 500th post on this blog – I have posted every day since I started. Others have inspired me by their generosity when they have hit milestones … so I am going to be giving something away. Â Another give-away. If I can, I would also like to be able to sign up people for a mailing list soon. Â I don’t know whether those things will happen together or not. I really like this image – I think it is mysterious … it reminds me of one I did quite awhile ago (Behind the Screen) even though it is quite different. Â Thanks for coming by!
This is a digital rework of Conundrum I. Â When I first used this program of Studio Artist several years ago, I worked with this piece to start with – since it is one of my very favorites. Â I am pleased that this one I created today, has so much more depth and meaning to me. Â Clearly I am mastering both the techniques and the substance much better of digital painting. I am pretty excited!! Â Here is a demo of Studio Artist if you are interested.
Some days others cultures and geography look so much more inviting than one’s own … I look at this and I am transported to another place and time – yes, I know it is mythical, not real … but it is still alluring.
This video is absolutely amazing!! If you loved that lion video I showed you before – and who didn’t? Then you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this video … it is utterly amazing … Â some of us have cried from the beauty. Â I know I could put the video here … but it slows things down more – so I wanted to link you to it. Â It will open in a new window. Â
Speaking of slowing things down, my blog is loading more slowly than it used to … I am not sure if it is from the java scripts for the shops and places where you come from, or all the little images I have in the sidebar … so when I have time – ha ha!!! – I am planning to put more pages on this blog and put some of my links and shops there and put all my fun awards on another page too. Â
Others involved in the issue a few days ago say that it is actually I whom is owed an apology – I think that is accurate … but not worth getting involved with. Â I apologized (way more than I should have Â – but it is done) … thank you for your support!!!
