Gone, Baby, Gone!

Short post today as My Friend, Miss Mimi Hollace Green, is on her way over for an Art Shenanigans Experience. We have Michael's Coupons. Hoorah!

Yes, those little birdies flew the coop. And I saw it happen, but as far as a foto, no cigar.
Who knows? If we leave the nest, Ms Nuthatch might keep populating the landscape with one of my favourite fowl weather friends.

A new project, besides Dryad and Midsummer Night's Dream, is The Dialogues.

Here is the line drawing. I am trying to "clothe" the subject in dialogues, not unlike Violet and others you Peeps have seen in the past.

plus a quick sketch (this will eventually be a painting) of "Guan Yin of the Thousand Hands" ... it's a first draft, seriously. Nothing pretty about it.

And at the end of the day, I trust you will find your own dialogues -- inner or otherwise -- with what you need and love.

Take care! And apologies were going to be given for the lack of colour on this here post, but as Miss Mimi Hollace Green might say, "black and white are colours!"

Live From Athens,

The "lady of many arms" is extraordinary. I can't wait to see what transpires with her! - Jeanne p.s. Stay cool today and I will too.

Oh I do love the dialogue clothing. Sorry you missed the little nuthatches leaving the nest, but they gotta go sometime. Cheers

Though things did not go quite as planned, I did have a wonderful time with you and yours yesterday evening. Mr. Mimi Hollace Green and I do love spending time in the Happily Haunted Hollow you call home. Looking forward to coffee today if such should happen and whatever happens next, including but not limited to, a quick drive by a favorite haunt of mine and yours with said 50% off coupons. (Otherwise, I'll go without you. You understand.)

Very Truly Yours,

Mimi Hollace Green

Oh, an art shenanigans thing with Ms Hollace Green - I would like to see the outcome of this great collaboration! And I so agree with Ms MHG about black and white - those are the only colours that count. (PS I love combining drawings with words ... I do it most of the time ...)

Anairam said...

PS Where is my head? (You don't have to answer that.) I meant to add that I gave you an award on my blog.

Well, Hello Everyone.
Thanks for the kind visits and comments from all!
And I do appreciate the blog award, too, Anairam.

T is doing very well today after a stint in E.R. which I may or may not talk about later. And Miss Mimi Hollace Green and I did indeed have a bit of an art day Sunday. Always something, isn't it, Peeps?

Are the dialogues ones you have had or made up ones or from other sources? I am intrigued! Glad the birdies have flown the nest safely. Hope you had fun at Michaels!

Janet said...

Love the dialogues, LOVE the Thousand Hands, and I just saw Violet and she is beautiful!
