Souvent la fable…

🐾🐾 SO TRUE SUGARS, ANIMALS ARE ALWAYS TEACHING US AND FABLES ARE A PERFECT LESSONS.

Désert Occidental

Tu dis quoi ?

Souvent la fable
veut nous convaincre
Du caractère animal du bon sens

Les objets en demeure de faire pareil ou même
S’arment de patience.

Ainsi
Les seaux ont bien des anses
Attendant de pouvoir voyager
& les murs des oreilles
Tout en restant très muets.

À l’inverse, il est vrai
Les sots ont des oreilles
& trainent les rumeurs
Avec certaine aisance.

Se promener, flâner, musarder, se balader, se baguenauder, glander…le temps est radieux, un peu frais, la vague à peine retroussée, le regard se perd dans un horizon mal défini qu’une brume lumineuse estompe…Vous arrivez, courant, soufflant, je m’écrase contre la haie toute bourdonnante d’activité qui borde le chemin des douaniers. Les yeux nulle part, vous passez sans voir ; des papillons en tenue de soirée batifolent, les frelons asiatiques siphonnent avidement le suc des fleurs, un nuage d’ailes translucides crépite autour de moi…

African Wild Dog

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 HI DEARS! THE EXPRESSION OF THIS SKETCH IS SO ACHIEVED, THAT IS ALREADY ENOUGH AND DOESN’T NEED ANY EXPLANATION.

Melanie Franz

A friend gave me the book Solo the Story of an African Wild Dog by Hugo Van Lawick.

I knew nothing about wild dogs beforehand. Absolutely loved the story which is a description of a pack of wild dogs and in particular the story of Solo, one of the cubs.

I only learned that the story of Solo is somewhat famous after reading the book. I certainly had fun sketching this little dog.

HILTON BANKSIDE

🏙️🐶🎨 HELLO SISTERS! SOMETIMES INSPIRATION IS IN THE STREET. A FUNNY EXPERIENCE.

DALTONSART

The above photos are a few images from a 3 day live painting session. All in aid of a bit of exposure for the new Hilton Hotel near Bankside. Sat at a corner on Southwark street near London Bridge for 11 hours in total, a completely different work environment then usual, but I completed a canvas that depicts the new building and a massive fox…. ‘A FOX? Why is there a fox?’

OH! I’m glad you asked. Well it is a fox themed hotel, and apparently the story goes that the fox was there first customer! As when they were building this new hotel, a fox was found sleeping inside.

winter faerie

🤍❄️🤍 HELLO DARLINGS! COLD IS HERE AND A GREAT FAMILY PORTRAIT TOO. GREAT ART, CONGRATS!

Gretchen Del Rio's Art Blog

watercolor 1/2021

‘I wonder if the snow loves the trees

and the fields, that it kisses them so gently?

And then it covers them up snug,

you know with a white quilt;

and perhaps it says “Go to sleep,

darlings, til the summer comes again.’

…………….Lewis Caroll

I painted this for my daughter. It joins another earlier Christmas piece which only comes to view during the holidays. It’s like bringing out all those ornaments for the tree. Always a bit of magic felt.

I would give to you peace and light for this new year.

Feathered Friends

🟩 HELLO HONEYS.OFTEN IN ART, MIXING, WITH CONTROL, IS THE SECRET, AS IN THIS BEAUTIFUL WORK.

Tiffany Arp-Daleo Art

I’m getting into bird watching as I get older. We have multiple hummingbird feeders around the house, as well as dry bird seed for the finches, doves, and various birds, of course we deal with squirels as well. I think connection with nature is important, it keeps us real!

On a completely different topic, I finally created a Twitter account for my “professional brand” @tiffanyarpdaleo. For the last 13 years, I have operated my personal account @taaduh, but never bothered to create a Twitter account for my professional site, until today!

If you like to tweet, please follow me on Twitter at @tiffanyarpdaleo and of course, I will follow you back! 🙏🤗😁

devoured

🐺🌲🐺🌲🐺 SO TRUE, BEAUTIES. QUIXOTIC MAMA SAW THE WOLVES AND AS USUAL SHE MADE THIS STUNNING AND GENUINE SKETCH.

Quixotic Mama

i saw the wolves
shortly after i made my wish
to be devoured
“i wasn’t serious,” i told the universe
in a bit of a panic
wondering what message i should get
from a moon waxing gibeous
as a wolf stalked before me
behind me
beside me
three wolves at dusk
under an october moon.

odds are they were coyotes, but they looked like wolves to me. and i had just thought how nice it would be to disappear–devoured by a werewolf….
i am used to coyotes being slinking yellow things, but these were tall & bold. i was walking my dog after having a fight with my children. i heard the rustling & turned around expecting deer, but instead a wolf/coyote ran across the road several yards away. another started to follow but stopped when she saw me. i stood tall; she stood tall. and then she disappeared again…

more moth – Mothra!

🤩 WELL DARLINGS, MOTH OR LEAVES, IT DOESN’T MATTER, IN FACT THIS IS AN STUNNING WORK. THE COLORFUL STROKES LIKE A TEXTURE ARE SO GORGEOUS. BRAVO ALETHA !!!

Aletha Kuschan's Weblog

moth two thirds way

The drawing that I chronicle here continues to gain more stuff.  I say “more moth,” but it’s really more leaves — though aspects of the moth evolves as well.  I see the edges of the moth in relation to the leaves, and it’s necessary to get the leaves in there so that everything can be altered later as necessary.  You can’t know what you want to change until it’s there to see.

This 32 x 24 inch drawing is preparatory for a painting.  The painting is larger and includes another element not present in this study.  I have a second more careful preparatory drawing that’s in the works as well.  These are the rehearsals.

A polyphemus moth in real life is large, easily 4 inches across.  This moth, of course, is much larger — though not as large as Mothra.  And it won’t be transporting any Japanese girls anywhere.  Nor…
