It’s that time again for the April A to Z Blog Challenge. I’ve done this one for quite a few years, and it’s always fun.

This time I decided to go with the miscellaneous type posts, which some days will be whatever I want, and other days will be a resurrection of my older posts that pretty much no one or very few ever saw.

So, here we go with Letter P …

PAINTING PICTURESDSC00040

I mentioned awhile back that I like to paint pictures. I’ve been drawing and painting forever it seems. I’d draw on most anything I could find…notebook paper, typing paper, the backs of old wallpaper rolls, butcher paper, manila paper, canvas, and even the walls in the house. (Yeah, got in trouble for that) 🙂 … My aunt would bring me reams of paper that was discontinued from her office…printed information on one side, blank on the other. Still have some of that around. Also, I have some of all my artwork from years gone by. I’ll be posting some occasionally.

Do you remember those drawing aptitude ads in magazines…draw this or that picture, and get a free analysis? I did that one time, when I was probably ten or eleven. It was a picture of Abraham Lincoln. I sent it in, and waited. Sure enough, I got a letter from the Art Institue, saying a representative would be visiting me. So the day came, and the man was very complimentary and wanted me to go to their school…but in a few years…as I wasn’t old enough at the time. Kind of good news, bad news…I was ready to go right then! 🙂

I’ve tried watercolors, and had a big easel I’d take out in the back yard, painting pictures of the dogs. I went through a horse phase after reading the “Black Stallion” series of books, and drew and colored a lot of those. Then I started in on acrylics. I’d tried oils, but I’m too impatient to wait on the drying time, so acrylics were just right.

I like doing pictures of animals the best. I’ve tried sketching portraits…they are not good, and scenery and still life just don’t grab me and make me want to paint them. So, animals, whether a real likeness, or more in the cartoon style, is what I like to do. Once I even entered a couple in the local fair. I didn’t win a ribbon, but hey, people saw my work!

I also like painting on rocks. Back in the day when ‘pet rocks’ were a fad, I painted my own. Lots of fun to see how they turn out, and I still do those sometimes… putting the word Peace and a peace sign on them.

Anyway, just wanted to keep my promise of posting some of the paintings I’ve done. Hope you enjoy them!DSC00041

HOWL – for SOCS – HOW

Standard

HOWL – for SOCS – HOW

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 25/17

***

Todays SOCS – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – has the prompt word ‘how’, to use ‘however’ we want to use it.

How can I come up with something using ‘how’? All I can think of is  little phrases I’ve heard, like ‘how now brown cow’, and ‘how’s it going?’ Also, there are lots of ‘how-to’ videos, and books, showing/telling how to do something. There’s also ‘Howdy Doody’, which was a children’s television show, back in the 50s, using a character marionette. I remember watching that, and thought it was pretty funny. That’s about all I can think of for ‘how’.   … However… I wrote this impromptu poem just now. I actually wrote it on paper, right before I started typing this post. So, it’s basically stream of consciousness poem writing, which is how I usually do my poetry. The words just come to me, pretty fast, and I write them down in a hurry, so as not to forget ‘how’ it went in my head. Anyway…hope you enjoy my poem. It uses ‘how’ in a different way. 🙂
