bounce bounce bounce

I have been so busy the past 3 days its not even funny, so here is a video of Sky being a kangaroo :p and a Scottish word of the week

Scottish word:

1. girse

Answer to the last word:

1. shoogly means shaky

There was a huge dictionary of Scottish words that I saw a few months ago and I should have grabbed it then, since I'm running out of words fast. If I see it again I really have to remember to grab it and lug it home. And now off to draw while the crazy one sleeps :p

Tired of Seeing Green?

Copyright Jennifer Rose Phillip

Almost finished *does a little dance* 3 hours I worked on this today :/ which on one hand is great that I managed to draw so much with having Sky around, but on the other hand I should have the whole thing done by now. Over 2 months is way too long for one piece. I think a graphite piece will be next, unless I want to drive myself even more insane using CPs for black fur lol

 And another video of Sky in the park, catching a frisbee but not doing very well on the bringing back part lol

I've mentioned before how much I hate code, and math is not my strong suit, so add numbers and percents into the mix and I want to chuck my laptop off the roof and draw the mess that results (100 points if a ned is hit in the process :p)

But here is what I have so far, a rough start after Mr.F showed me how div tags work and then told me of a few links and handed me some books and said "here, know you learn". hmph. Thanks, Mr I have a computer degree, very helpful :p

Sky and the Strawberry

Copyright Jennifer Rose Phillip

Art! About time people are probably thinking lol Just the petals on the dragons head to colour and then the yellow/orange gold work and I will finally be done. And then maybe a portrait of Sky (after I figure out what to do with my site, which is really in need of work).

Speaking of Sky:

And today is Mr.F's birthday, anyone for cake?

Replacement for Mrs F

Mr F here :-) So to save some dinero I have replaced Mrs F with this knitted fluffy Eeyore, however sadly the amount of complaining has remained consistent if not increased....
Also Sky seems to be rather non plussed with the replacement for Mrs F. Hmm back to the drawing board methinks........

Spring is in the Air

About time as well. I love snow, but enough was enough. It is so nice to finally see the flowers popping up (even if these are the neighbours :p), would have loved to get video of Sky in deeper snow tho. She loved it when it snowed last time, and that was less then an inch. Can't image what she would do if there was 5 inches on the ground, snow dog? Hook a sled up to her? :p
And a puppy tooth. Which explains why I caught her knawing on one of my pencils :/
The last vestiges of snow in the mountains (*curses the tree in the way*). Pretty soon there will be green everywhere and we will be praying for the return of the cold weather. I always do that. Sick of the hot weather by the middle of summer, hoping for snow soon and then by February I am hoping for the sun to come back.
Online friend Ingrid sent me this lovely book, with images printed from her Art Cards. It is a great example of her art, with lots of great imagery :D
And Chrissy sent me a copy of her booklet (if only Henry Cavill was sent in the mail :p its nice having a pretty desktop lol), plus an art card and one of her lovely cards :D

All of these booklets have really made me want to make up a Zine (like I don't have enough to do already lol), but I would really have to think hard about what I would want to include. Art, tutorials, pictures, travel stories? All of the above probably :)

Scottish Word of the Week April 5,2010

Mondays photo of the week is supposed to be Easter themed, so I tried putting my bunny ears on Sky, but she wanted to eat them. So I tried having her pose with a little bunny stuffed toy....but she wanted to eat that too :p And now she really wants to get the bunny from the shelf, hmm should introduce her to the Furby. Would either be mean to do that, or really funny ;)

But here is a photo of Sky where she doesn't look so depressed (something she does when she knows she shouldn't be doing something but hopes the sad puppy eyes will means she gets away with it...no)

And art! Sort of. I have worked on this a bit more since this photo was taken, and was hoping to have it finished already but Sky seems to have other ideas :p Lots of different shades of greens and blues, which hopefully will show up better when this is scanned.

April Fools Day

I hate this day :/ Not just because it was the day I was told my dog had died, but because some people use it as an excuse to do mean tricks on people. Whats wrong with your simple woopie cushion on the chair? or chalk stuck in the chalkboard dusters? or gum that turns your mouth blue? :p none of which I've ever done. Of course not.... :p (hmmm the gum probably was toxic, I don't think people use chalkboards anymore, and can you get woopie cushions anymore?)

One of the few pics of Loch that I have. I wish I had of had a digital camera back then, would have had hundreds of photos. So because we have one now, I am taking pics of Sky all the time. I think she is starting to think of ways to sabotage the camera so I will stop pointing it at her. (I'm sure that is why she was trying to dig a hole in the back. To sneak the camera away...I hope it was the camera and not a body o.0 )
