Painting Three horses.

I was looking at some of my paintings done few years ago,and I thought this was one I did not put on my blog yet. I saw that picture of the three horses in one of "Foster painting "How to" and I thought I try my hand at it. It turned out fairly good I think.

The Wolf

This is a story I had to write for the Writer's Guilt. We had to change the story somewhat. Here is my version.

The wolf

One early morning, the wolf woke-up. Streched himself, gave a wide yawn showing big teeth. Shooked and scratched all over his body, all the while looking around.

This place was unfamiliar to him, he arrived here only yesterday. The wood was densed and he could hear noises already. The birds were chirping away among themselves. The toc-toc of the wood-peckers in the tall trees.

The creatures of the forest, big and small, starting a new day of foraging, feeding and later, maybe sunning themselves or playing as the mood moved them.

He knew the routine so well. Was he not a creature of the wood himself? He hoped to be lucky today in finding a good meal. It seems so long since.......

Ah well, after what his cousin told him about this place and all the possibilities. He was confident that his lean days were over,. He must remember the warning also about the hunters. No fear, he could looked after himself, after all he was big and bold,was he not? Enough of this, he must look for his breakfast.

Upon coming to a clearing, he discovered a path, and wondered where it led to. After careful consideration, decided to investigate and to his surprise, he came upon a cabin and looking throught the window, he saw an old woman in bed. Very cautionly, and very,very quietly, he opened the door and glided on his tummy to the bed, and leaping, swallowed the old woman.

Returning outside to be on his way, he suddenly heard laughter and hiding behind a tree, spied this beautiful girl dressed in red. Long blond hair flowing in the wind as she skipped toward him, unaware of his presense. His mouth started to drooled at the sight of her and in his anticipation of the taste of such a beauty.

So busy was he at thought of sinking his theeth in such a palatable gift, he never heard the hunter coming upon him............there was no more wolf.

Painting: rooster and hen.

Scenery. I done this few years ago when Begona was here with her husband Michel who came here to work for Dr.Crozier a dentist. They were here for a couple of years. I met Begona while working for Dr.Crozier. We found out that we had the same interest, which was painting ,I never painted animals before and this was my first try. As one can see, the background is nice, but I can not say the same about the hen as I cover her feeet with grass. All in all I think I done very well for the first try at doing animals.
