Polar Vortex


 
 
When I heard the polar vortex was moving south, I thought of the woods.
I knew the rabbits and all their friends would be readying for the storm. Then hunker in with supplies.
 
Badger , always the most prepared.
Here on the edge of the woods, I tried an ancient technique
Started with a simple pinched bowl, then scraped out a design with a pointed tool,
Painted on glaze color of choice and when set; rubbed off with sponge in one direction. Continually rinsing your sponge so the glaze doesn't drag. Somehow there is green glaze on here, oops.
Oh, the herons are back. Hunting for luncheon in the dry grasses of the neighborhood.
 
Off to list this morning, hope its a grand week for you~

All Donkeys go to Heaven

It was a long journey but they finally made it. They just followed the butterfly angel; and if they lost sight of her during the night she would blow her Triton's Trumpet.

Its kind of silly; I only have this one frame and it fits a nine by twelve, but you can see what this donkey portrail looks like with a frame. I see I've left my sunglasses on the mantle but I can see my lucky pony horseshoe at the base of the fish.
 
I'm pretty sure I bought that frame at Dick Blick. They have silver ones too and they are on sale now.
Silver would be dandy for nighttime scenes,
Like this one. This city is mostly empty now, but all the innocents are being led to a better place.
I would give them my lucky horseshoe if I could, but there luck is holding steady with their guide. 
I have added two new café bowls to a collection. The two green ones on your left. The French put his beautiful viridian green on them, and sometimes it has a slight olive tinge. These are older ones, like The Amitie next to them.  Lovely things en masse look so right together, yes? Flowers, herds of deer, groves of fruit trees and café au lait bowls.  
 
and donkeys........xxx
