an IDLE bunny? I think NOT!

Actually, there are NO idle little bunnies in my neighborhood. We have very LARGE rabbits that are not afraid of anything. They keep circling our garden looking at the buffet inside. They staged a break in by digging under the fence one day, so I had to place a few deterrent bricks to block their door. I may need to hire some border patrol police. Where ARE those garden gnomes when you need them? They are supposed to be watching the place.... goodgollybum...

A floating cow? Sure, cows can float if they are HOLLOW... and full of methane gas. Or if they happen to be a Holy cow like this one.

This is a 24"x30" oil painting I did recently. It was a lot of fun to do. Now I'm wondering what do do with it. : )

Michael Jackson loves propane

I was going to title this post "Propane" but then thought that if I could tie it into the Michael Jackson mania, I might lure some unsuspecting Googlers to my blog. Anybody fall for it? ...Anybody?

I am easily entertained.

The propane tank on my grill was empty so I went to Home Depot to swap it out for a full one. I usually go inside, hunt down a helpful worker, pay for it, and then we go outside and do the exchange. This time as I was lugging my tank to the door I noticed that there was now a sign that said PROPANE SELF SERVE CENTER by the tanks. I touched the screen to begin, swiped my card, and indicated that I wanted to exchange my tank.

After a short pause... one of the doors on a long bank of bins popped open. I walked down to the empty bin, put my tank into it and shut the door. Then I walked back to the screen and waited a few seconds. I was just starting to think that with my luck, nothing will happen and I will have to go get an employee and try to convince them that I actually DID put in a tank, and didn't get one in return (being the optimist that I am) when all of a sudden another door popped open down the line. I walked down to it, pulled out the full tank, and closed the door. COOL!

I walked back to the screen, took my receipt and was off! It was so much fun I wanted to do it again! The only suggestion I would have is that it would be great to have Vanna White there to walk back and forth in front of the wall of bins and open up the right door for you. I can't wait till my tank is empty again and I can go back!

I am easily entertained.

I am drawing lots of monsters for a project right now. This morning I thought I would make a quick SHAKY coffee monster. This would fit in with the Illustration Friday word of the week and let me warm up drawing a monster. I was just going to add a bit of quick tone to my pencil sketch with Photoshop... but then I added a touch of color. I had to hold myself back... I wanted to keep on adding color! It's so much fun! But alas, I had to restrain myself (duct tape works well for this) so I can get on with making more monsters.

Thanks for stopping by!
