I'm thankful for different cultures and family traditions! Many people are afraid of things that are different, but I think if you embrace differences, your life becomes richer.

This is a painting I did a while back. Pumpkin pie is my favorite dish during this festive holiday. So, Pumpkin Pie Here I Come!
A humming, a twitter, a buzz, a noise beyond hearing emanated from the deep, dark, depth of the closet.
Perhaps unnoticed or not believed, perhaps thought to be imagined or seen as night's shadows dancing.
"You there. I see you. Yes you." And in a breath Felix and Mortimer were side by side, face to face and eye to eye.
"It is a well known fact that Gnomes live among us unseen. This has been going on for a long, long time and we like it that way. Sometimes people will see us and do not believe it, this happens all the time. You got to be nuts to believe in little people, you need glasses. Well those are the rules and that is just the way it is. Grow up! And go back to sleep I am just a dream. Forget about it."
Surrounded by white fluffy clouds flying in a toy red boat Felix steers and guides not knowing where. Mortimer wedged in the front of the boat with arms out stretched like a plane.
The Island is lush and green and thick with forest.

I had in my mind the thought of the wonderful imagination of a child, and how fun it would be if those wild things were fun furry things that came in at night to play hide-and-seek with!
Background got a bit messy, unfortunately. And apparently I still am unsure of how to upload my image properly (so that when you click on it, it opens up enlarged)... assistance please? Thanks!!!

I admit I'm doing double duty with this piece. I'm using it for this week's WaWe adventure prompt, but also IF's unbalanced.
Crossing the creek by way of stepping stones, was not as easy as Victoria thought it would be. Only one of them on this adventure didn't seem to have any trouble: Whiskers. Cats were just nimble that way. Claude on the other hand, didn't even make it to the first rock without sliding in. Well, "sliding" wasn't exactly the word to describe what he did, more like "galumpfed" in. Thank goodness Nevin wasn't around to see this. As far as big brothers go, Nevin was the worse. He always complained about how clumsy and klutzy Victoria was. It was a relief he wasn't here to see this spectacle.

Not sure what kind of adventures he'll be having, but he sure looks comfy in his little teacup :-)

And there he was from out of the shadows.
I've pulled them into today's PbIdMo scenario too.
Here's Moanalua Munkie:

The girl is Eleanor. She is an orphan. Nobody knows what's on her mind because she's so distant and cold. Just one thing, she's always carrying an empty bird cage around.
Honestly, i was so nervous while painting this illo 'cos i'm still practicing with watercolors. I'm not very good at this medium, my watercolor drawings start well, but i always manage to ruin them in the end :D
I hope i didnt ruin too much this time, i dunno... but i tried to do the best i could for WaWe ^_^
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Does he look familiar? I think he looks a lot like the puppy I did for theFrankenstein prompt and the Halloween character prompt and maybe a little like this puppy too. They are all supposed to be the same kind of dog, so maybe they’re different puppies from the same litter.
For the Wild Thing prompt, I was originally going to do an image of the characters from the book/movie, but then I decided to do something slightly different in the style of Maurice Sendak. It took a lot longer than I thought it would to complete this painting, and honestly I could have spent another week or so on it to make it look the way I wanted it to look. Since I have other projects that I need to get done, I cut a few corners to finish the painting. There are parts I really like and parts I wish I could have spent the time to do right. I think I’ll be using some of the techniques and the palette in future paintings to see what happens. So, here’s my wild (chicken) thing painting.
