Anything Amazonia!

Well, it's true - I love anything from the Amazon.  

Here's some Poison Dart Frogs that have had me enamored with their bright, beautiful colors.

I drew them with a pencil, outlined them in ink and then used colored pencils to finish.

I just used one of my sketch pads.  Quick and easy-peasy.

Grandma Cleavage

Well, what can I say - except that my mind is filled with regular odd thoughts, and odd images.  Blessed are the weird, right? Haha

This is such a bad photo - I took it with my little Nikon Coolpix and didn't work very hard at getting a decent shot.

This acrylic painting came into being after watching an episode of Family Guy where "Grandma Cleavage" was mentioned.  Then I thought of who would be the "model" for such an egregious image - and George's mom on the TV show Seinfeld came to mind.  

Now, I certainly don't want to get in trouble for portraying that this particular look is unattractive or undesirable in any way.  

In fact, I'm probably headed this way myself some day...

It's just what I see out there - along with many other looks, and some just stick in my mind more than others.

So, that's it - this is an acrylic on an 8x10" stretched canvas.  She has a wonderful home with a lovely lady in New Jersey that proclaimed "Grandma just arrived!  She looks just like me!"  

Now, that made my day!  :)
