Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

Here's wishing us all a great weekend. I'm still behind with commenting, blogging and more and I hope that I really will be able to catch up on everything at the weekend! The situation in the Ukraine is very sad, my heart goes out to all who have lot their lives or who are hiding in the metro stations. When will this madness end?

Today I am sharing an A3 mixed media painting meant or Elizabeth's What's your style challenge at AJJ:





Some funnies / thinkies:





Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  2. This is beautiful. I love how you draped her hair over one eye and the LONG neck you gave her. This is a very nice entry for Bleubeard's and my theme at AJJ.

    That cat mural is amazing. Someone went to a lot of work to make it so realistic.

  3. Blue with gold is always classy, and she is definitely that. She's another beauty Valerie. And what a confident expression too. And those kitty photos are grown. The sleeping brown tiger cat reminds me of the cat I had Emmie. She's was a great cat. I hope you c=get caught up and also have a relaxing weekend. Hugs-Erika

  9. Good morning Your Sweet Valeriness, and thank you for creating another lissome, long-necked lady with luscious lips! Any ardent suitor wishing to festoon her neck with kisses would have to set aside a half hour. But what a lovely half hour that would be! I note that you are in your cat mood this weekend and I am not quite sure that I approve of showing these vicious bird murderers as cute, cuddly little pets. Oh, I can hear the screams from the cat people loud in my ears. Actually, I freely admit that an indoor cat is a fine and agreeable pet, but left to roam outdoors is capable of inflicting savage carnage on innocent songbirds and small mammals. Even the best fed cat hunts mercilessly. Today is bright and sunny here, but we still have enough snow to share with the rest of the world. Spring is on its way, however, close at hand now. The events in Europe are terrifying. This is how the second world war began, and a third such conflict would really be the end of all of us. We are determined not to learn from history. Stay safe, stay well, drink coffee, walk briskly, be happy. Hugs and kisses, David

    1. Glad you liked today's girl! Yes, the events in Russia are terrifying and too close to home. I am really scared, and I cant begin to imagine how the people of the Ukraine feel. On a happier noted, my cats were always house cats, and they watched the birds from the window and enjoyed them like a live TV event.
      Lets hope that the big catasteophe can be averted. Sorry if I sound a bit confused today, I am! Big hugs, Valerie

  10. War with Russia has threatened me for almost all of my life. We had bomb drills, we had peace rallies, we voted our convictions, we felt optimistic when the USSR dissolved…. but still, this is a surprise.

    I hope your recovery is going well.

    1. Yes, it feels like a nightmare come true. I feel very deeply for the people of the Ukraine, especially as my great grandparents came from there. Its so scary.
