Thursday/Friday Post

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well! Today I am sharing an A4 painted fish made for Mia's challenge at AJJ. The background is cream, and the fish in real life a bit lighter, but I had to take the photos with my smartphone as I can't find my camera. It's always awful if you clear up because then you can't find anything! I think this fish is the partner the lover lady fish was looking for!





I will also be linking to Nicole's FFO and Gillena's Friday fun

Some funnies:

It's a boy!






And this week my dear and much loved water pen, which I bought back in 2004,  started to leak, and I had to get rid of it. I have done so much with this brush it's really hard to lose it.  I do have a few more ready to be used, this one was just my favourite. Silly, but true!.



A cloudy sunrise:

I  was awake very early and watched the sun rise through the clouds. Then I made myself a coffee and went back to bed and slept for another 3 hours!


 




Lots of people enjoying the hot weather:



And ducks enjoying  the water:



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

  20. Good morning, Valerie: I had quite expected to read about your dinner at the swanky place you told us about when you were looking for something suitable to wear. I hope that your silence doesn't mean that it wasn't good. That handsome male fish should have no trouble finding a girlfriend. I guess when talking of fish we'd better not say they get hooked on each other. Your sunrise shots are pretty impressive. I am amazed that you can have a coffee and then go back to bed and sleep for three hours. The caffein would kick in for me and I would be awake again in no time. I don't know whether you have been watching the January 6 hearings, but it is both fascinating and deeply disturbing to see how one individual can pervert the system so thoroughly and have a whole cadre of sycophants gather round him to perpetuate one lie after another. If these people are not voted out of office I am at a loss to explain what that will say about the USA. We are going for a walk with Heather and Lily this morning. Lily just turned two and we haven't seen her for weeks. Hugs and kisses - David.

    1. I will tell about my dinner on my blog next week, it was wonderful. I had grilled salmon with a pesto glaze, and a HUGE salad, both were wonderful. And cheese cake with salted caramel ice, drizzled with caramel sauce. Yummy! I know what you mean about fish neeing hooked, not the best expression! I have been listening to the january 6th hearings, and sometimes it makes me want to vomit. Really unbeliebable. So glad you will be meeting Lily and Heather again. 2 years old! Where did the time go! Please take lots of photos!

  21. You have the best lips on your fish. He looks ready to find his mate and give her a big smack. He's got to be a fun colorful kissing fish. And sorry about your brush. I get how sad it is to lose something you've been through so much art with. It's how I feel about a few of my rubber stamps, and the thought of even purging them-smile. That is the cutest duck photo too. The duckling I should say. Have a great start to your weekend. It is warming up here also. Hugs-Erika

  24. That's a gorgeous fish Valerie loving those lips.. look great for kissing, not that I'm a fish kisser haa haa.. I near choked on my coffee at the mushroom hee hee so funny :)) Showed it to hubby who is in need of cheering up as he's tested positive for Covid today, he had a good giggle too. I hope you can find a spot on replacement for your favourite waterbrush, I always feel lost when my everyday tools break down.
    Wishing you a creative weekend Hugs Tracey x

  28. Lovely summer photography Valerie! I love the funnies! The duck made me smile. Your fish is gorgeous!! I love the big lips and the blue colours! Thank you for reminding me to try the watercolor pen that I bought years ago and forgot about! Sorry yours is toast now! I have a favourite watercolor brush and if something ever happened to it, I'd be lost!
