Inspiration

8 Nov

I love when people ask me if they can use one of my images as inspiration for a painting.  I’ve had several of these requests.  The first was years ago, and I shared the results then, but I’ll share them again.

Last summer, I had someone ask if they could use a selfie I took with Joe as model for their painting.  I was lucky enough to purchase (for shipping) the painting after it was done being displayed.

The latest is this adorable rendition of Bullwinkle (Cinnamon’s triplet brother).

It really is nice to know my animals and photography inspire others.

Green, Green Grass Scavenger Hunt

23 Mar

I’m late for Scavenger Hunt Sunday, so I’m combining it with Song-ography.  The scavenger hunt items are:  what I did today, green, errand, in my kitchen and something old.  We had our choice for Song-ography, so I chose The Green, Green Grass of Home written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David.

I hope Millie isn’t mad that I’m using her for something old.  Really, she’s eleven, and I didn’t think she’d ever make it this far.  I’m certainly glad she has.

I do have her and Joe up north now.  They might think of it as a gray prison wall, but they do struggle with keeping up out in pasture.

They do still have green grass up there. And they even have old oak trees to stand beneath.

What I did today was my first game of hide-n-goat-seek.  It took 2 1/2 hours, but I won.  Silly Sallie took Annie out to pasture and left her.  I’m certainly going to shut them in while I’m at work tomorrow because it’s supposed to rain all day.

While all the goats were lounging on the hill just down the lane, Moose went on an errand to see if I’d put out any yummy hay.  He sure enough found the bit I’d put out for Sallie.

Finally, I have a ton of eggs in my kitchen.  I think I need to put a notice on Facebook that I have eggs for sale.

Not even Snickers can keep up with the hens now.

I’m also sharing with Macro Monday and I Heart Macro.
