My Yellow Cottage

Yellow Cottage
 I used Stamps, Prismacolor pencils, gel pens, pastels.  Barn, doggie, Yellow cottage with Porch, pond surrounded by rocks, trees and white picket fence.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for Paint Party Friday. Be sure to visit the artists to see the variety of works and learn how to. . .some have videos and introduce a variety of new art how-to.  I thank all of you for the visits and comments. It is helping me tremendously.

 I Kittah sat today. . .he got on the living room window sill and watched the squirrels eat. GAZ made strange little sounds. . .calling to them.  I hadn't heard that before from a Kittah.
 The Fountain is in the background and the birds are lined up waiting their turn.
 At times the clouds look like this.
 The fountain. . .love the looks and the sounds.
 My new windows.
 Sometimes the clouds look like this.
 There is a horse in the window and one outside.
 Both horses are eating the tree. . . a gate separates them.
 When faced with senseless drama, spiteful criticisms and misguided opinions, walking away is the best way to stand up for yourself. To respond with anger is an endorsement of their attitude. ~ Dodinsky


  1. Our kitties do this thing called 'chattering' when they see a squirrel or a bird outside that they'd just love to chase. It's such a weird sound!

    I could really handle some time out in the country in a little yellow cottage right about now! Happy PPF!

  2. Great little drawing and what a wonderful place t live...xx

  3. A pretty drawing for today! Lovely! Your photos are wonderful too. It looks very pleasant and nice where you are :)

  4. Glad you made a pond by the side of the house. I have a pond near me and love the thought of water being so close. Nice picture.

  5. Lovely yellow cottage, Janet. I have never heard the Dodinsky quote before but it is certainly a wise statement.

  6. Lovely post ~ delightful art work that reminds a bit of GrandMa Moses whose art work I love ~ love the horses and what a sweet kitty ~ thanks, ^_^
