Calendar 2017

by Buddy on October 27, 2016

New Calendar Alert
Good news.
Anne finished the 2017 Anne Made Calendar.
To order one you do have to go to the Zazzle website which can be a  pain in the butt…
BUT it’s the way we do our calendars now.

I thought I’d show you some of my fav paintings from the calendar.
(Never before seen by the general public)

Here’s Beth and her two cats…
Harry and Clara.
Our neighbors.
When Beth is out of town I go down and check up on these two hairy beasts.
I make sure they’re getting enough to eat.

Another painting from the new calendar.
It’s Cuthbert.
He loves a good box as you can see here.

Cuthbert is Pete’s cat.
I might have talked about Cuthbert before.
He’s the blind master of the Young Domain.
Anne wants to write a story about Cuthbert.

Speaking of stories…

Anne’s working on a story she’s calling ‘Dave and the Boys’.

Here they are. A man and his dachshunds…

They go everywhere together…

It’s a new thing she’s trying out.
She’s changing her definition of what a portrait can be.
It can be a little story that Anne illustrates.
With paintings and drawings.
She’s grooving on this new concept.

So that’s all for now.

Glad to touch base with you from time to time.
Anne is the reluctant social net-worker so here I am writing the blog.
Just me- blabblin’ on the blog
It is my blog after all- HAH!

 

grouchy and cheerful

Hey… We’re back. Happy New Year.

It’s been a while. I want you to know that Anne has been busy.  She’s drawing all the time. Here’s some of the stuff that is going on in her sketchbook. I hope you like it. I’m totally digging it.

These drawings really don’t call for much explanation. They speak for themselves. Enjoy!

I swear I’m going to be blogging more. I just have to get the hang of this again.

Anne gets all jammed up

Here’s Anne looking pensive in the studio…

she got a new phone/camera/device and is having adjustment problems. Gone is the iphone and say hello to an LG. Why did she do it. Seemed like a good idea. She’ll get used to it.

Here is some more stuff from the sketch/journal/idea book…

a tiny drawing…
(looks like she’s not getting much done).

sketch book

by Buddy on February 5, 2015

Anne really digs having sketchbooks. They come in all shapes and sizes. She’s also into the wonderful world of pens, markers, brush pens, nibs… don’t get her started on nibs.

I personally think it’s fun to look at other people’s
sketchbooks/journals/diaries/personal notation documents…
or whatever you want to call them.

So here’s a selection of pages for your entertainment…
