TAKE A WORD 20 - GREEN


Another week and another word and this week Marie has chosen GREEN for our inspiration.  That got me thinking about the new couple who have moved in next door.   A spot of stickybeaking over the hedge informs me he likes to tinker with old gadgets and valves, whilst I have to report the lady of the house smokes!

Another great word Marie.

Thank you for looking.

Ann, your art is clever and creative. It's wonderful when art can make you smile, too. Those sure are peculiar neighbors! Great work, Ann!

Victorian steampunk in Ireland, and they packed up and moved in next door. Shurr and begorrah, you're in for a bit of a ride!!! Great stuff, Ann!

Well, Miss Ann, as you probably know the Irish are well-known story-tellers. My uncle-by-marriage was a Cork man and he truly believed in leprechauns, although he called them "the little people". He regaled us with tall tales and images not unlike those in your picture. Methinks you must have a touch of the Irish in you because you are a bit of a tall story teller!! I love your whimsical and funny glimpse of your neighbours. Fantastic artwork as always - and always entertaining. Whoohoo.
