My Art Interpretation for Ylvis - The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)


Not too long ago, my daughter McKenna showed me a music video performed by Ylvis - The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?) .  At the time I viewed it, I thought "Wow - this is one very Unique - Catchy - Entertaining - Creative song/video."  And...  I loved it for all of those reasons!!   So, just the other day I thought I would paint my interpretation of it using mixed media. 

Here are a few close ups.  Now you truly have to watch the you tube video to really understand my interpretation or you won't really follow along or for that matter "get it".  



This Music Video, which has over 383,495,138 views,  is one that you will either 'Like' or 'Dislike'.  Me??  "I LIKE IT' because it is so Creative!!

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone!

Happy Painting!  Cheers!  and ... Break a Bristle.

ART at Linden Line Designs

Here is a photo of my daughter - McKenna.  She has been my web designer at Linden Line Designs for 9+ years.  (At Linden Line Designs I make dog collars, dog harnesses, leashes, snoods and more). 

Not only is she the web designer, she has maintained the entire LLD website all these years as well.  And, all of this web knowledge is self-taught. 

She has been working on a new logo at LLD which combines my sewing and my art:

I think it is pretty darn cool.  She actually has a sewing needle on the left with sewing stitches that turn into a solid line that is represented by the paint brush!  Pretty cool, indeed. 

She has been working very hard at combining the Pet Products side of Linden Line Designs with the Original Art side of Linden Line Designs

So, this post is to thank my daughter for so many things; designing such a beautiful website all these years, combining LLD to represent Pet Products and Original Art, and for just being her. 

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Art by Joan Princing on display, really :)

 Here is one of the main reasons why I have been falling behind in a few online art classes that I am currently taking:  



Drum roll, please

Guess where I am standing? I am standing in front of a few pieces of my artwork that are on display at The Rog, Art Gallery and Mt. Si Art Supply, office and printing store!

These pieces will be on display for the entire month of March. AND... on March 22 there will be an Art Expo featuring The Mt Si Artist Guild and me, too The reception will be from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

So if you live in the area, stop by and say hello. All of the artists will be there. And more importantly - there's "Chocolate"!! 


Tomorrow, I will reveal the other main reason for falling behind ....  stayed tuned :)

Photo Session

My daughter, McKenna and I were having lots of fun during our Artist Statement photo session.  We must have taken up to 50 photos before deciding on which one to use.  I must tell you, there was tons of goofing off and laughter!  I will display our ‘behind the scenes’ photo, shortly.  For now, here is the one we chose to use for my new Artist Statement promo which I needed for a very special reason.  Can't wait to tell you all about the new adventures I have for in store for the entire month of March!

Until next time,

Happy Painting! Cheers! and ... Break a bristle.
