PFFFT! That's dads' camera work!

Wendy said...

That was a quick response! I didn't even have time to put the kettle on! It doesn't suit me anyway.....

Hootin'Anni said...

Mine's posted if you'd like to drop by.

I have tried deveral times to leave a comment on ChrisB's page to enter one of my stained glass projects in her "fun Monday" whatsit, but it doesn't work, and when I go onto the karmyns fun site the computer "hangs" and the only way out is to reset it! I've given up.... !

Karmyn R said...

Oh - VERY NICE! I love Chickadees. You have a talent.

mjd said...

Your painting is beautiful. I can see why the invitation was extended.

PI said...

Keith put it on yours then and maybe I'll put a rug I made on mine.
John your painting is beautiful. I treasure a Wood Warbler which a late friend did years ago but yours is my favourite.

Willowtree said...

Wow John, that's really something! You should be very proud of that.

ChrisB said...

John you know I greatly admire this painting and everyone please note he was still a teenager when he painted this. John hope you don't mind me saying this but I haven't actually given away the age!!

headless chicken said...

Wow,this is good.
No jokes with my comment today...I really am impressed!

PI said...

chrisb: John has told us his age.

theotherbear said...

Wow - too impressed. If I tried to paint birds they would have to be abstract. AT least, that's what I'd tell people it was when they didn't work out!

Jenni said...

Wow! This is one of the best entries yet!

john.g. said...

Ooooh, I,m embarrased now.....

Old Git said...

Pfft! I've seen better!

zoe said...

bloody hell john - you were right - that's priceless!

john.g. said...

Thanks Zoe!

Old Git, I'll deal with you tomorrow!

Anonymous said...

Zoe - Don't you mean "worthless"?

john.g. said...

Nice try Keith!

Joy T. said...

I'm so glad you entered, your painting is gorgeous. I'm listening to chickadees outside my office window right now and I never get tired of them. Blue Jays yes! Chickadees never. Love the banner of your blog as well!

john.g. said...

Joy t. Thanks, that was kind.

The Artist formerly Known as Purpleworms (!) said...

John, It is lovely - I'd like to see what you can paint now!! (Ask Chrisb - I can be quite a nag - but I hate to see talent go to waste!)

john.g. said...

Purpleworms, thanks, but i'm afraid painting is out of the question now.

Minx said...

Beautiful John, and the painting's not bad either.

john.g. said...

Minx, you tease. Good to hear from you at last!

sablonneuse said...

Hello John.G. I've just popped over from Yaxlich after the question of a lost mojo. After reading some of your posts I don't think you've lost yours. I'll be back!

Pamela said...

I wasn't born in 1979

*ducks to avoid being slapped*

PI said...

1979 was a memorable year - not least because John was born, I ran away, got divorced and got married with a month to spare.

john.g. said...

Pat, I was born in 1962. Now that WOULD have been good to paint like that as a 1 year old!!!!!!!!!

DQ, slap, shit, missed. hee, hee.

Sablonneuse, welcome, but Istill have no idea about mojo!

Pamela,thanks!

TLG, you're too kind.

Woodlandmama, cheers.

Melissa, don't be jealous, ta anyway!

Drama Queen said...

Wow you were just a youngster when you painted that. . .!!

PI said...

i think I'm going bonkers!

john.g. said...

DQ, why, how kind!

Pat, going bonkers? lol.

Beccy said...

I'm absent for a few days and look what happens!

I'm delighted you posted the picture.

Sally Lomax said...

That's beautiful! Did you used to do a lot of painting? You are obviously talented.

john.g. said...

Sally, I did a lot of painting, but alas no more.

Ricardipus said...

Gah, sorry, missed this post when you first put it up.

That painting is freakin' excellent. Sorry about the inarticulateness but that's all I can think to say at the moment.

Just freakin' excellent.

john.g. said...

R.P. thanks.

phoenix said...
