Mila is a definite bouncer and loves to play so I have to be extra careful - not as quick as I used to be!!


Yep, happened to us all!

Shortly after adopting Eva, I thought it would be cute to get a picture of her as a big lap dog... Well, after picking her up and positioning in the chair she decided (Miss Stubborn) that she wasn't a lap dog and didn't want to become one. Eva stretched and popped her head back so the top of her bony skull slammed into my forehead giving me a painful lump.

Weeks later, after she became more familiar with us and with the aid of a few treats, she complied with the photo op!

Eva Says "Dobes Not Lap Dogs" - (Except for HV Treats)




After that incident, I refer to our two Dobes as "The Knuckleheads". Spock has a real prominent occipital protuberence/sagittal crest which could cause some real damage to another humans or animals....

On a side note, my truck has two eyeballs now!

Had to tell them, "Over there!"

Who says Guthrie is boring?



SP, help us decode your Guthrian dialect....


Q1: What are your other (3) TV's using as antennas?

Q2: Where is the "forbidden zone" that Frank's chicken went to?

Q3: EMSA is ambulance, correct? Maybe, your neighbors just opened their Directv or HughesNet bill for the month...?

Q4: You got a "new" truck with cat-eye type, bulbous headlights? Is this a subtle hint that you finally came over to Ford, didya'?

Another thing you can do which sometimes works if you think you've gotten too dark--if you have a kneaded eraser, you can sorta blot with it on an area where you think you've gone too dark (don't rub at the area; just tap it with your eraser). Sometimes knowing you can repair a mistake (at least to some extent) helps you to get your nerve up.

And you can always start light and then get darker and darker. Like I said, though, my drawings aren't normally anywhere near this dark.

But you're right; I hate it when you've got your masterpiece almost done, almost just right, and you've got to figure out whether to take a chance by correcting or adding something. It's downright scary.

Guess time to try and draw again - always goes in phases...
See, this one is pencil. It's just not as dark and is more like the way I usually draw (drew? I haven't really drawn for years--except for that evil rooster). Not many dark lines--I just tried to let the shading make a line show up.



The problem I always have is with backgrounds...my pictures just seem to sit there in open space. Apparently, that is a sign of an "artist" who hasn't quite developed as much as they should (according to the teacher in the class I took, though he was a little bit nicer in how he said that). Your teacher says "darker"! Mine would always say..."pay as much attention and give as much care to the background as you do to the subject" Like in your cherry picture...it is clearly sitting there on a table, casting a shadow. I never quite understood how to do that.

So something I started doing, just for practice, was to draw my main picture, make a copy of it and then try to do "something" with the background. But there was still that fear factor of messing up if I found something that I thought worked and wanted to try it on the original.

This one is a copy of the bird on a fencepost (charcoal, that's why it's darker), with an attempt at a background. I was too scared to try anything on the original.



Maybe I should try to get back into drawing. I just hit a block with that background thing. Watching the other people in the class, I decided I was good at "copying" something, but not at making it art. They'd talk about the selection of the part of a still life or scene they wanted to emphasize, the composition, darks, lights, technique, media, etc. to make a whole piece of art--I would draw...a bird.

Sometimes a good bird (or horse or dog or whatever), but just that, floating there on the page, all by itself.

Nice try, LaDi, I'm not a talented flutist, like the late Ray Thomas of the Moody Blues, but Mel is right- drums.
You didn't date Ray, too, did you?

Yep - I know what you mean by hitting a block! I have bought so many drawing books it isn't funny! And watched YouTube all the time.

Thinking if I find the right drawing book - I could draw!!!

That's like if I buy the $2000 guitar I would be able to play the guitar....ha ha....no I don't have one

And I am jealous! those are great! I like em! I see what you mean about the light and shading making the line/form. I can see your ferret? standing in grass - even though cant see his feet/paws I know they are there.

And I am jealous! those are great! I like em! I see what you mean about the light and shading making the line/form. I can see your ferret? standing in grass - even though cant see his feet/paws I know they are there.
You can draw! Maybe you're just being picky.

Ferret vs weasel?? I can't remember--my son tends to request pictures of both. I think that one may have been a weasel???

Okay,

A1: Wall antennas plugged into the TVs. The flat ones.

A2: Long story short, coop is 8'x10' or 12'. They have and enclosed, outdoor area which is roofed and about the same dimensions. Coop is surrounded by sheep wire approximately 30'x70'. Frank, squeezed through the sheep wire and wouldn't conform and let me herd her back to the open door to the coop!

A3: Guthrie paramedics pulled in my drive way to ask if this was 1900. I said no, over there. I was on my way out to check on the chickie babies and when they pulled in all I could do was shrug my shoulders like, "Nobody here called you". It was the bad neighbor wife's Dad.

A4: NO!

LMAO

I stand corrected, SP, you are indeed correct, the proper term is Guthritian.

Ref previous CT Post:

https://www.dobermantalk.com/non-dob...ml#post3956361

Flat wall antennas with no power supply (either USB or AC/DC adapter) = passive HDTV antennas.

You can upgrade to the Mohu type powered, active interior wall flat antennas to see if improves reception (remember order off Amazon, carefully unpack to try out one, return if not good enough) If that doesn't work, you might need to purchase the amplified splitter and run all TV's off existing rooftop antenna.

The problem I always have is with backgrounds...my pictures just seem to sit there in open space. Apparently, that is a sign of an "artist" who hasn't quite developed as much as they should (according to the teacher in the class I took, though he was a little bit nicer in how he said that). Your teacher says "darker"! Mine would always say..."pay as much attention and give as much care to the background as you do to the subject" Like in your cherry picture...it is clearly sitting there on a table, casting a shadow. I never quite understood how to do that.

So something I started doing, just for practice, was to draw my main picture, make a copy of it and then try to do "something" with the background. But there was still that fear factor of messing up if I found something that I thought worked and wanted to try it on the original.

This one is a copy of the bird on a fencepost (charcoal, that's why it's darker), with an attempt at a background. I was too scared to try anything on the original.



Maybe I should try to get back into drawing. I just hit a block with that background thing. Watching the other people in the class, I decided I was good at "copying" something, but not at making it art. They'd talk about the selection of the part of a still life or scene they wanted to emphasize, the composition, darks, lights, technique, media, etc. to make a whole piece of art--I would draw...a bird.

Sometimes a good bird (or horse or dog or whatever), but just that, floating there on the page, all by itself.
Mighty fine copying!!

The woman, that I used to board Stryker with, took up painting and she's good! She copies photos.

I am A Okay with pencil, as well.

I almost bought a how to draw book at Barnes and Noble a few months back when I was killing my lunch hour. Somehow, "Get the hell out of this store" came to me.

And, Dammit, Ma!

Chickens aren't evil!

Are you on crack? What makes you think I am going back to ml#post3956361?

That's what we got Ma for!

Once in a while I will go back to reminisce but even that is just too much work.
