Kerry's Colourful Characters



This is my last addition to Kerry's book. My colourful characters are C├ęzanne's three basic forms in nature - the sphere, the cone and the cylinder - and each is coloured with one of the three primary colours. Hope you approve, Kerry

It'll be in the post as soon as I can arrange it.

September Update

Take a Bow

 My moly found it's way home. What a marvelous treasure. Clare, you needn't worry about your watercolor efforts. It was such a beautiful display. I will be sure to photo/video the whole spread to share with everyone when I get a free moment this week.

Thank you all so very much for lending your time and talents to my book. I know some of you still have a round or two to get your books back, but please do give some consideration to whether or not you'd be interested in another go around with this group. I can't believe what an amazing success we've had so far. You all rock, first and second group, alike!

xoxo
Melissa

Alison From our First Moly_x_25 Swap......

I am slow, really slow!

I have just found out that Alison Horridge who participated in our first swap has published her 'Painted Memories' into a beautiful book. It is a delightfully, delicious memoir, which for me brought back so many wonderful childhood memories I'd all but forgotten. It is for sale or as Alison Say's, 'You can read it all for free'. After reading it I definitely want a copy.
Clare.

I had a difficult time deciding between a few ideas for your book Kerry. I considered the characters from the Wizard of Oz, A peacock and Elton John. Scanning the internet, I found an amazing video clip of Elton John dressed as a peacock performing "Crocodile Rock" with the Muppets and I was sold.

My Moly in Colour


(Marker with coloured pencils)

And here's the finished article. On its way to Kerry by next week.

My Entry In Kerry's Moly

Well I'm done and should be mailing this one out to Melissa either today or tomorrow. It depends on when I can get out of my Jammies, I have been house-pj-bound with a virus.
And because I have been lying about...................I am half-way through Melissa's Moly too.
Shame one has to feel disgustingly ill to catch up on a passionate past time!!

Bad photography, though it was the best of fifteen shots! I should scan but I have the 'cantbebothereds'.
It does look better in person Kerry, True.

My Moly



Well, things have certainly slowed down here, haven't they? And I'm just as responsible as most of you. I confess that inspiration totally left me when I came to think up a way of continuing from a bear facing a mountain, but eventually I figured if I just drew a few lines, something would turn up.

And here it is, or at least here's the line work. Colour to follow as soon as I'm able.

And I have Melissa & Kerry's Here and keen to start...................

Melissa, Harry & Kerrie, Hello. Just a quick post to let you all know I am in Business and almost ready to post my Moly to Melissa. I have a new email address, will email you all  the new one today sometime.
Got to rush now.
:)  Clare.

This post seems to have disappeared from the blog......

....so here it is again.  More colourful characters in my own book.  Will be posting both books to Clare as soon as I can.

At long last........

.......my follow on entry for "things that go round" with huge apologies for the delay in posting this.  It was really difficult to find something to link in with Harry's wonderfully inventive and humerous entry and the theme for the moly.  Sorry it took me so long.  Hope you like it Melissa.

Chat Box Removed!

Hi All, I have removed the 'chatbox' from our blog. It was just filling up with spammy stuff. Come to think of it I should have perhaps looked at making it so only the four of us could post on it!!! Derrr! I will go back and check this out when I have more time.
Now, My Moly............ I am absolutely stumped.... don't have a clue as to what I will draw in it. I have lost the flow but I will persevere and hopefully my muse will return soon.

Round and round go the days and the seasons while the bus travels on............. 

Hope you like it Melissa.....next time I am going to try and be a lot more sketchy....I just keep worrying I am going to spoil someone's book! Both books will be in the post to Harry asap.

At long last......BUT....

I shall get to work on Melissa's book straight away!

No Moly

On 11 January, Kerry said, "The moly I have will be in the post by this weekend." Did you get held up, Kerry, or should I be worrying?
