We Starve for our Art

Micah:  Well, this is sure a long-awaited post.  Just as we were about to prepare it yesterday, our internet went out.

Rusty:  And stayed out.  We gave up at midnight, but it's finally back and breakfast is delayed until we finish.

Cameron:  Oops.  I'm sorry.  That was my stomach rumbling.  It's empty.  I'll just pop in the kitchen and grab a quick nibble.

Merci:  No, you won't!  If we starve for our art, we all starve together.  So sit back down and help.

Marcus:  It's my turn to be the star of the post.  This was me as a real little guy.  This photo is for Sepia Saturday.

Sam:  And you're wearing your favorite color, Marcus.  You're in "dirt."

Marcus:  Yes, I love dirt.   It's the best color there is.  It's so pretty I can almost taste the real thing. 

Cyndi:  This is the original photo. Anything with Marcus in it starts out looking pretty much like dirt.  I think it's because he rolls in it.

Cyndi:  To brighten it up a little, Jan tried something on it called "Orton-ish" in Picasa.  I'm not sure what that means, but it looks like Marcus has been rolling in Georgia red clay.  Maybe he was.  We have a yard full of it.

Buddy:  This looks familiar.  Oh, yes, it's about the color the carpet was this winter with all the mud we tracked in.  Jan added a frame for our Caturday Art picture.

Cameron:  Now can I go eat?  It's already lunch time and I'm about to pass out!

Buddy:  Not yet.  We have to finish up here.  Percy, roll the credits.

Percy:  What?  Oh, you mean to sign off?  Here goes.

  2. OMD you are SOOOOOO right.... DIRT is a MARVELOUS COLOR. We do NOT know why the Crayola Company doesn't offer it in the 64 count boxes. THEY SHOULD.

    Let's hear it fur D I R T .

    it would make ANY Art... more ARTFUL Esp. if you had a CARTful.

  3. Marcus you were so good waiting for Jan to find the right colour for your fur and lo and behold she's framed your picture - we hope it will be hung on the wall.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. Marcus you were an adorable puppy, dirt & all! We understand starving around here too. If I am ten minutes late with breakfast, Bentley begins his love attack on me. I can't get anything done until he is fed. Obviously, dogs can starve in ten minutes or less!

  5. Here is what Picasa meant by Orton-ish: Several digital photo art programs try to replicate what he does. It's really pretty cool!

  6. Our whole house is decorated in the color of dirt.

  14. Hehehe... My sister Constance loves wearin' the dirt look too. Why, just the other day, peeps could hardly find any white on her white legs. She's supposed to be calico with a lot of white but most of her white was missin' 'cause of the dirt. MOUSES!
