Bears & cannabis... Moonlight & stars.
I had so much fun painting the last mermaid, I wanted to do another! I’m studying the human body, I hope to be painting some life study nudes in the near future.
More serious painting ahead, but my daily sketching continues, why not have a bit of imagined underwater fun.
I’ve have come to realize, I like painting above the water more.. furry creatures are calling.
There is another talented artist on Instagram who we have admired each others work for awhile, I’ll let her continue with mermaids!
Hiroko Reaney, already has her own style happening- I love when I notice an artist- who has achieved their own… Groove? Flair? Vibe? Style. We should be supporting each other any and every way we can. Each work of art educates & hopefully inspires.
Check her out on Instagram. Funny, I asked her if she wanted the last mermaid, why not.. and she said she would love it!
She was too nervous to ask if I wanted to barter..
How neat. We are bartering.
Have a creative day!
This week.. less text, (more contemplating) more art.
I’ve been busy.
I like Big Buds & I cannot lie!
Sure all bud is good bud- but to see the beauty in an actual BIG bud...
Although dry, the tiny crystals still catch my eye.
Time to break up this big bud & put it in my big bong & have a BIG toke to get his BIG day started. Just like some take pills and wait for them to "kick in", I have a puff & wait a FEW seconds then I'm ready to stretch, feed the Blue jays, dogs and get some chores done!
Then I'll need another one.
I like Big buds & can not lie!!
* Yesterday, I read a news story first thing and started to sob, it had me question my faith in humanity. I blogged a very short sentence.. 'some people fucking suck.' & yes, I still believe - some just do. Today again, shitty people doing terrible things to each other, strangers, friends, family all hurting each other. I know.
What the fuck is wrong with us humans?
I deleted it.
I apologize for my momentary lack in faith.
HAVE NO FEAR!
Have a terrific day! Weekend... Month - Year!
You want to talk cannabis Superstar - it's no other than Micael Phelps.
Swimming rockstar! What a set of lungs he must have!!
Remember all the flack Michael Phelps received about his infamous ‘Bong smoking photo’. What do you say about it now?
He is a swimming superstar and gold medal winner.
The most Gold medals a single human has ever won.
I wonder how he would do if he was ‘hitting the bottle’ instead of the bong.
It’s not my business how he relaxes, what he does in his own time, anytime - it’s not our business. I think he’s set a better than superb athlete example for young ones to be inspired. Anyone to be inspired - clearly, I am inspired when I painted his tribute bud.
‘Bud Splash Phelps’
Judge people on what they do, not for smoking cannabis,
the sneaky person who took the photo and posted/shared it without his consent,
judge them before you judge someone for having puff.
Personally, looking back I'm glad they took the photo... look who's laughing now.
Well done Michael.
There is a Michael Phelps Foundation - I’m not shocked.
Making a difference in a POSITIVE way.
Swimmer Michael Phelps.
http://michaelphelpsfoundation.org helping already.
It's Monday and I have a desk with drawings waiting to be completed! Bring it on! Several new ‘Bud’s’, a few single panel cartoons and a couple of strips!
I warmed up with this little Mermaid today, thought I'd have a giggle to start the week & I will be giving her away to someone on Instagram by the end of the day. To whom I’m not sure.. I think someone who ‘comments’ - at least that way I know she will be going to a home that already appreciates her!
Apparently, I need to work on 'my boobs'... she is not fake! lol
I'm taking some life drawing lessons (on line, of course) it's interesting, not like the real thing- but it will do. I'm rusty. I’ve been admiring my boy Boulets life drawings, check him out on IG if you have not done so yet. Our e mail this a.m., was about someone saying “the journey is 1/2 the fun..” then we both wanted to know what fucking liar came up with that quote.. lol
I can draw a bear & fox completely from imagination - but it's been a while since I've looked at boobs other than my own... and no - they won't do for my mermaids. lol So, I’m on PIN started a ‘Human’ board- because I couldn't remember the words “Life Drawing” lol..
I will practice & I will get better.
What will you practice getting better at today?
Cause every little thing is gonna be alright…
Bud Marley! Hee hee hee!! BOB Markey Bud! I love him! Bob Marley is one of our most loved educator of cannabis.
Mine still, not a week goes by without some Bob Marley to brighten my day.
Above all - he educated us about LOVE.
I am thankful he graced the earth for a while.
Check out the official Bob Marly page on Instagram!
Guess who is next!?
I cant stop! I painted 3 new BUDs yesterday & have 6 waiting!!!
What fun! - Do what you love.
Education is the key and anyway you can get attention- well- I would get attention if I took my cloths off and posed with bud and a bong- lol! But- I’ll stick to my painting. It’s much warmer for one.
Have a creative weekend!! Me - I have painting planned, dreams to be focused into realities & then some!
Hee Hee! When I illuminated little minds, they wanted me to draw Sponge Bob over and over, lol
Today was the most fun I’ve had with Sponge Bob yet! Yes, I am - as an animator- a fan of Sponge Bob. Never mind the remarks they make - it’s vibrant, colorful, stimulating, simple and fun!
I get it. Children are compassionate & a SPONGE themselves - please educate them when they are young- about all pants! Primarily with Mushrooms! They will make better choices later in life if they have the knowledge.
Side Note.. check out my Instagram.www.instagram.com/georgia.toons/ My FB account ‘Georgia Toons’ is soon closing. I also will keep this page up to date. :) with a little more.
I’m back to ‘Mars Attacks’, entertaining movie, the cast is phenomenal, -20 years this year, Wow. Tim Burton is beyond talented, a gift imo. The next ‘bud’ has me giggling…
beauty & buds are everywhere if you keep looking.
You can see a short clip on my IG account of my Alien - back to painting!
Less social media- more time Painting.
I AM inspired by Bud Ross. Bob Ross.
If you can’t paint after watching this man, countless times- all available online for free - as I did while painting this bud, Isn’t he a talented little Bud? A Budding Artist you might say!! lol
You can see how he holds the pallet like a Pro, not to mention the tiny happy tree on the tiny canvas.
You can also watch on Netflix - where I squeeze in the occasional episode - usually alone, break time- but still want to keep inspired- Bob is the man. His voice is as calming as his brush strokes, except when ‘it gets a beating! “Beat the devil out of it!”
Unquestionably, he makes me a better painter after every episode!
I watch him make a simple path- with a twist of his brush, perhaps “A happy accident…” - it become a trail deer might trod on. Bob helps us escape as well as paint. Helps us relax.
No wonder the man is a success.
How superb he share his gift with he rest of us.
Today, with this little Bud, I hoped to make a few smile above all
I wanted to celebrate life, beauty, inspiring people & God.
Mission accomplished. “Bud Ross.”
“We don't make mistakes. We just have happy accidents.”

How Low can they Go? I don’t know… pretty low.
Changing the rules & laws to suit what ever works best for an already established corrupt Administration. Rise Up. WE Stay High.
Cannabis is here to stay.
Getting angry only gets people thrown in jail and gives the “Authority’ reason to shoot your dogs, as any dog lover knows - any loving dog will defend their master & sense the threat - so, many good dogs are going to die I’m afraid in the future, in the USA.
A Good time for people to think about investing in the dog bite prevention kits, with my illustrations & puppy training - help prevent any event from harming a family member.
When they Go Low - STAY HIGH. I don’t mean - sofa surfing the latest celebrity gossip on T.V. high. Educate! Yourself or someone on any topic that you are passionate about. Hopefully, one will be Cannabis awareness. If Cannabis helps you feel better, stay HIGH but stay active, creative and inspired. Terrible news all the time can tear down the soul, throw in daily aches and pains, mental & physical, next you’re exhausted and not even enjoying all that you work so hard to accomplish.
Stay Hi - when it helps you past the PTSD.
Stay HIGH when dealing with chronic pain & even when dealing with a broken heart.. as many do starting the new year - it’s not healthy - so get HIGH, in 2016 you had a good cry - NOW get busy. Heal thyself.
Chase your dreams not people, those who are meant to be in our lives will be.
I took steps to become better in 2016 was somewhat successful, when I sit, meditate, think positive thoughts about pleasant experiences & people - I had a smile on my face and everything seemed better… slowly. I felt better, looked better and twitched less. Fact.
It was work, I kid you not. lol I plan on working at it more this year.
I know what I need to focus on in 2017, more painting. How about you?
2017! I’t’s days away from a new year!
2016 was I believe a good year for Cannabis - As in ending the insanity and sending less humans to prison/court for it! More states in the USA became legal, recreational (i think they like to call it ‘Adult’) and more medical, more lives helped. Advances are being made, although the DEA still wants some way to convict and control. I think this will always be the case, and IF you are doing something you should not- then you have to prepare for the possibility of still being prosecuted and going to jail.
What can I say? I don't agree with the ‘drug war’ at all, anymore. I am just stating what I see & read happening. We all understand BIG pharma will also want a piece of the Cannapie, still less will be in jail because of cannabis! Fewer minor possession charges, and in Canada- wow- legalization in 2017 - fewer lives ruined for possession & growing. Everyone eventually able to grow 4 plants- I hope they do, it is such a beautiful plant!
You then will also see fresh cannabis appearing at the super market- for those that wish to juice and add some peppery bud to a fresh salad! It will be all the rage! Nom Nom Nom! The times are changing. Thank God
Fellow Canadians, please let us not forget how terrible it was under Stephen Harper, the constant harassment, serious insults and more. Patients never knowing which way to go- PRIVATE classified information being given out for everyone to see & note. THREATENING Canadians (patients, many very sick & terminally ill) to destroy OUR medicine in with ‘kitty litter’ - or we would be persecuted - raided by the police- shoot our dogs? YES, a reality for some.
I felt an incredible weight lifted off my heart when Justing became prime Minister. Breath.
It takes time, he said he would. He will. A new era has arrived in Canada - a healthier one IMO.
2016 brought positive change for cannabis but some countries are still struggling.
We can not make them change their minds but we can educate by example.
Less Alcohol, lower addiction rates for tobacco as well- If you believe what you read. Research it. People are puffing more bud, with far less harmful results- as for brain damage- long term- careful- if that were the case we would see it amongst all those that did ‘inhale- back in the day, and pretty much calling the shots NOW.
& More revenue going to go to our schools, hospitals and cities & towns etc. because of CANNABIS. I seriously hope the Indian reserves in Canada are researching growing as well.
I just bought a tube of ‘Brilliant green’ gouache, for more Brilliant Bud painting!
Now, it’s a few days of painting & praying for me.. no social media.
What do you want in 2017? I hope you get all you desire.
So - SMILE as we get set to burn the last bud of 2016 & turn over he new leaf of 2017!
Fill your bowl and hold up your BONG with a cheer!
2017 is going to be a BETTER YEAR!!
