Tacky Tuesday -- Gandalf Big Naturals

The delightfully wacky 'n tacky
internet phenomenon known as
"Gandalf Big Naturals"
started with one crazy meme in 2022 --

It went viral and inspired even more 
goofy memes, cosplay and art, like these --

And now, Life imitates Art!

Sir Ian McKellen is currently
touring Britain in the drag
leading role of a panto
called Mother Goose . . . 

. . . and here he is in his dressing room
getting ready to go on stage!

Happy Spring Equinox!

Today is the Spring Equinox
in the northern hemisphere.

In pagan circles it is a day to honour
the Goddess of Spring known as
Ostara or Eostre (from whose name
the word "Easter" comes).

Her sacred animal
is the rabbit or hare.

And hey! 2023 is

May your joys multiply
like bunnies in Spring!

Let the Shenanigans Begin!

So Irish Heritage Day has rolled around once again,
and that means only one thing to
a mixed Irish descendant such as myself.

Fun, green beer, and mockery!

And Now, An Important Message From
Her Royal Highness the Cat:

"Don't forget that Saint Patrick is not the only saint
whose feast day is March 17. It is also the feast day of
Saint Gertrude of Nivelles,
the patron saint of cats and the people who love them."

Thursday Art Date With Rain -- "Grayscale"

Rain's art prompt today correlates to how I've done art for most of my life -- drawing in graphite pencil. Without art instruction or supplies when I was young, it's what was accessible and available to me back in those days. So I'm very familiar with searching out and trying to replicate the visual nuances of grayscale.

I still enjoy drawing in graphite and continue to find it a rewarding challenge. Here's some new drawings from a recent course I took called "Birds and Flowers in Graphite." My favourite is the hawk.
