Bena - Living things


Cows are curious like cats, but dumb like sheep.


Now, I remember the name of the cat was "Coco" (as in Chanelle) and it was some sort of a short-haired Brit. But the two dogs, Beagles I think, had names starting with S. They were gorgeously friendly. As was the cat, BTW. I prefer cats. Nothing to do with individual dogs. I just think my personality gets on a plane quicker with a cat.


To get information on this little device, I tried googling "snake vibrator" and you can just imagine the links that I was presented with! Eventually, I found the one that I needed by googling "getting rid of snakes". A brilliant device!!


Must be on a sexual plane this evening, as two of these images are reminiscent of certain parts of the female anatory.

And I conclude, with this gorgeous shed full of round hay bales. When I was a kid, we only had rectangula hay bales. I reckon the taste of hay in a round bale must be much more delicious!

The top shot is pure magic. As for your commentary, that also gave me a good giggle.

There is a richness in the colour and detail of all of these Bena shots, they are all exquisite ... an up close and personal experience of rural life ... something I rarely get because I am usually on the outside of the fence.

Snake vibrator - the mind boggles.

Looks like a British Blue - beautiful cats.

That top photo reminds me of a print that was on the wall at school, very well known, of cows in a field in I think early morning light. I've always loved it, and your version is lovely as well.

Ann, possibly "Spring Frost" by Elioth Gruner.

Martina, I wondered who would run the bovine defence.

The mentally challenged party in the first picture reminded me of an Innes painting.

Julie said...

Karin, I had not heard of George Innes prior to this. I can see the passing similarity is one of style rather than technique. The same could be said with Constable, but it is purely to do with the angle of the light. For mine, I wish I could have recified the blowout in the top left.

Still, the shape and smell of the cow's head is delicious. Next time I will be patient and capture the foggy breath.

These are just amazing. Your artwork reminds me of my Sister's. Which is a HUGE compliment.

You see the world in a fascinatingly different way.

Julie said...

Friends & Passers By, I thank you for your visit and for your kind words. I am learning to see the essence of what is in front of me. Thank may be line and shape within a bale of hay.
