HH has her say.... and Is Thankful on Thursday for your help.

You know this blog is called HH and The Boys... Well, HH reminded us that we almost forgot the HH part  of it, and after all this time, she would like to have a little time to talk to you today.  We have reluctantly gladly given her permission to use OUR blog.....

WE love all of you and will miss you today... hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

Thanks boys.  HH here. The boys are right, I need to ask a favor of all of you. I'm gearing up for another 30 day painting challenge.  It starts on Sunday, September 1st and it's through Leslie Saeta's blog.  So far there are 229 artists signed up.  It includes artists of all kinds, so if you like art, you might want to stop by and click on a few. They'll start posting on September 1st.

Call for photos:  I would love to paint as many of you cats out there as I can. Here's what I need. Tell your staff person to send me....

1. Photos in jpg format of you (cats) up close.... it would be great if the picture would show the eye color really well... That is so important. If you want to send a couple of pictures so I can get a good feel, that would be fine.

2. Also, feel free to tell me something about the picture if you think it will help.

3. Please send them to me at Lou AT LouBelcher DOT com   I'll be able to sort them better there than in Max's email. Please put CAT PICTURE in the subject line.
 4. NOTE that if you participated last time, you can participate again.  Just send a different picture this time.
NOTE:  I want you to know that there is no sales pitch connected with this. When I finish each picture, I'll post it here and in my gallery and I'll send you a jpg of it so you can post it on your blog if you wish,

That's it. 

Thanks so much  in advance for helping me out.

hugs, HH

Here's the poster with the paintings from last time.

Toona Tuesday and a lesson

Knuckles washing the tuna
We learned yesterday that bad luck can sometimes be good luck. Yesterday, HH went to the studio as usual. At lunchtime, her car started but kept stalling..... yikes!!!

Short version. AAA  took the car to the dealer  and HH came home(that's the good part).

We're hoping she gets the car back today. It's fun to have her home, but she's not in such a great mood when the car doesn't work.

But she was in a good enough mood to leave us some tooooona , so come on over.

hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

HH is into Whimsy....

Hi everybuddy.  We haven't been around to blog or to comment lately cuz HH has been working really hard on this new group of paintings.  Oh she's still doing the portraits, but this is something extra special in the category of WHIMSY... 

She's calling these KittyScapes and we wanted to tell you about them.

This first one is called KittyScape1.  It started out as a cityscape, but when she posted the finished painting on Facebook, someone asked... "Where are the kitties?"

So, she put in the three kitties you see in it and it became the first in the series called, KittyScapes...

It's 12" by 16" by 1.5" and is gallery wrapped so it's ready to hang.

Next, she made one that is pure fantasy of a giant bird talking to a kitty.  This one is 8" by 10" by 1/2".

It's called "Got waffles?"  The name?  Sheila just got a new waffle maker and when she saw the painting, she said that she thought the bird was asking the kitty if he had any waffles.... thus, the name....

This third one was just finished this week.  It's KittyScape3: Gone Fishing.

It's the biggest of them all.... it's 24" by 24" by 1.5" .  There are six kitties in it and could have been hundreds more if we hadn't taken her brush away from her. 

Anyway, just wanted to show you what she's been up to  and to tell you why we've been so uncharacteristically silent.  We'll be around to comment now that she's back to a more normal schedule.

Have a great day, everybuddy.....

hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

It's Thankful Thursday and Flat Max is thankful for his rain slicker.  He was in Bethlehem, CT., and it was raining.  Here he is in a flower pot.  Having a great time despite the rain.

Happy Tooooona Tuesday...

Before we move on to Toooooona Tuesday, here's an update from Flat Max.  HH received this picture of him leaning against this beer menu in the Abington Ale House... Oh...oh... Something tells us he's having too much fun.

He'll be home at the end of the week, so we'll check in with him then.

For now, pressing matters... It's Tuesday and you know what that means.  Yes, you're right... you are all invited over for Tooooona..

HH has made her famous Toooona Subs.   Grab one on the way in and have a blast.

Have a great day.

hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

HH meets Sweet Pea and Beau

All I can say is that Bugsy and I wish we had been invited to meet Sweet Pea and Beau.  But we received a picture from their mom, Renee, this morning Aren't they cute.  Renee is an artist and HH and Sheila and Helen stopped by to meet the two newbies on their lunch hour. 

Aren't they just wonderful?  Welcome to the blogosphere little pups.  (They don't have their own blog yet, but we'll keep you posted if they decide to have one later... For now, I think Renee has her hands full just keeping up with them.)

Have a great weekend everbuddy.

hugs, Knuckles

Another week has started....

We woke up this morning and realized that it's another week... We are still excited about our new toys so we started right in playing with the fish.  Thanks to everyone who dropped by our birthday party last week.  We had fun and enjoyed all the comments.

We were sad to wake up to the news that Clifford from Friends Furever crossed the Rainbow Bridge unexpectedly yesterday.  Please stop by and give a little comfort to them over there....

Here's a really wonderful photo of Clifford.

Hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles....
