Abat-Jour ~ Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow ~ Paint Party Friday week #51

Saying good-bye to a dear departed pet, sorting out a few differences and enjoying a little bit of nostalgic cinema together.


We said goodbye to Lupe ...mom's loyal companion....Lupe December 19th/ 2001 ~ February 27th/2012...11 years young .


Waiting for a call to hear when Lupe will be returning back home.


Thinking mom will find it hard returning to her home without Lupe there.
Lupe will no more be waiting for her return by the side light of the door.....

Since Lupe's passing my mom has stayed with us and needless to say I haven't had much time for my art but I did get a little down time to do a little sketching for Paint Party Friday Last night, M set us up in my bedroom with my computer and Netflix and we got to watch

a funny Italian Oldie...."Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow". Of course that famous strip tease scene never fails to make us laugh .

And while searching for photos I discovered this gorgeous image of Sophia with a little pooch  who looks quite a bit like our dear Lupe.

Listening to the background music and lyrics , it gave me inspiration. I sketched this image of a gothic window ~ church window with webs and a spider and floating helicopter seeds. The sunlight breaking through the darkness; with Lupe's passing thou but sad, his spirit rises in the sun's warm light. The seeds representing rebirth are on their journey from one plane to the next.....seeing the Luce Blu : )

So this is it for this week's Paint Party Friday Week #51...Please drop in on the other participating artists.

Until next time.....

Hi Annabelle...what a post!!! I so feel for your Mum when she returns home and Lupe won't be there to greet her...hopefully she can find another little pup for her companion...i'm loving the music here...might have to come back a few times ha ha!!! Hope all is well with you...I have my little vase sitting on the bay window in the kitchen...and I love it!!! Thanks again so much for that...it was so very very kind of you to think of me like that...Dzintra xoxo

Annabelle said...

Thanks Dzintra.
I think Lupe will be her last pooch; she's thinking of moving into a place where no animals are allowed but she might find it hard to do. Time will tell.
Glad you like the music.Hope all is well in your part of the world...far from the flooding? Take care and will drop in for a visit soon.

I believe Lupe's soul is still at home with your mom. The spirit is there. It is so sad to lose a family pet member. I've lost 3. We have Chippy Girl right now who is 12 years old and getting on in age and then there's Chocolatte' who will be 5 years in November. The thought of losing them really kills me. My condolences to your mom. Just remind her that Lupe's spirit lingers with her. Great job on the sketches. Take care.

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea

The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
