Marion said...

Oh, I lOVE the blue dragon, but the meditating, levitating bears are a close second. Happy Friday to you, sweet Renee!!

Audrey said...

These images are, once again, fascinating. I love the "Bears on Air" and the flirty girl! The last one reminded me of the cancer scene - trying to slay the dragon!
Love to you!

I'm feeling the floating bears today. It's Friday and I want to float on out of here...float in the pool...float in a giant Margarita. Putting your parcel in the mail tomorrow, love. **blows kisses** Deborah

I can't pick a favorite...I love them all. It's always nice to escape to another world or two.

Happy Friday, Renee! I hope you have a good weekend. xox

Just stopped by to say a hello and wish you a great weekend. It's nice and cool right now, but this weekend is supposed to be hot as heck out this way. We'll just kick back and barbecue, spend time in the garden etc. Wish you well and take care.

The bears are doing yogi flying, no doubt, like the TM people who hop up from a full lotus position and call it flying.

The child with the dragon reminds me of the picture of myself as a infant with my dog (the one I just posted).

Daria said...

Great pictures ...

We are expecting a cool Victoria long weekend ... hope you get luckier.

Snowbrush said...

Renee, thanks for looking at it, the common theme being trusting fragility in the presence of great power. In the picture, I project ownership (I peed on him, for god's sakes!), without ever once fearing (or maybe even recognizing) that my life only continued by his indulgence. How often, I was told, did he bare his teeth at others, but showed only gentleness to me.

Meditating/levitating bears! I like it.

And I love that last one of the kid with the dragon. The dragon has a ratehr sweet epxpression on his face.

Loni Edwards said...

Hi Renee! Love the pictures. The bears made me feel at peace, the elves gave me a feeling of community, and the dragon one gave me inspiration. Thank you! :) Have a great weekend!

Marie S said...

I love all of the pictures, but the bears are wonderful. Great choice of pics Renee, as always.
Thank you!!!
Have a wonderful weekend,
Marie

Oh man, these are really cool finds. i like that dragon's benign expression. that's how i look after a good meal.

Meghann said...

Woo! Buddah bears and Elf parties. Trippy, man. I am SO there!

Manon Doyle said...

Fantastic images! They are all very cool!

Shelly said...

B is for bears that aren’t really bears at all – maybe a cross between a raccoon, yogi bear and a yogi levitator?
L is for the big lug with the amazing lamb chops and the fact that I love the detail in this picture.
D is for dragon and a boy who seems to have been decoupaged into that picture

Pattee said...

You always find the coolest paintings and prints of anyone I know. I miss your ramblings tho...

Have a good week-Renee...
Love~Pattee

Lola said...

Beautiful bear bonzes, babe!
The sleepy dragon and the elf-like girl scouts are cool too. You always manage to come up with the most original images, Renee.

And I love you for that too.

Ciao bella ragazza

Ces said...

I think what's terrific is the person who finds these artwork terrific!

Michelle said...

Love the dragon.

Bella Sinclair said...

Hahahaha! Levitating bears! What a great way to start the day. They look like they are all on a mission. An invasion?

L made me giddy. Such fantastic detail! It's nice to see young elves are the same as young humans. What is the elven equivalent of Dungeons & Dragons? Jails & Gangsters? dunno.

And the last image is so very sweet and peaceful. A very nice way to end a day of yumminess.

Happy Friday, Renee!

Diana Evans said...

Diana

kj said...

i'll take the levitating bears. i used to imagine i could float, that is, before i imagine i could fly, which was before i imagined i could change the world...

here's hoping you had a good day renee. mine's been filled with family, including my favorite niece of all time, my favorite daughter of all time, and my favorie #2 baby grandson of all time. love to you,

Chrisy said...

There's something about those bears isn't there...sitting there like monoliths echoing the mountains...so precious...

Ces said...

What!? You met MVICMW? What were you doing way waaaaay back there?

Woman in a Window said...

The bears and their impossible girth so peaceful and floating...me in my best of moments.

Draffin Bears said...

My favourite is the bear.

Have a great weekend
Hugs
Carolyn
