A bearded man and camomile tea

Still two  days for our MASCULINE/ FEMININE theme  over at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY - you can watch all the fabulous entries that were linked at one glance HERE.


Zwei Tage noch für unser Maskulin/Feminin Thema bei Art Journal Journey. Du kannst alle Beiträge HIER auf einen Blick sehen.

I painted a bearded man in acrylics. Ich hab einen Mann mit Bart in Acryl gemalt.
***

 and for some drink-related action here -since it is time for
TSFT again in a few hours,
 I offered camomile tea to Mr. Beard
Ich hab ihm Kamillentee angeboten.


He didn't want it!/Er wollte keinen!

I offered it to Mr. Dog. Ich hab es Herrn Hund angeboten.


NO!!! NEIN!

So--no other chance as to drink it on my own!
Blieb mir nur übrig es selbst zu trinken!

  10. Ha ha you always make me smile Susi! Your painting is fab, I love how you're so free with the brush. Wonder if your dogs would have turned down a hot chocolate drink though?!

  12. Ha-ha. Silly dog not wanting the tea. Love your painting today. It is a very strong face. You used the colors to create some very strong details and emotion.

  13. Der Mann ist echt klasse geworden, nun
    hast Du einen in Reserve ;)
    Ich liebe Kamillentee, kann gar nicht verstehen,
    warum Herr Hund so ein Bäh-Gesicht macht :))

    Wünsche Dir eine schöne sonnige Woche!
    Liebe Grüße

  14. What a gorgeous painting!Love his eyes!I guess my dogs won't like tea either. Lovely dog you have!

    ReplyDelete
  15. he turned out wonderful!
    love all the texture you created.
    you have inspired me to make a cup of chamomile tea.

  16. That's a fantastic painting. I laughed when you offered it to your bearded man and your dog. I don't like chamomile, so I can see why the dogs wouldn't either. Smart dog!!

    Not sure if you knew, but if you are not a member of Pinterest, you can't see much. You have to be logged in to see most of the entries, which I don't think is fair, especially if my work is part of the group. Sort of like keeping me out of the museum unless I pay, even though my work is being shown.

    Thanks, though, for the link and for sharing your gorgeous bearded man and your tea with us for T this Tuesday. I adored seeing your face, too.

  17. That´s a luminous portrait! It´s been over 20 years since I played with acrylics, might have to again, soon. We were talking about tea yesterday, and I said to the husband that all my Austrian relatives used to drink Kamomille tea! lol Happy T-Day!

  18. Oh Susi - love the chamomile tea 'story', and your bearded man looks most convincing.

  20. Oh Susi, of course you may pin my images. I'm not upset with you, but with Pinterest and their stiff requirements of join or you can't look.

  23. You are a very talented painter! Too bad there were no takers on the tea...I'll share a cup with you anytme!

  24. Love your bearded man ♥♥♥ He looks to be more of a beer or even whisky drinker than tea :) Doesn't know what he's missing and neither does the dog. At least you got to enjoy the tea!

  28. Ha ha-love how you attempted to share your tea! I so agree with Patty as I thought of Jesus too when I first saw your fabulous painting! I tried to get another painting in but just didn't get it finished. Happy T day, and am looking forward to July's new theme:)

  39. What a magnificent portrait, Susi - I think your bearded man may be one of your best faces yet. I'm sorry to hear he doesn't like camomile tea though.
