    Happy Birthday, Alexander!

    Thanks for sharing the Queen tunes... I remember rocking out to both songs at high school football games. Now I should have my girls add the songs to their girl band repertoire.

    Happy New Year, too...


  • Jane Turley 30.12.08

    It's such a shame Freddie didn't live longer to awe us with even more of his talent. What a perfomer!

  • Speedcat Hollydale 30.12.08

    Happy Birthday ??

    Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!

    The portrait is taking on more personality now, and I understand why I saw it in a different light before.
    Your finished works always project emotion.

    I did not do a music Monday - been traveling, and just hopped on the computer. Actually, after working all weekend I forgot it was Monday! Ohhh dear, where am I? ((smile))

    Kim, are you changing URL's too?

    ... and I am hungry

    (thinking out loud again)

  • Unknown 30.12.08

    Aww.. songs I relate to! I feel that I grew up on Queen, and no one can sing them like Freddie.

  • Rozella 30.12.08

  • Mariuca 31.12.08

    Ohhhh he he, I can see why u said ur selection is the total opp of mine this week! ;)

  • Mariuca 31.12.08

    Did u manage to get the Mezzoforte CD? :)

  • Unknown 31.12.08

    Kim, I still remember exactly where I was when I heard that Freddie died - sitting in traffic, trying to merge from the north end onto the Second Narrows Bridge in Vancouver (anyone who lived there at the time knows how long that process takes). Some things just stick with you don't they?

    I have to tell you how much I'm loving this portrait. I especially like the funky urban clothing - it gives this portrait such a wonderful modern feel to it, which blends so well with your particular style of painting.

    Happy New Year!

  • Lilly 31.12.08

    Happy Brithday alexander. And I love your WIP - another wonderful piece. You are so clever and talented Kim. Freddy Mercury - what a showman who left us all too soon. Thanks for the music!! Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.

    Happy Birthday Alexander! Are you opening a new gallery for Alexander and Kelly's portrait of life? :)

    Are you the secret agent, Busy Bear?

    My Beaver has been busy this holiday season in the frozen tundra of another Winter's Ice Age. Our 10th Grandchild, Robert “Bobby” was born three weeks premature on Dec 20, 2008… and, Bobby has been in and out of the hospital since he was born... currently, he is back in ICU.

    Miss Moneypenny and Debbie Dolphin wish you and your family a Healthy Wealthy Happy New Year! :)
