Art Challenge

Is anyone else watching The Great Art Challenge on Sunday evenings?  Is it just me that is getting really cross about who leaves the show at the end of each episode?  Right at the beginning of each show, one of the judges says "my husband calls me Miss Blunt".  I think he needs to change that to "Miss Downright Rude".  Some of the comments she made in the last show were quite nasty.  Yes, I know she is a professional artist but I have been looking at her work and, sorry love, but it ain't all that! 

Art is strange, so subjective, what appeals to one person does not appeal to the next, so it is really difficult to judge, however ...... one of the two ladies asked to leave was so much stronger than one of the ladies who has been left in.   In previous weeks, people have left who I felt were better than this one particular lady who seems to survive, no matter what.  She was criticized this week for poor perspective,  poor drawing skills and poor colour choices, yet she is still in the competition.  Beggars belief.

And breathe.

Anyhoo, here is a little something that I knocked up at the weekend and it is back to my default CAS mode:

So, this is Bunch of Balloons from Wild Rose Studio
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment is Clearly Besotted
Matting layer is First Edition - think it is Desert Blooms

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

PS.  Can someone please teach my beloved that there is an enormous and important difference between lowercase and uppercase - especially when he writes his desktop password in the wrong one.  I feel that when it comes to computers at the moment, I may be a Squirrel on the edge!

This is gorgeous Squirrel, such a sweet image and wonderful colouring.
I totally agree with your regarding the Great Art Challenge on TV and think the judging is far too harsh.
Hugs Sue xx

A gorgeous card, love the sweet image and soft colours.

Hubby and I watch it and we both totally agree with you!! That woman should have gone 2 weeks ago. I definitely think they let the wrong woman go this week. And as for that judge....ooooh!

Since your 'default CAS' is downright gorgeous I think we'll let you get away with it!

This is one cute image and some fabulous painting :-) I don't watch the Great Art Challenge and from the sounds of it, it would just angry me up anyway!

Oh, and come away from that edge Squirrel...we don't want any accidents!

Big hugs, Kat xx

I don't even bother reading other people's book and movie reviews anymore as their reviews drive me round the bend and sometimes send me on a very long rant. I decided I'm better off just doing my own thing instead of listening to a lot of cotton-headed ninny-muggins. Unless, of course, those ninny muggins happen to be praising a certain squirrel's colouring skills; then I'm all in agreement! ;) LOL.
