Hello Nealey, Karen and Curtis.......
Three different media and each well done.

Thank you so much Bonnie & Geri & Sarah for commenting on my drawing. It is much appreciated!
Curtis ! I think your painting fits in with this month's challenge, if that is what you are referring to. Your "Country Road" has a nice autumn feel to it - good colors.
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Nealey: Love the NA, looks like you enjoyed doing this as much as I did, great job.
Jen: your little clay bear is adorable, cant wait to see him fired up and and ready to growl....
Karen: UP UP and AWAY.... how cute is this,
Curtis: so glad to see you back. as always your pastoral scenes are full of life and color. Great job. I can smell the air and hear nature on my walk.
Geri: where is your avatar, is it a ghostly one? so you are read to get fired up.... hmmmm the expectations....
Sarah: so interesting to hear about your backyard kiln.... I think here in the desert, I would just have to wait until summer and set it out side.... tee hee.

C & C Always Welcome
Sorry, It is still alot going on and I don't have much time to post anything. Hard to catch up with all the wonderful paintings you guys are posting.
Just one thing! Sarah, could you show and tell us more about your kiln in Chatter?
Hope to spend some more time here soon!
C&C always welcome
Karen, I love the balloon bears. just the sort of thing Fred's bears would do!
Curtis, What a nice winding path and delicate trees. Lovely.
Thanks everyone on the nice comments on my bears. Sarah no he need shaving inside but he does have holes throughout in his legs, head, nose and his tummy is a big hole. I still have a ways to go. My friend has an electric kiln she fires our stuff in. She has also put together a kiln and done something similar to what you describe and she used horse dung as well. It turns the colours dark. The native Americans used fire pits to fire their pots and used Buffalo chips. Yes I am using red clay.
Yes I am saying he is a cub!
Jen C & C's always welcome
wetpaperfan:where is your avatar, is it a ghostly one?
I don't know what happened to it. I did have a blank look on my face. Everything should be abnormal again.
C and C always welcomed
Nealy,Bonnie, Sarah, Marsha, and Jen thank you for the comments. Curtis beautiful landscape.
C&Cs always welcome
thanks for the comments on my path everyone. im keeping up with the chatter though i dont comment often. computer has a imind of its own.
Curtis, you are one of my favorite artists. This is a beautiful pastel of a country road. Your work always reminds me of something painted 150 years ago - lovely technique and colors ...
Karen, this is such a charming, exuberant WC pencil painting in honor of Fred's bears.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Marsha, thank you for comment on my NA drawing. I also thank Holly for the great photo collection this month. I hope I get time to experiment with one or two more of the photos!
Good evening to All, decided tonight to take a looks at this months challenge and try to get upto date with comments and than show my painting Sarah good job on your celebration firworks painting,
Marsha I think your bear is looking at Alex bear and saying to himself wow what a cutie. Good job with the bear Marsha. The native is also very good I think I should drink more coffee.
Alex your bear is sooooooooooo cute and well done. He brings happy thoughts to me.
All C & C's always welcome
Fred is Bruno checking out all the fall colours or just running away from all the bears that have shown up on this challenge. Good job as always with your bears.
Sarah the still life painting is good enough I am now thinking of food!
Bonnie your bear! GOOD JOB I like the colours and the background.
Nealey your native charocoal painting is beautiful.
Jen- your clay bear is cute, you are just so smart.
Karen- your bear is also well done.
