Acrylic, Kermit the Hermit.

This is just a small acrylic one I had some fun with a couple of months ago. I loved the expression on his face and his “kinda” hammock.

Have popped this on mainly to welcome blissbait back, and to say thank you for a couple of awards I was given to me, which I have to pick up from you.

I haven’t been blogging or painting much at all. Been having some problems here with a couple of people living very close by.  I have actually taken to sleeping outside as its been a lot healthier than being inside.  How ridiculous hey. I sat out the back with my dog the other night and wasn’t long after going out there saw a squirt of fluid go across the back yard, within about 10 minutes we had to move from there, my dog was sneezing and choking, I saw another one go straight past there also before moving, towards the neighbours air vents in his walls. It appears they have a high pressure squirt gun. You can smell the pesticides in it.

I haven’t been able to catch up with him to let him know. He’s at work all day and normally if you don’t catch him coming in the driveway, can’t get an answer to the door at night. Has a hearing problem I believe. These demented little imbeciles also have lasers and a projectorless taser they have been shooting around.  I have been hit in the eye and head a few times and so has my dog. I have contacted the local member of parliament.  Its illegal in Australia to own these.  So they make their own of the web. Thats a laser on my dog, they keep getting him in the eyes, he hardly goes out the back any more he even started to hide behind the bin out there.  Now when he goes out he comes in sneezing and choking, they’ve obviously got him in the face with the squirt gun.

Anyway enough of that just thought would explain why I haven’t been on or picked the awards up. Thank you.


  1. It’s great to see some new art from you. I been checking and waiting.
    How old are these punks that are doing this to you? These laser are really dangerous and if they’re are like the ones in the U.S. they can cause instant permanent damage to the eyes. There was a case just recently, where a pilot almost crashed landing because of a punk kid hitting the pilots eyes with a laser from the ground. I hope all gets better for you soon, and calm and beautiful artwork replaces the aggravation.

    • Oh I miss my painting so much, I really do. They’re in their twenties, old enough to know better. I’m in my 60’s, and by myself, I know they think I’m fair game for their fun.

  2. I love the little frog. So sorry to hear about your neighbor troubles. I know from experience that they can really drag the spirits down. I’m rooting for you! 🙂

  3. Love the frog.
    I’m really concerned as to why the police would not be all over this situation with you, especially when you know who they are.

    • The frog was just one I did one day when I really felt like something happy to paint and he came to mind. I download different photos from the net and keep them as reference as I don’t get out a lot, so gives me different things to choose from. Would be great to be a gypsy and travel around different places and paint.

    • I’m also going to have a talk with the land agents, and see what we can come up with over this, they may have somewhere else suitable.

    • Hi Blissbait, thank you, no these are paintings I’ve already done before. Haven’t picked a palette knife up in a while now, or a paint brush. Its so good to see you back again.
