I do appreciate your patience with me...I will be getting to your portrait soon I promise.

*chuckles* As an old horse training friend and mentor of mine once told me-Long Live old Cliffy:horsey: :salute: -

"Sammy my lass, you're patient with all but yourself.":grin:

Guess that's truer than I thought.:roll: Darn you and your perceptiveness old man:lol:

Not to fear Dragongirl....your up next if I remember correctly, and then you will hopefully only have to practice patience for a short amount of time. LOL !!!

NOTICE TO ALL WAITING FOR A PORTRAIT !!!


If you haven't sent your information to me yet in the PM, with a decent close up photo, by the time I get to your name. I will be forced to bump you to the bottom of the list( OH NO). I have been working on the portraits every day again, and will hopefully catch up with all of them in the coming weeks. So if you are still wanting a portrait, you need to PM the info to me VERY soon...PLEASE !!!

I am almost to my half way goal of weight loss--should be their by Jan 2007. Then I will send you a picture---I haven't had a picture taken in years so they are of when I was quite chunky. So you can drop me to the bottom of the list. I won't mind. WHAT I do mind is going to the new gym in town 3 times a week--my idea of a work out is reading a good book on the couch! You know turning the pages.:notme:

Cheryl Oct 24 2006 08:47 AM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
Bisbe -- you do realize that Maelin is quite capable of taking off all the pounds you wish in the portrait? That's the joy of art, she's better than a plastic surgeon at fixing/altering whatever you wish!

P'ter Oct 24 2006 02:34 PM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
And all without any stitches! :lol:

Cheryl Oct 24 2006 02:45 PM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
Or the pricetag!

Lady Maelin Oct 24 2006 08:26 PM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
Bisbe, I will do whatever you wish, but like Cheryl said I can do wonders with my trusty pencil.... and only you and me to know for sure, I promise everyone I do that only I will see the photos they and you send me...ever !!! Just let me know what you want me to do, and I will try my best. Maelin

Anareth Oct 24 2006 11:29 PM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
NP, Lady Maelin--it's not like there was anything I needed to say about the picture privately!

Bisbe-if you think I'm as slim or long-waisted as Maelin's portrait makes out, you're imagining things! (To be fair, the picture she worked from wasn't taken in a way that shows how short-waisted I really am.) She works wonders with those pencils!

granath Oct 25 2006 12:42 AM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
Ditto here. She must've shaved about 20 kilos/45 pounds off my weight as well. :roll: I wish it were that easy in real life!

Dragongirl Oct 25 2006 04:49 AM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
:D You can do that 'Lin? Oh darn I would've asked you to give me a more heart shaped face:grin: More to my character!

Lady Maelin Oct 25 2006 05:13 PM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
Dragongirl,...To late now..:roll: ..I'm all done with yours. ;) You will just have to wait and see what I did for you until right before I put it up.:shhh: :bouncy:

Lady Maelin Oct 25 2006 05:19 PM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
@ Anareth...I normally don't show more that the shoulders, but in your case I had to show more to show all the goodies. Enjoy the extra length to your waist...I did it to my own too.:D

@ Granath...It didn't notice that I needed to do that to yours, but I am glad that you were so happy with it.:bouncy:

Dragongirl Oct 26 2006 05:41 AM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
@ Kat, I got your message :good: and have put you on the list. Thank you for the photos they should do:D nicely. I'm sorry to say that the parrot won't be included in your portrait, she is very cute though and I can quess that you are glad to keep her in crackers.:bouncy: :lol: :bouncy:

kc Oct 26 2006 01:46 PM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
I haven't forgotten but I need to get someone to take a photo of me - I'm usually t'other side of the camera :roll: I also need to think up a "persona" etc.

I'm in no rush so you can take me out of my turn if needed :D

@ Bisbe, I am so sorry that I forgot to tell you... HOW Wonderful it is that you are tying so hard to loose weight. More power to you, and I will be here when ever you get to where you want to be.:good: ;) :good:

@ kc, I have the best picture of you :bouncy: that I took at the dinner we all went to, one with one of those Dragon creatures we all played with on your shoulder. It is just a perfectly lovely photo,:good: and the pose if just right for you and your Firelizard. I will see if I can get it to you in a few days for you to decide if you want me to use it.:nod:
