how did I miss this post!
I am not a pullet thank you very much! I might be bantam weight (I wish) but I'm not a pullet! Watch out or I'll behave like Big Bertha- ( Nick's Mum's hen that ate a shrew!) :evil:
there's space now P'ter! *sharpens her beak!* :D

I got a digital camera for Christmas--now I have to figure out how to work it. Actually it's hooking it up to the computer I have to figure out! Once I do I promise to send you a picture!
So far I have taken lots of pictures of my handsome German Shepherd Gus.

O.K. Lady M: I SUPPOSE I'd better ask you to add me in (or I won't hear the last of it) I'll send you the photo and details asap.


(actually [as an ex-art model] I'm secretly chuffed at getting in line for a proper portrait)

I also can't wait to see who P'ter wants to be!
All of your work is so beautiful, Lady Maelin. But I must say my favorite one is Pam's, seeing as how The Crystal Singer is my fav Anne work.

Where do I send the picture? I am going to try to get the hubby to take a few next weekend. We picked up a puppy mill Rat Terrier to rehabilitate before re homing him Saturday, 2 unwanted 5 yr old Rat Terriers and a 3month old Rattie girl on Sun. I'm planning on not doing a thing next weekend!

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
Bisbe, You can open a free Photobucked account, and send it over to me in the PM.That is how most all of the members get them to me. I will be looking forward to getting them...Can you make sure that the photos are close up and without any glasses(Pern doesn't have Glasses or at least not anywhere that I have read...not even poor ole Wansor)

Lady Maelin Jan 7 2007 07:36 PM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
Mary,:sorry: Sorry I forgot to add you to the last update list, but I have fixed it now...my appologies. I still need a photo of you though...PLEASE!!! Or else I will have to bump you... but at least you will still be on the list....:lol:

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
Naw!!! No druge for you yet Mister,:brow: not as long as you are patient. The waiting and pacing room is on the left...sit down put your feet up and make yourself comfy, it might be a while. Let me know if you get hungry :yum: I serve my guests :cookie: :cookie:and :tea: or :java: while they wait.:)

Lily Jan 9 2007 11:42 PM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
Actually, I think a drudge would be interesting - especially one from the Ruatha of Lessa's teen age years - or somewhere they were treated as the lowest of the low anyway. Imagine what Maelin could do with tangled hair and a dirty face and scruffy clothing!
Any volunteers????

PernesePhoenix Jan 10 2007 05:15 AM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
Tempting as that sounds, I think I shall stick with my original choice. Besides we would need a scowler to be a drudge, I am far to merry. lol. Now to wait patiently with some klah and chocolate chip cookies. It is a shame that chocolate couldn't grow in Pern soil. I wonder if the original settlers ever tried it before the stash ran out.

PernesePhoenix Jan 15 2007 03:18 AM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
I was just wondering, because I have so many better things to occupy my mind with, what other personas have yet to be created/bequested?

I remember someone saying dolphineer, tho I don't know if that was in another post or got deleted when the forum went Between times.

So other than dolphineers and drudges what other Pern personas could we challege the talented Maelin with?(other than those already done of course)

edith Jan 15 2007 07:39 AM

Re: Pern Portraits by resident artist Lady Maelin
 
hmmm... I wonder what we've had so far!

In the gallery- which is not up to date I counted

1: Journeywoman artist
1: Master Healer
4: Journeymen/women harpers
3: Weyrwomen
2: Master Archivists
1: Journeywoman Smith
1: Headwoman
2: Lady Holders
1: Journeywoman Starsmith
1: Crystal SInger
2: Green Riders
1: Weyrleader

and of course 1 firelizard and Maelin's picture of Anne!
