A passion for art doesn’t always put chocolate on the table.
English artist Doron painted Fraz taking his first kayak trip down the river. You can read all the other things Fraz did over at Doron’s art blog.
Another suffering artist. Surely there is a market for wombat art?
Hey there, Loon!
There just no beating you here!
You’re right, I think Loon camps outside Wombieland so that she can slip into first place every Monday 🙂
We need to be quicker, or… I wonder if she likes wine gums and vanilla ice cream? 🙂 xxxx
I think it’s the free chocolate and wine gums for the first commenter that attracts Loon!
Maybe if we offer her some of those goodies she’ll sleep in so we can be first for a while.
I guess you’d have to offer Loon more goodies than she gets for being the first commenter. I think we’re going to have a Loon bidding war!
We can bid all we want, but the bottom line she is up in the morning before the rest of us. :)…
Still, I’ll leave here this super sized chocolate milkshake for her! 🙂
Being in Australia does have its advantages. And wild wombats, too. Lucky Loon!
Lucky prize winning Loon too 🙂
I hope she doesn’t try to collect all her prizes, though.
She might not have seen it 🙂
I hope not too! All the chocolate trophies that don’t get picked up, I get to eat!
Now that is definitely a bonus 🙂 I could always help you out if you get too full 🙂
You can help me, but you have to get here early because I eat them for breakfast!
If there is a market, it must be hiding.
Twink, I think your art is priceless!
Coming from a great artist like you, that means a lot. But I don’t think too many agree.
The ones that don’t agree don’t have an eye for great art! 🙂
And the ones who do have an eye for art don’t have any money!
Now that I agree with!
Maybe we can get Binky to somehow fix that!
What did you have in mind?
I don’t know. Maybe Binky could rearrange rich people’s DNA to like art more!
That would be a neat trick!
I’ll bake Binky some nice treats before I ask him.
With your great cooking, you’ll have it bagged!
I hope so!
That’s exactly how I feel about teaching.
It would be nice for our work to be appreciated more.
Yeah, I blog for the passion of it all because if I want to fool myself into thinking it is for money, then I am doing something wrong.
It’s a good thing that passion and artistic expression pay the bills. Oh wait… they don’t 😐
I guess they pay the bills for a few artists who are famous, but not for the rest of us!
Art that sells the best is of a decease artist.
Well I don’t feel like dying just yet!
You better not. Besides, you can’t collect the sales then.
Not unless you fake your own death. Not that I would, of course.
I’m pretty sure faking death is against the law.
It probably is!
That sounds frighteningly like my art career!
Like most artists, I think!
Winky, are you looking to make more chocolate money? Perhaps, you could help Twink. Hire her to do art for your chocolate factory!
Twink already does the art for my chocolates, but since I give most of them away we don’t really make any money!
That’s a great idea Red, maybe Twink could give lessons to my Zombies, they would definitely treat her to something 🙂
Actually not a good idea, they
would probably try to eat her 🙁 xxxx
I think I’d prefer to stay away from your Zombies, Andro. I don’t think they’re very trustworthy! Not to mention dangerous.
The tied up and gagged
one’s are safe Twink 🙂
They still give me the creeps!
They are a very scary bunch I know, but harmless in Fraz Traps so we need to ask Fraz to make some more ready for Spring and Summer 🙂
We can’t have you making our pancakes and cakes feeling creeped out all the time now can we? 🙁
I hope Fraz’s traps continue to work. I guess they will as long as the Zombies aren’t smart enough to figure them out. As long as they stay a long way away from me I guess it’s okay.
Most of those Zombies are incredibly thick but there is one called David Cameron that has started learning a few simple tricks so we need to watch out for him, just in case 🙂
I’ll keep a look out for him, then. We don’t need any tricky Zombies, that’s for sure!
Well you know what they say, you have to die to become a famous artist. Don’t do that though.
Have a fabulous day. 🙂
I’m too young to die for my art!
Love Doron’s painting!
So do I! And Fraz does, too.
Me too Deb 🙂 xxxx
I’ve got a big chocolate milkshake her for you…passing it to you now!
Mmmmm I love your chocolate milkshakes Deb, actually I like all of your recipe treats 🙂 I can feel a party coming on… xxxx
Yeah we need a spring party! If spring ever gets here!
I think it might have arrived here Fraz it’s lovely out there today, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and even the zombies are chuckling to themselves… So that’s where my chocolate candy disappeared to 🙁 Grrr
It’s still cold here. Maybe I should fly everyone over to your place in my Frazline jet. Then we could have a spring party!
Yes the more the merrier,
it’s party time 🙂 yaaaaaaaaay
It’ll be a weekend spring break party!
Doron’s doing good on the painting, but not on the money it looks like.
Just remember Doron, Van Gogh didn’t make any money either.
I guess most artists die penniless, but I’d rather not be one of them!
Ah, so true…
So true… 😉
Yes, but it shouldn’t be!
ah money and art, … do the two ever mix Twink? (I’m as poor as a church mouse, BUT I do have some cheese tho’ ) 🙂 xxx
Money and art don’t mix for me, either. I have some chocolate. Maybe we could have a little art party.
I hope that you will be sharing
some of that cheese ma Lady 🙂 xxxx
Save some for me if she does!
And me too! Especially if the cheese is in chocolate cheesecake!
Don’t worry Winky there is always
enough for you to share with us 🙂
I hope it’s a really big chocolate cheesecake!
I will share with you Deb, we can have cheese on toast or try with lemon and fruity cupcakes if you like 🙂 xxxx
That sounds yummy. I’d like to try that too!
Winky you are always welcome to try my zany experiments with foodstuffs, now while I think on, try out these marmite baked apple, cabbage, sprout and turnip lollipops, the zombies love them 🙂
Well I’m not sure about those. Don’t you have anything without any sprouts or cabbage?
Yes there is the plain old lollipop stick with ‘Just Licked’ written on it if you fancy one, but those don’t sell so well, I don’t know why because you can make some nifty looking toys out of the empty lolly sticks 🙂
Used lollipops don’t sound very good either! Maybe I’ll just send you a shipment of chocolate treats from my factory.
You have a great talent Twink. Keep doing what you love.
Thank you, Jeremy! I will.
Well maybe you could start copying money instead of trees then you could ‘PAINT the town’! W.C.C.
Painting money is probably the only way I can make some with my art!
It looks like a good start Twink.
Thanks, Chris. You wouldn’t want to buy it, would you?
Ain’t that the truth!
Unfortunately it seems to be!
I bet that whatever you make, I make less…
It’d be pretty hard to make less than I do!
Twink, I think you are a wonderful artist and sometimes, money can’t always be the motive…
Thank you, Lauren. And you’re right, of course. Though it is nice to eat!
Don’t worry Twink you will start earning lots of money for your artwork, I just hope that it is in your lifetime 🙂
There are hundreds of famous artists around the world that were only recognised for their awesomeness after they were… Well much later, there’s no need to go into any details 🙂
I for one think your artistry is spot on 🙂
Maybe I should paint like crazy for a few years and then fake my own death. It’s probably the only way I’ll make any real money.
A good idea, paint, paint and paint some more there are pots of cash to be earned 🙂
Well so far I haven’t seen any pots of cash, but I keep dreaming.
Alright, you do make a good point! Money does come in handy. I’ll keep my fingers crossed the your work starts to sell soon! 🙂
Oops, my reply didn’t land where I wanted it to..it’s been a long day! 🙂
That’s okay, sometimes replies do that. I guess I should try harder to sell my art. But I don’t like selling, and I love painting!
Hi Lauren, I agree with you, Twink
has a genius edge to her artwork 🙂
Thank you, Andro!
You’re welcome Twink 🙂
Thanks, Andro, let’s just hope she gets recognized before…well, you know…:)
Yes, let’s hope!
Yes her talents need to be realised while she is alive, I wonder how many painting she will sell? I hope thousands 🙂 Have a great Friday Lauren xx
I hope thousands, too! I won’t hold my breath, though.
No don’t hold it for too long Twink 🙁
I just realised, you said that you
wouldn’t hold your breath 🙂 lol Oop’s
If I did hold my breath until all my paintings sold, I think I’d be dead!
I could get Winky to give you the kiss of life though, now that must be a tempting offer? 🙂
It is to me!
Brilliant artwork from Doron here, I really like this one 🙂 I like the reflections and character, Fraz looks positively wicked paddling that kayak 🙂
Yes, Doron did a great job on kayaking Fraz! Fraz is really determined in this one.
The cartoon sketch you added is awesome Peter, first there is Twink adding her frustration, trying not to be seen as a greedy artist and then there is the final scene where she is blatantly honest 🙂
Very funny this one, but then all your cartooning and comic making is excellent, that’s why we keep calling back in to Wombania for more laughs and friendship 🙂 Have a wicked day Peter and thank you for all of your fine efforts, you are great 🙂
Thanks, Andro. Like usual you are more than kind. I think this cartoon expresses the frustration many artists feel, regardless of their discipline.
aaawww 🙁 the life of an artist is a tough one. Hang in there Wink!!
It is, and I will!
I’m just like you, Twink!!! I feel better because I’m not the only one so thanks for your honesty. lol
It’s hard to make art pay, and you’re certainly good enough that you should be paid! A lot!
It might not buy chocolate, but it buys a kayak, woot! 🙂
I wish it was a chocolate kayak!
Green paint takes green to buy. Bummer.
I guess I could make my own with spinach or something.
If people did it just to make money a lot less would do it
Yes, probably almost no one.
That’s great that she makes enough to paint!
Yes, I barely do! As long as I don’t want to paint a mural.
My Hubby can relate to this.
Is he an underappreciated artist?
You and me both Twink.
An artist’s life is rarely a wealthy one.
Ooo another one that tweaked at another question! Following ones dreams and passions is awesome but then we need to be practical too huh? 😉
I’d buy Twink’s painting though 😀
Sometimes we’re compelled to follow our passions, despite their impracticality. Starving, but fulfilled, I suppose.
