Is It a "Gorf" or a Frog?

Sandy's challenge was to create a piece of art using her photo of a ceramic frog found here.


This was done with color crayons and I couldn't avoid the reflective glare from the flash. Since that is the case, I'm saying the reflection helps the frog look like ceramics. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I don't know why I still attempt to use crayons. I don't care for them.

I like your gorf. Love the name, ha.

I haven't tried crayons, well in actually trying to do something with them other than when I use to sit down with Hunt and draw things for him.

I'm glad you drew him, inspires me to try as soon as I get done with this horse of mine. I worked on him last night but I'm just going to call him done and put it up as is when I take a photo of it. It's a waste of time to work anymore on this cheap paper I used.

Hey, CC, good job...and in crayons! I drew in my "gorf" last night and will try to paint it today if time permits. Then I saved off the owl at Sandy's and would like to try that too. You, too, maybe?

why don't you call him rauf ? Rof and grof don't sound much different. oh yes i saw the original GROF in Sandy's page, you have made him look like a movie star. He looks a bit constipated though, perhaps tired of waiting for a princess to kiss him ?

Here's something for you Crusty

A sister and brother are talking to each other when the little boy gets up and walks over to his Grandpa and says, "Grandpa, please make a frog noise."

The Grandpa says, "No."

The little boy goes on, "Please...please make a frog noise."

The Grandpa says, "No, now go play."

The little boy then says to his sister, "Go tell Grandpa to make a frog noise."

So the little girl goes to her Grandpa and says, "Please make a frog noise."

The Grandpa says, "I just told your brother 'no' and I'm telling you 'no'."

The little girl says, "Please...please Grandpa make a frog noise."

The Grandpa says, "Why do you want me to make a frog noise?"

The little girl replied, "Because mommy said when you croak we can go to Disney World!"

rauf is pretty funny there. Nice job on your gorf. I feel a bit better this week having cast on a pair of socks to knit at the 3 Day. Pink, of course. It's always good to have an artistic or creative outlet.
