Two years old today and Angry painting.....

...and for once it's not me!

The One!


Been going two years today and I meant to have a special give away that myself, Ray and Lee have been trying to sort out but it's taking too long (hopefully soon but if not I'll sort out something else to give away)....

Thanks for reading and commenting and here's to maybe a third year as well.......

....and now for some angry painting from Ray, as you know we're on nights at the moment and Ray is involved in a painting challenge with Anne but he's not happy, he's cursing a lot, he's stabbed himself in a finger quite badly while painting a 28mm Mouse Mage (Ray calls it something else though but I won't print it in case there are any sensitive souls reading!) and he keeps shouting at me that's my fault as I made friends with the bitch Anne and dragged him into this situation!


The figure painter in his natural state, concentrating, focused, at one with the miniature and completely unaware he's been photographed......

until he spots the paparazzi and unleashes the anger but we all know it's Anne's fault as he keeps shouting, that bottle nearly hit my strawberry blonde head but I was laughing so much he missed...





....and strawberry blondes do have souls!!!!!!

  1. He shouldn't paint when he is angry. It makes for an unhappy mouse (and unmanly) miniature. He should be thinking of strawberries and unicorns.

  2. Strawberry blondes have souls but pure gingers don't. He did look fairly angry in that second picture. I almost want him to win so that he doesn't exact revenge on Anne. Congrats for lasting two years too Angry :) Here's to a third.

    1. Bloody hell Ray, you look pissed off in that picture. I'd be afraid, but I'm pretty sure I could take you in hand to hand combat.

      I haven't even started painting mine yet!!

  9. Congrats to 2 brilliant years Fran! and if Ray is painting fluffy bunnies, Gandalf's mouse, and unicorns perhaps he should be wearing an apron... ;)

    Cheers,

  10. Ah I see the problem. Looks as if Ray is confused about whether he's sitting down to paint a mini or eat a messy Italian Dinner

    Congrats on the birthiversary!

  12. Congratulations on your two years Angry and my wish for you is that one day you get to take a bite out of what Pam's got there!!

    And tell Ray it's his own damn fault he's in this mess. If he wasn't always picking on you I wouldn't have to do this to him. He's brought it on himself!!

  22. Congratulations on the blogging anniversary. Does that mean you get angry cake?

    As to Ray, he is looking very angry. Still I'm loving the bib, is it used for lunch/dinner/whatever it's called when you eat at that time.

  30. Well done that man, here's for the next two years.

    It's not a bib, it's a painter's cravat (very flamboyant).

    Regards,
    Matt

  31. Happy Birthday, It is amazing how much (both in hits and readers) you have achieved!!! Congratulations!

    I will be looking forward to seeing how the contest goes... that mouse sure is not easy subject! BTW... that bib is useless... as long as Ray is wearing it, he will not spill any paint, the moment he does not he will though!
    That is the way it always is for me. I wear old clothes while painting and never spill a thing, but be sure the moment I just want to do a small touch-up in good clothes, it all goes south!

  56. Sounds like you're having a great time with Ray, there, dude. Congrats on doing the blog for two years straight. It's hard work cranking out post after post. Luckily, for the rest of us, you do it in an entertaining way. It's almost a variety type blog, with movie reviews and other stuff thrown into your miniature painting posts. Very cool. That why I always come back. Might take me awhile these days before I show up but I get so danged busy with the wife and family. Take care, man and keep up the grand work.
