Post by: BBE on September 06, 2013, 09:17:12 AM
Hmmm, put the view up to 150% and I see a tree, some branches at the bottom of last pic. One if not two pieces which may have an eagle.

In Typos last post she used the word 'hornswoggled'. Perhaps a clue that it is perhaps, maybe, possibly a painting of Mom and Dad in a tree??

Are some of those pieces upside down, or turned around?  'yd' could be 'ph'?  And maybe that's the @ symbol?

(Maybe 'imp' is impetuous, impulsive or impossible!?)  :mhihi
Title: Re: HEGPS - September 2013 Fundraiser
Post by: BBE on September 06, 2013, 07:58:50 PM
I defitootly see a ©. And an eagle behind the piece with 'Judy'. 

Eyeballing the pieces should the piece with 'Llo' have the piece:

(http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3701/9691344186_2f8c38e853_o.jpg) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/44598433@N07/9691344186/)

But then that would place '©Judy Lloyd' near the top of the puzzle.  :puzzled2

Ciao for now.  :ecwink

"Who is Silvia?"
By William Shakespeare


Who is Judy?


Who is Judy? what is she,
    That all our posts do name her?
Quoted in this puzzle is she:
    The clues such pieces did show here,
That she might contemplated be.

Is she kind as she is fair?
    For talent lives with kindness.
Love doth to her eyes appear,
    To teach us of our blindness,
And being shown in pieces, here.

Then to Judy let us sing,
    That Judy is excelling;
She excels this puzzle thing
    Upon the forum dwelling;
To her let us all guesses bring.


(but she ain't telling, either!)

The  loose pieces  are dwindling 

the interest i hope is holding

the guesses and the speculation

has been encouraging  and embolding

Adding to the poemfest....

"Testing Our Patience"

The poems are multiplying
The guesses, they are flying!

Whatever will we find
When the pieces are aligned?

Will this special treasure
Bring us all great pleasure?

I can’t wait for this surprise
To be revealed to eager eyes!

I suspect the finished treat
Will knock us off our feet!

Something special for Hornbyphiles
If we can be patient for just a while....

Thank you to Joyce Kilmer, whose famous poem "Trees" has been reworked herein:

"Tree of Mystery"

I think that I shall never see 
Whatever is hidden in this tree
 
A tree whose boughs hold the key
To the prize for fans of Isle Hornby
 
A tree that holds a special treasure
Certain to bring us extreme pleasure
         
A tree that has weathered wind and rain
Yet is causing us to wrack our brains
 
Upon whose branches there’s a mystery
We wait and wait and wait to see
 
Guesses are made by fools like me 
But only Judy knows what’s in the tree!

 :ecwink

But see that tree?
Don't we know it?

Lonely and sad,
We need a boost
It’s Mum and Dad
Come back to roost

We’re almost there
Not long to wait
Before this pair
will nestorate

I see a beautiful tree,
with pine trees around ...
And Mom and Dad
watching their kingdom
around.
And the smell of the sea
comes to us here
in Brazil.
This wonderful island
called Hornby Island.

Has something become more a'parent"?

There is a girl named Donna

                     Over a painting you see
                     That is really meant for ME

                     The wall is all clear
                     The painting will hang here
                     But when the bidding beings
                     It's the best bid that will win
                    
                     So ladies beware
                     I am trying to be fair
                     By telling you all in advance
                     That you don't stand a chance
                     That painting belongs to me!!!!


My terrible attempt at trying to keep up to all you clever girls!!!!  :biggrin3

Bravo Linus!!!! it's a wonderful job - and we all sure were stumped in chat trying to figure out who Judy Lloyd was!  I still want to know who put the copyright mark on - because it is the same font as others we have seen in forum for years!

Next I will have to see if there is any room for me to even hope to hang this wonderful painting.  Having moved to a smaller place we are having trouble already locating things we already own - but maybe it is time for a big change!

Post by: MoJo on September 11, 2013, 06:11:15 PM
'Twas the night before auction, when all through the house
Not a keyboard was stirring, not even a mouse;
The wishes were hung o'er the mantle with care,
In hopes that the painting soon would hang there.

The bidders were nestled all snug in their beds;
While visions of Hornby danced in their heads.
Mom with her salmon, dad with his sticks,
Dreaming of next season's sweet little chicks.

When on the computer there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the keyboard I flew like a flash,
Opened the site and pleaded “Don't crash!”

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
The auction's beginning – the excitement was clear!
With the bids being placed so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment I must make a click.

More rapid than eagles the bidders they came,
None of them using their actual name.
Who I was bidding against, I don't know,
But I must be alert to the bids as they show.

I whistled and shouted at each little beep,
Too excited to eat, too nervous to sleep.
So off to the couch with my laptop I flew,
So I could stretch out (and watch TV too).

And then, in a twinkling, the auction was done,
The bids were reviewed to determine who won.
As I drew in my head and was turning around,
Suddenly an e-mail came in with a bound.

I spoke not a word but went straight to my desk,
Opened the message and thought “Surely you jest!”
A blink of the eye and the more that I read,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

The painting was mine so I let out a whistle,
And floated on air like the down of a thistle.
And all heard me exclaim as I drove out of sight,
My wish has come true!  So to all a good night!

I hope you’re aware

Madrona, that is a great idea. Do as they in doctor's offices etc. Rotate the paintings between.  We could have the painting on a revolving loan out ?

photograph of original acrylic painting
(The artist's watermark is only on the image displayed here, not on the original)


This beautiful painting, titled "Mom and Dad" by the talented artist,
Hornby Eagle Fan Judy Lloyd (aka "linused"), depicts Mom and Dad Hornby
watching over their territory.
The painting portrays the bond that Mom and Dad
share in a scene representative of the view from the
HEGPS Hornby Eagles - Nest and Territory cam.

The acrylic on canvas painting measures 20" x 24".

The stretched canvas painting will be shipped free from the artist using Canada Post.

The artist is generously donating all proceeds from the sale of the painting to the
Hornby Eagle Group Projects Society (HEGPS, www.hornbyeagles.com (http://www.hornbyeagles.com)). 
She reserves copyright on the painting and is making a very limited number of
prints available for future HEGPS fundraisers.

"Mom and Dad" will be a treasured item for a Hornby Eagle fan or wildlife art collector.

(The artist's watermark is only on the image displayed here, not on the original)

The auction will run on ebay for 10 days, starting
Thursday September 12, until Sunday September 22

The winner of the bidding on the painting wishes to remain anonymous.  She has been tuned to HEGPS for four years and was devoted to  "Phoenix".  Her bid on the painting was made in order to make a gift to HEGPS for all the work done and to bring back the cam.  When she heard the cam was in trouble, she decided there was a good way to thank you.  She loves Judy"s painting and will always treasure it..  Again, she thanks all of you who have been so very important in facilitating the camera and it's subjects.  

 :heart
