I chose the Church Hall in Bluefish Way to show to the world your masterpieces


I have laid on Strawberry Champagne…….


…….and canapes.


I have ensured the rest rooms are clean.


There is also a park for your children to play in while you are attending the Art Exhibition


The Invitations have been sent to all parts of the world and you are coming…….


………….by the bus load.


So here you are (except the “readers” who Liked 5 seconds after publishing. Thank you and goodbye ! ).

Time to open the doors and let us all see your masterpieces !!

Our first exhibitor is



She water colours the canals of Venice, or colours the waters of the canals of Venice. I am unsure which is true !!

RvI: This is her Pearly Queen period or created by bacteria !!


RvI: Yvonne used the “spilling of coffee” technique for this one


RvI: The Infrared shows Ralph to be a hot head !!


RvI: Ran out of paint did you Yvonne ??


RvI: Yvonne is abreast with modern paint styes


RvI: I think this is her best work showing her skill in spaghetti throwing

Our second exhibitor is



His artwork is renowned for his skill in having no skill !!

RvI: This painting shows that I want to go home !!

After that unfortunate experience we now have



RoSy has great talent in the Saludos y Abrazos technique

RvI: This one is brilliantly excavated. It shows the Ralph in his true form

Just around the corner is the work of

RvI: An unfinished work by Marsha where she has been using high explosive to remove the wrinkles on Ralph’s face.

And now we can see the works of



Sylvia is known for producing her art while laying on a hammockΒ  !!

RvI: Sylvia is emphasising the age of the subject in this one. 18 with 49 years of experience !!


RvI: This is a magnificent representation of Ralph. Right on Q !!

And finally



Katie is famous for painting while SUP, Stand Up Paddle-boarding in the gator infested swamps of Florida.

RvI: Katie has called this one “Ra Astaire”. Her brush dances as Ginger Rogers !!


RvI: “Ra Lovely” it says. Has she been hacking into my secret file ?

    • Hi Steve πŸ˜€ Katie did wonders with the last two. Oh thanks for the Mother’s Day greeting. So where’s my box of chocolates then πŸ˜‰ lol Ralph πŸ˜€


  13. You quite suit being a woman Ralph. Is there something you are not telling us? Watch the hand too. It seemed to be a wandering.


    • Hi Sandra πŸ˜€ Thanks a bunch !! Yes. I’m not telling you that I am Victoria Secrets secret weapon πŸ˜‰
      Wandering hand ? That’s one of my medical conditions. The treatment is usually a slap in the face. πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Debby πŸ˜€ Thank you so much and I’m so pleased that you enjoyed the post and didn’t make any blonde jokes. Ralph xox ❀


  14. Fabulous post, MFR. I’m afraid I went way too tame with my photoshopping. I love you as a blond with tons of lipstick! Very talented friends. This should inspire us all! πŸ™‚ There must be more we can do. I must retire first. πŸ™‚


    • Hi MVBFM πŸ˜€ You are a ⭐ as well. No matter what you did it added to the enjoyment of the post. Thank you so much. Everyone was magnificent in their own way. Retire Marsha !! Ralph xox ❀


  15. First of all Ralphie, thanks so much for the strawberry bubbly and for cleaning the restroom. Although, I must admit that I’d feel violated using your restroom – just sayin’. The artwork is all incredible!!! The Infrared one, where you have a flaming head and blue face, however; is my favorite. No, wait..maybe the one of you as a blonde chica. No, I’m going with the blue face one because you as a woman makes me jealous. πŸ˜‰


    • Hi Celeste πŸ˜€ I must apologise for Ralph van Ishing’s behaviour in the rest room. He still has the key !!
      What !! Me as a woman makes you jealous ?? Oh dear. I suppose I will have to talk to you about lipstick, shopping, Wonder bras, fitness and being a vegan now. πŸ˜‰ Oh, where has the original ME gone ?
      Big hug my friend. Ralph xox ❀


  16. What an honor to have my art work displayed in your gallery.

    I would say that the event was a huge success.
    I enjoyed the hobnobbin’ & rubbing elbows with the other artists.
    The drinks were top notch & the canapΓ©s were to die for.
    You are a supreme host!
    xx Saludos y Abrazos xx


    • Hi RoSy πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for your lovely comment RoSy. I’ll use it as a reference for any further function I may have in the future. Then they can blame you πŸ˜‰ heehee.
      You did a wonderful picture. You are a ⭐ . Thank you so much for being a big part of this post my friend. Hugs. Ralph xox ❀

  18. What a fabulous exhibition why is this not on at some national gallery, charging admission, guided tours??? A lot of fun to be sure.


    • Hi Tommy (?) πŸ˜€ Ha !! These readers of mine wouldn’t pay. I have to pay them to Like and they extort horrendous blackmail prices to comment. Thank heavens you’re a freebee πŸ˜‰ lol Ralph πŸ˜€


      • Haha well that’s people for you Ralph. Great exhibition by the way. Last year I had a student draw my portrait for me, it was very humbling to see her results, I have them hanging in my lounge room. Have a good day.


      • Thank you so much for commenting and your praise.

        That’s nice of your student to draw you and a great place to hang it.

        Thanks. Today has been a good one. I wish you the same πŸ™‚


  19. I choose Rosy’s, makes you look like a dashing gentleman ready to take your new girlfriend out on the town. Nice suit and the rose is perfect for a man of chivalry with good manners.

    Have fun on your date!!

    ❀ carmen


    • Hello Carmen πŸ˜€ How sweet and what a brilliant idea. I just love your thinking my friend. Ralph xox ❀


  20. Hi Ralph, this was sure a great exhibition ! The strawberry champagne was very welcome and the park for to play for the children was magnificent…….hahaha ! Love the infra-red of Yvonne and the one of Rosy who let make you looking like James Bond, very good ! I didn’t made it with mine but I enjoyed a lot the art technique of the others πŸ™‚ !


    • Hi Serach πŸ˜€ Thanks for coming. It doesn’t matter that you did not send an exhibit, just you thinking about it is good enough for me. I hope you are having a lovely week. Ralph xox ❀


    • Thanks Search πŸ™‚
      Edited by Ralph : SΓ©rach, RoSy, SΓ©rach ! heehee


  21. Hi, Ralphie. I tried to leave a comment this morning, but couldn’t get any pages to load. I just wanted to say, I love them all, but that one of you in the tux and holding the rose. Whoa! VaVa Voom! I almost swooned. πŸ˜‰ ❀ ❀ XOXOXO


    • LOL – Thanks Elizabeth. He does clean up well in a tux – eh? πŸ˜‰
      And – the rose – I was hoping – was inviting.


      • Carry on you two, don’t mind me !! heehee

        There you are, my fashion designer RoSy and my Va Va Voom girl Elizabeth and between you all you talk about is ” he does clean up well in a tux”. Ha !! I AM clean normally !! Though my mind may need a little soap and water now and again πŸ˜‰

        I’ll leave you two ladies to it then. There is coffee and cakes over there. Help yourselves.

        My love and hugs (plus a rose) to you both. Ralph xox xox ❀ ❀


      • Of course you are, Darlin. I’d never insinuate you were ever less than squeaky clean…well, except for the mind thing. But then we could all use a little extra soap in that department. πŸ˜€ You in the tux and a couple glasses of the strawberries and champagne and I’m a happy little groupie. πŸ˜‰ Love and hugs. ❀


      • You have just given me a great idea for my next post sweetie. Here have another glass of strawberries in champagne. Love and hugs xox ❀


  22. Very creative. It’s amazing what photo shop can do. Too bad I’m to cheap to buy it and use one of those free programs instead. Does the basics fine, but nothing like what you have displayed.


    • Hi LB πŸ˜€ I have a freebee as well. ArcSoft Studio 5.5 which came with my ancient Canon printer. I still use it as it does all I need for uploading to my blog. I created my picture in this post with this editor. Have a lovely week. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hi Frank πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for your fantastic comment. On behalf of the exhibitors, thank you, and for myself, thank you for not mentioning blondes πŸ˜€ Ralph


  23. Wow! So much talent in your space. I commend all! “lol” “lol” “lollipop” 😎 xo


    • Hi Resa πŸ˜€ They are all stars and I am sure they are all grateful to receive your praise. Thank you my friend. Ralph xoxox ❀


  24. Ralph I think you need to lighten up. Stop taking like so seriously. Look at the humorous side of things for a change………All this moping and groaning…
    Just saying~


    • Hi Cindy πŸ˜€ Okay. Oh dear. I am so happy when I’m moping and groaning. Ralph xox ❀
