Thank you EQ, MW, and Lionpaws. I have more but finding it hard to find enough time. Too much going on. And that's mostly my fault. Taking another oil class next week. Smile

Sounds like a lot of fun Gram. I just purchased a couple more acrylic painting lessons this morning. Now, if I could only turn off my pc and do some painting Whistle

And that is a Big problem in my house. Oh the 'Lure' of the computer and all the fun it contains. ( Not to mention all the stuff in RL that must be seen to.)
I try to keep a project on my painting desk and then try to work on it if only for a little while.

I started my Acrylic Portrait lesson. It's about 4 hours and I got through the first 30 minutes of the video and it took me at least 2 hours. It's suppose to be relaxing....right?? Why am I stressed out?? giggle

I couldn't paint if I tried. Maybe I should get a paint by numbers kit and join the club. I used to love doing that as a kid.

It takes practice. If you stick with it, it will become more fun as you learn more and use what you've learned. I still take lessons to learn but also because it gets me painting. I've never used a video to paint something but those who have love them because they can pause the lesson when they need to catch up or redo something.

I used to paint-by-numbers when I was younger, MW. I enjoyed doing that and also coloring those poster pictures. Found it relaxing.

I have to use the video lessons because I never have time to actually go to a RL lesson. I hope to sign up for a winter session for acrylic lessons at our local art museum this coming winter. It is nice to be able to hit pause on the lesson but I am sure my technique is terrible and it's hard to use the right amount of pressure when using the paintbrush. I love it, just get a little tense at times.

@ MW I use to do those oil paint by numbers sets when I was a kid too. I wonder if you can still get them?

I admire you BG for trying. Once you learn the 'methods' it will become easier to paint. I finally got better at 'floating' after a teacher showed me how she did it. What a relief! It's those little 'tricks' that make a painting look good.

And you can find those paint-by-number kits at Hobby Lobby for sure but 'on-line' would work too. Husband had bought himself a few when he was looking for a hobby but never used them so I gave them to the grandsons.

Stargazing with Spades. Common interest? This is promising.

Digging for metals at work.

Relaxing in the pool and getting to know each other better.

Olie gets to freeze someone for his work. The little devil in him enjoys it.

That night he watches some TV with Spade. Definitely sparks of interest between these two.

Olie really likes his job.

Olie is building.....something.....

He built a gun that changes things from what they were into something else. He tries it out on an office chair.

Both Spades and Olie like the kids channel.

Olie tries out his Ray gun at home.

He admires the lovely pedestal he had just transfigured and put in the garden.

Oh, joy. A rocket ship. Maybe he'll concentrate on building it and quit the transfiguring of objects.

Looks like transfiguring objects is more fun than building a rocket ship.

Olie and spades getting flirty. Must be the cookies she baked.

Now they're sharing secrets. I couldn't find out what those secrets were.

Thank you!

Olie at work.  Did you do something you shouldn't have, Olie?

Fire!  Stand back everyone!  So Olie plays the Hero and puts out the fire he started.

Olie was followed into the washroom.  What ever happened to privacy?

Olie finishes off his day at work with fishing on the company property.  He could get used to this.

Back home again he spends time working on his Spaceship.

Another mistake in transfiguring objects.  Olie is getting good at putting out fires.

Olie spending quality time with Spades stargazing.

A mishap in space.  Olie barely makes it back home.  Oh, his poor spaceship!  It's totaled.



Oh, oh.  Spades has caught something.  

Playing with his favorite toy.

Olie and Spades chat over a late dinner.

The next day after he got home from work, Olie asks Spades to go steady.  Obviously she said yes. This was his second time to ask. The first time she said no which hurt their relationship for awhile.

They celebrated with a 'selfie'.

And a kiss.

Olie decided to 'strike while the iron is hot' and ask Spades to marry him.  Eh, are you sure Olie?

giggle Sorry to take so long to get back to the story.

There is a tense moment while Spades seems to examine the ring. Breathe, Olie! Then again, maybe she's just enjoying the moment.

Acceptance!

Yes! Yes I will!

Spades meets Olie when he gets home from work. A loving Moment.

The family all together, a rare occasion. Spades and Oilie plan their wedding.

The day of the wedding, which they held at their home, there was some confusion about who was to bake the wedding cake. Olie, being a level 10 cook wanted to do it. Then a caterer showed up and took over.

The wedding guests and Spades mingle around the outdoor bar.

Finally it's time for the service and Spades and Olie meet at the Gazabo.

they start exchanging their vows but Olie suddenly freezes up and the ceremony halts for a bit while Spades calms him down.

After getting Olie to take a few deep breaths, Spades suggests that they try again.

Olie says "Ah..do I have to?" Spades says, "Please, for me."

You like it, I love it!

I have no idea what happened but at least I didn't lose what I'd already done.

So where were we? The wedding ceremony.
Ohhh, for me......sigh

You may kiss the bride.

Everyone celebrates.



My nerves are shot!

The guests leave and Olie has a surprise for Spades.

He's taking her up in the spaceship for their honeymoon.

OhhhhKay

Olie hustles Spades aboard while Spades questions if she really wants to do this.

Looks like it turned out well.


Safely back on Terra Firma

Thank you, thank you!

Olie made it through his wedding day.

Thank you everyone! That is so nice to hear. They are fun to play. There are so many spontanious actions, cute ones, etc., that It's hard to get them all. My game froze or crashed, and when I got it 'fixed' all was well except for some reason the screenshots were missing. I moved the whole EA TS4 folder out and put everything back in, or so I thought, but they were missing when I went to check if I'd labeled the recent ones. Not sure what I'm going to do now.
