This post is for Jennifer and Frank and Christine who have all posted wonderful pictures of donkeys. Maybe donkeys are celebrating too...
This donkey lives in our bedroom and takes up a whole wall because he is life sized.
He was painted by Robert when we lived in Morocco.
He is patient and realizes that he has lots and lots of work to do.
But I think he's pretty happy today.
This donkey lives near derb Djedid. He likes eating things.......
I feel sorry that donkeys in Morocco don't have names like Neddy or Maisie.
Apparently they are just called 'the donkey'.
Great painting Robert!ReplyDelete
The little guy in the bottom photo is a beauty Elizabeth.
Thanks for adding your donkeys to the mix.
Yes, Great Painting Robert...and lifesize too!ReplyDelete
You're right Elizabeth, lots of work ahead, but with hope there comes possibility. Glad you joined in, it's never too late to join a party!

Rather disconcerting! To have a life-sized donkey in the bedroom! It should be Cupids!ReplyDelete

Wow! I thought Robert's painting was a photo!ReplyDelete
Robert's donkey is fabulous! And the fact that he's life sized makes it extraordinary! Perfect week to post him, too.ReplyDelete
Quite by coincedence there is a donkey on my latest post along with other equines.ReplyDelete
I walked through all your pictures, all the way back to Halloween. I love Robert's painting, the golden colour in your New York world all over, the rainy day views and reflections, the volunteer pumpkin,ReplyDelete
in short, each and every image! Thanks for sharing your world with us, makes me feel so good, to get glimpses from the other side of the pond! :-)
Wonderful painting ! you should give a copy to Mr ObamaReplyDelete
I spent some time in Marrakech a few years ago.l My hotal balcony looked down on the road leading to Djma-el-fna (hope spelling is correct!) and by five o'clock each morning the street was alive with donkeys pulling carts piled high with crates of fruit and vegetables. I felt so sorry for them. One day I went to a village where there was a market and there was a donkey "park" just like where we would leave our cars. These were donkeys which carried their owners and I ust say most of them looked well looked after. You must have see such things at close quarters for a long time when you were in Morocco.

No names at all?? Aaawwww...even donkeys need names! :o) Wonderful painting...Donkeys are so sweet, I think. Such a fun post...Happy weekend, Elizabeth :o) ((HUGS))ReplyDelete

Thanks for visiting me, Elizabeth. I enjoyed my visit here. I have a daughter living in NY and it's always great to see NY sites!
Love your donkey. That IS an awesome painting.ReplyDelete
To be called "donkey" here in Marrakech isn't very polite, as I'm sure you know......ReplyDelete
Take Care Elizabeth.
