Picture by Karen Hull

Did her name a mention?
Wis it ma' intention.?
Tae let yea ken her name,
is she lassie way a claim tae fame?

She wurks wunders wae honds o' skill,
everything she dis is bound tae thrill,
Her wurk she dis with passion,
An' niver wull gae oot o' fashion.

She uses pencils,graphite an' pastels tae,
These things tae me; am' no ofay.
Like magic sticks or magic wands,
She weaves them wae skill; in her lovely honds.

A hiv' admired this lass when furst a saw,
A said tae ma'sel kin yea believe that? Naw!
Whit she's dayin' canny be real,
It canny be true it's nae the richt deal.

Did her name a mention,
No yit but it's ma' intention.
wheeshed a minit ; or two!!
An' a'll gea yea a clue.

Pencil coloured,Graphite, an' pastels too,
amazing,genious,unbelieveable is the clue.
Australian,Artist and Bonny Lass,
Oan Rid Bubble she's the wan wae class.

Wan day no lang ago oan Rid Bubble,
a did a journal way a lote o' truble.
50 things aboot the Auld Yin,
an' oan ma' face a hid a big grin.

Choice of any Art Work from Red Bubble,
Ma choice wis easy a hid nae truble.
Ma' portrait dun by a Bonny lass,
niver a thocht it wid come tae pass.

Weel, dreams dae come true,
An' mine did oot the blue.
Wan day an' e-mail came,
frae a Bonny Lass way a claim tae fame.

Weel ma' dream hud come tae pass.
way an' offer frae that Bonny Lass,
This Lass wis offerin' tae dae ma' face,
An' post it oan this Red Bubble Place.

Jings,help m'a boab an' crivens tae,

Aye, aye, aye a said tae this Bonny lass,
crivens, whin wull this come tae pass?

Richt away a'll day yer face,
an' post it tae you at yer ain wee place.
Weel noo it's dun an' oan Red Bubble,
I thank yea Bonny lass Fur aw yer truble.

Dae a hiv' tae mention this lass's name?
Cos' every wan kens her; this lass o' fame.

An' tae thank this bonny Lass is my intention.

The Auld Yin.

Jings Bonny Lass yea have made me feel oan tap o' the world; hoo kin a evir thank yea enuf fur whit yea hiv' dun. This beautiful work yea hiv' created from an' auld Scoatish face is a miracle; its niver looked so good in aw it's 75 years. Then of course evirything yea dae Bonny Lass is a masterpiece. So Karen I would like to say;

Thank you Bonny Lass.

Tribute to The Auld Yin by Karen Hull

7 by 11 inch portrait of The Auld Yin (Alex Gardiner), done with pastels on Pastelmat.

This is my tribute to a wonderful, generous character that many of you may have crossed paths . He brings tirelesss support, encouragement, a charming wit and humour, to so many artists, myself included. When I stumbled upon his wish to have a portrait done by me about a week ago, I was so touched and humbled, and how could I resist the opportunity to repay, in a little way, some of the kindness he has shown to me and others. I don't have the way with words that The Auld Yin does, but hopefully, in this case pictures speak much louder than words!!!
Karen Hull.
