May 17,2021. Pandemic Blues. Gumby has been busy, planting spring flowers in the backyard. Suddenly, Pokey comes galloping around the corner, right through the new garden. He crashes into the wagon, sprays sand everywhere and topples the new flowers! “Oh no!”shouts Gumby “ What are you doing?!” “I’m sorry , I didn’t mean to. My galloping was out of control!”whimpers Pokey . Gumby takes a deep breath, decides it’s not so bad and says to Pokey “ Well I hope you are okay. Get up now and give me a hand with fixing the mess.” In the end , the garden was not quite as Gumby planned but maybe it was even better. The two buddies celebrated with chips and cold drinks. #sarahcowlingartist #3dcollage#storytelling#pokeyandgumby#gardening#canadianartdaily#canadiancollagecollective#covidcollagechronicles#londonartistsstudiotour #londonontario#cbcarts#canadianartist

May 13,2021. Pandemic Blues. After such an exciting adventure in the forest, Gumby and Pokey have gone for a quiet walk in their town. They’ve been to the library to pick out a new book and bought some flowers at the market. Now they are sitting at a cafe in the park . Gumby has his morning coffee and Pokey has a large bottle of orange pop. Gumby says “ On our way home I think we should stop at the grocery store for more chips.” “And apples!”shouts Pokey “ I like crunchy apples!” “Okay , but are you really going to drink all that pop?” “ No problem!”answers Pokey. And he does! #sarahcowlingartist #3dcollage#storytelling#gumbyandpokey#canadianartdaily#covidcollagechronicles#londonartistsstudiotour #londonontario#canadiancollagecollective#cbcarts

May 12, 2021. Pandemic Blues. Gumby and Pokey have been walking around and around in the forest. Gumby feels terrible! He thinks he should have been paying attention and not lost the path. And Pokey has been very quiet because he is really afraid. He’s thinking that everyone says he’s brave and bold but really he is very afraid . Pokey doesn’t like being lost. As they are climbing over a large rock, Pokey suddenly says “ I know this rock! This is my jumping rock!” “ Look “says Gumby “ There is a raccoon family on the other side!” The Racoon family jumps up in surprise and Papa Racoon says “ What’s going on?”in a gruff voice. Pokeys afraid again but Gumby says “We’ve been lost in the woods!” And so the raccoon family explain how to find their way home while Pokey and the Baby Racoon practice jumping off the rock( after agreeing to share the jumping rock). All the jumping in this story has worn everyone out and Pokey and Gumby are happy to be going home!#sarahcowlingartist #gumbyandpokey #raccoons#storytelling#3dcollage#canadianarts#covidcollagechronicles#londonartistsstudiotour #londonontario#canadianartdaily#cbcarts

May 10, 2021. Pandemic Blues. The other day, Pokey was sprayed by a skunk! And afterwards he went home and had a bath. Actually about 3 baths with special shampoo and other things to try to remove the smell. He was almost done when he noticed all the pictures taped to the walls. “What’s all this?”he asked. “ Oh” says Gumby “ I am thinking about redecorating the bathroom. Especially now it needs to be freshened! Those photos are my ideas- I am trying to decide which one I like the best.” Hmmm thinks Pokey. “I guess that’s a good idea. But I like it the way it is!” “It will be nice when it’s all done!”says Gumby “and anyway it really needs to be cleaned up now!” Pokey is a little annoyed . It’s not his fault the skunk sprayed him! Gumby notices that Pokey looks upset and so he suggests a nice afternoon tea and cookies. Happiness is restored!#sarahcowlingartist #3dcollage#pokeyandgumby#storytelling#contemporarycollage#collageworldwide#covidcollagechronicles#londonartistsstudiotour #londonontario#canadiancollagecollective#canadianartist#cbcarts
