You're welcome, Paul.

There's this place, in my mind, where I wander through slightly out of focus landscapes and the clarity they bring feels like the essence of pure light. I love being there, but I have no control over getting there. Your work takes me there and I stand in awe.

Five nine plus for JustTheMadeByHand and let's all go to the Coffee Shop.
Raucous clown chorus Applause.

That was beautiful, Skip.

Q. What does the electroplate process add to your classy stuff that's not there yet? Shine the metal?

I love IZ's rendition of that song. . . he did an incredible job of putting the ukulele back in the mainstream, for sure.

TFPU!

Really nice stuff, everyone.

Visited the National Portrait Gallery over the weekend. Lots of very good American art there. The presidential portraits were mostly very weak. JFK's was very good, Clinton's was original and good. The best IMO was John Tyler by George P. A. Healy. Healy seemed the best of the old school president picture makers.


My favorite painting there was City Girl. This is not a very good reproduction here, it is much more vivid in reality. It's a contemporary subject done in a very classic style. The fabric is particularly well done, much like those old Euro masters did their fabric BITD.

I disagree about the bird swamp-scape. I think it's great! Looks like an old impressionist painting.

hey there say, phylp... hee hee... well, the critters don't talk much, so i have a lot of time on my hands... ;)

yeah, i been awake all night, this time... but i will get 8 hours sleep in just a bit, as, it is sunday...

also, i unexpectedly ended up early retirement,as to work,
due to that hip-sciatic thing :(
so i have time to use wisely AND CREATIVELY...
AND... i need to write my other jake-book though... and, do a small bit of knitting and sewing, before christmas...


and another thing, too, is, i have not been able to paint for nearly 30 years, so this challenge at trying new things with the paint, is like showing a horse, a whole fresh field of meadow! :O :)

*i used to do landscapes and birds and trees, and clouds, but now, i really want to help folks with these portraits, and SOMETIMES whewww, they really get tough, and all due to one TINY thing--the key is trying to discern what it is, as we overlook what it is :)) --even if you have to stay up all night, :))

though, i usually stay up, 'cause it is fun, :) really, and a good melding of thoughts, movement, proper placement, and color melds, etc, as you know, and so much more... and i get lost in the moments... :)
i reckon, i am just 60, and it is my time, :))



justthemade... as to the bird, thank you, i always seem to find what i think is fun, and want to send it to my mom... then, i feel that i can't do it, and feel that i am sending her second best, :(
i think i will send it to her with a bit more confidence, now, >:D<


i sure loved the idea, i think it may have worked better in oil, the lines would FLOWED better, :)


well, YES, now, I HAVE to go to sleep... without 8 hours i will be in a daze and the cats and dog will take over the house, ;))
