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, ;))

Cerro "Pedernal"

My bad misspelling. I was confusing it with something else I recently read.
I think it means " flint hill"

At any rate ,O'Keefe loved the view and thought that if she painted it enough times "...God would just give it to me"

For all of the time O'Keefe spent up there, she didn't produce much that reflected to true beauty of the area

Fortunately for me, and, unfortunately for you in this case, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

EDIT: excellent stuff neebee. You have your own style and touch. Keep showing!!

The contrast between the bird and the surroundings gives the bird a sense of being lighter than air just at the moment its taking off. Good job.

hey there say, ward trotter...


thank you, i was afraid he'd look like was 'standing on the water' or, if the swamp water did not 'portray' proper, the 'mowed grass' :O

i have another 'in flight' one that want to do, but for me, not my mom this time, :))


i was nearly going to put a tad more detail in this birds feathers to make it look more real (the tail) but then i realized that when the take off, we DO NOT see that, :))


well, at any-rate, it is ready for my dear mommy... :)


note:
i GOT the idea from a photo that i knew my mom would love, so the idea
is not all mine... if i had not seen the photo, i WOULD have done the
bird over a manmade-type-LAKE that my mom and i loved to see... a lake in calif...

The detail of the reflection of the bird in the water is very cool and well done.

^^^ nice batrock, and quite thrifty of you. but i have to say that my favorite thing about pastels was how wonderful - and luxurious - the sanded paper was to touch. The whole process - so tactile. So expensive though!

hey there say... all...

got another of the old black & white, from the kids's great aunt...

guessed at the colors, but i know she loved blue...

this is for firstborn son, for a birthday gift, though, perhaps he may not appreciate it now--hope he will later... she loved them very very much...

they USED very red lipstick, back then... :)
and had, or had access at the photographer's to this
lovely jewelry from mexico...

i always loved their
earrings, when we used to shop there... but i opted of course,
to buy the cheeper 'plata' with the enamel flowers... not as elegant, but, very lovely, as well, in different ways...

That's very nice, neebee. Last Friday, my gf signed us up for a drawing class at the Norton Simon. She's the artist, I'm just along for the ride, you understand. The class was on drawing heads. I have new respect for those who draw portraits. The proper proportions and perspective of the human face is not easy to achieve.

Saw this artist, Thierry de Cordier at the Venice Biennale over the summer... some of the best painting I've ever seen though these images don't do it justice. Really powerful work.
