hey there say, tobia! ... say, i was all ready to mail them today, and well:

i decided to add a tad of dark to bamboozal's face, so he'd look more like him... and i did one of my 'best tricks':

i ruined the face... i been here about SIX hours now and have not fixed it...
so, will have to stay up all night and fix it...

if it is not freezing, i will mail THEM BOTH tomorrow...

sorry--i am very very famous in my house, here, for ruining everything i touch... :)
but--alas, i HAVE to, or i do not get the likeness ... i should settled for less, but i that i not good for portraits...

i am very thankful, though, that i did not have to 'touch up your mom', or
she would be in 'ruined limbo' too, for a few days, :))


it will be okay, before i send it, though, not to worry...
:)

i reckon i should have left it alone... but who'd have thought, ONE tiny DAB would have ruined it... :))

hey there say, all...


this one is NOT done, i need to DO the rail, but,
i've waited sooooooo LONG to get to this and get done, i just
want to 'help myself' feel encouraged, :))

the photo was another 'not very good one and very tiny' :)
but i love the sentiments and love in it...
and WANTED to see it painted...
plus, wanted to make it a surprise gift...

it is A RENEWAL of vows, and the really neat gal is pregnant and her
really neat husband is a really neat guy!
they were italy... :)

i could not find a clear photo of the buildings so they look a
bit 'like a fakey backdrop' :)...but in this case, that's okay,
folks can keep couple more in mind, i reckon...


will put the finished one up, when i DO the highlights on this rail......

THIS one, is for mouse's neice (i reckon i ruined the surprise)
... but it will be a surprise, for her, though...
there is something special about having uncles...
i never got to have places to go with my uncles, or even
see them... hope it will be a precious memory of that day:
i think? he said that they went climbing...

am going to send it this week (in case mouse, you are here--so you will know it is on the way, soon)...

I've just started exploring my new "local" museums in southern California. So far we've made two visits to the Norton Simon. What a great collection they have!

Last visit I was entranced by this Picasso:

http://images.nortonsimon.org/viewer/index.php?id=F.1969.38.10.P

Sorry I can't just post the photo but it's copyright protected.

I just find this painting "Woman with a Book" (1932) wonderful on so many levels. Of course one cannot know what the artist was thinking but I'm imagining Picasso saying "OK, this is how it's done NOW". And getting a kick out of showing off his prowess. He incorporates so many basic, first art class lessons into this piece that it's surely deliberate - e.g. he uses EVERY primary, ROYGBIV, but places them in perfect complements and harmonies so that they are effortlessly showcased around the canvas. Same "lessons" to the viewer on composition.

I also had a chance to spend a few wonderful hours viewing at the Palm Springs Art Museum. They also have a terrific collection.

Great Henry Moore sculptures, a terrific art glass collection, and two excellent current exhibits...

And yesterday we went to LACMA. I haven't really warmed up to LACMA yet, but I'm sure I will.

They have a special exhibit going on about the dresses of Diane Von Furstenberg. That was fun for 10 minutes of psychedelic browsing at the end of our visit:

(Sigh... photo upload not working right now...)

hey there say, fishfinder... wow, hope you can post the stuff soon...
would love to see it...


i am so much hoping to get to master the portraits, for me, they can be hard, as, no matter what i do, i get 'face warp' as to the OUTTER edges... ONCE i get the that, it goes better...

many times i use tiny photos that have 'caught my fancy'... the last pic of mouse and his niece, was a very nice photo, to start with... :)

i have just finished two more, but one has NOT gotten to its NEW HOME yet, as, i had (yet again) a wrong address..., so far, folks twice, have moved--i usually go by this: christmas cards do not come back, so they have not moved, ;))



here is one of the new ones...

I got to be a docent at our history museum Saturday. It's been a while since I have done this. I was on my game, though. I took photos of the museum's new exhibit, which combines art with science, the art and science of Laura Cunningham, called A State of Change: California's Forgotten Landscapes. (Named for the book she wrote.)

There is some of her original work, framed, in place, along with other replications of the art in her book. I am only showing the art that she carted up here to display. This is about the art, not the history.
