yeah bc - "like a surgeon short on anesthesia, the plein air artist has to work fast!"

Once the family took a roadtrip out to Canyonlands N.P., in August. Janice's field kit includes a painter's sun parasol, which needed to be augmented with the shade of the outhouse. Did 4 small studies of Moses in an hour or so, each one of completely different chroma to keep up with the light.

Why we chose August for Canyonlands is beyond me. We could have just as easily picked, say Badwater, and saved the gasoline! Over on the White Rim side, the chillun's and I did out best to make ourselves as one with the sparse shade of a 4 foot juniper while Janice cooked up some more work. The only time we could ramble were the last 2 hrs before sunset, and during this window I was able to conduct the entire family down onto the floor of Monument Basin 3rd Class - including my 5 yr old son - and up to Standing Rock for a look see.

Then, from the Rim, we trundled a large watermelon Janice had stuffed in the Cherokee at the last - Revenge was sweet! (and kinda sticky) Made a very satisfying red explosion on impact.

It's always struck me that the key to canyonland paintings is to somehow capture the air itself, and your work is telling in that regard, really good depth of field.

Thanks for another plein air quote, kabalaArch!
Getting the values correct is a great way to sell depth and a sense of space in a landscape. Your Canyonlands trip sounds like a good one. Is there a bad time to visit there?! Painting in the heat is better than in the cold, IMO.

neebee, thanks for the links. I've see Roos work before. Would love to paint with her someday.

Here are a few of my favorites from my recent trip to London. These are from the Tate Britain. What a great Museum! The entire wing devoted mostly to JMW Turner was fantastic.

hey there say, phylp... wow, love the portrait of the little girl... love to know that there are so many ways... it is okay to do them 'how one feels' at the moment...

dark shadows, etc.. or not...

pastel type feel... or deep carved feel...

very nice sweet stuff...

many times, i dislike some of mine, due to various parts not being how
clear, etc, that others may do ... i've seen many portraits that are like these pastels, and it encourages me, if mine are not so 'perfect in the eyes or etc, in some way...

they can be soft, light, heavy, shadowy, or however we feel :)
whewww... :) makes me less concerned that i am not progressing, :))


oops, forgot:

here is really neat link... like the feel of the various parts and how they relate...

I have this old print on good paper. Worn, creased slightly. I haven't any recollection of whose it was or how I came to have it,
but I think it belonged to my wife, who was part Yaqui.

I have given this a slight contrast since it's light in tone. It will likely show up better on the screen that way, I hope.

My sister was a renowned artist and art teacher in Phoenix.
Her focus was mixed media photography and alternative processing.

She passed away two weeks ago and yesterday, following her memorial, a reception was held at one of her friend's studio space.

As a teacher she planted the seed and helped countless artists flourish.
As a friend, partner, and family member she inspired.

One of her most enduring projects was titled "WORD" in which she photographed thousands of people mouthing the letters L. O. V. E.

The astounding thing about losing an artist is what they've left behind, a tangible window into who they were.

My sister was a remarkable woman who lived many lives, touched and inspired many others, and loved.
She is gone and will be greatly missed.
Her art lives on.

Here's a small portion of her work from her memorial.

Probably her best known photo, and award winning.
