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.

hey there say, jefe... wow, she had a real studio going on!... wow...

thank you for the deep share... oh my...

was very sad to hear this news... :(


ps for mouse:
yep--i do squares just like that one, there, but that
certain square was already half done, ;)
so i just added to the work...
(some of my recent things had a few from justthemaids mom, to add on)
since i had so much to do, and not enough time, on those occasions--it was
a very special way to make the quilt extra special)...


say, i simply love those WILD mice at your place...
i had some 'mice shots' to add on here, but i been going through
odd critter adventure here (not mine) so we had our OWN wild
time here...


oh my... still missing the taco, but slowly getting back in sync...
:)



say, ONE of 'pesky' mice is actually in my SILVERWARE draw, :))
IT MUST be wondering where all it's buddies are, hee hee...


will take a few pics of it and its adventures, hope very soon, by monday... :))


wow, and thanks for displaying my FAVORITE oak tree pic!!!!
ahh the noble oak... kind of a mama oak, really, everywhere i saw them
in calif, they seemed to be 'watching over the lands'... :)
saw a special siting of an owl, among some wonderful oaks, as well...

An original piece by Betsy Bret Harte ... The hands of her mother.
A gift, and a cherished piece hanging in my living room.

The most amazing aspect of the reception were the amt of students who attended. They openly shared how Betsy changed their lives...their love and respect for her.

I also noticed a lot of people found solace in the art studio where Betsy's art was on display... simply hanging out, taking it all in, or engaging in deep and meaningful conversations with strangers with a shared connection.
Simply beautiful.

Thank you for sharing your photos, Jef. ~
