Wow, it was Black Hawaii for a couple hours this morning here in Hauula.  Thunder, lightning, wind, and tropical downpour.  Scary, but beautiful day from about  9AM on.

I was watching that system the past few days. The hurricane center stopped reporting on it, but it looked like the worst of it would pass you on the north. The Pacific is getting quite busy lately. Keep safe. That goes for you too Miss Liz!
Cheers, Val

Red cellophane, what a great idea Stoney!

I was doing B&W photocopy, which work but not convenient especially with oil paintings.

Seeing the value of the different hues in a painting is still very difficult for me.  I am always off with the mid tones, and often more than by 1 or 2 steps.  But I know the answer, more practice and stay relaxed... it will come.
Cheers, Annie

Aloha from Blue Hawaii- HI to all my PB friends!


I like 2 words VAL mentioned-
   Play- Enjoy and have fun with art;
   Values- Values are everything!


 :hug:  ~Liz

And "Child's Play isn't".  Think of all the things a child has to do when learning to play baseball or cricket.

Much is learned through play.

And everyone wants it to come *now*.  On 'Well' I've been coming up on the limitations of my vision.  Others say I got the tone gradations which works for me.

Getting, and giving, feedback and problem solving in class really speeds things up.  People here are fantastic too in assisting each other.

What do you mean "we want it NOW"?   We want it YESTERDAY!!!

You are right we have grown so impatient in this modern word.  We don't seem to be able to wait for anything... a reply to a text, instand commection of the computer to the internet, immediate solution to a problem, instand effect of a medicine... amazing that we still wait 9 months for a baby to be born.

Knowing you have some visual challenges only makes your painting the more beautiful.  I wish it will hang in, not a mere gallery, but a major museum one day.  And we will all cheer for you  :clap:
Cheers, Annie

Yeah, 'yesterday' is still too late for some folks. :D

We all have our challenges and limitations.  All one can do is their best.  My hope, on being so open on things, is that what I write somehow, somewhere, is of some use to someone.

We derive great benefit from your detailed painting commentaries O0, plus a great deal of entertainment  ;D

Even better if the stuff brings a smile or a chuckle.  My view is people generally don't smile, chuckle, or laugh enough.

There are times I'll sit back and consider things and am surprised by it all.  Was it really me that lived in Scotland for a year and a half, been inside Mt. Vesuvius and walked the streets of Pompeii and Venice, Italy?  All that, and more, in four years.

That I'm painting now would have blown the mind of my younger self as would have my USAF time tearing into aircraft electronics.  The electronics thing and a degree was a goal set in the 8th grade, probably '68.  Broke into electronics in '82 and degree in '87.

Heck, I flunked 'stick figures' in school; and now I'm painting "Lady at the Well'.

My view is everyone has astonishing tales to tell.

Can't argue with any of that Stoney. People don't laugh enough, and that's a shame.

I agree also that everyone has hidden talents and tales to tell. Perfect example is your artistic journey, and hey, look at me.... I can paint funny frogs in pastel! Astounding!!!  :2funny:

Amazing sometimes what a person finds they can do.  :)

Lots of what you write is valued and useful.  Likely much more than you think...
