Liz your writing leads one along a wonderful and inspiring journey. I look forward to your insights, it is interesting to hear from other artists how art opens one up to a new way of truly seeing the world around us. It really is magic.  :heeha:       :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

 :thankyou:  To all of you who are reading my posts. This week I wrote about how I was a co-founder of a school in 1978,  the first of 2 posts on Recycle, Reduce and Reuse.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Oh! Liz, how I thoroughly enjoyed reading your post .... I was transported into another dimension, I was that engrossed. You write so well and captivate the reader's sole attention. I have come away from your post feeling so very happy and uplifted by how and what God has done in your life and the lives of others, whom you have touched.  Thank you for writing such an interesting post and wishing you much success with your future endeavours and good works.

Liz,

The link led me to something written in a foreign language.  Ateliernachtegaal’s Blog  Written in 2008

Can someone else try clicking on Liz's link and see what you get?

aloha

Mea, I had no problem this morning with Liz's link but when I tried it this afternoon after reading your post, I too, got something to do with Atelier paints and night owl's blog (I think is what the translation might be).  Weird. I think we should bring it to Nolan and Liz's attention.

OK, Patricia.  I will send this to Liz and Nolan.

My theory, though, is that the link should have said "artwithaloha."

 :blush: You're right, MAL, I forget myself and write 'love'; did it at least a few times, but usually caught myself.  It really is a new blogsite for me, too.  ~Liz

Hi Everyone,
So who's the Paint Basket member who gave a group of seniors recycled cardboard to do their art work?
See 'The Frugal Artist- Using Recycled Cardboard' http://artwithaloha.wordpress.com

How wonderful Liz! You are such a mentor for the arts.  :smitten:   So nice of you to share your gifts. One just never knows what little thing will bring joy to others. Thank you for that.  :1hug:

Cheers, Val

Some very famous artists have painted on cardboard. A few hundred years later art conservators curse them because cardboard is not usually acid free and is hard to conserve. Tough! If my art on cardboard is valuable enough to conserve in 200 years, then let the art conservators earn their money. In the meantime, paint on anything that you can apply paint to. Often I suspect that all this bumpf about using acid free materials so that the art work will last a few hundred years is more to benefit the shops that sell art supplies than the artist, or even the art buyer. If someone buys your painting cheaply, the chances are it will be turfed when they change the colour scheme of the room. Haven't you heard... it's a throw-away economy now-a-days? Good on you Liz! AND that other person who gives her senior citizens students cardboard to paint on!

Hi Everyone,
I just posted photos of my Spokane Washington trip.  It didn’t snow while I was there, but we went to Mt. Spokane State Park and threw a few snow balls. You are welcome to use any of the photos.  There’s a couple with a covered bridge.  Except for the evergreens most of the trees have shed their leaves and are spindly looking.


I also wrote a few remarks about the benefits of using one’s own photos to study and learn how to draw and paint (better) trees, shadows, reflections, etc.

LINLEY, you are right about the permanence of some art materials.  I have paintings still hanging on my walls in oil painting that still look vibrant in their frames.  Maybe they made paints better 50 years ago? They were not even varnished and even the custom frames are fine quality which I could not afford today.  Back then 16x20 frames could be gotten for $35-45 and today cost upwards of $200 from the framing shop.


It’s almost December.  I hope we all can find time for art with the holiday season upon us.
~Liz

Lovely photos Liz, glad you enjoyed your adventure.  I love the old covered bridges, not many left.

How did you like the snow?
Cheers, Val

Hi VAL,
I liked it for the time we spent there on the mountain.  It was 30 degrees.  I still wonder what seeing a snow fall would be like.  I think I watch too much Hallmark movies!  I imagine that winter with snow must make a nice Christmas.  :) ~Liz


MAL,
I started a couple rough sketches of the covered bridge, one with side view and the other where you can see out the other end and I’m standing in front of it. I want to paint it, but I have to practice drawing it first or I can go to Office Depot and get a copy that will fit my canvas and trace the bugger.  What would you do?  ::) ~Liz
