en che por


These three words are slang for En quelque part which means somewhere in french I decided to title my new painting this. People in this area will understand and those who do not will find it interesting I'm sure. Our language( Acadian Slang) is a contraversial( i'm not sure i even spelled this right) issue
Facsinating ,but improper.
The painting is in it's first stage and is 30x30 inches oil on canvas I will post it in sessions done.

This has a very nice feel the way it is. I would love to see this painting when you finish AND would like to see a second version fimished out abstractly.

Hi Amber

Like the beginings of this very much. I like your style and your eye.

En quelque - controversial.

"bitch'n chops" is slang around here for "great technique."

Ed (me too)I'd like to do an abstract version of this Thanks for the comment

Argos thanks for telling me what chops meant you said that in a previous post and I did not catch the meaning what is your favorite sujet d'art?

Yes, Kathy Hooper is a well known artist from the Hampton area, just up the road from me actually.I absolutely love her works.She's one of my favorite artists. She does pottery and painting in a very whimsical style.That's great you'll have her as judge for the competition.She runs Hooper Studios, www.artathooperstudios.com
