Picassa Collage

These are older works from last year
Picassa has a fun option to make collages but-doesn't let chose where to colle!I would have prefered handling the spots myself
Seems I'm playing a lot more than painting lately
I need to be inspired==any hints ? Posted by Picasa

This photo is bad
I need a better digital camera,my hand is not steady enough for no flash pics are always blurry
i like this painting ( i see the right eye looks a liyttle off,easy to fix)
i think it just may be my provincial competition entree

It will be my next subject I'm starting today
I have no large canvases,but a smaller one will be a good test for a larger
I plan on doing a gold spray underpainting Posted by Picasa

Not very pretty

I get a lot of ideas for paintings, as you may have noticed.Paintings I never create
Here are images of myself with the frustration of all the questions that being an artist bring me
they may never be painted by me
Edvard Munch did it so well

My minds eye sees 36x35 over gold done softly with rag application Posted by Picasa

My livingroom today

I've begun the painting of sonny's crowd
Here are three works at different stages. I notice to be slowing down some in production ,but it is quite comfortable slow and steady.I feel more certain about my choices and where I'm headed
Selfdoubt is the artist enemy
I think our confidence levels fluctuate Then become evident in the work Recently I have become aware of this factor not only in art,but also in all areas of living Posted by Picasa

Sonny's photo

My Australian fashion photogragher friend(link) took this photo I have been looking at it for months ,now I do think Sonny is ok with me using his pics as long as I give him proper credit
I will also tell you his life is so amazing travel ,women,food,sights,nice weather,beaches(beyond anyones wildest dreams)
I'm a stay at home mom and have adventures of another sort(which is ok too)
I'm very happy.
ok back to the photo the more I look at it the more I see potential for abstraction and beautiful color harmonie
It has been altered here to my liking and will be my next project (if thats ok with you Sonny ;) Posted by Picasa
