nice enough this morning to get out the door just as the sun went in, but that counts too.
Golden Qor watercolor and Golden high flow acrylics. I hope they dry shiny. On Arches 140lb paper.
Sunday edition shows more drying and nice shiny leaves of acrylic paint.
Tomorrow is the second and last chance for you to see the Cazenovia Art Trail! I am having a real nice time with some artists I know and meeting some new ones. I am hurting a little less so am psyched for tomorrow.
One more peek
A little digital painting like one I did paint in watercolor. Only available online at a site not yet determined to use.
Good night, all.
Sorry for reblog FB link did not work
I had a great time yesterday at the Cazenovia Art Trail, Cazenovia, NY.
We had a roomful of all kinds of painters. Put our stuff all around the beautiful community room. the Art Trail folk had done a great job with maps, locations, pics of our work.
I learned that small sells very well in this economy. sold a bunch of watercolor postcards in little bags. well, they are water colors…
Here’s one, and thanks to friends who drove from far away just to see me. Gee whiz….
this one still needs work, but it’s colorful!
Sorry for repost. FB Link did not work
this is a little Golden QoR watercolor on Yupo. QoR is the most saturated pigment I have ever used. On Yupo, which is plastic paper, color goes wild. This one will be on Redbubble and Café Press, along with a bunch of others.
I’ll have cards, mugs, all kinds of stuff available. They print, they ship. You get art in the mail. I hope everyone will be patient until next week. Until then, today’s treat.
See you Saturday in Cazenovia, NY library, and thanks for reading.
Hi there. I have been struggling with pain and getting ready for the Cazenovia Art Trail, starting this Saturday, 4 October and next, October 11 at the library in Cazenovia, NY.
Thankfully, my galoot husband Dana has organized my studio by kind. Then he pulled all the paintings from all over the place onto our studio table. We sorted by size, and then I made three piles from each size: finished, more work needed, and paint over.
All we have to do is bag em and tag em. Most of my watercolors are painted from edge to edge meaning they sometimes get mounted. Whew.
Painting is the easy part!
Hot, wet outside. The dehumidifier in my studio has not stopped. Inside again today.
Skeezer napping in the winter sun.
I had a painting which had good bones, but the colors made our eyes bounce. So, Procreate app, I digitally painted with transparent greens. That is exactly what I then did on my watercolor. Stay tuned.
I’ll post that tomorrow
I have been trying to paint the green all ’round us, but all the colors yell
Back in 2005, I think, my friend for life, Karen flew me to New Mexico for a visit to Santa Fe. I was enchanted. This is a postcard-size painting which ensued.
A little later: caffeinated, medicated, in less pain, thanks. And thanks for reading my rant. I always get over it, usually without so much yapping.
And I did not make another art opening. Fucking pain. Anyway it’s here, for sale, 30 by 22 inches. Two months, coffee, watercolor, other fun stuff, charcoal. Please buy? I am whining. Will stop now. Cheers everyone.
Here’s one done in North Carolina
coming to the Art Store
This is one painting for the Caffeine exhibit at the Art Store, Erie Blvd, Syracuse, NY. Reception 6 June 14 at the store. Please come buy It?

up here in the woods, I am thinking of strawberries
Tomorrow I deliver two paintings with the subject caffeine to The Art Store in Syracuse. You’ll have visit there for the reception Friday at 6:00 pm and see what we all did with the theme.
The Art Store–no I don’t work there–is the best one in Syracuse. It’s on Erie Boulevard downtown. See you there.
The one with the long white braid.
I am happy to have new followers today!
So I decided to explain me a bit.
searching for humor
career art, write, edit, design
long pause in which I was raped four times and then tried alcohol therapy after the auto accident which disabled me in 1982. I was rear-ended in my truck by a fuel delivery truck. Alcohol is addictive and a depressant. That took awhile to sink in, with therapy.
think 16 tons
so now I paint, try to be not depressed, get regular pain treatment
and my husband became completely disabled in a work accident
so now we are two caregivers taking care of each other. It ain’t easy
But we’re still here
And a painting by me. (it’s for sale; can I say that?)
since a lot of folks commented on coffee, snow
here’s a little one. I had spilled coffee on a scrap and drew fellow artist Tom McCobb on it with Inktense pencil. I am taking it to caffeine show next month at The Art Store, Syracuse, NY, US.
thanks for all the compliments
first ACEO Inktense pencils and ink
ACEOs are tiny paintings, also called artists’s trading cards. I tried a couple in today’s wonderful sun. They are blurry because my hands were shaking. Looking for comments?
Here they are, atop each other. Ink, Inktense pencils.
This is my wonderful late Treeing Walker Coonhound. He really got into life and ice cream.
I just found this writer, thanks to Mark Bialczak, the gonna-be-famous blogger. Wonderful insight.
Caution: Instability Ahead. I suffer too. This blog gives real help
