A photo of the above painting in progress.
Here, the background was approached differently.
It was applied with a 3" roller, then over painted with thick pigment.
I really like today's quote. As time hurries on, it seems as though I have to run ever faster and harder to catch that speeding bus! It's even a recurring dream I've had since childhood. I think all my marathon chasing is starting to pay off though.
I'll be doing a drawing and painting demonstration at the
Hammonton Arts Center
during the town's
Third Thursday Event
on September 19th and also have
Watercolor On Yupo Workshop
scheduled there for the fall. I'll post more details here as soon as the dates are confirmed.
I'm planning on going up to NYC next week to do my dry run for my
grand opening demonstration
. I'll meet with Marc from
and then go to check out the
Store where I'll be demonstrating
Painting on Yupo Paper
on August 22nd.
This set up is working out well. I'm using the laptop to view lessons online
and the desktop computer to follow along and do the work in Dreamweaver.
The online website course from
is going well and I'm more than half way through it. I've started to organize 15+ years of online / website files and feel pretty confident that it will soon all start to come together. It feels good to finally be making some headway in that department.
Jerry and I are busier than ever taking care of the businesses, our place, the horses, the cats, the wildlife and the hummingbirds. We are going through about a gallon and a half of nectar every day now. I guess we have used about 40 lbs. or more of sugar so far this season. It's kind of hard to calculate though, because the sneaky sugar industry changed from 5lb. bags to 4lb. bags this year. I guess they thought nobody would notice! That reminds me, I'd better go and check those hummingbird feeders. I forgot to fill them at lunch time and I'm sure they are empty.
I hope your summer is going well and you have found a way to stay cool!
Tell us what you've been up to!
Thanks for stopping by!
