1969, just out of the army and back to work. Used to just pound out the watercolors, slap a matt on them, cheap frame and plain glass … call it good. This old steam engine is from a set of 3 that Mary kept for our home. I didn't discover until too late that so much damage had been done. All of the leaching from cheap matts and tape have taken a toll on these paintings. I may try doing new versions and or having them professionally photographed and than digitally corrected and make a small series of digital prints. Moral of the story, take care of your paintings and preserve them properly.
It appears that ole Mr. Clever has mistakenly
removed all of my followers. I have no clue how
I did that. No offense everyone, I loved having you.
Now I have to figure out how to get back the space that
allows followers. Wish me luck!
This is the painting I left alone for a bit.
I was unsure of the direction plus some of the technical
problems created by this kind of contrast. I'm still not
sure if I'm through so I thought I would go ahead and post
I started a new painting several days ago and started to ponder, what am I doing?
So, rather than answer that question I've stayed totally away from it. Evenings
find me doodling in the sketch book. They are some times memories but mostly
images plucked from the air. They're very small and take on somewhat of a graphic
look (2 dimensional). Relates back to days of designing, logos, cartoons, basket
designs for China, ideas for plush toys, bla, bla, bla! Just give me a soft pencil and
a pad of tracing paper ... I was in heaven. More later.
