DAY 19 Noise

Noise
I have noticed, now that we live out of the hard core suburbia, how much we get quiet.  I mean actual quiet, no kids, no dogs, not cars, not motorcycles, no sirens, etc. etc.  How many waves, noise carrying waves, go through our bodies every day.   Phone, radio, tv, fiber optics, microwave, etc. etc.   Can that really be good for us?

Anyway, I never know what I am going to get and this was a pretty quick one since I had a big time work day, for me.   But I got some really clean windows - am really ready for Fall, wish the temperature could understand how ready I really am for Fall!!.

Thanks much for stopping by.

Ahhh... how I love the quiet. But in the quiet, there's so much to hear.. crickets, hummingbird wing, breezes in the leaves...

Actually my little sleuth, did you miss the man in yellow pajamas lying in bed with his patio slider open to his patio? 😝😊😊

Hate to admit but it was a kind of fix after thought
lots of activity here with a small square of quiet - that would be my favorite place - lol

Cantilever

Well the challenge is over now, but I can't get past all the abstract things floating in my mind.  Who knew I could abstracts, and some came out pretty well.  Yesterday I just finished a fill the crack/match the stain project on my porch floor and had paint left over, so of course rather than waste it I had to put it on a piece of paper.  Once that was down then I had to add a few more colors and before you know it.....   Tried a different thing with adding the brush work to the palette knife.
The name of this piece, Cantilever, is probably more about the composition type than an actual cantilever, but I couldn't come up with another title at the moment.  So you go with what you got.  Yep this is my homemade mat, the paper I used was the middle I cut out, but again it comes in pretty handy to make it look a little more polished for the pic.
Thanks for all the support of people just looking, but got to say that my buds are the best besties.  You guys rock with the great commen…

Day 29 30 Day Challenge Berries dendritic print

Oh yeah, we are close, I can almost see the end in sight.  DAY 29  Just going to have to do one more day and then it is all over but the shouting and resuming normal things.  I think I might do the end collage this time as it may tell me something, especially if I overlay the views/reactions on top of it.  The house is jumping for joy as it will actually get cleaned - well, maybe, let's not get too excited.  I also have been working on a commission and am about half way completed.  The challenge actually has worked to an advantage as I haven't been stressing over it too much.  Fighting with it I have, but think I might be back under control somewhat now.  Since it is a gift I can't show it until April.

Actually I have learned so much during this challenge and somehow they always free me up to play and explore.  I have also found a new site for pastels and, since I am studying seriously with them again, I might actually sign up to take the video courses.  Not the same as …

Eric Gorges graphite portrait

Today is the next lesson and before I go another direction I wanted to try one more time to see if this softer technique could do a male.  I realized that I really don't paint many men, don't know why.  So I decided to wrap a little man, fan art and all the facial hair, etc into one person, Eric Gorges.   Only thing I didn't get was all his tattoos.  Eric hosts and produces one of my favorite shows, Craftsman Legacy, where he visits various craftsmen/artists.  I don't know how/where he finds these folks but, the 30 minutes show feels like 5 minutes.  He also is a master craftsman, creating handmade motorcycles - previous job was wall street which he walked away from as he says, "it almost broke him".
I think this technique works regardless of whether you want sharper/softer lines.  I tried my working a couple more hours after I thought it was finished, so I think even the camera is catching more shadows, but graphite still doesn't photo all that well.
