remains of the day
Many thanks to Gail Biddle ( as well Shelby, Laurel J, Brock, and Brenda) who supplied me with some great ideas for names. Out of that process, somehow this came to mind...

Board meeting

Yes, it really did look like this. And yes, some very nice waves rolled through between the meetings.. And yes, it does look totally flat between sets. I am so lucky to be able to do what I do.. And as I saw on a sign, "the only good suit is a wetsuit" ...

Un-photogenic art

I was given a 6"x8" piece of plywood coated with homemade gesso and sanded. ( Thanks Jacek!) It is an amazing sensual surface to work on.. (an artist knows the feeling) Used a 4H pencil. Started at the bottom and worked my way up..Then I put a few light color glazes on top of the graphite painting to see what would happen..The medium I used, Neo Megilp (Gamblin)  is shiny and has dried hard. As always experimenting with depth in color.  Unfortunately, it is impossible to photograph accurately.  I think the camera must read "LIGHT!!" and doesn't know what to do.. more likely that I don't.. Did a little adjustment in iphoto, but couldn't duplicate the original.  Interesting project!
