LOVE!


I did that alternate kind of painting today...ceiling, trim & walls! I also tested out the sumi ink stick that Brooks Hickerson gave to me. (Love!) I want to try it within a painting like he does. What about you...did you have a lovable Valentine's Day?

I like your sketch! I've never heard of a sumi ink stick. Looks like it would be fun to work with.

John Lennon was so lovely. What a gift he was to us. Thanks for the video today.

Hey! come over and paint my house! Never cared for Yoko, but somehow she seems mandatory in that vid.
Sumi ink drawing is COOL.

I am so loving seeing what you do with a minimal and deft application of lines, Celeste. Gosh, I just wish I could watch you paint. Since I can be obtuse at times, I suspect I'd be more awed than actually learn something but still. It would be wonderful!! Love those old doors in your house too. What color did you paint the dining room?

Love the blue & pink!(no pun intended)
I may be doing some wall painting soon myself.
Hard to believe John Lennon has been gone over 30 years. What a talent.
Yoko was his woman, I respect that!
