My Birthday (Dec 26)! I went to Art Discussion Thursday (see what everyone brought HERE).... THEN I had lunch with Dave Gallup (thanks, Dave)....THEN I had a hot chocolate stop at Songbird with Dave Burbach ..THEN we drove over to Movie Madness to pick up some art films. THEN we watched Seraphine and THEN had a piece of my brownie birthday cake. It was phone calls, cards and gifts all day long...THANKS everyone--for the perfect birthday! :)
The light of the Christmas star to you. The warmth of home and hearth to you. The cheer and goodwill of friends to you. The hope of a child-like heart to you. The joy of a thousand angels to you. Merry Christmas!
Painting: Celeste Bergin, Bear, oil on 8x8 canvas panel
I'm just using color notes here for this oil study... and I'm thinking of painting something along these lines on a bigger canvas. The close values in the foreground and the complimentary colors (violet and yellow) show promise!
I wonder who told me about cleaning a glass palette with denatured alcohol. Was it Tim Young? Well, whoever it was...Thank you! It works like magic. Yes, it cuts the cleaning time in half.
Here are mah katz and I taking a cozy siesta on the green chair. (You know...this is a situation that I deem pretty 'bloggable').
