Artists Statement

I paint as often and as much as I can. I take classes when I can afford it, but the money usually goes to buy more art supplies. This blog is to share the results with you! I am a Work in Progress.

Back again, formats keep changing!

All at once scanning a picture has become an ordeal. HP Devices can't find the HP scanner. The scanner can't find the computer, but when I Print it finds it, no problem. Unless I go through the System Preferences and choose the Printer/Scan and go through a guessing game of which will work this time and how to get it into iPhoto once I finally get it into Photosmart. Sheesh. And now the format for blogspot has changed. Oh give me patience and persistence!

Light & Color, 5X8 Pen & Ink
(Heavy sigh of relief) I was able to actually find the two scans I managed and upload them. Maybe it's time for a little workshop in how this new system works. This is a Pen and Ink from a little challenge by Light & Color (or vice-versa) found through David Lobenberg's blog. An interesting challenge, too bad it isn't plein air.

Peony, 5X8
Here is the other item I was able to upload. a close up of a peony. I wish I could grow these! We don't have the right climate, I'd have to refrigerate the plane for a a certain number of weeks. Can you imagine trying to extract the butter by reaching around a peony?

OK, I need a nap, and the laptop battery is running low. And it's time for lunch! Then I'll visit all my favorite blogs again and see what everybody else has been doing!
Love to all.
