Quickie Face


i was experimenting with this Chinese paper (book) on calligraphy. i have always loved these characters and find them totally beautiful. This was very quickly done especially when i noticed that i had not painted a layer of medium to protect the paper which is very fragile....made a couple holes...these characters are like rubons , showing quite a bit of relief. i love this paper and i intend to do more like this one but i will prepare my paper before hand!

Super et tout à fait différente, un air altier et et ces caractères qui sont des petits chefs d'oeuvre à eux seuls, tu vas à tout allure maintenant pour mon plus grand bonheur !

tu vois, pas besoin de lécher, pourlécher, allécher, etc etc, quand tu vas vite c'est tout aussi beau que d'habitude. C'est la classe. De quoi est-ce fait? Pastels?

Oui, Zikette, moi je trouvais qu'elle faisait un peu peur....

I am so happy you stopped by today, and I can't thank you enough for your kind comments on my art and my paying profession (nursing). I won't lie to you, it is back breaking work sometimes and when people like you come along and say thanks it means so so much.

I like your art very much too, You have such a way with earthy color...my favorite. I need to work on toning down my color...I'm so new at art I tend to squish it straight out of the tube and go.

Thanks again!

Hi there, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I love those pods and paint them quite often.

I'm wondering if you are the person what was at the Jesse Reno workshop in ABQ a couple of years ago.

My day job is near Los Ranchos, at about 4th and Montano. So yes we are very near one another.

I've been checking out your art and see so many interesting and intriguing creations. Love you work.

I'll be back to visit often. Meanwhile it is a cold and stormy day here, so I'll be in the studio.

Paula, yes, I did take that workshop and I remember a Paula but cannot put a face on the name:)
Indeed, I live on Rio Grande between El Pueblo and Ranchitos!So close!!

Paula S In New Mexico said...

Actually there were two Paula's at that workshop! HA!

I work at 1730 Montano in the old Furr's building. Yep, close by!

Nice to have found your blog.
