Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... May 2018

Becca, I really enjoy them both, that white on white is so tricky getting the depth and difference in texture and quality between the flowers and the background there. Butterfly is very direct, the paint strokes are almost an abstract painting in their own right, very nice indeed.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... May 2018

Delo and Becca, thanks for adding more lovely flowers to look at - love them!

We had a bit of bad weather last night, tornado warnings, and hail, and a huge gush of rain, so My one little rose in the garden was shredded into little petals when I checked it today, so I'm loving your flowers even more than usual!

Nancy- thanks for the compliment. I enjoyed seeing the flowers you posted, especially the 3 on the left, beautiful execution I hope your roses make a comeback after the storm!

Beautiful flowers, Delo and Becca as well! I love that butterfly

Becca, I'm used to it, since I was born quite a few decades ago right here in the middle of it. The first tornado I saw was when my dad was standing on the steps to the basement, and I begged him to pick me up so I could see it. I was about five then, and the tornado had started a fire at Tinker Air Force Base. Probably the wickedest thing I've ever seen, and I'm still glad my dad let me see it.

Paul, thank you and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I realize that Nancy...was just a rhetorical statement...I know you have history.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... May 2018

Good Morning Oilycats!!!

Sorry for my absence. I subscribed to both this thread and woye, but am not getting email alerts for either, that anyone has posted. I guess if it keeps on not working, I will report it.

Anyway, busy busy busy this week with 'stuff', hoping to paint today. I need to finish that commission, because I have a nocturne I am wild to get strated on.

Took a 10 mile hike yesterday. Didn't intend to, but we had a bit of bad information at the start, which made our destination further away, and harder to find. It isn't on the map, so we had to rely on info we found online.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... May 2018

Good afternoon everyone! Nearly finished my owl painting that I have been sharing on the WoYE, and did a little portrait study in one of my sketchbooks on a page that I prepared with some Casein. Interesting note, less than a day and the surface is tacky, and with my medium (to which I have marble dust added) the impastos are soft and able to be brushed out smoother so I won't have to resort to sanding it later. Just brushed it smooth with a soft bristle brush a few minutes ago. Absolutely fantastic for me, means that when it's dry I can hop right into glazing.

Marcia, I could do for a nice hike, been too long since I have gotten outdoors for more than an hour or so (to get a very small plein air in before being blown away by gusting winds).

Nancy, I remember seeing a tornado when I was a kid as well. One of the most amazing and awe inspiring sights I can recall.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... May 2018

Delo, look forward to seeing your paintings...glad you are happy with your medium...always good when we find something that works well for us...

aside from tornados in the air have seen maybe none on the ground...but did have about 4 or 5 in a cluster from the group that hit Greensburg KS not so long ago and took it out, went on to travel many miles from there which included a pass about 2 miles from me and was without power for 2 weeks...Another more intimate episode was when one came through my yard....only about 100 feet from my house...was newly developed and not yet completely on the ground , but took out my bradford pear and 1/2 a cottonwood, which it impaled in the shed roof....went on several miles where when toppling a large tree killed two people...to me they were just a sign of spring...there were many....
