Mark, so sorry for your accident, try to see this as an opportunity to develop new skills with your left hand, I have heard that is a great brain exercise, to use the non dominant hand...




Becca, it was not meant to be a copy in any way, just an exercise, but the original painting, reproduced on the book I was looking at was Monet 's Poppy field.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... Ongoing 2019

Hi everyone, I've scarce because of being sick and was on antibiotics until just this morning. My energy level felt as if it was below zero. I'm perking up now.

Mark, yes, I guess I should have realized that your process isn't perceptual. That accident sounds awful. I hope you're doing better soon. Are you planning to paint with the left hand? It builds brain cells to have to do things a different way, so at least there's that. Perhaps a brush taped to your cast? j/k Being out of commission because of an accident like that would really p*** me off too, if it happened to me.

Becca, have fun on the trip to the coast. Wow...you may finally get the Canada situation solved. Wonderful! Best wishes!

mosc, I hope to hear more about the residency. You're doing so many interesting things. Muffin looks fierce in the photo, but I've read that when cats halfway open their mouths like that, they're trying to get more information, as they rely on smell and have scent glands in their mouths.

Both too late and too soon for Caturday, I just had to share this with you now:

I won´t write any longer b/C I´m quite busy elsewhere. I only wish everyone a good summer with lots of painting and traveling. Plus take a moment to make a following test:

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... Ongoing 2019

Becca and Mark, thanks for the good health wishes. Yes, I really have been sick a lot for quite a while now. I'm hoping the change in the weather (which still really hasn't happened here yet) will bring a change in my health too.

What's the weather like where you are, Becca? We've had mixed days of rain and sun, but too many completely overcast/rainy days for this time of year. Generally, I think of the 4th of July as the start of summer as that's when it usually changes, but as I write, it's gray and overcast here.

mosc, it looks like we're all art supply addicts. Just in case you lurk, I want you to please know you'll be missed. If you have a moment to tell us how you're doing now and then, that would be great, but best wishes on a successful residency either way.

Mark, I really hope your hand improves soon and that the news from your doctor's visit is good. What an awful thing to have happen! Didn't one of the famous impressionists, when his arthritis increased to such an extent that he couldn't hold a paintbrush, resort to taping a brush to his hand/arm? Was it Manet? Anyway, just a thought...

Since I was sick so often and had other things going on this spring too, I only got tomatoes and some other veggie plants in two days ago! I don't expect much of a harvest at this point, but who knows. Since my expectations are so low, any harvest at all will feel like success.
