Re: Our Chat Room ~ "The Eclectic Cafe"

My butterfly bush is doing quite well this year. Needs trimming but I hate to take off a single bloom. Been an unusually perfect year for weather here, just enough rain, bearably hot, just waiting o see if the remnants of Harvey swing up on us. Hoping the best possible outcomes for our Texas friends today, I have this :

http://www.rothkochapel.org/

on my bucket list, hoping it does not get flooded.

just random thoughtd

Re: Our Chat Room ~ "The Eclectic Cafe"

Thanks Greg! Not sure how much rain we will see in west Texas, but worry about hubby's brother and SIL in Houston, and my cousin there. Other friends are in Corpus.

Re: Our Chat Room ~ "The Eclectic Cafe"

Rick, you look a cool dude in those glasses.

I can't post my butterfly video, I've tried.

It's tired me out trying

I might try one more time next week, I will have to see, but I'm almost over it now which is a shame as it took me four efforts to get a good video in the first place and then I find I can't post it..it sucks, Oh well never mind.

Okay, I couldn't download the butterfly video but I thought you might like to take a look at these three chaps!!

They often sit here during the day, and I took this photo from my balcony.




Another..



last one..

Re: Our Chat Room ~ "The Eclectic Cafe"

Those vultures look so mean!!!!


I am working on my first oil abstract ever! It was something for my son, and he did not like the fist painting, so I decided to make an abstract (Boys, eh, they should just say thank you). He just bought he first home, and I keep telling it looks like an office!


I am struggling with my teal color. I have a turquoise but is too warm. How do I go about muting it, to make it feel cool? Any help appreciated.

Re: Our Chat Room ~ "The Eclectic Cafe"

Annika.... where in the States are you from?

Sunface..good for you! I hope you post it and let us have a look. With regard to your Teal paint, I would probably add a spot of grey or black to mute it.

Re: Our Chat Room ~ "The Eclectic Cafe"

Hi Katie, I was born in NY, then lived in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Colorado, Ohio, London (England), New Mexico, Washington D.C, and I'm now living in Wyoming. This isn't my favorite place but my husband loves it here and I get to travel when I get tired of WY.

Re: Our Chat Room ~ "The Eclectic Cafe"

Those birds have a majestic appeal.
As for your teal, add phthalo or thalo green to your turquoise. The combo I like the best is thalo blue + thalo green.
