Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.......2020

Happy 2020 to us all..!!! .. lots of creative inspiration to everyone...

and hope to pick up where I left off...as we are leaving a whole decade, noted it with a few digital collages...some of my art over 10 years, places I have been, and concerts I have seen....not esp the highlights only as many of my photos prior to 2014 are not yet on my Mac, still transferring those, so some places and events are left out...but still in my heart..( and soon on my Mac!)

Happy New Year Everybody!!!

Becca, Mosc, Floating Dove, and all, wishing you the best in the New Year and New Decade.

Becca, what nice memories.
Mosc, is that a fire inside of a circle of snowballs???
Floating Dove, lovely paintings, indeed dramatic.

Doesn't "2020" sound funny?

For me, 2019 went out with a bang, as I sold four out of five paintings I submitted to a small works holiday exhibit. I was walking on air!

Happy painting to all!

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.......2020

Annie, happy painting back to you & Pearl as a studio assistant! How is she doing? Yes your right, 2020 sounds and looks funny. Congratulations for the sales of 2019. I typically had none so in my point of view that is huge amount! Am very happy for you! Wishing you many sales in 2020! The snowballs are in my garden and photo taken several winters ago because we haven't had any snow yet. The ground is dark. There's a candle inside those snowballs.
Becca, nice collections! I got inspired to do one too after seeing yours but haven't been able to finish yet because there are so many paintings where to select. Besides I don't think I'll be able to finish it because there are just too any things happening atm.
Floating, wonderful collection!

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.......2020

"2020" is worse than you may think. Many companies (mine, partners) give names to products or projects as last two digits of the year, plus two digits for month or quarter of the planned finish. So 2004 can be "April 2020" or "4th quarter 2020". So, you constantly get confused by phrases like "we'll do it in 2004". (Oh... was I 15 years younger in 2004 and now I am not getting the latest business language trends?)

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.......2020

Annie, thank you they are great memories and more memories and paintings to come....and congrats on the sales!!!....great way to wrap up a year and enter a new one...

Mosc, I thought that was just a imitation snow globe...didn't realize it was real...very cool...

as for my collage, just selected works I had photos available for and threw it together....not esp all favs or special, just wanted to document something...good thing I didn't think about it too much! hope you decide to finish yours!

Ilya, interesting and confusing...something needs to be adjusted to make the references more definitive...

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.......2020

Received news yesterday this collage was accepted to a show in Florida...is mostly for fun, fundraiser for a new gallery opening, the theme for the show was 99 bottles of beer on the wall and requirement was to have at least on bottle of draft beer visible...not my best work, and only had this one to submit...but was fun...from my photos

This snowball lantern photo actually came out of camera as you see it, I didn't do any photo shop'ing or anything. Looked ok as it came out so decided to keep it. Except added the text before posting it here.

Another photo: this is our outfit for the night walks this Christmas. It's cold so that why she wears the dress. The red hat has turned out very useful too (not only a decoration): to warm her ears with this hat. They can get cold when windy.
