Lightbulb WDE Feb 12, 2010: IMAGES HERE!!!

I will be posting 16 images ...

Please wait until all are uploaded before commenting - thank you.

You have 30 minutes to make your choice and choose your materials - you may use any medium.

For the next two hours, just go for it……then STOP!, scan or photograph your work and post it in your own new thread with your title, beginning with WDE, plus date, plus title.

When you introduce your work, please add a description of size, medium, support (paper, canvas etc) and time taken.
If your work is digital, we'd appreciate a description of whether it's freehand drawing/painting, manipulated image or done using the filters available in some programmes - you could also say which programme you've used.
All are acceptable but we'd like to know the "hows, whys and wherefores"!!

Use WIP for any work in progress at the 2 hour mark, and MI for multiple images if other works are to be added before the following Monday.

NB. To avoid forum flooding, please put all of your work during the weekend, for the current WDE, into a single thread: multiple threads will be merged!
From the following TUESDAY, you may open a new thread for later work.

You have the whole week to participate - until the next WDE starts (usually Friday). If you finish a piece after that time, we now run a 'Catch-up' thread in the forum each month where you can post any WDE not completed in its allotted week .... it's a sticky near the top of the forum page.

After posting your contribution, please view others’ entries and comment and encourage when you can. Unless requested, please refrain from critiquing.

1) Burrowing Owl - taken at the High Desert Museum in Bend, Oregon (hi res version)

2) Cliff Hanging Trees - near Cascade Locks, Oregon (hi res version)

3) Fruit of the Vine - vineyard near Jacksonville, Oregon (hi res version)

4) Jelly Fish - Oregon Coast Aquarium, Newport, Oregon (hi res version)

Re: WDE Feb 12, 2010: IMAGES HERE!!!

shhh.... sneaking a better version of the invite rose in...

from the Portland Test Rose Garden, Portland Oregon (hi res version)

there they all are!!! couldn't get the image uploader to work, so they are all here as attachments... sorry about that.

all of these were taken in Oregon, or en route to Oregon, on a two week vacation in August of 2009.

The link to the hi res gallery is here. If you look really hard, you might find the rest of the vacation photo-documented there...

have fun... and get painting!!!!

Mike these are a wonderful selection of images, thank you for hosting. Now I'll have to go and look over downloads but it is midnite here (I'm tired) and WC server is down in the morning for maintenance so how is the 30 minute for choosing images being handled.

Ey Mike, I really hate to be hosting the WDE's after you. Where in the world will I look for photos as magnificent as yours???

I'm really impressed! I still have some of your photos from the last time that I promised myself I would paint.

Re: WDE Feb 12, 2010: IMAGES HERE!!!

o mikey, these are magnificent...... the beaches blow my mind... the dunes especiallly when i realized the scope and that those little 'things' down there were people... ... and the sunset from your room... o, the colors are luscious! SIL is coming in the morning to take my computer, so i deliberately got up now to do my printout... and it was SOOO worth it! thank you...

Kati... the maintenance is from 1 til 2 AM ... you're already tired, let's hope it's all done and finished by the time you get back on here!!

That just means the time for getting your images chosen and ready to start (cropped, printed out, etc.) doesn't count in the 2-hour art-making period.
