Art & Nature Weekend Snaps

Hey, Friends! Just sharing some photos...

Naturally, I get a lovely headcold Friday afternoon before a beautiful weekend, but I can't complain. I rested and played on the computer.

Okay, below, I did prep a 24x24"canvas with a yellow underpainting, then I wanted to paint over an older piece, so above is an 8x10" oil "Saturday Angel". He's a bit gritty, but I like him.

Since the temps were in the 60s & 70s during this very unwinter-like weekend, I was lured outside and below are some backyard snaps taken with my new Canon EOS Rebel T3:







So, what did YOU do this weekend? Besides watch the SuperBowl, I mean... :-)
That's really nice. Now, go make art.
Love & Laughter,
DJ

Hi DJ!!! I love the angel and that he is a he....the way it should be,, I think. And I LOVE the photo with the shadow against the house!!! Today, I made a blackberry cobbler with bought blackberries, I usually have some on my vine, but not this time of year. AND I doodled with Pilar before church!! We were practicing with a watercolor brush I am now addicted to....a Pentel brush with a water reservoir attached for travel....boy do I love it and so did Pilar!!! We could watercloor sitting on the couch with that and no water mess.....worth a try....amazon carries them, also a Niji....is good!! I just want to encourage you to continue putting that treasured paint on a canvas and I look forward to seeing what it is!!!HUGS AND BIG BLESSINGS TO YOU!!!! SHERRY

I always love a 'gritty' angel,,,I mean they work so hard, why wouldn't they be gritty?
So glad you came by,,,I'd lost you for a while, having moved out of state, and bought a new computer.
Now I need some time to browse through and see what all you've been doing.
Now, get to feeling LOTS better soon!
( I like what Brady's wife said about the loss of the game. She has a valid point)

Image 3 of the bark and whorl - LOVE.
Bigger image of angel please - looks intriguing - love the colours and textures - ethereal and earthy at once.

Yes, your angel shows such movement- you were lucky to get a good pic before s/he left! I had a feeling of connection there. Nice work.

I can't wait to see what you do with that yellow canvas!

I like the grittiness of that angel. I can identify with grit (in more ways than one).

Last weekend? As today is kind of a holiday, still seems like the weekend. I spent the day buying art supplies! What a rush! Finally had some cash for new brushes and real-honest-to-goodness art paints. So many ideas - so little time...
