edm #180: favorite color

this is a tube of oil paint... just a tiny smidge of paint left...
use the squisher thing to get every possible bit -- the cadmiums are $$$


edm #178 something red

used actual Revlon Red nail polish for the red...
weird to paint toenails on paper vs real toes

yart sale

it was a sale of art in the front yard = yart
these are various things I stared at while sitting there

my front yard is very exposed to a busy street:
good for yard sales, not good for hanging out...
so this was the first time I noticed how much of a list the power poles have...
I'm glad they're leaning to the west and that they're on the other side of the street!

rocks and baby pine, ilyllwild

this is on the campus of Idyllwild Arts Academy,
just outside the Gallery
there were some great shadow patterns as well...
beyond my capabilities in ink

pine tree, idyllwild

Spent last weekend up in Idyllwild...
Went to a couple of Painting's Edge* lectures and studied the trees (my next exhibition).
There's something about Idyllwild -- it makes me very happy and creative...
Maybe the altitude (6000 ft) - or the clean air...
