Off to Little Rock today to see Ortho about hubby's broken wrist, and back tomorrow for a follow up with the Neurosurgeon. I just hope the weather is nice both days.

I have finally started a big project on two canvas' for a family member. I have put it off for long enough. I haven't ever drawn on canvas, so we will see how this goes. :surprise:

Awesome. That's a pretty spectacular photo.

And that's great news Leighan! I've only painted on canvas a few times, but It was definitely enjoyable. I guess I don't do it often because I'm concerned that if I mess up, I'll ruin the canvas and have to buy a new one.
I'm sorry about your husband, though :( Prayers that he'll get better soon.

I'm back. We had a great vacation. Today was a bit stressful trying to catch up with everything. Sure hope I can start on some art tomorrow.

I'm not even going to try to catch up with all the posts, I'll just start fresh from now.

Sorry to hear about your husband's wrist LeighAnn. Is the neurosurgeon appointment for your headaches or is it also for your husband? Sending healing thoughts.

Welcome back Terry, did you have a great cruise?

I have been getting so many pics of so many birds! Some I have never seen before and some I have just never photographed before. Haven't been drawing much, really want to,... just having difficulty landing on a subject. With all my new pictures I have nothing to draw? :biggrin:

Safe and successful trips for you Leighann.

Great angle Cricket!

Have a blessed day!

TerryCurley

Thanks Susan. We had a fantastic cruise. It was all about eating and relaxing. I went on the scale this morning and I have gained 6 pounds and my blood glucose has been through the roof. :surprise: So now it's time to get back to reality and on my diet again. :crying:

There was a wonderful art auction on the ship. 35473 The paintings were more gorgeous than I can describe. Way out of my price range.

I have decided I want to try to do more detail paintings, taking my time and not rushing the brush. I wasn't ready to make that commitment before this but now I am. I really want to strive for doing the best I can and forget about getting it done. I'm considering shutting down the flea market display. Since I raised my rates I haven't sold anything there. People go to flea markets for bargains, not good art. I'm putting some of my work on E-bay again.

Everyone have a wonderful day.

I don't like canvas!!! Drawing on canvas is horrible! I'm so used to a smooth surface, and this is driving me nuts.
I'm doing two 11x17 pieces that are somewhat of a mirror image, and just getting the outline down is taking forever. I also discovered, it's not easy to erase on canvas. All lessons learned I guess.
Once I get the outlines finished, I will post a pic.
Right now, I just want to get these pieces done!! :plain:

TerryCurley ...so glad u had a good time. You were missed. :biggrin:

leighann I am looking forward to seeing your results. A new challenge is scary at first, but it is always good to learn new things.

Susan Mulno I used to love to photograph birds. I need to put my bird feeder back up so I can take some new ones.

If the canvas is well primed it's easy to draw on it with graphite or carbon pencil, I've even used pastels for the outline. I put two layers of Gesso on my canvases and sand them down before and after each coating. It makes a world of difference.

Thank you Cricket. I'll skip the Diabetic forum. I belonged to one already on Daily Strength and talking about diabetic issues gets me down real fast. I get all the support I need from my family and doctor. But thank you for the offer.

I also very much like canvas. To be honest, I never really draw out much before I start. Thinking ahead is quite rare for me.
Glad to hear the cruise was so nice, by the way, Terry!


ALSO I am currently watching Peaky Blinders and this series will be the end of me. Expect fan art. Soon. No regrets.

05-03-2016, 11:14 PM
TerryCurley I don't know all that priming stuff. I just bought a package of two canvas' and tried to draw on them with the pencils I sketch with. I wasn't even thinking there might be an issue until I actually started drawing, and by then it was too late. :vs_cry:

Hi all Im pleased we all seem to be having a good time or getting things sorted, hope you're journey goes well leighann and both you and your husband get on OK at your respective appointments. Grandkids are always a good boost to us who have them. I'm really looking forward our holiday were off to a hotel near the airport on Friday then it's off to Cyprus on Saturday, I envisage laying by the pool, lots of cold beers maybe having a massage, sun,sea and something else, hopefully lots of pics for potential drawing/painting.

Susan Mulno
05-04-2016, 09:07 AM
How are the medical issues going Leigh Ann? Hope you two are on the mend/feeling better. I think the texture of the canvas will be a cool effect when you are finished your pieces.

Sounds like fun Ken. Have a splash in the pool for me. Hope you have a great time!

@Cricket, love the idea of a pool full of coffee! :vs_coffee::vs_coffee::vs_coffee: I am having so much fun photographing these birds, I don't know why I didn't start sooner! I will take pics of anything that moves honestly but birds are so available, and I have always been partial to them.

When I told my husband you were going on a cruise Terry, he said you would enjoy the art, they always have amazing art. It is sad that the flea market people don't value true art enough to pay what it is worth. And your art is worth more than they want to pay! Maybe you should consider upgrading to a small gallery?

SuddenLife, don't think I will ever reach a point where I don't need to sketch things out first!

We are getting lots of rain today, of course we have the day off! :vs_smirk: Oh well, we were just going to spend it relaxing anyway! :biggrin:

Have a fantastic day!

James' surgery on his wrist is tomorrow, but I think it will go well. He isn't having much pain.
My back is about the same...I won't see the neurosurgeon until later in the month.
Attached is a pic of my two canvas' with the outline. I used a dark brown Micron pen instead of black. The colors she wants are coral, turquoise and grey. We will see if I can pull this off. My plan is to use markers and watercolor pencils.

Evening!
Just got back from the annual Liberation Festival. A locally 'famous' band played, Mooi Wark, which was really neat, but since this forum is not a big fan of profanity, I won't translate the majority of their tracklist. However, titles like 'Screw rules' and 'Nipples don't lie' should tell you all you need to know. Not very classy, but it's the kind of band that's so enthusiastic it's impossible to really dislike them.

Also gonna scan a lot of anatomy and portrait sketches tomorrow : D

I went skating again yesterday for the first time in weeks after having recovered from a pulled muscle. Two streets away from home, landed on my right knee, left hip/thigh and left elbow, which somehow also caused my shoulder to hurt. (No idea how the fall went. It went way too fast and next thing I knew I ruined a perfectly good shirt, realized my protective gear didn't work as it should have and felt a tad embarrassed)
Today I was very glad I could work from home as walking isn't very pleasant right now. Oddly enough, however; there's no bruise, it's just very sensitive and feels not quite right when walking.

Susan Mulno
05-18-2016, 09:51 PM
Wow, Inge, sounds like a pretty bad fall! Just listen to your body, some injuries can take a couple weeks to fully exhibit themselves.

Nice work Ken!

Some of you will remember last May when I shared the sudden death of our dearest friend's (Rodger and Patty) son, followed six weeks later by the death of Rodger, we just got the news that Patty has passed away. She was diagnosed with cancer about a month after Rodger died. They have one son left, poor guy lost his whole family in one year. Can't imagine how he must be feeling. Send up a prayer for him if you get the chance, I am sure he could use it.

Hope yall have a good night.

That must have been quite a fall Inge, hope your body heals quickly.

SuddenLife

Susan; Yes, that was what I was thinking as well; it just never hurts to be a little cautious after something like this.
And my, that is very sad. That must be absolutely horrible to go through for that son. Very sorry to hear this also means you lost a very good friend. Best wishes to you and everyone involved.

kpnuts; That actually sounds like a pretty neat idea, though to be truly honest, I am not to be trusted with bubble wrap. Ever. I mentally drop ten years in age whenever that stuff's around.

Terry; Thanks, I hope so as well. It really helps that I work from home for this last project, meaning I can afford not moving around too much. It certainly seems to have improved since tuesday, so I hope it turns out to go away without a fuss.

Good Morning Artist friends. I'm being very talkative on the forum this morning. I'm just using it as an excuse not to get out of bed!

I've been down for a long time now and I'm considering going to the doctor to get my happy pills adjusted. :unhappy: I hate doing that, it makes me feel like a looser.

About two months ago I raised my prices at my flea market to a price that is more like what I think they are worth ranging from $20 to $80 depending on size. Well I have not sold one painting since I did that! I think it's because people expect bargains at a flea market and there is no way they want to pay full price for anything.

I put some of my paintings on ebay, but haven't sold anything there either.

I've been really excited about all the sales I've made in the past but they were all at very low prices. My inventory is really low now anyway so I think I'm going to shut down the flea market display and just keep a few for sale online and if they sell fine if not fine too, I have lots of wall space.

Hope you have a good day folks and I hope the forum gets busy again.

Susan Mulno
05-23-2016, 05:04 PM
Sorry to hear you are down Terry, I am praying you have a loooooonnnnnngggggg lasting up in your near future! Needing medication does not make you a loser! It makes you human like the rest of us! We have different dents but we are ALL dented! :biggrin:

As for the flea market, people are fickle. Your paintings are still worth more than you are asking but like everything there are going to be highs and lows. If you don't have a lot of inventory you probably should give up the booth for a while. You may want to set it up again in the fall though, people seem more interested in art in the fall and winter, don't know why? maybe they are trying to set a mood in the "gloomy" months?

Do not loose your enthusiasm over past sales! You should be excited! You have done an amazing job for someone so new to painting.

Praying everyone out there is well! Be blessed!

Yesterday I shut down the display at the flea market and put the paintings that were on display in my house. It looks nice to have paintings around the house again.

I'm going to work on my street scene today. You all have a great day.

Been there terry, you are not a loser, I got so down I tried suicide, I'm not a loser neither are you, I'm not on medication now (well not for that anyway) it took a long time to come off the pills (some people never do) that dosent make you a loser in the same way someone with a broken arm is not a loser or someone with downs syndrome is not a loser. People come in all shapes and varietys physically and mentally, and we all have something to give, however small or big, don't put yourself down, that will only make you feel worse, keep your chin up girl, I think you're great, so does your family, as for your art no artist makes real money till their dead, and that's only because there's now a limited supply, we all think your art is great on here so just listen to us, ignore the heathens at the flea markets and as for eBay I put some models on there that the maritime museum wanted and they went for 3.71 and 3.79 so that is no judge of how good your work is.

Not much time for art these days. With my new RV, thanks for putting that bug in my ear Susan Mulno, fixing it up and camping and yard work and everything else that goes along with the good weather I haven't had any time for painting. I did a little while I was camping this weekend. I started a painting and then invited the other campers in my party to add a few of their own strokes to it. That was fun and I think I'll make it a regular part of every camping trip. I'll post a photo when I get a chance.

I'm going to complain here for a bit. Aight? Aight. What with my obsession for character design it probably doesn't come as a surprise; but I like roleplaying games a lot. You know, the kind where you more or less write a story with a few others, but you only control your own character and therefore only part of the plot. Great fun, lots of cool plottwist and room for creativity and all that jazz.
So I was writing on some forum that had a pretty neat concept. Person I wrote with was busy, all fine and dandy, but due to that I myself didn't exactly have much to do, right? Well, I come back there to find that it's nearly empty. All gone. Character I worked on, stories I worked on; gone. Admin's own stuff was still there, though, of course.

Now, I know; just the internet, just a story, nothing to get worked up about. But damnit, I put effort into that stuff. I don't work on a story unless I want to make the best thing I'm capable of making. So having that just tossed aside like that makes me rather pissy. Bonus points for the fact that the Admin was all kind words, nicknames and flowery speech last time we spoke.

So yeah. That. Needed to get that off my chest. Hope you guys are having a good day, though ^^

Yeah, sorry for the rant :') Just really needed to blow off some steam. A short fuse isn't always the best thing.

Well, I did feel better after ranting a little :')

meli; I did. Turned out that thankfully she did save the character sheet, but the rest of the stuff I'd worked out was still gone.
