Let’s have some fun!

Let's have some fun!

And get to know each other.

If you own a Farnsworth, take a photograph of it.

Or have someone else take a photograph of it, showing where and how it is displayed in your home or office, and even better, with you in the piicture.

Add a few words about:

  • how you came to own it
  • what you get out of it
  • and, if you have more than one, which is your favorite, and why.

What's that? You say you don't own a Farnsworth? That's OK.

Just share with us what you would own if you did own one.

How would you display it?

What do you anticipate it would do for you?

Come on, send your image(s) and a few words to me in an email, and I will start featuring them here. If enough of you respond, we might make a book together.

The first ten responders will win a small ink and watercolor sketch!

Speaking of books, the Kachinas final proof is here, and the final book should be available very soon. Stay tuned.

The photo at the top of this post is a group of the early daily paintings on this blog, arranged by Thea in our former Santa Fe residence.

ESCARAMUZA CHARRA / Daily Painting #1267

Escaramuzza Charra / Painted on my iPad Air / ArtRage3

Today I decided it was time t try the watercolor brush in ArtRage. I also thought it would be fun to see what I could in terms of emulating my “confections” painting style. So, on the train from Jerez de la Frontera to Sevilla, I started today's painting. There was a bit of a problem with the fine print in the car rental I was planning on, so I hoofed on into town and landed myself a small, bu very nice, clean room for less than I've been paying in Jerez. Did i little grocery shopping, then took a walk down to the neighborhood I stayed in twelve years ago, and had dinner in my favorite Sevilla Chinese restaurant, where I continued working on the painting. Then I walked back to the hotel where I put on the finishing touches, and am now writing this post.

I just checked Google Maps, and it looks like I've walked a little over five miles today, dragging my baggage, among other things. No wonder I'm tired. I think I'll hit the hay and let you search this blog for descriptions of both Escaramuza and Confections if you're interested.

By the way my little “watercolor” didn't turn out too bad, in my humble opinion. Not too bad for a first try, anyway. What do you think?

¡Hasta mañana!

 

FLAMENCO JEREZ / Daily Painting #1264

Flamenco Jerez / Painted on my iPad Air / ArtRage3

Nah, Still no Flamenco here, due to all the Semana Santa activities. This is done from a photograph I took on my first visit to Jerez de la Frontera, back in 2001. I'm just getting a little anxious, I suppose.

I tried going for a colored inks effect. I'm not too happy with the result. I like Flamenco SMA from a couple of days ago much more than this one. So much still to learn with even this one app.

I'm really excited about the ability to maintain the original sketch with all its searching and wild, uncontrolled exploration of the subject along with the more careful, refined paint application. My early thinking and preliminary work has always been obliterated by the finished work. Except in watercolor, that is, in which, until recently, i did no preliminary drawing just went directly into the painting with no guide lines at all. Then there were the confections. Loose, spirited line drawings with touches of watercolor. Here the original line work remained, however these were more sketches than developed works.

I can hardly wait to see what develops tomorrow.

¡Hasta mañana!
