dirty cloth shoes and graphited walls

 

the wheels go higher 

than the trees

 

strange when people say 

good day 

or hi to me

 

riding in the sunlight

flashes of day 

beams in night

 

soft sounds of the music

of the music

sounds 

of the ....

 

dirty cloth shoes and graphited walls

little girls in skirts who know it all

 

humid air 

smiles in sight

 

wave 

 

hello and goodbye

to this night

11 shades of grey- hue vs tone

basically HUE is color and TONE is where that falls on the grey scale. 

 

For eXample Navy is a blue HUE and falls further to the right on this grey scale for its TONE than a true Blue.

 

You can see the TONES of an image by "desaturating" it on a computer or in person holding a piece of red glass in front of the image.

Throwback- oil figure study

Just found this figure study in oil from when I was 19. While im not too impressed with my younger self's preservation skills (Crumbled up and off the stretcher bar) I am impressed with the painting skills.

wall of inspiration

My wall of inspiration used to be more of a clutter wall tape exsplosion. Now I just have a few small paintings one from my Goddaughter on the top ( great sense of color and so young!)  and One from Alicia Solo (The Beautiful Bodies)  Also a vintage family photo and tiny miniture oil and gold leaf piece that I did.  To left is an installation I like to call "the buzzer that hasnt worked in 30 years" :)

friday morning ... listening to the black keys

listening to the black keys

blending melodies with paint

on the sound

smelling the sound

hearing the color

love the mixture  

that comes from

another

Progress- oil on linen under painting  

Progress- oil on linen under painting  

the light of trees

 

the smell of trees

the light of leaves

 

alas

the sun shines through

 

awake of days

sleepy stays

 

the triumph 

has passed too
