Fred..I love all of your new paintings! The have such a story, you're so creative!

Welcome Sanna. I reallly like your photos. Did you make the hearts and are they clay or better yet...cookies?

Jim...California Dreaming is so pretty! You've done her face so gentle and such a lovely woman/fairy!

 

Marsha..I like the waterlily photos you've posted. I've started the photo that Kim posted but I'm just in the process of mixing the greens I want to use.

I made a light box yesterday out of a cardboard box and some drawing paper. It's 12x16 inc. and is light weight enough for me to move around easy. My goal this year is  to focus on my drawing as much as my painting. I'd like to have a few nice still life paintings done by the end of this year.  I will post a picture of my light box. the light I was using for the photo is just the light on my kitchen table.

Sam:  Thank you  I did find the double ended ones.   just ordered them.   nice to know about the op and pastel.. thanks

Artista / Sanaa:   very nice photos.  

Jim:   I have so many critters in the back yard I think I saw the fairy there enticing my african bull frogs last summer....and eating our green  grapes  tee hee...  very nice painting and colors

Kim:   I will post a couple of pics I found of my three big guys (koi) playing in the falls.   about once a day they hang out under the falls and come out of the water to feel the water hitting their back,  its a trip to watch them push each other over so each can have a turn.... they have their own personalities as well as the frogs who have been in the yard for 10 years, I got them as poly wogs.  they are in hybernation right now. 

Fred:  is that Curiosity or Opportunity,  can you believe after 10 years they are still working.... regarding your cabin in the snow,  I liked it better with the bear....

Cath:   Interesting light box.   It will be great to see some of the pictures you will get using it.  

Myself: as I said in the challenge post,  I'm having art block.... hmmmmm

Fred both paintings are nice.  I believe the one with the bear is the best because of the great contrast it grabs your attention and draws you into the picture.

Catherine I can see where your setup can be very helpful in studying shadows.

I think that when people talk about a light box it is a box with lights in it with frosted glass over them.  It is used to look at slides and negatives by photographers or tracing the finished drawing onto good paper after you do your rough sketches with all the erasers.  It is like what you see doctors on TV but X-rays on so they can see them.  I may be wrong but I think I have my terminology right.

Geri I have to let you know that you are in-correct and correct at the same time.   yes you have have a light box for slide viewing an or tracing etc   BUT  a light box Term is also used for Still life Photography

More information for the Giottos ST 120, 19.7" x 19.7" x 19.7" Portable Soft Light Box for Still Life Photography

I used the wrong term as what I built is a "still life box"not a light box. I don't know why I said light box. The  instructions to build the still life box were in the book I just got a couple of weeks ago called Understanding Values by Ken Goldman. This is as far as I got on the salt shaker before I lost the natural light yesterday. This cold front has got it's grip on me and is making me lazy so I wrote at the top of this drawing the words EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. to remind me to draw something  every day. The paper was the Strathmore drawing paper I got from Cragislist and the actual salt shaker drawing is 6x2 inches.
