Hi again A real quickly, Bennie recounts as to how difficult it was to traverse the maze of satellites and space junk when leaving earth and will be more hazardous in the future because the junk tracking program is in jeopardy due to funding or lack thereof, watercolor and ink pens 11x14

FRED I wonder what he would find if he connected the dots? TEE HEE.... I agree about the space junk we are accumulating. like our oceans, land and now space...

C & C Always Welcome
Fred, it is always great to see Bennie and Ruthie. One of the things I love about this painting is that it includes characters we liked but left behind, like the dragons and Crescent and her swain. On the space junk, a terrible problem just waiting for a catastrophic accident to happen ...
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Alex thank you.... I have been doing quite a bit with the digital stuff. here are a few. I have quite a collection now. loving it....
Nealey, I like your tomatoe studies, very nice.
Fred, glad Bennie and Ruthie and family were able to enjoy the welcome home celebration, after all the space junk they had to go thru. Nicely done.
Marsha, your digital art is wonderful. I love the flower and the sky painting and the striped tablecloth is super Do you use photoshop?
C&C always welcome
Thanks to Marshas digital art and Alex, Nealey and Sarah tomato studies i used my morning off to try something new to me ( Digitalart).
Jen C & C's always welcome
Great job Claudia with the digital tomatoe. I don't use photoshop for the art stuff but this is really good.
I use my ipad and an art program I have for journaling called paper 53. I just use it to make quick notes and stuff but then got involved with it. fun
I still like the real deal the best. Notthing can beat real watercolor or pastel or oil or acrylic or in your case encaustic. that you are a master of.....
Marsha ~ Very nice digital works. I esp. like the still life with striped towel! I just looked up paper 53 - what a fun app!!
Fred ~ Keep up the good work. We need more people like you in the world with a social conscience.
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Claudia ` YAAAY more tomatoes! (I love tomatoes) Yours is wonderful! I can'tt believe you never played with digital painting before - great job!!
Thank you Marsha and Nealey for your wonderful comments. I like the real stuff better too and a master in encaustic, well I wish Evenso I never tried digital art, I have to admit that I no my way around in Photoshop and Indesign a bit .
Looked up the app, too. Sounds like fun.
Hi all, My thoughts today
Fred, I enjoy and sympathize with your political statements.
Marsha and Claudia, I've been enjoying your digital art and finally getting the chance to write. I have that Paper app too, and am amazed at what you can do with it, Marsha. I did the squiggly orange trees with it, but mostly it is difficult for me to do anything good with it, because I can't draw, and it makes you do everything yourself. You can't even use a background photo. I do mean to try the real thing in the near future, but particularly right now with moving house and all, it's easier to stick to the iPad. I would be curious to know a bit more about how you did yours, Claudia. What app are you using? I have lately been experimenting with a new app called iColorama. You can do a lot of crazy things with it, including painting back a photo with a wide variety of "brushes" and stamps. I'm still along way from figuring it out, but here's I made with the water brushes.
I did another version using some other brushes including the spatter one with some color jitter.
Hi again, abstract pastel 8x10 yellow mtns.
Wow! A lot going on! Marsha, kudos to you for trying - and being so versatile with - digital art. Your approach is clever and in some cases slyly humorous. My favorite is the still life with the striped cloth. Wow.
Claudia, I like your tomato, and especially the reflection. Even though it is digital, it still bears your imprint.
Shelley Lauren, lovely effects.
Fred, as always, your social commentary is spot on. The yellow mountain painting is beautiful, with lovely details.
