Hi everybody,I apologize for not posting for so long but it seems I've been addicted to F/B and all the worldwide groups and neglecting my longtime friends. I have become fascinated with Yupo synthetic paper and the Cosmos.I think I've exhausted my ideas about bear situations at least for now except for space bears on occasion. I'm attaching some of my recent work on YUPO most 5"x7" and all water media.

Jen, your little painting with the lollypop trees(I think the trees look perfect like this) has very welcoming warm colors.

Karen, Love your bike painting it is coming along great. The waves are fabulous, like Geri mentioned and the bike looks like lots of work to me, great details.

Fred, nice to see your Yupo works again.

My favorite is the pink green abstract second from bottom. Looks like you had alot of fun without us.

C&C always welcome

Claudia

Fred, sooooo good to see you and the bears back here you have been missed. It is easy to get caught up in other sites as I am on several too but this is our home ground. You have made some interesting effects on the Yopo paper. I love the one of the moon bears and of course the bear fishing. The silver abstract with it's organic curves is lovely too.beautiful flowing colours in all of them. Yes I can see how this would be a fun and tactile surface to paint on. Hope you will pop in more often.

The other egg tempera I started this vacation was on my list for a very looooong time. I'm so glad I got it started. It's my niece holding a chicken.

C&C always welcome

Claudia, she will love it. You are doing a wonderful job. This is a difficult pose!   I like the chicken's attitude too! Great job on the flowing hair.

Karen, your painting of the beach scene is really turning out well - the bike is fantastic!

Fred, nice to see you posting here.  I do follow your art on Facebook too.  Like Claudia, I esp. like your bright painting with the green, yellows & pinks.  I'd frame this one.

Claudia, this is a great depiction of your niece & red rooster!  Her expression is precious!

Comments and critiques are welcome.

Hello Claudia ...glad to see you on the egg tempera ....agree about the hair, good skin tones too..

Take another look at the right eye facing viewer...the iris/pupil should be curved.
