Japanese Artist

Posted Nov 2008

Oh My! What a surprise. First I was surprised with a visit by some Artists from Japan. Then I was surprised that a super-bright-neon-orange scanned as white in my HP PhotoSmart C4180 scanner. We are living in miraculous times!

Really, I had cut out the face/body, and glued it onto bright orange oaktag - Um, if we were talking a value-scale of 10, with 10 being the lightest and 1 being the darkest, this bright orange would have a value of, um, 7. That would certainly show up on this Computer. But it came out white! Probably because of how very Bright it is.

 

 

And here's the same picture that I played with another way:

 

 

Arigato!

Whirlwind

Posted Nov 2008

It's a Whirlwind ~ and That's okay.

So much on my mind - the email problem that I wrote about yesterday just compounds my current personal dramas. Setting boundaries on the homefront and really missing, I mean Really missing my friends, and here I go to work. For me that means thrown into Your Parties!

Where I drop it all, all that stuff I just wrote about. And I'm inundated with beautiful wiggly kids and happy grown-ups who think that pictures pop out as soon as they say the word. Okay. Whew. And today I was even in terrible lighting conditions. Didn't think of taking out my own clip-on lights because the room was not dark. It's just that the bright light was Directly Overhead. Made the top of everyone's Nose light up, their eyes fade into shadow.... I wonder if catering halls even concern themselves with how well their clients will look in the lighting. Next time, I'll remember to make things better for myself.

So there I was today. At a 1-year-old's Christening. Couldn't think - just smiled and drew and Enjoyed. No matter what.

Now that I'm back in the Studio, I'm glad to see that I have Nineteen photos on my phone. That's Nineteen pictures I drew in Two Hours - And most of those were even doubles - two people on a page. With all these crazies going on, I'm still so thrilled to see what good stuff comes out. I'll show you some of the pictures:

Enrichment

Posted Nov 2008

Making my LIFE better. Spending time with other Artists who I love. Not just drawing for money, but Creating in front of people who understand what it is to Create something from nothing - The times we get together - they're the best times in my life.

Here are some pictures that I drew of some other Artists. I'll try to find photos of the Artists to post a few days from now:

Important - Please Read

Me - Upset. That's so unusual.

But I might have a problem with my account at visualdust@gmail.com

That's where I get ALL my email. That's the account that's been advertised for years. That's the account where friends clients and agents contact me.

Just in case, you should have another way to contact me. Phone or Post Office - still the same. But now YOU CAN ALSO REACH ME AT visualsparkles@yahoo.com NO! SEE BELOW!

-----

That's what I wrote last night. Now I've been working on making all sorts of changes - Opened a NEW ACCOUNT, got to change the address all over my websites, tell all my agents and friends, and hope that previous clients will be able to find me.

THE NEW ADDRESS THAT I PLAN ON USING NOW IS: optidust@gmail.com optidust@gmail.com optidust@gmail.com

Please try it. Let me know that we're still connected - me and my viewers.
