Pop Art

Posted Jan 2008

Still deciding. Oils or Acrylics. Oils or Acrylics. I just finished another Painted Caricature:

I struggled through with this using Acrylics because I love the bright colors of Acrylics. But the actual experience of using paints that dry so fast causing me to keep putting globs of hard gunky paint in the rag while I spend so much time nervously cleaning the brush which pulls me away from the Painting Zone is it worth it? I e I even tried an Acrylic paint Slow-Drying-Gel this time. Made it a litl better, but no where's near as pleasant to work with as Oils. I'm really an Oil Painter! Maybe they've come out with brighter Oil Paints now - It is 2008 you know. Anyway, I struggled with this picture until the very end. As I finished adding color to the white flowers, my mood finally lifted. Every time I see this painting, I can't help but smile.

And here's a quick picture of the girl's mother:

Sil Lai

Posted Nov 2007

I took the night off last night. I went with my friend Paulette Elkind (a fabulous make-up artist) to a lecture by a new author, Sil Lai Abrams. She was introducing her new book "No More Drama". I took notes around my constant doodling. Here's a picture of Sil Lai:

Sure we had heard similar ideas before - things like practice love, humility, and charity. But SilLai felt a need to spend her time really focusing on that. She had a good way with words. And she was speaking/writing with real integrity. Life gets so complicated. Sil Lai's simplified process of starting with The Truth of any situation, and then going on to Acceptance Action Commitment Focus and Faith - We walked out feeling empowered and happy.
