on WetCanvas from a weekend drawing event (WDE-we call it)
The first pic is my initial painting. I had decided to have him hiding
under a scarf, but wanted to have some kind of outline for the scarf,
so I blocked in the body form first, then covered it!!
Very cliché I know....but I think its cute!!
So here's.....Peek A Boo Poofy.........heh heh
Above just adding some more Body Lines to a series I started way back in Apr and May 07.
Just felt like working with some Vine Charcoal. Working with different Ideas.
Think these would look good together say six or so in a line or a square.
Each is 11x8 on black pastel paper
The last one below - more glazes, doing under layer of highlights, and defining shapes of apples, so they Pop!! Almost done. Few more glazes and colors should do it.
The Second - Started to add more detail and glazes, and shadows
The first one, just blocking in the basic colors and shapes. Oh....
the size is 12 x 12 on 2 inch gallery wrapped canvas. You have the option of framing or not with this kind of canvas. Using Acrylics.
Will let this dry for now.
What do you think, comments welcome.:)
True to her word, jafabrit has posted three of her self portraits, she has done in the past, which I think are wonderful, thought provoking examples of her Artistic talent. Go have a look. Thank you Corrine.
If anyone else has a self portrait to show, drop a line here and we will go and have a look see. It's always so interesting to see what others look like, and view themselves.
WHAT AN INCREDIBLE HORSE,
YOU'VE GOT TO SEE THIS............. THE HORSE KNOWS THE BEAT!!! WHAT RHYTHUM!!! IT'S REALLY SOMETHING TO SEE..............
This is from the WEG2006 Freestyle Dressage Final,
WITH ANDREAS HELGSTRAND riding his horse MATINEE.
Had a bit of a scare this week with that cat food recall, as he was on Iams, but the dry food. So the vet says he looks fine, and it's just the wet food they are concerned about.
I have to say I'm terribly disappointed in the help situation that Google has set up for us bloggers. It's like no one exists, there is no one to talk to, they just give you all these pages to read that click to more pages to read and eventually you're back to the first page, and nothing is solved. Just going to the forums is an experience you don't want. Google is really pushing to get everyone converted to their New Blogger, and locked me out in the process. I know there are many more like me, out there. They wanted everyone to have been converted by 2007 and that didn't happen, so they are pushing it now. I didn't convert as I was reading all the stories of other bloggers, and how much trouble they were having. So wanted to wait till the wrinkles were worked out. Now I know the writing is on the wall, I'm going to slowly convert after I copy and save everything on my blog
first. I'll just keep repeating "Change is a good thing, Change is a good thing" and keep my fingers crossed when I switch!!

The blog is called "Jafabrits Art", by a wonderful Ohio Artist who goes by the name Jafabrit.
It's a You Tube video by a British Comedian and I quote how Jafabrit explains it: "Have any of you ever read an unfamiliar word and misunderstood its meaning? Here is an example by the comedian Catherine Tate called "mushroom soup" which I think is just hilarious." And so do I, click here: Catherine Tate
I must admit that just listening to the British accent was a good laugh on it's own. (sorry to all Brits, but you got to admit it's hard to understand!!)
I've been trying to learn the ins and outs of setting up and changing my templates for my blogs.
I've been wanting to do this for months, and change my colors etc. in my blog. So for last few weeks, on and off I've been looking and reading at many different places and sites about how to do this, and how to set up my own website.
I've just scratched the surface, but have achieved some good results, and believe me, if I can do it anyone can. You just have to follow a certain method (to the madness), and never do anything without having backup( I learned that the hard way).
Still haven't changed to the new blogger yet, but have set up another from that and just now learning how to do things with it. When I've got that down, I'll be changing this blog and my other one over.
There are some great places and people out there who will help if you ask. I just started with blogger help, and found that you get more info if you go into the advanced part. also reading the responses on the forums helps.
There is a book out called "Blogging for Dummies" that is great. Takes you step by step. I also found a weblog on Blogger called "Dummies Guide to Blogger" by a gentleman named Peter Chin here: http://bloggerfordummies.blogspot.com/
That I found very very useful, and easy to follow. This site covers the old and new blogger plus he has links there for two other blogs that cover more blogger tips and tricks. Just take your time on his blog to find what you are looking for. He has a lot of very useful information, and explains it very simply with visual help, so much easier to understand. Very worthwhile visit on his blogs. I thank you very much Mr. Chin, I've finally got a grasp of HTML and CSS, and Templates. and right now I'm playing with colors for my blog, and changing the set up. That should keep me busy for a while......... remember......always backup before you change anything!!!
