"Very nice Deb. Love the hair and the expression and whatever that stuff is around her shoulders.
I think it's best for portraits (particularly of attractive women) to keep the skin surface as smooth as possible. There seem to be a lot of…"
Deb, Michael puts a lot of art online through FASO, who does his website; I don't even have a website and need to get off the stick and get one and start marketing my stuff. Indolence is hard to break out of. There are so many good artists around that it is easy to think that you cannot measure up, but if you don't market your work, you never will succeed. Stu
Deb, one of these days, I am going to sign up for a workshop with Jennifer McChristian; she's been regularly giving workshops in Monterrey at Asilomar as well as in Southern California. I love the loose expressionistic style she exhibits, especially in her cityscapes. Stu
Deb, thank you for your comment to me on Jim Haycock's painting. You were one of my first friends on this site and have been incredibly helpful to me and many others. I really enjoy helping other artists to improve their work. I am on a quest to meet in person other artists on this site, any chance that I get. I was hoping to meet Susie Gregory later this week when I am in Indianapolis for a family wedding, but I have not heard back from her. I did meet Ann Turner a year ago and met Michael Severin just 2 months ago and even went out painting with him. I would love to meet you at some time, but have no plans for any trips to North Carolina at this time. I do always enjoy my online conversations with you as well as reading your comments to other artists. And I am in awe of your work. Stu
Thank you Deb for the friend invite, and the nice comments, nice to meet you. I am looking at your painting scroll by and they are magnificent!!! .... your paintings show that you have quite an understanding of trees and their character .. you must put a lot of time into that? I'm looking at some of your gnarled old tree trunks .. whew!!! Yes, this painting group is fun and very informative. The group has made some nice suggestions on a few of my paintings that have really helped!!!
