5 Men in a Small Russian Car

Hi guys, just got another email from Eric Rhoads about the upcoming painting convention in Las Vegas (in a round about way), which I thought was very intriguing in terms of the Russian influence on the plein air painting movement...

Richard says "You will find that you can actually crop your image on this website once your image is uploaded: just view your image, hold the mouse over the image and then click on 'Photos Stickers & Effects' in the top right corner of your image, then choose 'Crop'. You can also change the contrast and things like that to get it looking a little closer to your original painting." I have tried to use this cute little thing and when I tried to…

My heart is pounding and singing!

The best thing I have done for myself in many years is to join Richard Robinson's Online Workshop. No more putting it off I am learning how to paint. My attempts at age 73 are kindergarten level but at least I am finally in school and applying paint to canvas. 

 

Thank you Richard and all members who encourage me!. .…

A New Year and a New Beginning

It's been a very tough few years for me and I haven't been either in the mood to paint or unable to even think about doing it. I think if I get back at it I will have a much better frame of mind. I saw a quote yesterday that I posted on my wall:

   "All that we are is the result of what we have thought."

                                       ~Buddah

  I need to do what makes my heart pound! Painting is top on the list if not no. 1.

Painting is an emotional experience, one is not aware of time and place, there is nothing but the magic of the hand and the paint. My goal is to painting an object and not primarily an image. I actually do…
