Aloha from Blue Hawaii,
 :thankyou: To Nolan who helped me through a glitch with Log In onto MY CLASSES.  Now I can review classes and order more lessons to keep learning and improving my art work!  :clap:


Unlike my style and more like PB friend Pat of Daytona Beach, FL, I have spent time off for the past few weeks and on reworking two paintings that looked like they needed major help.  I decided to quit volcano paintings which added too much drama in my life.  So I scraped and wiped off paint over and over my waterfall painting which was supposed to have rocks, but the rocks kept getting rounder and looked like boulders instead; the other was the misty mountains which I added more color in the sky and a few misty clouds. I’ll write about my experiences on my art blogsite http://artwithaloha.wordpress.com


What I wanted to share was that two granddaughters are getting married within a year; the first is a ranch style wedding in the country next Sat., so I’ve been busy creating party table favors.  The second adult child is getting married next summer and working on wedding details for a wedding and reception at a private estate.  So exciting!  Last month my other half and I celebrated our 56th anniversary and the memories are still so fresh in my mind.  Two old farts! My husband said if he knew grandchildren would be such a joy, he would have had THEM first! :2funny: We have 7 from 3 children.


Hopefully in a week or two I hope I will decide on what to draw or paint.  Any ideas or suggestions for me?   :hug: ~Liz

Liz, yes, either major or minor, it's very easy to go "off" on shapes, extending their size, color etc. without even realizing it till quite some time has passed.Congratulations Liz! My son just told us a week ago we will be Grandparents also.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: WOW, PAT!!!  How exciting for you and Maria!!!  I guarantee you your lives won’t ever be the same again!!!  A grandbaby is the best gift from God to fill your days with joy and take your mind off yourself.  I mean this in a good way of course!  You’ll see, Pat!!!


My husband can (half)listen to so much about my art and that’s about all he can take, but the grandkids are his greatest interest and joy and he never tires of tracking them down and seeing the latest they’re up to!   :)

Due in March Liz.  I am already imagining how I'll feel. It makes me feel so fragile about life how we have no control over it at all! That's a sad feeling, but it's full of deep love.
