"...an opportunity for the mind to be quiet."


I'd love to have a life like this man....




....the large studio, the huge canvases, the multitude of paint. What fun he must have, right?

I wonder if that's modeling paste he's using to make the texture. He uses so much of it and that stuff is expensive. Maybe it's on his site somewhere: http://www.jonasgerard.com/


I'm still enjoying my Suzi Blu Mixed Media Class. I took a quick pic with my cell phone of a WIP. (Work In Progress) I'm going to work on her more tonight after I post this. I figured it was time to stop neglecting my blogs. Anyway, keep in mind that I haven't edited the photo, so you'll just have to tilt your head to see it. *Laughing* It's up at the top. I haven't figured Blogger out yet. I still don't really remember how I've made some photos appear in the correct spot and some appear at the top. Oh well.....you'll see it either way. Even if the text is separate from the pic.

WOW! His work is beautiful. I love the colors. They're so vibrant.
I'm excited to see the finished product of your WIP. She's so precious. Her little striped stockings are fabulous. :)
BTW, in blogger, you can just cut and paste the picture where you want it using CTRL+X and CTRL+V.... at least, that's how I do it.

I love this guys work. He looks like he has so much fun painting. What a dream it would be to be able to have a studio like that and paint whenever you felt like it. I have always said that I just loose myself when I am painting....my therapy! I would love to learn to be more abstract with my painting. I to be to precise with what I do. That is a learning process, I'm sure.

I love your little girls. They have such personalities! Keep it going...you are doing good.

Love ya Heapes, Bibbi
