in Progress



oil on canvas, 20 x 16 inches

Every time I see those bright-green-tipped clamps in one of these photos, I cringe. I've been meaning to get some stuff to dunk them in to turn them black. Come to mention it, I think I'll hop on my bike right now and get some. Bye.

update at 4:30pm: I couldn't find any Dip & Grip at the two stores nearby - I guess I'll look another day elsewhere.
update on July 16, 2008: The bright-green tips slide right off. Since I'm not that worried about the clamps marring anything, that's what the tips will do - slide off and into the trash - bye.

I never would have noticed the greengrip. Instead, I focused on the wonderful horn growing out of your painting on the upper left. It could be a steaming maggot though. . .

Hee-hee . . . that's a sweet potato in front of the vase of water I eventually put it in to grow it. I did three sweet potato paintings, thinking I'd paint its growth. But it took forever . . . and then I lost interest.

If you click "previous post" - once - and then twice - you can see all 3 sweet potatoes . . . in the link above, that is.

All those little pieces seemed so lifeless (no offense to the late mouse) as if they have given up to gravity.

No offense taken.

I hear what you're saying, though. There was a lot happening in my life right then. I look back and see a need for a lot of control in those little pieces.

The first one is still my favorite.

Live/paint and learn - thanks for being a big part of that.
