LONG STORY

The computer is pretty much okay now, but there's lots to adjust - and find. Plus, I can't use Adobe Photoshop yet. Bummer.

Here's another painting created quite a few years ago of one of my favorite animals. She was quite a beauty that day at the Colorado Rocky Mountain Zoo. While painting her, I used lots of teal, turquoise, blue, red, coral, purple, and yellows, but no browns, for the fur.

I do hope to post fresh work soon, along with the paintings from the YUPO workshop last month. It's good to have a working computer again:-D

Who needs browns when you can paint skin like that!? Wonderfully done!

What a beautiful painting - glowing with colour - no doubt from your expert use of all those combinations!

Sorry about the Computer. I bought a new one last year and bumped up the hard drive and memory size this time round. Thanks for taking the trouble to go down to the library... I would not have missed viewing this tall gorgeous friendly giraffe for the worlds.

Hope you'll soon be back posting regular for your fans including this avid one who loves your work.

Seems I mixed up text in your two latest posts and you do have a working computer again. ... and it was the plant painting you posted at the library. Ah well, now you know what age does to you - I think its called 'addled brain'! Still love the giraffe.

She is beautiful and your "browns" are just great.

Gosh, it's great to be back and so nice of you to let me know I was missed. Still can't adjjust sizes of photos - maybe my photoshop disc is in the lockbox at the bank. Until I find it, I'll have to post older paintings. Just hope I don't have to buy a new one. Groan.
