The Eclipse.... and inspiration...

Of course there needs to be a little art about the eclipse.  Whimsy came out today...


I wanted the boys (Bugsy and Knuckles...my cats) to pose with eclipse glasses.  They would not agree to that, so ...when it doubt, revert to a cartoon pal. Hope you get a good view if you are so inclined.

Art Quote of the Day

If you wish to make certain your painting will succeed, a minimum of three things must come from you -- and only you. The first thing is knowing why you ant to paint your subject,  the second is an analytical grasp of what you see, and the third is the skill to control the process of painting. 
                                                                                       ~ Richard Schmid ... Alla Prima II ~

Have a great day... and be safe in the exposure of your eyes to the eclipse.

Flower Conference

Flower Conference by Lou Belcher
SOLD
Finished this painting yesterday morning and sold it in the afternoon... That's what's called a GOOD DAY.  This one is 24" x 30" x 1.5" on gallery wrapped canvas.  As you can see the flowers seem to be communicating to one another.  Not sure that is true, but I certainly enjoyed painting this one.
