New painting - pansies

It is another picture perfect day here in central NY. Big deal, you say? We have so few of these around here that it is a big deal.

For some reason I signed up for golf lessons. I learned that I am doing everything wrong and that it really is hard to teach an old dog new tricks! Once I tried swinging like I was told to I had muscles hurting that I didn't know I had.

Anyhoo, above is a new painting (OSWOA 4 X 6) It is a response to a photo challenge in the OSWOA group on Ebay. I chose this photo because I loved the colors and it reminded me of chintz. I call it 'Dusties Pansies' since it was her photo. BTW it is a watercolor on 140 lb. watercolor paper. I will be lising it shortly on ebay. My Ebay art link is on the left.

I have to run. I need to drop by the zoo on my way to golf to drop off a painting. This weekend is the annual 'Wine in the Wilderness' festival and they are having an art show for the first time.
Take Care.

YouTube video

Yesterday I took a crack at Window Movie maker. It is so easy to use. If I can do it, anyone can. If you have been avoiding You Tube, give it a try.

I made this video in a couple of hours and I'm sure that the next one will be easier. It highlights some of my art to a soundtrack of Warren Zevon. Warren was taken much too soon. I ordered his biography written by his ex from Amazon. It sounds very interesting.


Please check out my video and make a comment so I know you were there.


What this is all about.

I am finally jumping in feet first and giving blogging a try. I plan to post musings, useful info, my latest artwork, my latest Cafepress designs using my artwork and whatever else might be of interest. Bear with me as I get wet and acclimated to doing this.

I have a long hill near my home that I walk up on occasion. This winter there was a great old chevy truck parked in a driveway on the hill. It never moved. Once it warmed up some, I took my camera along to snap a pic. It is the subject of my latest painting...above. It is an OSWOA which is an Original Small Works of Art. They must be 4 X 6 (or vice versa) and fit in a standard photo sleeve. They are very affordable and collectible. It is on sale on Ebay right now under my Ebay ID lynner3. I also sell collectibles so check it out!

I am a proud Cafepress shop owner as well. Check out my shop at: http://www.cafepress.com/artgiftsbylmr

I use my drawings and paintings to create cute designs for t-shirts and other fun stuff. I need to learn more about graphic art so I can create more digital designs. I don't know how people do it. I can draw them by hand, but they don't look as professional as some do.

I guess that is an introduction of sorts. I'll update soon with more news!
