DEMO FOR FALC (Fine Arts League of Cupertino)



I had a great time painting for FALC last night. Here is the finished painting along with a slide show of images from Nava and one from Jane F. Everything is reversed because they were actually photographing the overhead mirror image. I wanted to finish the painting so I spent about an hour before dinner working on it. While I was painting, I realized how much I love working on this surface. I was lifting back and repainting, changing some of the colors and the paint just flows so effortlessly. My new little squirrel brush is ideal on the Tyvek. I thought I was finished with it but noticed one little spot I need to correct. Looking at it in the computer has the same benefit as viewing the painting from a distance.

My husband and my son surprised me with an early Chanukah present. They bought me an ipod Touch and couldn't wait for the holiday to arrive to give it to me! I am very excited. It has my calendar, address book, e-mail plus actual music! Also I loaded some photos. I think I can actually work from them while I am out. The viewing screen is pretty large! It is an amazing little gadget.

Myrna,

I've been following your blog for many months, and was thrilled to finally see your work in action at the FALC demo. The demo was awesome, and so is the painting.

Thanks for sharing it all with us!

Wow! Great painting. Thanks to Nava and Jane for capturing pictures for you to share with all of us.

Also, I loved your value sketches on yesterdays blog.

This is AWESOME!! As soon as I saw it, I thought it looked like tyvek (I've only painted on this fun support once). How fun to have a workshop using tyvek. Glad you're not lurking on EDM anymore ;)
