Jo, the exhibit and the way it was hung--juxtaposed--made it more real. I do look forward to more, many more, pictures.

You also described being new in a place after a depressingly bad experience and the lonliness of not knowing anyone. A crowd of friends one doesn't know can be unbearably painful. Glad you've made a home and career there. I know you are a valuable addition to the committee.

OK, at this point I have a batch of scannings of remarkably poor photos of some of my work (there are a lot more, unscanned,and not all in the same style). I'm going to go ahead and try to at least post them as links here, for the meantime. The colors are bleached or just plain off, that being in the photoprocessing, and the definition is poor - you're all going to think I paint in a big blur. Well, sometimes, but not that much!

I am having trouble getting the bigger size to show up in the preview.
I may have to reduce them some more when I put them on the site I use to transfer. But.. I'll wait til tomorrow to tackle that. (there are about 15 of them)

Every picture is wonderful. I bet seeing them on canvas is an experience to treasure.

Eight of those are sold, Joanne, but I am not posting them, y'know, for that reason. I don't really think it is all that smart to buy a painting without standing in front of it.

Wonderful work, Osso. Seeing them so small, the magnificence of your compositions becomes obvious. I do hope you keep trying to post them for us.

It helps a lot to use the Able2Know toolbar to zoom in on the pics.

Oh my oh my oh my!!

I went to littlek's site and looked at 'em big.

Just lovely.

I especially like French Lavender, I think.

The colors are stupendous. (I can tell, I adjust a bit...)

I'd love to have a closer look, too, if that's OK. Smile

Osso, I saw your paintings on K's website. To me they are either very romantic or mysterious places. Do you drink while painting? If you do please what it is you drink.

Ah, I can't get the toolbar for some reason, I don't have the whatever to open it. Have to look into that one of these days.

Colors, eek. The Lough Inagh one comes out brownish in the photo and it isn't, at least not very. And the Heather in the Pyrenees - all that blond part is somewhat more pink or peach in reality, although not really a right at you pink.

I always use oil, could never get used to acrylics. They are very glaze-y, thin layers, not thick.

Well, of the ones that are sold, it is hard to take new pictures, but this is all a lesson to strive harder to get representative photos with good definition and keep them in some good order.

I just got a digital camera, ahem, I ordered it through amazon via a2k, and purposely picked one that saves pictures 'raw', which I gather means that they don't lose definition like jpegs do with each rendition. (Not that I know what I am talking about, but it sounded good).

Oh, yeah, I drink. I am prone to like rum and milk with lots of ice cubes. Wine is good too...

I don't like to drink too much though - I tried that once years ago, back in my long time apartment in Westwood. I think I poured a gin and tonic and then another one and I can't bear to think I would actually drink a third - not that I don't like alcohol but I now hate gin - and I had music on and was drawing my little heart out and finally toddled off to bed. I think that was the night that I was trying to link drawing action directly with music sounds and rhythms.

Went out to my work table the next morning and threw all that trash out!
