i don't get it! i used to surf, jump horses, play softball but i can't seem to keep my butt off the floor! lol

when i was a kid, the big thing was to go to the roller rink. i was 13 when i got my first kiss. being the ultimate tomboy, the poor kid ended up with a black eye. (i was a late bloomer)

and that insipid rink music...'bout enough to drive one nuts.

tell ya what lab, i'll just stand here stiff legged and you pull me around.

"One Spam on toast coming up?" Well, not for ME it's not...euwww! Ick! Nope, I'd like a plate of hummus and baba ganoush with a stack of whole wheat pita bread for lunch today--I was Lebanese in a past life

Pat goes to the jukebox and plays the waltzes from the newest Harry Potter movie soundtrack while swooping and gliding around the cafe...bits and morsels of hummus and eggplant flying about in her wake. She ignores the pleas for non-orchestral music.

Sorry I missed the rollerskating party last night. I was mainly an ice skater, but I think I could still do the rollerskate bit...I think

(Tacks up John's shirt to the 'Art' Board, working "title" The working man!!) Now those abs are what I call a "work of art!!" (Happen to be sketching a photo of Charles Dance from "Pascali's Island....it was an awful movie, but he was drop-dead gorgeous in it!!)

Lime coke and string french fries with ketchup and chili/cheeze dog, please!! (Went bowling and bowled horribly, 102 and 109.) Couldn't get the ball to knock down the pins. Sad.

Maybe it was all those "strobe/black lights John has revolving around the lanes????

"roller Premiere?" Not me--not sure who said that. Anyway, you're off the hook, buddie--I'm all sore from sweeping up cat hair. If I tried to skate, I'd crack and fall apart Not as flexible as I used to be, methinks.

A *puppy*!!! Oh, wow...that's like adopting a kid! But they're SO CUTE! And warm and snugglicious I like your dance, too--I did one yesterday before posting to the Monster Thread, but covertly. It was my "Happy Dance" and closely resembles the one that Snoopy used to do in the comics

Your waiting for the roller boys to, um...serve you reminds me of an old writer friend who we took out for a celebratory pizza one night after she finished a novel. Poor thing, she said she typed in the last word and then sat back and waited for the long-anticipated line of dancing boys to enter her room....but they *didn't*?!! I told her it was just a screw-up in Heaven and to have another beer and I was certain they'd appear eventually

I was avoiding the place until 666 rolled past. shew that was a close one but who was the lucky 666 person to post

drum role Sheila!

but ill change the out come for ya.

6 blessings
6 delights
6 times the love

the thing about fairy dust is it makes every one sparkle with their inner light.

I donít have to iron work shirts any more I donít have to wash his dirty shorts no more. I donít have to cook meals he donít come home to eat any more. single so rocks these days.

puppy you just keep your puppy too. I have 3 and soon to only be one. I really am more like pat being a cat person but we always had big dogs and believe me much easier to deal with. little ones are so demanding. but while I have been single I have gotten them back on training and are minding me better and my little boy has almost become a gentlemen. except the rolling in stinky stuff thing he does. but my dog troubles are nothing compared to susi's

She's a rescue puppy from Puerto Rico. She's six months old, housebroken, spayed (etc.), and a beagle/basset mix (a Bagel?) So she'll be really mellow and laid back, not big at all, and good therapy for my Dad... really good since Mom passed. And good for me too, because it'll give me a reason to go on walks and get my butt in gear. I'm really rather excited, I haven't had a dog in years and our family loves them.

Tandra

Chocolate icecream to go please?

Brighid, what a wonderful thing to do! That little dog is just adorable. I'm sure she's going to bring a lot of joy into your life.

John, thank you so much for lifting the curse of the 666 I was really worried there for a minute. But as always, you always take good care of your "coffee klatch" girls.

Miss Patricia, I'll have you know that I'm very proud of all my short term goals. Why I just accomplished one right now. (Opens the bag of mostly blackened popcorn she's rescued from the microwave). And I'm going to bloody well eat too! 'Tis only slightly well done after all...

Susi: LOL Synchronicity! I'm hoping to have more luck with little Tandy than you've had with your babies, I'm thinking that it may also be a "breed" issue, which is why I was looking for a specific breed that would be mellow for my Dad (had I my 'druthers, and were it for just me, I'd have picked a pitbull or Staffordshire terrier, I'm a masochist that way I just love to wake up to destroyed property! )

i used to have an old bassett named max. my dog got run over right before i left for work one day and i was so distraught my boss gave me his bassett. (i suspect he was looking for a home for him at the time). he was old and deaf. wouldn't come when you called but if you clapped your hands, he felt the vibrations and would come. he had one gait...mosey.

Tandy's *adorable*! I love that expression on her face in the photo--sort of like, "A photo?! No one TOLD me there were going to be PHOTOS--!" I love that after her hard life, she's at last landed on her feet (paws) and is going to be spoiled rotten for the rest of her days--that's wonderful

Mmmm--hot fudge on popcorn...with *butter*! YUM!

(Anyone for "Lord of the pants...uh Dance"??) I enjoy Flatley in Riverdance too. But he's American of Irish descent, as Peter O'Toole is English of Irish descent (don't let him fool you, he wasn't born in Ireland, he was born in Leeds.) Can I say I really miss Richard Harris as Dubbledore!!

L. A. B., you can say it, but as much as I *loved* Richard Harris, I *LOVE* Michael Gambon in the Dumbledore role--he's just *intense* and gives one of those many-layered performances that makes me wonder about Dumbledore's past and about how he got to be who he is and what he's really capable of....?! And, wonder of wonders, he's only *7 years older than I am* (!) but he plays an elderly man perfectly.

Just watched a brief cast interview and the young actor who plays Harry (Dan Radcliffe) said of all the cast members, he'd most like to be like Gambon, who he says is "an original", very unconventional, unpredictable and a "free spirit".

And I'd like to have a wee dram of Irish Whisky to celebrate my name saint's day

thought i'd stop in for a coffee after kareoke. they of course were serving green beer. (none for me though-too toxic looking)

there was an indian couple wearing green top hats...too funny.

we also had an 'incident'.....some drunk came over and sat next to me and the kid. seemed harmless but totally obnoxious. kept crowding me. told him twice to back off. then he ran his hand through my hair. said, 'i just had to'. i told him if he touched me again, i'd 'have' to break his hand. didn't faze him.

i'm giving him my best 'look'. then he puts his arm around me and grabs my beer and starts drinking it. i snatched the beer out of his hands and told him to go sit somewhere else.

my kid caught this and was getting riled. i can handle myself and would have but bryn's very protective of me and told the guy twice to leave. he didn't, so.......i'm afraid before i could see it coming, he pushed the guy over in his chair. i immediately jumped up and told the kid to park it. a couple of friends calmed bryn down. i told mike, the cook, to just get the guy out of our face and it'd be cool.

i HATE confrontation. and i feel bryn was excessive in his reaction. the guy's gal friend came over, we discussed what happened. she apologized for his actions, i apologized for the kids and they left.

full moon too i guess.

and tomorrow the kid gets the lecture on how mom is quite capable of handling herself.

(Wish St. Patty would leave the snakes alone, and oust the boarish drunks.)

One caesar salad please, and a large caramel macchiatto please.

Decided to do the background on an "oil painting" starting it up ready for warmer days. It is fairly warm outside (at least until the sprinkles started) so I was able to get the board painted a bit. Gonna do some dancing native children with some Southern Utah background with them. Will see how it goes. Takes time. Gotta have it done by August.

Keep yer "dukes" up, Susi, don't want you to get hurt!!

Forgot to say before, susi, I hate confrontations too--even the snippy, snotty little ones--and the big obnoxious drunken ones the most of all, since it's not like you can just appeal to their reason

At least Bryn's protective instincts are intact, even if his impulse control is a wee bit impaired. How nice to see a son defend his Mum, though, in these days of zero gallantry on the part of so many males

Refill on the coffee? Where the heck is John today?

yeah, we had the 'talk' today. i told him i thought he was excessive in his 'protection' of me. i explained how it could have been handled differently. and how there are always consequenses to one's actions. and you never know what those could be.

i told him he just meant to shove him, but didn't know his strength so the guy fell backward in his chair. he didn't mean to do that but what 'if' the guy had hit his head? no one knows more about the crap that comes with a head injury.

of course he didn't think of that.

you're right, his frontal lobe was damaged, the response center. so he acts first, usually, before he thinks it through.

but no one was hurt and he knows if he does anything like that again I'LL kick his azz.

some one always spoils a good time.

sound cool lab, I think my problems I have with painting is that I am a turbo painter and want everything now. when I settle in to the meditative painting thing I always enjoy it. but then some days I just want to mass produce. potters are trained to rely on instinct and make a lot and cull later as one never know what will happen to the work. its so flying by the seat of your paints sometimes being a potter but you learn to make certain things and after you get your mass production done you make the real work. one supports the other. and when you get to the point where you are making the other work you integrate it in to your mass production lines. or parts of it.

anyway just a thought for the day.

Oil painters are stuck doing "dark to light" which means lots of shadows, armpits and hidey holes first.

(Unlike watercolorists who go "light to dark") It's hairy wanting to get it on the canvas and having to wait. (I'm as impatient as you.) But oil is a strange medium, it acts like sculpture sometimes, and you blend something on the canvas accidently, that isn't on the palette, and you can never reproduce it. Weird, it's very like it's alive as well. You coax it, scream and 'swear' at it and then settle for what it wants.

(Another latte please, getting thirsty.)

comeing up,

the thing i do is make mud too much of the time and deciding what it the furthest away is another thing i have problems with what to paint first in the forground.

painting is intense thinking.

I always miss a step and it ends up not looking right,

but i work on it

cant wait to see the finished work lab

My problem is "eye-balling" the correct sizes head-body etc. I hate being "mathmatical" about it, seems to lose something when everything is "too semetrical. (Maybe I'm slightly cross-eyed, or the stigmatism is off??)

(Grabs the peanuts and throws them into the mouth, slurping the coffee as chaser.) Uck, you didn't warm me they were "honey-covered" peanuts....too sweet!! Want salty!!

I tend to work from distance to foreground and from dark to light, no matter what painting medium I'm using. I'm too impatient to paint in background around anything

A painting that had a huge influence on how I paint is this unfinished one, which Maxfield Parrish decided to redo a portion of, then died before he could complete it. He began with a detailed ultra-marine base and then glazed over it, but in the shadows, the original blue shines through in the finished painting.

The day that Alma Gilbert hung it in her gallery, she called me and I had a rare chance to study it for hours, with my nose about 3 or 4 inches from the panel. Ever since, I've done basically that in many paintings, both acrylic (water-based) and alkyd (oil).

sounds weird i have the same exct problem have to use a t squar. also try if your drawing from photo reference drawing upside down. i dont know why but it works. also i do blind contour drawing as warm ups. it works for me. but i still have problems. that book drawing on the right side of the brain opened up the world of art for me at one time. but i had to put it away and lost the ground i gained. just now i feel i am learning again.

lots of his work was set up for the four color plate printing method. there is an artist in AK that does the same thing and does the polar bears. he goes over board though and his painting are like blue yellow and orange. but the work is exquisite and he captures what he wants too. you know pat I always thought your work was a bit like maxfeild parish inspired but is defiantly your own thing.

I think one problem I have with painting is that I donít integrate things very well as I always think in separate elements and things just look stark. plus I have a love of vivid color. which is fine I guess but not so fine when subtlety is called for.


Ill have to take a good look at that painting again.

love the maxfeild parish paintings btw.
