Finally a photo!

Continuing the saga of the twelve foot painting.

Yes........I've been working some more and dragging the three panels out to the fence where I just had to photograph them standing side by side on the ground...even took the infrequently used tripod out to hold it steady down that low to take a picture to send in to the designer. Tomorrow I may change my mind but it could be considered finished. You know, finish is in the eye of the beholder as they say about beauty. Some people would say add more, some say take out some. It's even harder to determine if all you can see is a little image on a computer monitor. Either the first installment of the painting could be considered finished or this one.........but that is determined by the space where it will be displayed.

Just now uploading this and hoping blogger will let me load a picture this time. Not a word yet yes or no..........maybe off for a long week-end. Just answered that question...NO. So what is the deal? Is there a limit on how many images I can upload. Maybe I'll put it on my website and link to it.


  1. There must be a good reason for this - but why are you using snail mail instead of email for showing your client the progress on your painting? I find it much easier to get the color to match on a screen than on a piece of paper.

    Oh, and Blogger just hiccups every now and then, so don't worry.

    Love the painting, by the way. Sure is getting realistic looking.

  2. Well..........the reason is the designer must not be up to par on looking at work in a photo program. She said that they were issued laptops after Katrina so they could pick up and go at a moment's notice. She needed to really see the colors............ SO, I had to snail mail and it took 8 days to get there....can you believe it???

  3. oh yeah........forgot the realistic part......I thought so as well and that's just me. For some reason what I think is getting realistic is sometimes abstract to other people so I never know for sure.
    ya think this looks like the gulf coast........???

  4. This is gorgeous! I love the shots of blue throughout. It definitely looks like much of "my" gulf coast.

    I've been having fits with blogger's photo uploading too. I try and it doesn't work; then I try again and it does. I've written them so they don't think they've fixed the problem.

  5. Glad to have all the comments. I lose track of what something really looks like after I've been looking at it so long and can't get away.
    Wondering also why yahoo keeps sending lots of my regular mail to the spam filter now....just found this one and some others.
