It's like flipping the canvas and seeing a whole new perspective
Small WC, 1/8th sheet of Nogales, Sonora from pix I took from the hill tops.
Nogales sonora, street scene
What do u mean?
From the shadows you painted, it looks like it was around 230pm. If I can tell what time the scene was, I'd say that's a pretty impressive objective indicator of your talent
Thats funny...u know what...I'll check the time stamp on my camera tomorrow and see what time of day I took the photo.
Shadows I think are also subject to time of year. Winter shadows are longer bc the sun doesn't rise as high. If you're right I'll give u a prize.
Some real serious talent you have there. Thanks for sharing those, I enjoyed them!

The feeling is mutual, man. Your painting is damn impressive. You seem to have a master grasp on light, shadows and shapes.
Can I see a picture of your workspace? What do your friends/family think of your work?
I will post pix on my fb and I get likes from the few remaing family that I speak to. I kicked most of them out of my life. Gun touting, homo hating, racist Irishman. (But they go to church on Sunday, go figure.)I have a few friends that are family too. I do have one artist friend here in Tucson, shes like 70 and a german woman who has a duel citizenship. Shes great.
Really, Ive shown twice and received awards twice which I am happy about but I'm very hard on myself and won't show anything I'm not 100% on. There are a lot of top notch painters out there and I learned early that you never show anything but your best work. The competition is stiff but I'm hoping in a few more years I'll try to get accepted into some national watercolor clubs, like AWS, NWS and a few others.
I'm at a point now though that I have enough for a one man show, I just have to mat and frame all this shit which as you know is expensive. I just landed a pt job at a specialty nursery which will help with framing and I'm thinking that by fall I'll be ready. There is a gallery in Nogales Az that I know will show my stuff and I need to get ahold of a lady from Hilltop gallery to talk to about that.
Here is my make shift studio such as it is. I don't need much to paint in this medium as opposed to oils and its all very easy to pack up, go outdoors and paint plein air, which I love but not in this fucking heat. Its like, if you don't get out there by 7am you might as well not go out. Or late in the day. I don't know how attached I am to southern AZ. I'd move to northern AZ in a minute if I could find work. Or Calli. Northern Calli is beautiful.
glad you found work, DB. Were you able to reach any resolution with/about your roomate?
Ha...just today the Internet got turned off cause he didn't pay the fricking bill. We fight over a lot of dumb shit...I'm looking at apartments now...I'll be out of here in a month. I hate tweakers. Here's my tweaker joke for today...
What's the difference between a crackhead and a tweaker? The crackhead will steal your shit and bounce--the tweaker will steal your shit and then help you look for it .
Really great work, love your setup too =D. One day I'll learn to paint
