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!
We're 3° latitude difference, I bet I'm close!

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
Just looked at an apt yesterday...didn't like it...ima stay here for the summer...save money then re assess. I'm also gonna confront him and lay it on the table. I'm out much of the time now and can't fuck around. Let's see how he deals with being confronted
More Barrio studies from right here in Tucson.
Wow, great job! I love this!
Been busy moving. New roomie is an English teacher. Nice girl. Cute. Smart.
New place is a horse farm. There are chickens, turkeys, coyotes and a mountin lion. I like the smell of horse shit. Who knew? I'll use it to help soil fertility in the front then make a garden. Also want to grow somemweed somewhere.
Anyhow here are a few studies fron right here on the property.
big change from last roomie, huh? good deal!
