Do you have a preference in building styles?
More important than the style is for me how the accessories “frame” the building. With this church I like the arched windows and door and the round walls and bowl-like roof . At the same time, I like the pointed front, framing the door and windows.
This church stands in Athens, and is from my non-digital era. From the people there we met, most considered themselves very religious. Scroll down for the door in Jackson!

Finally the things I am painting has crept into my subconscious after two months – “seeing” it while waking up in the morning.
So if I have been lagging to reply to your comments or seemed distracted -I have been -majorly! and I apologize. Even if I haven’t answered, I have enjoyed them as much as before, as well as reading your blogs:)
An UPDATE on my mammoth painting (10 high x 17 wide feet). Started in May/June, painting in the afternoon. HOW PAINTING LARGE IS DIFFERENT. I chose this view on purpose, because I keep changing things!
The mobile platform hubby built with railings for safety for me as well as for kids, proved to be of much benefit. So no one drops ( Fri Hunt) to the floor unaware!
You can’t see it here, but on the right side is a tray, where I can put brushes, paper towel, mineral spirits, because walking the stairs every 5 min. slows me down
Have learned to walk downward backwards on these stairs:):)
The initial adjustment:
– being aware at all times where (on which step/ level) I stand
– getting used to painting larger size of any object, including people
– painting longer (time wise) does not necessarily mean progress. Take a break! A new look brings new inspiration:)
– larger size also means bigger contrast of values (intensity of color)
– but … without losing structure and depth of my personal style (large objects seem to become quickly flat and commercial looking, instead of painterly)!
– not cleaning my( at least) 11 brushes daily, slows me down the next day!
A big plus in knowing how to postpone feelings – you can easily become discouraged with such a big project, and I’m not planning to give up, so this the time for “doing” – “feeling” will come later!
I’m in my element being able to do this, does make me happy! (Fri Hunt)

Reflections of the booths across the street in Jackson, California , being part of the Dandelion festival in the spring. You see something growing in the drain or run-off?
Don’t mind when there is a haze, as long as the hills are green. Since I see a few telephone poles, the trees in this landscape are not as little as they seem here, either:)
