Breakfast for Five — David Fisher, Carving Explorations

About two years ago, I wrote a post about busting up a big cherry log into various bowl blanks. This experimental piece came from either the billet labeled A or B, so it has vertical grain (had I sawn it instead of splitting it, it could be called quarter sawn). I had the general idea […]

Winter, East Fork Jemez River

A detailed wilderness. Nice!

Jonathan Keeton Artist Blog

A couple of winters ago, I went through the canyon of the Jemez River near Valles Caldera in New Mexico. I wore some cheap waders and some good crampons, as the landscape was filled with ice and snow. This is a watercolor towards the end of the day from pretty far in the canyon, but out of the rocks. I had been following a coyote for most of the way, and wanted to include his (her) tracks. Here are some of the stagesof the painting along the way.

DSC03742 It’s always tricky knowing how to begin a complicated scene. In this case, I put in some of the foreground snow and the warm reflection on the water before starting on the trees.

When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking…

Looking around…

Morning Story and Dilbert

Morning Story and Dilbert Vintage Dilbert
July 29, 2000

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you hang my first painting on the fridge,
and I immediately wanted to paint another one…

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you feed a stray cat and I learned that it was good to be
kind to animals…

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you make my favorite cake for me and I learned that the
little things can be the special things in life…

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I heard you say a prayer and I knew there was a God I could
always talk to and I learned to trust in God…

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick
and I learned that we all have to help take care of each other…
