I actually have periodic nightmares -- or more like just unpleasantly frustrating dreams -- that I'm in some gorgeous location that I want to paint and for one reason or another (like, my canoe capsized and fried my camera) I can't. I hate those dreams! Happens periodically in real life too, but more often I go out when it seems like a lovely day and when I get to my location all these darn clouds roll in and spoil the scene.

So, you have my sympathies on that score, though it seems like still quite a nice trip, so you have my envy on that other score.

Looking forward to the paintings.

Did you get to Austin for the symposium this month?

Yeah, those bags with the zipper can't close entirely. There is always a tiny bit of unclosed bag at the corner.

No, I wasn't able to attend the Austin symposium. I came within a hair's breadth, but decided it was a luxury I couldn't afford. I had the funds, but decided I could use them more responsibly in other ways.

Next year in Jerusalem.


A) Use a "J"
B) Use a stern-to-bow sweep stroke
C) Drop your paddle and scream like a girl

I have extensive experience on Ozark streams. I'm especially fond of the North Fork near West Plains, MO.

My answer to your quiz: All three are equally effective.

The Aesthetic Elevator


If you have the time I'm wondering what you think of this post of mine: http://theaestheticelevator.com/2008/04/21/another-mason-watercolor/ . Basically, the work featured in the post is something I refer to as "hotel room art." It's a realistic painting, but to me it's also just decorative. This, of course, harkens back to our discussion on abstraction and decoration etc.

If you've got the time, I'd love to know if you have any thoughts on this . . .
