The Prankster

When Nick Simmons did his famous Demo of Koi on Wet Canvas in which about 15,000 people viewed and took part in the Lottery for the painting , I was greatly inspired by the work and did about 9 myself .

At that time I was alone a lot ,since Louie 's accumulated stays at Both the Hospital and Waveny Rehab followed each other for almost 2 and a half years .

Fish tanks are common in both places , but Waveny had especially Beautiful , well taken care of Tanks with Gorgeous Fish .

I noticed that even Fish ,fool around and play tricks on each other , or so it seems to me .Anyone who knows me would know that Fish being playful would strike me as really funny . I have a Nutty sense of humor

I spent some time examining the games they play together and that is what I thought about while doing the Prankster . They probably all call him the "Brat "!

A Leaf Alone

Some people hate Masking , But to me the fun of revealing what is under it is more fun than anything . Of course ,I have had my Horrifying spills with it , but that hasn't dissuaded me from using it .

More Petunias

My Newest Petunia painting.

I tried working the background first on this one .Not a Normal method for me . But I do think it has a softer look due to it .

A few leaves have fallen but everything is still pretty green and it's still Hot enough for the AC to be blasting away like Summer .
We are awaiting more Hurricanes and hope they will never hit us.
The Painting above shows the Pond, when we used to have ice on it . It has been over 25 years since you could skate on it, as my kids did all Winter years ago . This painting may be the only memory we have of it now ,other then a few Photos of the fun on the Ice . Actually it IS only a Memory now . I wish I had done more .
