Collage like quality with soft pastel, playful, movement with words. I like the simple lines, tossed here and there.

I'm also very fond of this one.

ah yes... also a play area for those who have missed word verification. *smile*

I think Andrea has summed it up well here. I too like the words. Don't miss word verification though!
Sorry it has taken me so long to visit, swimming againts the tide lately!

Beautifully constructed. This is the most "painterly" one yet, I think. Can't remember if I've asked this before because i'm old and senile, but do you do anything with old-fashioned mediums? Some of your work begs to be taken to another level, nome sane? I keep wondering about how these would look with texture, depth...

Thanks, everyone.

Rima, my intent is to try to do a show sometime where I create a computer art - then print and paint with acrylics - then photograph that print and create a third image - each work would be computer generated print, painted print, computer image of painted print. The circle of life....

I paint birds realisticly with acrylics and also have done shows with photos painted over - mostly soft pastels fixed on blackl and white prints.

I left art for many years - kids - starting about a year ago again. I did paint a lot of prints until last June, but then a proposed show with a New York Broadway actress/dancer fell apart when she decided to move west.

Since last June I mostly have improved my ability to use a couple of pretty simple Paint and phtotography programs. I bloged for a long time before reaching out her - your sister was the first I commented to., as I recall, because I noticed her blog of note in December.

My main issue is that the image files are relatively small s9o canot be blown up very large. For now I can live with that. It is what I need to do.

Need to get off my arse....maybe soon. It is hard to balance all aspects of life with art.

Yay, i'm so glad to hear all of this. It's very, very exciting - and I have a lot to say about it (surprise!). I'll just say this for now: investigate more sophisticated graphics programmes - they allow you to print really large images. There are printers everywhere who can handle printing on large surfaces (duh, rima!), even canvas, or linen. Is it ok to come back to this topic again? there's so much to talk about - if not here, then in the art forum i'm setting up
