Last multi-photo post - probably maybe?

I'm posting 11 (eleven) photos of my paintings today - sorry. I hope to resume posting one or two at a time from now on.  

If you have a PC you can see the photos of the paintings more clearly if you right-click on the photo then choose view in a new window. I dislike the "new" blog method of the slideshow as I can't see the details as we could "before".

 I have the greatest respect and admiration for the people that will put their bodies on a skateboard. And to see the "tricks" that most do is sometimes beyond belief!  

The "canvas paper" that I used is advertised as gessoed canvas sheets in a tablet form. I had to tape the sheets to a large piece of masonite to hold the sheet in place while I painted.

A "study" for a larger painting.

Hey Battah Battah - SWING
12 x 16  Oils on canvas panel
The title is a taunt (chatter?) that the opposing team calls out when a batter is in the batters box. Especially if the batter has a tendency to swing on command. :-)

  2. Hi Nicole. Thanks for your kind comment. I don't post as often as I would like just lazy I guess. :-)

  3. But "one photo per one post" increases blog traffic.. specially when done on "one in two days" basis..
    I am glad to get your comment. And the funny photos in the mail.
    What is your camera name? After I learned my Canon for almost one year, maybe I will be able to help you to make photos without glare.

  4. Hi Irina, sorry that I have increased blog traffic for you. I thought it OK to make one post rather than many. I'll try to not do it again.


  5. Ken, sorry for my English. I wanted to say: more posts means more visitors. That is why separate paintings in the separate posts increase blog traffic.
    As for me, I will be glad to see your paintings if you post them all at once or separately.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
