Thanks Paul for the like on Meghan and the comments on Rhino. It is terrible that Rhinos are poached for their horns. There is no medical value in them whatsoever, they consist of Keratin, which is the same as hair and finger nails. I might as well save all my cut hair and nail clippings for a year and send them to Asia for processing.
Thanks Paul glad you liked my Blast Furnace watercolor! I did a short stint working on top of the Coke Ovens and had to wear wooden clogs attached to my work boots so the soles of your boots would not melt. Very hot and hard work,but I have great memories of the guys I worked with,we made sure we had fun doing the job. Take care, P.J.
Hi Paul....yes my eyes are better but then again it wasnt that good to begin with....my vision that is....go back next week and hopefully get the all clear to have my eyes checked for new glasses....I was suppose to get steroid eye drops but when I went to pick up my meds, its wasnt included so I guess the dr. changed his mind.....or the nurse probably forgot to include it....it was to diminish the scarring on my cornea....will see if I still would need it when i go back next week....he highly recommended it when I last saw him so I was confused why it wasnt included in my meds pick up
hiya paul, thanks; got all or most of my prrenials in for high sun. now to get them in the boxes. i've been lucky w plants and my kitty boy. he chews, but doesn't get sick. yes, be careful w the oils and the brush cleaners are even worse. retirement has meant that i work all day and half the night. spring planting, but spring cleaning too. still not too busy to chat w nice folks.
lol...i never forget a face. and spk'ing of oils, i can't use those due to chemical effect on my health. but i love your brush strokes and raised texture w oils. today my mind is obsessed w getting perennials into the boxes on the side of my house. i ran fr borough to borough yesterday in search of hearty phlox and hopefully i rap part one up, today. do whatever you love; just keep creating.
Thanks Paul glad you liked my watercolor abstracts! I use Windsor & Newton paints for almost all my work. I have quite a collection of W&N tubes artist or student grade,what ever I can afford for these abstracts I used full strength.They are expensive here in Canada.I have a pair of needle nosed pliers handy so I can squeeze every last drop outa them!!...Take care,P.J.
