Ooh! I came across this in my favorites and the color scheme totally reminds me of that other one. It's very pretty :-)

thanks! it's funny because i told you i was going to give you something that matched because i though you wanted that painting 5150 --the one you found.and i realized this quite bit later that you wanted the the incandescent afternoon. it's totally fine to give you that one but it's funny. all my titles are so esoteric that i can't remember what it was without double checking!

glad you liked i!

i am having the worst time coming up with my token/ artwork for the prize. i have serious part finished ones, but none of them please me. i'm going to extend the contest time on for various reasons. like, i didn't write the new articles yet , on and on and i have sooooooooooooooooooooo many prize artworks! it's fun though, keeps me busy!

how's life for you?

Oh, wow...I didn't realize I'd caused any confusion. Sorry about that!!! Yeah, Incandescent Afternoon is the one with the color scheme that really drew me in :-)

If you can't come up with anything you really like as a prize, you could always compile a list of the pieces that you made as attempts, and let the winner choose one from them. You never know...I've found that sometimes pieces I make that I totally dislike, others love! Or optionally, do you do commissions? Like you could let the winner choose colors and style and such based on your other artworks.

Life is good for me...keeping busy for the most part. Just got home from work, and I feel like it's been forever since I painted. But I just checked and it's only been 3 days!!! God I'm so addicted, lol. It probably feels like it's been so long because it's been longer since I created something I really liked. I'm itching to make a new "masterpiece" (lol, that's what I call my favorites), but I don't really have any grand ideas. I'll have to spend more time searching through dA...this site is such a good source of inspiration!!

I loooove the color scheme in this! The way you put it together, it works beautifully :-)

it's a more complicated thing as it seems at the first glance.
i suppose, you had to make a lot of decisions while working, which colors to use for background and the following steps - and at the same time, not to loose spontaneus emotional motivated aspects. a n exciting, cliff-hanging apporoach.
great artwork

love and peace

i love the controlled agression of the flow.:D
merpagigglesnort Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2011   Traditional Artist
thanks! after i painted it, i scraped all the paint of the "peaks" in the gesso an they were left almost white when i did that. the work with the palette knife was definitely aggressive! very fast. :)

No, but I am glad you explain what mediums you use.
Most people let you hang.
If I care, I have to ask, otherwise, I just leave.
merpagigglesnort Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2010   Traditional Artist
i'm always really curious about how people do what they've done, cause i like to know hows and whys and i love to try new mediums and techniques. i always say my medium, but i'd like to tell more about the technique or the ideas, but often i just don't have the patience for it. sometime i'd like to take better pictures of a lot of the stuff in my gallery and to write better comments.

lol! :)

Moods, weather conditions, my lack of inner peace are all factors that effect your art and patience.
I understand what you are saying.
But, you're fine with all of that.
You will become more comfortable with prismacolors as time goes by.
I was to be a college art teacher up until my real bad illness, now that I feel better, I may persue my last few classes on-line.
Or, maybe in class, ObaMao is wanting the home internet use to become "pay as you go."
I don't have a camera, so all of my gallery is scanned, and tweaked in a software called 'Corel Photo Album 6', and then submitted to dA. :alien:
