    I need to text her. Thing is...The plein air painters I go out with weekly like painting horses so I want to get her ok to bring half a dozen other painters there. It's great for me cuz I live next door.

    Yeah text her and send some photos with the text. Where do the other plain air painters go to paint their horses?

    Ya know Amber...I didn't ask...There are plenty of horse venues around here so it could be anywhere. Christel told me she was on jury duty so I haven't texted her again since Monday..I don't wanna seem like a stalker either.
    I'll see her as I walk the dog which is almost every day.

    I like to do paintings over and over till I like em. I've done this one before. I like painting Airstreams. They're all silvery.

    Can I see a picture of the brush set you're using?

    I can't afford expensive brushes. I'd love to own beautiful, sharply pointed round stables but I l8terally just use whatever I can afford at the time...I also think expensive brushes are a scam...better to spend my money on good paper and the best paints I can but...so here's my welfare brush set.
    Also a pi3ce I'm almost finished...It's a detail of the inside of one of the oldest missions in Tucson...San Xavier del Bac.

    I was curious because of all the small, fine details you're able to achieve using water colors. I think you're right about the price of brushes. This last piece is absolutely impressive, man. So much detail and the perspective is perfect, I feel like I'm standing there looking up at the wall myself. Great job

    Not to get all weird, but that painting moves me. So beautiful!

    Gosh they are great works of art Dannyboy. Your so versatile in subjects. I wish I knew you when I lived in Tucson. I’m glad I spent time there because it helps me connect even more with your art. I spent quite a bit of time outdoors there, my favorite place was Sabino canyon. Saw a huge wild tarantula on the trail. And a Gila monster on the trail. You ever see any outside?

    Sabin Canyon is on my list of place I gotta see.
    Never seen a tarantula outside of the Desert Museum. I probably wouldn't know a Gila monster if I tripped over one. I'd probably be like "here doggy doggy".

    St Peter's Episcopal Church, Tucson. I'm into Eucalyptus trees and the white bark and the cool shadows they cast.

    I don't draw enough. I found I missed it. It is the basis for all good art. Anyhow I'm doing a few portraits for peeps for Christmas. 20171218_100144.jpg

    My watercolor titled "Old Timer" was accepted into Aqueous32 in Tubac AZ. It's a national show with big (for me) prize money. I'm happy just to be showing with some very talented painters. 20171019_164847.jpg

    I love that,
    You have a very unique style.
    Its like when you hear eddie van halen
    You know its him.


    I cant put my finger on it but i think its a color contrast thing with the shading.

    I've been thinking the same thing Padda, not to toot my own horn but I'm trying very hard to paint almost every day so that's why...on a related topic I've been seeing how my work is tightening up. I'm not sure if I like that so much but I know from experience that the average person relates to art that is somewhat realistic. Mb that'll help it to sell.
    Here's a piece I'm working on of the horse ranch next door, unfinished. Hopefully the owners will want it.
