Friday Night Expressions

friday night rolled around.
ended up holding an impromptu painting party.
a good buddy of mine popped over and played with color.
the results are mixed (just kidding, general!)
the first two are the general's.
still had a blast though.

the general's artist statement:
"The above was the General's first attempt at painting since he was a child.
Be prepared for more, as his skills can only improve.
He's got more ideas in his head for next week.
Keep posted soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines!"

(a walk in the world says, "capital! capital!")

blue buffalo woman

"where is the buffalo? gone.
and what is it to say goodbye to the swift and the hunt,
the end of living and the beginning of survival."

~ Chief Seattle, 1855

blue dipper wishes

"the winding night, the universe
and I, infinitesimal being,
drunk with the great starry void,
likeness, image of mystery,
i felt myself a pure part of the abyss,
i wheeled with the stars,
my heart broke free on the open sky."

~ pablo neruda

They are beautiful, What type of paint is that? it's held the colors well, mine seam to fade a bit, or loose their sheen.

Check out my blog;)

Hi, Juanita!

I'm so glad you visited. It's a mix of watercolor and acrylic. I get deeper color with the acrylic but find watercolors more forgiving.

I will check out your blog!
