I can't think of a worse time for all this to happen.... (Google refusing to allow me to post my photos from the place I have them...). Many artists are right in the beginning of a great challenge, 30 Days, 30 Paintings, sponsored most generously by Leslie Saeta.
I really needed this because I have not worked consistently for months. I need this boost! I need the satisfaction to find out that that I can still swing a brush.
I have been contemplating a move of Blog for a while. The photo thing proved to be the last straw.
I considered just giving up. I cried.
Then I decided I must go forward with the Painting Challenge and I must be able to post on Leslie Saeta's blog with the other participants!
Of course, in my ineptness, I put the wrong address here.... But I have changed that.
I do hope you who have been so encouraging will come visit...
It is so much easier to leave a message for me at this new place, which is one major reason to move.
Come, help me feel at home in the new place!
Also, I can again, post my own photos of my paintings!
Google, in its finite wisdom, no longer allows me to post new pictures. I no longer have access to Windows Photo Gallery on my computer. Therefore, unless this is changed back again, this is my last posting.
Is this corporate quarrelling?
Is this progress?
Am I missing something obvious? Am I too e stupid????
I could get photos from a phone..... but that would not allow for sizing and editing or give adequate quality of photograph. And I do not have a smart phone nor can I afford to acquire one.
I could post from Picasa Web Albums, but there are only six images shown; all old ones; and no visible way to get to others.
I could get photos from this blog, but they are already on the blog. I need the blog to post new photos, not ones already here....
The other option is to "Paste an image URL here..." I have no idea what this means.... but I copied the info from the photo of my new painting and tried "pasting" it with no results.
SO when I find a new place to blog, I will put the address here. Meanwhile I am on Facebook and Twitter.
During the summer plans were made for a program of Christmas music for our community planned and performed by members of our Burley West Stake, Church of. Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was asked to make a painting for the cover of the program. While I was contemplating it, a wonderful photograph came on a Blog I have been following, "Huntsman's in the Holy Land". It showed a group of students standing near Bethlehem in what is called the L.D.S. Shepherd's Field. I was so excited. As I looked at it, I could see this painting and felt it would be perfect for the cover.
I was able to contact Eric Huntsman who graciously gave his permission to use his photograph.
Our program was held Sunday, Dec. 16th and was a wonderful experience for all who attended.
