Computer Ergonomics and Blogging about Painting

My mouse and my paint brush are causing havoc  with my hand. Gotta stop blogging so often. You’re probably saying,” whew she is finally winding down. I don’t have to feel badly if I don’t push the “like” button.” I’m still here seeing what you are doing. I’ll keep going to the studio -just have to give my hand a rest and figure out my body posture. Traveling is in my near future. That will keep me off the computer. Well, maybe I’ll post from my cell phone app……

 These photos were taken inside, natural light , no rain, using the new iphone camera. The lens is amazing. I’m getting very lazy – not dragging around my camera and setting up the studio for shots of art work – just whipping out my phone and taking a picture! Pretty cool.

We are going backwards here. The top image is the last one painted. This is the first painting I’ve done in over a year. Here is your official notification Terry,  http://terrygreenepainting.wordpress.com/paintings-2011/  I’ve been following Terry’s just another painter blog. Gail, http://www.gailtrobertson.com/helped get me to this point, also. This little series of 6″ x 8″ images started out with me going to to a friend’s house and making collages. I didn’t know what I was doing – no inspiration. I came home with nothing. The next morning at 5 am I was tearing up magazines. Abstract eight – Shadow was born. That reminded me of a photograph I had taken showing the shadow of a sculpture in my apartment. Early morning sun hit the stone sculpture in a way that created a soft realistic shadow of a nude.
