Even more painting for you

I've been writing all day for delicious cash money, and I am all worded out. After I was done working, I spent hours trying to figure out the best way to scan watercolors. Turns out there's an art to it. Then you have to fix the levels in Photoshop, and that, my friends, almost made my brain go kablooey. But I did it, sort of! I even put a watermark in there--like a boss, I dare say. Someone high five me!  

Here's a view of the lake at Henry's camp.


And this is the Jizo statue I referred to in this piece. I like him a lot more now than I did then. I can't hold a grudge against that face. Henry is partial to this little guy, so now it lives in his room.

Your background in that second one is great. I never know what to do with a still life background when I paint.

Sheesh, I am a fledgling "daddy blogger" and your talent in multiple areas is downright intimidating. Congrats!

I know this isn't the point of this post...but I had never read the piece about your miscarriage before. I miscarried in April 2011, and it's been a rough year and a half. I did try again, and I'm currently 35 weeks pregnant. I have a hard time being hopeful and happy for this baby while still mourning the other baby. Anyway, what I wanted to say was it's a beautifully written piece. I find a lot of comfort in stories that sound so much like mine. Like, we're all in this together. Something like that.

Lovely paintings by the way. Lovely, lovely, lovely. You are so talented...a Renaissance lady.

Beth, I'm so happy the essay helped. Thanks so much for letting me know. And congratulations!

You know, a jizo is a special little god that protects women, children, and travelers. Sometimes "travelers" refers to astral travel; sometimes not. Your son's room is a great place for him.

These are wonderful. I'm so glad you're doing this, Alice. :)

And congratulations, Beth! ♥

Gorgeous paintings, Alice. I love it when you post paintings. They are a breath of fresh air in the blogging world.

I keep coming back to this post, drawn by the first painting. I figured it was time that I left you a comment to let you know how wonderful it is.

Beautiful paintings. And while it made your head almost go "kablooey", doesn't it feel great to have learned something new. My wife was so happy yesterday when she told me that she had googled, found, downloaded and set up quicktime on her parents computer. It was fun to see.
