oil on canvas

Just started to type and let out a weary sigh. Re-read this and did it again! The painting speaks for itself, I guess. Bupkiss. Nada. Nuthin. If I could spell that raspberry sound I just made that gave my screen a refreshing summer shower, I would. Oh well! Until somthin' happens, I'll just keep bawling up bad ideas and painting them. Could be worse.


  1. For someone who is feeling "blah" this sure is a great painting...fantastic study of contrast.

  2. No words! What can i say ..I never imagined that something like this can be painted..:0 You are so creative dear! Loved it!

  3. Very well done. Great color work. It is amazing how such a simple thing can be made so beautiful as you have done here.
    Just read your last several postings-Your writing is every bit as well done as your painting.

  4. Great highlights and shadows! You have the knack for taking even the simplest of concepts and turning them into something spectacular.

  5. The paper crumpled into the same scrunch one would make with their mouth when delivering a "raspberry" sound. Always entertaining :-)

  6. I know that feeling of blah ... the let-down seeing a piece that you thought was going to be good.

    But, SUZANNE!... this IS good...

    Some of us think so anyway. I actually really like it. It fairly jumped off the DP home page ... made me smile too.

  7. I don't know of anyone better at "seeing" and putting what they see to canvas. Excellent job, Suz. It's not just the great contrast that stands out to me, but the great use of color. Those greens and purples are perfect. Now, wipe off that screen, wad up some more bad ideas and turn them into art like you just did...

  8. This is a perfect example of turning lemons into lemonade!

    What you thought wouldn't work, you turned into into something else....literally a work of art!

    Brava to you, Suzanne! You know how many people would've said, "It's not working out", and then stopped?

    You kept going and produced something beautiful in the process.

    Quite inspirational IMHO!


  9. Nice value study, Suzanne! Just paint your way through it, you're doing great!

  10. Tremendous. I'm very impressed by your paper-ball paintings! I may have to consider myself inspired.
