Comments: The Thursday Three's First Anniversary

I love your artwork, Jordana. And BOY, you gots a lots!

In case anyone wants to use it, I set up a York account under the name Nigel Tuffnell, password spinaltap.

OH! And next time you're in Birmingham, we'll eat some lunch!

I hope you'll be polite if I start looking like an uneducated rube while we're eating lunch. Not that I'd expect anything else from you.

Seeing as how I tend to set the standard for uneducated rubes, I don't think you have much to worry about.

Great artwork. I'm partial to your paintings with the clear glass vases. Very, very nice.

Don't think of your stomach as gone, just missing-in-action. I know mine is underneath my chubbiness somewhere.

I liked the concept of walking dogs with Jonah. It would be a chance to be sociable, and you always have the dog to distract you if an awkward moment came up. The big question: would you go with the plastic bag for poop patrol/clean-up or would you go upscale with one of those carry-along metal scoopers?

I especially like your self-portrait and the painting of your brother.

What sort of technique is that? Does it have a name?

I enjoy Jonah and Jay, but the Derb is my favorite =] Impromptus, though, is great!

Janis, I don't know if it has a name. You draw the image in pencil and then paint multiple layers of tempera (not egg tempera) around the drawing leaving a bit of space around the lines. Once you've built up 3 or so colors of paint everywhere, you paint india ink over the whole thing. When that's dry, you take a damp sponge or cloth and start rubbing. The india ink covers the pencil lines that you didn't cover with paint, but rubs off to reveal the layers of color in the other areas.

Lenise, I do like Derb too. It would be fun to go play in the Derb family treehouse.
