What if it were my last post? What would I want to leave... billions of years before my beginning, billions of years after my end, 97% of human history lost, what of me can I hope to leave? What do I have to give? I'll give a whisper to the wind, a sigh, a last breadth, I'll paint a fading song for a new generation.

And if all that goes to shite, I'll give my corpse to cosmetic surgeons in need of practice and finally get a friggin face lift. Ha!

LAST!!! (for a few minutes)

Top of the morning to everyone, its 2:28 am New Orleans, Louisiana time. I am off from work for the summer from the university were I am employed. I am not tired yet, enjoying some of the great threads posted today and this evening and morning.

Hello Jane, Mario, Denise, Erica, JL, Julie and Kasia, and Abbie,

Thank you Mario for the generous comment, I appreciate that, and right back at you. Its been a pleasure to view your accomplished and masterful gallery, I have noticed a personal signature with your original work, the subject and technique is very revealing. I have also noticed something unique, some of your work does have a art nouveau period appeal to it. I will be visiting your gallery again soon.

Everyone have a great day tomorrow.

Could you please explain what "soliciting" mean? I googled it of course, but somehow can't understand what people mean when they invite you to participate in a contest and say no soliciting. Thanks in advance!

 

Mario Labonte

It seems they perhaps didn't specify any soliciting examples, so I can only assume they meant not to approach contest members trying to sell them your art?
Kind of strange indeed...Maybe a lot of people on here do this sort of thing, I don't know since I am new here...

OMG!!! what a banquet to these eyes. The pages are so beautiful.
I have to get my sunglasses.
Michael, Mary, Karyn and Jamie,

Karyn that is a good painting.
the vacation from art didn't hurt you at all. lol

My hubby just had to have more stents put in. It was different this time.
they put a balloon in this leg from his knee to the lower leg. He now has a pulse in his feet again.
He is back to normal and walking in the neighbor hood again. it is so amazing what they can do to
keep your heart and blood pumping.

I have to work the Arizona State Fair Sunday night. Photos for the Phoenix Artist guild. we are one of the sponsors
for the fine art.

They used to have the photography fine art with us and it made such a wonderful show.
Some one changed it and they get put in the hall which makes me sad. not fair to the photographers.

I'm off to watch ASU Beat Stanford. I wish!!!!

Hi everyone!

Jaxine, glad your hubby is doing better. Michael, you have all the luck!. Karyn and Jaime are posting luscious art.

I started a new oil painting Sunday. I switched from regular oils to water based oil paints and they take some getting used to. They seem to streak to easily. Anyway, it's my big 20x60" for the living room. Have also been working on my Pinterest, which is connected to my zazzle store and here. I get more business from zazzle though. My sales here on FAA have dried up. I need to advertise more.

Here's a recent photograph though.

Hello Mary, your door knob is great we sure do see similar things which catch out attention as creative individuals. Here are two of my door knob photos. I have heard making the transition to water based oils from oil does take a little time, does if have an affect similar to acrylics. I remember an artistic friend switched and she was able to achieve opaque effects using acrylics because when it dried she could apply another color over it....she pretty much mastered that technique......I gather things were not too bad with the hurricane, I am gald.

Also an update I report to the movie set today here in New Orleans for the filming of Geostorm. Using the casting company has everyone view the casting calls when to arrive on set at 11:30 pm the night before. Well, I received an email yesterday evening and they were running late. I checked by 8:30 am this morning and I report at 11:30 am today, and will be on set til wee hours of the morning. I checked the rooster listing and there were only 20 listed for the shooting of that particular scene. Chances are I will be seen on the big silver screen unless editing cuts me out. I am still curious the costume designer when she was fitting me for wardrobe for the scene, I had to fittings of a navy blue suite but she decided to have me use a bow tie....after she tucked everything she stepped back and replied "you look fantastic Mr. President" since this is a Democratic Convention being filmed for the sci-fi thriller and I will be in the skybox of the Superdome while the scene of the Democratic Convention is taking place I may well be the President observing everything on the floor from the Skybox,,,,I will keep you posted.

The Jewish Rabbi character for another movie the casting company informed me there were no other characters over 60 they selected and because of my new public relations photos one of them being my new avatar I looked and laughed I am too skinny to be a Rabbi, but my long time friend yesterday evening said Michael informed me they have skinny Rabbi's..

Good luck with the new oil painting

Hi Everyone!

Jaxine, I'm in here so infrequently right now, I missed your announcement of your win. It must already be swallowed up by the Big Skip because I couldn't find it. Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS! A win, place or show once in a while is great confirmation for what we do.

Michael, I almost envy you your fun times.

David, nice to see benches as art. I have a few images and will eventually post them.

Steve, nice contrast of the lights and darks in your image, and the simplicity of it too.

Karyn, I might have chosen rugs for the living room that are too busy or bright. The flowers on them are BIG. This being the tropics, I chose florals. I had planned a big canvas to put behind the recliners. I was going to paint a certain composition in pink. Now, with the rugs and the colors there, I will paint my flowers a pale pumpkin shade to pick up colors in the rugs. That's all I'm going to say for now. Want to spring a total surprise when done.

Iris, did you serve those noodles after taking the picture?

Here's another door and knob.

Wow, it was an exciting day, I report to the set yesterday for the Movie GeoStorm at 11:30 am on Tuesday and clocked out at 4 am early Wednesday 14 hours. The scene I originally was selected for in the Sky Box of the sports arena where the Democratic Convention is being held will be taped today. Its a huge production Warner Brothers knows there business. Its just amazing the hundreds of us are group throughout the sports arena and then the wizards of Hollywood create the finished editing as if the entire sports arena is filled to capacity. I have found out Ed Harris is not playing the role of President, as I thought he was going to be. Finally I did get to see Ed Harris, he walked by me a few times and I do have a tad bit more hair than him....lol.

Early in the morning because they went over re-taping a scene, I was selected by the casting director to appear in a scene where the President Limo pulls into area prior to the convention to start. and a group of us are there welcoming him as his car pulls up with secret service. moving us back to let him walk through. In the other scenes taped all day I am sitting just in front of he platform with a group of others who will also in the be in skybox scene with delegates seated as he gives a speech to the convention. For the filming of the scene of President giving a speech myself and others were filling up spaces of empty seating.

I did find out the scene in the Skybox there will just be about 18 of us, chances are I will be visible during the taping of that scene. The extras for the skybox have no clue exactly what is going to take place, The skybox is the Presidential skybox reserved for the convention high above the area . I am having my first cup of coffee crashed early this morning and slept til about 12:00 going to head back to the set in about two hours. At one point they used me and another woman by ourselves for close up, and I was thinking should I be in that taping viewing the convention from the seats when its possible I am also going to be visible or noticed in the skybox....and they did remove me from that scene. Yesterday

Michael I can read the excitement in your post. So much fun keep us posted.

Mary most of my food photography I do not eat. At times it just sits too long on the set. If I have leftovers I have not used and sat out I might eat them. It all depends at time I will bother and flavor the dish for eating than other times I just do what it takes to create that mouthwatering image. Here is another one I did with Christmas trees.

Michael, what excitement you bring to the page
Wish we were with you to watch the goings on. It sounds so interesting.
please bring us more.

Mary, thank you for keeping in touch. You and Karyn are two of the busiest ladies I know.

JoNel, lovely art work. so colorful and unique.

The reception at the Fair went great. Not as many paintings this year.
They give us free parking way across the fair grounds and it is to far for a lot of us
to drag heavy camera bags and easels to demonstrate. I'm afraid the quality of art will go down
as a lot of my friends say no more. I hope not. I will give it another year to go though some growing pains with a new
art director. At least my voice and a bunch of others got them to move the Photography out of the hall and into the main art building.

That should grow for the photographers. Its about time.

have to go run some errands.

Jaxine, hope you are feeling better and hubby too. Are your eyes getting back to normal?

I had another image removed from my zazzle store yesterday. A picture of a Harley Davidson motorcycle. They are unbending about what they will and won't allow. Since it was my friend's Harley, I thought it would be OK to make products - hats, t-shirts, etc. But they say it's infringement on Harley's copyrights. You know they are right, so I'd better be careful about what I post - stick to generic stuff.

Just received my stand-up PC desk and it is a blessing. Ernest Hemingway stood up with his typewriter on a pedestal because he had back problems. I'm here to tell you, standing up is going to save my back. And, of course, the desk is adjustable if I should need to sit down instead.

So much is going on around here. The condo above us is being remodeled and the noise is nearly unbearable. We have concrete firewalls between all units - ceilings, floors, and both sides. They have to use a jack hammer when they remodel. I hope they finished that yesterday. Well, I could go on and on. I continue to sell in my zazzle store but nothing here on FAA. Am looking into other venues. As I write this, they just started again - with the diamond saws. I'm gonna scream! I keep saying once it's done it'll be fine.

Oh yes, my classic cars are garnering a lot of attention - on other sites. LOL

Hello everyone, as I mentioned I was asked to appear for an airport scene in the movie production this Monday... I can only think it may conventioneers greeting the President was his plane lands at the airport. Oh also, the director of this featured movie by Warner Brothers is the very same director who filmed Independence Day blockbuster hit.

Also, another featured film is look for extras to be in a prisoner scene, its a naked scene just the rear end its called (arse) lol to be taped in November...$250.00 for the shoot of prisoners being processed into the jail, and also fully clothed the following day. $101.00 for the shoot. The name of that movie being produced is Trumbo.....the very same movie they wanted me to be a Jewish Rabi I have not heard anything on that scene.

In that shooting of the prisoner scene when they get processed I would be just be standing naked going into the shower room. @250.00 just standing there sure would be easy and I would not be uncomfortable doing it....I will have to give my decision, its part of the process of being in the movies but I would have to laugh if another producer uses my (arse) for a movie scene. I am racking up more money doing these extra scenes than here on Fine Art America....lol, but for just extra money in my pocket its easy earned money. I am not certain but John Goodman had been debating to be lead actor in Trumbo......so much going on in and around the city.....I am still working on my casting planner to appear in American Horror story and NCSI New Orleans.....The important thing I must remember is the more productions I work on gets noticed by directors...and a plus on my resume, ..and that is a good thing, versatile is the keyword.



More info on GeoStorm with Ed Harris, Gerald Butler, Andy Garcia and Kathryn Winnick

update, well, the long awaited sky box scene was a wrap. I was in the Presidential Skybox with dignified guest. I was yet in another scene on the convention floor earlier this evening and then after that shoot we were brought up to the Skybox, my scene in the suite was the older guest speaking to the President's nieces. My back is to the camera at the party Gerald Butler is directly behind me to view the mounted TV which has breaking news (to remain a secret, you will have to wait til the movie is released) as he pauses he turns and walks past me. There were many shots of this particular scene as he rushes out the suite.

I am a guest the older man at the private party in the President's Skybox, everyone is watching his speeh down below. The director greeting me and informed me Michael you are the older gentleman at the party (hitting on, flirting with the President's niece) lol...If my scene remains in the movie I am facing the niece and her friend and boyfriend talking and holding my bourbon on the rocks glass as all the action is going on just behind me. We could not speak but mimic our motions the other extra informed me of everything she could read my lips....lol. she was watching the side monitor of the camera. The scene was shot from various angles......There is not a trailer out yet, but info on this Sci-fi triller....it will be released in 2106 I am sure just around or before election time. There is an assignation attempt on the Presidents life while at the convention.....

yes it is fun, everyone I have been meeting has been great, the story's they share, the experience of being on the sets quite frequent and have been getting many new contacts. I do not miss chopping onions, and the hustle and bustle of working in a kitchen.,...after the shoot the other extra told me I read your lips, because of the camera position behind me she should see the monitor of all the action. With all the editing which occurs I will not know until it printed if I appear but in the process its lots of fun being on the set. And every time the actor would come into the skybox she the extra and him were doing a little hitting on each other lol.......of course while being on the set you do not ask the actors or actress for autographs but at times they may speak to you. We are in place to help them with there scenes, in one taping we were asked to get into position so the actor would not be alone. Working on a set is just more demanding for them. Its all about precision and split timing to be on your mark.


Other leading actors in the featured Warner Brothers movie....it will be an epic movie to be released....
Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris, Andy Garcia, Katheryn Winnick.
