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

1 Year Ago

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...

Well no question about it I have been placing mine also on Pixels....the best route is Reserved Licensing......if you have a decent price, then you are in control, and of course the options of how many they can produce, and the length which ever falls first and of course they will want to renew the contract I sure would like to make my first contract sale....I have been doing a few private photo shoots, a digital news magazine locally on line, and getting a few.

You new I made my first sale back in April, 4 from the same buyer, 34 by 20 something very nice large prints.....was I having the buyer from Houston area, and I am upload a new series,,,,,something local and a potential buyer my sister works at Rice University, and a friend has been looking for a particular photo and I took it yesterday and uploading it sometime tonight.......I am aiming for a sale from it.

Hi all,
Michael, the countdown has begun, just a few more days! I'm already looking forward to your photos!

Mary, fingers crossed all goes well in escrow. Sounds like the perfect place. Looking forward to seeing some pictures from you as well!

Jaxine, sounds like you live in a forest! Big trees are beautiful but can quickly become a nightmare during one of our storms.

I've been collecting inspiring quotes for nearly 30 years and the one which has the most meaning for me as an artist is this:

"Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression." ~Isaac Bashevis Singer

Have you ever finished a painting and thought, "yes! It's perfect, just as I imagined!" I'm guessing the answer is 'no'.

But then I'm reminded of this one and then I move onto a new painting.

"I may not have gone where I wanted to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be."

Douglas Adams

Hello Karyn, good seeing you, wow it was great to see Mary, it was so surreal there she was like visiting from out of space and left again, we sure miss her., and Karyn how are your new projects coming along, and John wow what a great CD cover, superior, Bravo, Bravo, Bravo....how nice.and Erica great work good seeing you here as well.

My friend Al arrives Friday here in New Orleans he had not visited since before Hurricane Katrina, so we will get to go out and about, we have agreed to be at the boat noon Monday.....and explore the ship before departure, my first time out of the country and the suite is on the 2nd level at the top, and there is a beautiful deck its a super liner, I have seen if maneuver from dock and I will be on the city side of the boat because it faces up river....but then its powerful side thrusters push it away and then it turns 180 degrees and just about is wide as the Mississippi River turns and heads downstream......

my fried Al worked for the airlines for over 30 years retired now and he gets to travel world wide which he has free, of course its all stand by but he does travel and has pretty much seen the world.....can you imagine that. he told me funny, if he leaves California, oh I may make a layover in Dallas, and then fly to Chicago then New York and then here lol.....he is fortunate, he has traveled Europe, and then takes cruises to all points.....then he also get discount on those cruises.....I did not get his discount but I paid the remainder 230.00 with port and tax fees included....I could not say no, I could not let that opportunity pass me by, because I had check prices prior and it would have been a little bundle if I would have done it myself......


great quotes....

And then today my doctors informed me, I am in perfect health, blood pressure a little high I have always and baffled the doctors, they would say Mr. Hoard you are blood pressure is above the normal blood pressure which I think is 124 over 70 something,,,,well its 130 or 80 and they would like the lower number...I had even been at in the 65 to 70 but I am still in remission and do not need to go back until 6 months.....woooooooo hooooooo, I had been there times over.....and each time the extension gets longer. My sister first born a son, he has been in remission now for 25 years he was near death and his body fought and with the treatments he pulled out, he was born with it as well as myself, lymphoma I have a great outlook on my life, when I found out, my doctors were a bit taken of my inner acceptance, I could not alter the past and ponder why or what if, or was it from my dad's side or mothers side of the family, I was going to alter my future myself, and have been doing just that now for the past 6 years.....so I continue receiving the good news check up after check up this is the longest period I have gone through, after hearing the great news today, I do have a great future ahead of me and I am thankful....my body took care of a brain tumor it calcified, last year a mass on my kidney went in for the surgery it was gone, after that I was riding my bike in less than a week...no side effects. I do not think about anything, I may write it but think nothing of it in my head, .and living each day as my first. And yes, I have had pain like none other, and each time instead of taking a pain killer, I go to this place inner place and able to control it and continue normal things without the pain.

Yay, Michael, what wonderful news! Attitude is everything! I wish that could be impressed upon children. How sad to go through life bitter, or sad or angry. Whenever I get upset or frustrated I turn it around and find something to for which to be grateful. Not always easy, but it puts my brain in a healthy and usually happier frame of mind.

 

Michael Hoard

5 Days Ago

Karyn you are correct, and yes it is sad and yes some go through life bitter, or sad or angry, and then you have the fighters as well the ones show no signs of that, or emotionless and though sick from the chemo, and meds, they have this courage and they pull through. In other words the moment you have self pitty I think that is the correct way of putting it, then the energy is zapped from you......its like a void, inside, I have talked it over to my doctors and they reconfirm its ok.....and they say what ever it is I do follow and stay tuned to it......I have always agreed with myself the more you give the more you shall receive....its something like that......

I do know if I am anywhere near someone who may give off this neg. energy, I move along and there have been times where I confront them and somehow change it......I do not understand what it is or how I do it but it happens, I can actually sense it, and sometime I will even come right out and tell them and then it changes, its weird to explain.....exactly Karyn, you got it, I think when I come across in real life individuals like that I can actually get them to believe it themselves....does that make sense..

Recently a friend informed me Michael, this is so odd, a friend of his called to invite him over for dinner party, a friend of his in the family has skin cancer, and my friend Bill said what, what, am I suppose to bring something, and they had this dinner party, I told Bill its a good thing I was not invited, I would have had to speak about something, ....about throwing the party in the first place....oh hello everyone invited over because David here is terminal....let the person who is terminal throw the party,,,,,I told my friend Bill could you hear the pins dropping to the floor, as a joke I would have brought nails and dropped them to the floor...opps was that a pin or a nail head lol....lol.

A story here locally which made world wide news was a man who for Jazz Festival this year wanted everyone he ever new of him along his journey in life join him and he hosted his very own wake sent out invitations, Imagine that I thought wow I would have loved to have known him as a friend and after hearing his story and his fight against cancer. After hearing his story though I did not know him I felt as if I new him my entire life. Just recently he lost his battle and passed forward to the next journey.

If you look at it this way its very clear, the moment we exist we have purpose does not matter who you are where you are from or if you were evil or kind, each and everyone of has a purpose what people seem to forget is the obvious we are born to live life but then along the way life passes you by our existence here on earth resolves comes to an end but our memory will live forever to those who are left behind, regardless if it were minutes or died of cancer or a horrific death every living thing in this great cosmos has a purpose with or without the answers.

John !!!!!! yea!!!!!! that is so cool. You must be so proud. I would pass out to see one of my paintings on a CD or any thing. WOW!!!!!

Michael, you are the most positive person I know. I'm so excited for you and your friend. you will have a glorious time. You are the type of
person I would love to travel with. My Mother was a lot like you. She had Rheumatoid Arthritis since her 30th year, so all her bones were wasting away in her later years.
She never complained. she lived to be 83 and could not use her arms or legs but such a radiant smile. I took care of her for many years and found a new art career
thanks to her. She never had a day with out pain, but gave such joy to her family. She was an athlete in her younger years, a professional roller skater and skate dancer
I remember we would travel to so many roller rinks in Cal. during the second war. She would be booked to do a show at the different rinks. I was 5 and I was in the act also.
Mom taught us to skate very early at age 4 and 5. My Brother and I loved it. She was so positive.
Have a wonderful time my friend.

Karyn, it feels like a forest when the storms come. We have a small place but big enough for the two of us. Don't want a lot of house work but love yard work lol.

Mary, So good to hear from you. Sound like every thing is percolating fne. In Sept you can get back to your books and art again. Will you have a place to keep your paints
out and ready to paint at a minutes notice. every artist needs a little corner for them selves.

Erica very nice. I'm going the check out your gallery later today. Welcome to the million views

My painting in pastel, The city of Glendale Az. bought this one and it hangs in a court room. Don't ask me why they have it there.

@Erica, Time Flies how true, how true, wonderful composition colors....great gallery by the way.

Jaxinne wow everyone has been having some great things occurring, you are next in line. and Karyln .....here is something new I posted I spoke to my sister in Houston and a friend of hers want a photo of one of these rare now cast iron water meter covers.....so many of them have been removed on some blocks you best be careful the sidewalk looks like craters. Congrats to everyone, and Jaxinne you are radiant as well and a pleasure to be associated with you and everyone. Your story of your childhood and mother is so amazing to hear, and as you took care of your mother, mine did the same for her and her sister, and so many others who become the caregivers.

I believe Michael makes the most of any situation, Jaxine. I can't wait to hear his stories and see the pics! Another busy week at work coming up, plus the roofer is coming to check out the roof for damage tomorrow.

Here's a little quickie I found time to paint over the weekend. Longing for a more leisurely painting experience soon!

Cheers to all!

I could have been painting during the last hour so I really hope the time spent in doing this pays a dividend someday!

Keep inspired, y'all!
