"Tomato Behind Leaves"

Click Here to Bid

I don't know what has happened to Blogger. It was down for a long while. Thank God it comes back. When you deal with computers and the Internet, please remember: no matter how powerful and convenient these tools seem to you, They are the most UNRELIABLE tools. If you want to have a good life, please set your foundation on something else. Do not worship technology, because the main purpose of technology is to make a small group of people rich. Providing convenience and enjoyment is quite secondary. If you were addicted to technology, you were doomed. If the world is addicted to technology.... I stop here. I have been working in high tech all my life. I do learn something.

I did another leaf painting. I am not addicted to leaves. I do this because I see a tangible way to bring my art to the next level. I really appreciate many people's compliment to my work, and I will continue sharing artistic enjoyment with you. However, I am not a master. I just like to paint.

I love your paintings of leaves. It is odd how challenging it is to do a real good leaf. I especially like the backside of that one.

I agree with your thoughts on technology. I couldn't post on Blogger yesterday.

I love your leaves, especially the one in front and the one that drifts off into the background.

This painting has so much personality. Feel like the tomato is playing hide and go seek. That is what we should be doing instead of looking at our computers. I might be too old to play hide and go seek.

Everything you say about technology is so true! I do all my work on the computer now; I spend 8 and 9 hours a day in front of it. I feel like I've lost a lot since the days when I used a drawing board, pens, french curves, erasers... things that you touch with your hands. Think of all the sensory feedback we get from doing things manually: the smell of paint, the sound of the brush on the canvas, etc. That's why I've taken up painting, to return to using my hands as well as my mind to create something.

There is a grand manner in which you paint! It makes me want to work harder. Your sharpness yet at the same time easy of your work is captivating.
