Crooked Necks Cuddle

I finally got my new digital camera!  After a little research, I decided to get a Canon Powershot; basically what I had before but a newer generation.  It’s got a nice balance of durability and quality images.

Here’s the first painting of my 08 harvest.  I love these little crooked neck squash; they lend themselves so well to personification.

    More squashes! If a vegetable can be cute, they are, in the best way.

    Good camera. Due to peer influence, not pressure, I got the XTi, and it’s too much! Owell! Simplicity is valuable!

    I like the big, bold brush strokes.

    Melissa – Because I take it hiking, it was important to me that my camera be able to take rough and tumble and not be babied, yet still have higher resolution when I want to take photos of my art.

    Bim – Thanks; it’s what I’ve been trying to use more of.

    Tracy- great powerful color use on those squash and the bold shadow colors are terrific.
    Very nice piece.

    Funny enough, I just got a G9 Canon and am amazed at the range of functions it has. To the point of manual madness.
    Have fun experimenting with it. It’s a great camera.

    I haven’t visited in a while- it’s nice to see the wide range of interesting things you write about and paint.

    Thanks Bonnie. Yes, I’m looking forward to actually reading the manual and seeing all it can do.
