My niece, Cara, posted a photo from the Colfax Marathon the other day on Facebook, and I liked it for the sky and water. There was a small patch of blue showing thru the clouds, so nice. So this is a practice piece, to see me back into my well-loved oil paints once again.

Help (Maybe) from Google Groups

This is a classic example of a "Catch 22."
Some people have written to me, or mentioned in person, that they aren't getting my posted emails anymore.
I've had people asking me what can be done, they've suddenly been dropped, though when I check, there they are on the group list.

I posted about my problem on the google help forum this morning, and looks like I'm not the only one having this problem. I was going to put the reply from Google into my daily email, but then I realized that the folks not getting emails are the very ones who would need to SEE this email. Catch 22.

So here's the reply I have gotten from Google Groups. 
I'll refer people to this post when I hear that you're getting no email from me.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm not receiving my group's emails

If you've stopped getting email from your group, you may have changed your subscription option to "Web only." To start receiving email again, go to the group's homepage, click the "My Settings" button, (Note from Nel: the settings button should be at the top right, it has a little person and a round gear) and then click "Membership and Email settings." There, you'll see your current subscription settings for this group; make sure you haven't selected the "No email" option. Make changes if you need to, and then click the "Save these settings" button.
It's also possible that the emails are getting caught by your system's spam or bulk mail filter. If you know your subscription settings are correct, you may want to check your spam or bulk folders to see if the emails are there.
Another option is that your email service provider is blocking all mail from Google Groups. We work with email service providers to remove blocks as they occur. When a block is lifted, all of the mail that was held during the block will be delivered, so you may see a surge of email. Please note that email blocks for some service providers occur frequently. We are working on methods of preventing these blocks and resolving them more quickly in the future. We appreciate your patience during a block.
A final suggestion you may want to try is to subscribe to this group using a different email account. We suggest using an email account hosted by an alternate provider, as this problem may be related to your current email service provider.

------------------------------------------------------------------

And here's a link to the homepage, so you can check on your "settings", or just write to me, and I'll check for you. Homepage

or write to me at NelVanL@aol.com

I really hope this will help. I'm not sure what else I can do.

I had to google how to spell "lilies". It felt like it wanted two l's.
Anyway, there guys are from "my" food bank, leftovers with bunches of other flowers, from Mom's Day. Lucky me! I've also had pink tulips all week.

I liked the complicated look of my reference photo for this one, makes for an interesting painting, I think.
Of course there was a lot of editing, and adjustments. I do like how this one came out.

Shaded - SOLD

Shaded
Gouache on Canvas Panel, 16" x 12"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.

Another Gouache painting. This time I followed loosely the step-by-step on the Ralph Parker blog, to see exactly how he paints in Gouache. Because it's a copy, I'm not putting it up on DPW, even though I changed
some things, and I'm asking only the replacement of my materials (as always) and not my time.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms!
I enjoyed doing the Reflections painting so much yesterday, that after church I decided to do it again.
It's a bit different, but I like this one too.

I was reading thru Ralph Parker's blog this morning, and he uses Gouache with both watercolor and oil style techniques. Figured that I'd try it, and on canvas, this technique is much better. In some places (the reflections) I've left the look of the thin watercolor application, and in the rest of the painting, I've used a more opaque application, like oils. AND bristle brushes instead of the watercolor brushes. Ah, much better. Isn't this a nice one?

I thought I'd try a gouache on the canvas, see how it worked. The blending is more tricky than on paper, maybe because of the canvas weave texture? I'm not sure. I do like being able to paint in the background.

What actually is nice about acrylics is that you can layer and layer, and layer, though you really can't blend anything much. This one has lots of layers.

I knew there was a reason I kept a bunch of tubes of Acrylics. You just never know.
I still have to work on subtle colors, since Acrylics tend to be very bright. Tricky ti mix correctly, I think.

I wanted to see how well I could do without white paint. Really, no white at all.
I do have a pale blue grey tube paint that I've used in place of the white.

This one was interesting to paint, since I ran out of white paint half way thru, and had to do my lightening with a tube of pale blue grey. Thankfully I had the sky and the water done with the little bit of white I still had.

Don't you love seeing all the blossoming trees along the road? Right now the Red Buds are out, and they are so delicate and beautiful (though this isn't a Red Bud.)  I like the Red Maple behind the cherry in this one.
