My daughter, D2, otherwsie known as Brown-eyed Girl, collects
postcards, so I've been trying to paint one for her at each of my
painting classes. This is the one I painted yesterday. I didn't
think it was all that great, but everyone in class including the
teacher praised it (maybe they were just being nice).
I guess I am getting a *little* better.
The scene was painted from MEMORY, which means it is not accurate. It
represents a church in Piran, Slovenia that is right on the Adriatic
and has these huge columns under it holding it up. The church is
truly lovely, and the columns were very impressive. After I painted
it, I realized there was a wall between the beach and the grass which
I had forgotten about. That's nto the only thing that is different.
But since Piran is an incredibly lovely town, and the church is
fantastic, maybe you should check it out for yourself! I prolly
should post some of the pictures of it, in case you can't go, but I
don't have time right now.

fractals. Made in photoshop from scratch.
The title comes from the delightful book, Piggy Wiglet: "It felt so
good to be a pig that piggy wiglet danced a jig, he tossed his head
and flipped his tail and slipped beneath the bottom rail and trotted
off to have some fun, to play all day and chase the sun." (and so on.)
me, Mary Stebbins Taitt, on Photoshop using various distortions to
attempt to create a fractal without using a fractal program. These
two were both made from the same starting image, which I created from
scratch in photoshop..

I thought this was done when I took a picture of it, but then I painted it some more. You can see the new version here. By the way, all the new additions were made with the same three colors, red, yellow and blue. You can also view the earlier version (smaller) I made in sepia.
