Wow, Rick Nilson left a comment on my blog. When I read that I felt as giddy as when I got to go to my first rock concert. Seriously! There are some artists whose blogs I follow on a daily basis because I can't wait to see what they do next. His is one of those blogs. Thank you, you made my day.

I'm still working on learning cropping and photo shopping so this may lean toward the red a little but it's fairly accurate though the water is actually darker than it looks here. My guy and I love the beach and one of the things I enjoy is taking pictures of people and their dogs as they walk on the beach or play in the surf. I do tend to take the picture with the dog's perspective in mind.

I also would like to thank the wonderful artist Carolyn Finnell, who started the Daily Painter Originals website, for taking the time from her very busy life to answer some questions from a person just starting to put their toes in the art/blogging pool. Thank you so much for your time and very helpful advice.

Here is my first attempt at posting a painting. I need to figure out how one takes a picture of an oil painting.The shiny surface presents a problem and learning how you crop it to post it presents a challenge as well. If you have any pointers on either subject I'd be happy to hear your advice. Sorry for the quality, but I will figure this out! I sure hope this gets easier and that I get better. I don't suppose it's any surprise after 15 years in a gray cubical that birds in flight would appeal to me. Watching them in the air is liberating and breath taking.
Okay, I'm new at this and I still have a great deal of "stuff" to figure out about blogging. Hopefully, I will figure out how to attach a picture and post a painting and go from there. The format may change greatly as I look at what works and what does not. Wish me luck, I'll need it, you'll never meet a more technically challenged person. Let the fun begin!
