she's really good! has she ever thought about book illustration?
It's clear she used that image for the painting, but it does seem more as an inspiration rather than the 'paint by numbers' as provided by AliExpress (whose products are good, at least, I like the socks I got through them) and still, it takes a lot of patience and time to paint, and the end result is applaudable.
Those are lovely. Your wife should carry on painting exactly as she is.
Very, very nice!!
I agree with Hemingway, her painting are lovely. I’d be proud to own any of them.
Please pass along my compliments.
I tried painting for a while, but I could never get use to going up and down ladders all day, even scaffolding made me a little dizzy, it could have been the weed though.
I figured it was just a matter of time before I fell off and broke something so I gave it up.
That analogy that you and others have already made is quite apropos. "But quieter." And darn funny!
As I've said, she's sold a few of her paintings already. But I think she would be happy if she just sold enough to keep herself in paints and canvasses. Again, I relate to that, because although I wouldn't necessarily complain if I made big money by gigging, I'm okay with making enough to cover my hobby. My wife sought input from those in the art community as to how to price her work, but for the most part she cut those prices in half.
Oh, and about the painting of something tele, she's working on a painting of this pic of me and my Logan Custom BSB. Actually, not the whole photograph. Thankfully, she's keeping my ugly mug out of it, just doing a close-up on my hands and the guitar.
My wife doesn't really even consider herself an artist, but she messes around and anything she touches comes alive.
She's been messing with needle felting.
Basically, sticking bits of colored wool to an old blanket.
This one is about 4x5 feet.
It's where we live.
There's no indication that she or @LGOberean were trying to pass that off as an original. I think it's a study piece. Even our illustrious TDPRI painter @hemingway posts studies of famous paintings he's done along with his originals. I don't think there's any attempt here to be deceptive.
The first time I saw that TV art instructor (Bob Ross) is when I realized that painters didn't actually "draw" trees or mountains but rather created them with well thought out dabs and colors; kind of like a smack in the forehead moment. That was over 30 years ago and I've yet to attempt any painting. I used to rarely/would sketch photos from album covers/magazines and somebody would always want it but they were few and far between.
Maybe I can go the You Tube route like the youngsters do with guitar lessons. Maybe be a 63 year old prodigy or, maybe not!
Nice!,the artwork and the home. Are they beef cattle or milkers? When I was on the farm we had what we called "whiteface" beef cattle witch are generally brown 'cept for their face. They're not a lot of work until you want to get 'em in a trailer or try to give 'em an injection: then it's game on.
Painting is good, I like the last one of tree tops, makes a good feeling looking up into it.
My wife paints too, though she went to art school and intended it to be a career, sold stuff in galleries etc.
We both find whatever it is that people need besides food and shelter, in our creative outlets, and she puts up with my electric guitar, even claiming to enjoy it.
I really process my taking in of the world through my guitar, and it conveys into the home and my wife's well being.
I know her painting is an important part of my core wellness.
Lots of us here play guitar just for our own enjoyment, as well as playing songs we didn't write.
With so much crap in the world it's nice and maybe even important to do things just for the good of it!
Beautiful work. What a great god-given Talent. Good for her. I admire her skills as a painter it takes a special person to do what she does for a living God bless her.
Great talent - thanks for sharing her work .
Bravo!!! A very good talent and I appreciate her work. As she does more please post them.
It’s a nice light in these dark times
Thank you for sharing. She has a unique and lovely way of expressing herself through the paints.
There are about 100 here...all mixed up...Jersey, Brown Swiss, mashups...calves, heifers, and about 30 milkers.
Interesting none the less, and maybe takes some of the mystery out of painting.
I could maybe play an SRV tune, but you might not recognize it!
We read comments like "talented" and "creative"; but if applied to us guitar players we point out that it's more sweat equity.
Pretty good chance Larry's wife works at what she does, rather than is one of those mysterious folks born with talent and creativity.
I think hard work is as legit as natural talent, but oddly it seems to sound like less of a compliment.
Why is something you're born with more to your credit than something you worked to cultivate?
I can draw, and pretty well, but because I don't work at it I suck at it.
Jerry Garcia and Miles Davis painted as a hobby.
Jerry is quoted as saying: "Find something you love to do, then do it".
If every damn person on earth got busy doing things they really loved?
What a mob of love we would live in!
But nope, folks do what they're told, what the need to do to survive, what they think they can get away with, and what will make money.
