Next print "Biscuits n' Gravy"

Hello everyone,

So here is the next Giclée available. This was such a fun one to do, and has been very popular. You can get more information at fortmeyer@aol.com . It is a watercolor painting, and its size is 14" x 19".

Today has been a beautiful day. The sun is out and practically no breeze at all! My kind of day. I do hate that wind. It not only musses my hair, but sucks all the moisture out of the soil. Since we had to have all that snow this winter, I'd just as soon keep the good moisture we got in the ground!

Today was my next to last physical therapy session. I'll be on my own soon now, and am looking forward to it. Just one more thing I have to remember, or, that interrupts my day.

Right now I'm working on a rose. Have not done a flower in years, and the progress I'm making shows that well. But it is just a lesson, so I don't have to give it undo frustration. Just getting my hand back in.

Time to feed my horses. Gizmo will come a long to help, then he gets his supper too. Hope you all have had a good day today. The next post will be the third print. Till then ... ~J~

Didn't think I'd make it did you?

Okay ... here is one of the three new Giclée prints I have out. The title originally is "First Snow," but could just as easily be "Last Snow of Winter." These antelope are enjoying a respite in the welcome sun. In Colorado, 40° feels like 20° if the sun isn't out. When the sun comes with a 40° day, it feels almost like 60°. That is, of course if there is no wind. Then all bets are off!

The original was watercolor painting and the print is approximately 14" x 19".

Today was art class. I am enjoying learning the words that describe what I have always done naturally. Won't change anything, but it has been an interesting trip for me. I probably won't remember them when I need them. Too many years painting by instinct. But the class is fun and the budding and experienced artists are great company. Nothing like a little competition.

Till next time, this is me signing out ...

I think it's time for me to be back!

Hello everyone! The last I wrote I was in a lot of pain with a knee that needed repair. Turns out it needed total replacement, and that finally took place November 9th. I have just been dismissed by my surgeon, and physical therapy will be over March 10th ... can't say I'll miss that! While I'll keep up the exercises at home now, it is time to move on.

I have some new prints available now and I'll start posting them tomorrow. (Really.) My biggest challenge will come this summer as I illustrate a new Elaine Marlier book, "Christmas Angels." Then next year she is hoping to have another adoption/Without a Home, series book out about horses. I will illustrate that one too, unless she is finally fed up with me. :-) It is going to be a struggle to get any fine art out in and around the illustrations, but I'm sure I'll find a way.

See you all tomorrow.
