Some New Small Ones ~ I've been painting some ACEO size ones this week. These are acrylics on watercolor paper.
Did you ever wonder what it would feel like to ride in one of the Navy's Blue Angel jets?! I was visiting my family website today and found this awesome link which made me very sure I would never, ever want to ride in one. The reporter that has the camera on him passed out three times! eeek, let me out of this thing. I actually got dizzy just watching the video! The link is below:
blue angels



Must say I like your new paintings MUCH more than the video!
Especially lovin' the new style you're doing with the landscapes. They are ALL great,,,they always are,,,but that last one is fantastic!
Carry on!


Now that I'm looking again,,I really am knocked out by that second one too,,,,awesome layering!
So much in these tiny little spaces,,on first look they seem minimal,,,but looking closer & discovering all the layering is really cool!

Thanks Babs! :D LOL, I don't think they could get me in one of those jets in a million years, OMG I got dizzy just watching it. No more fast planes or cars in my posts from now on, just art! Arrgh, still no Wetcanvas tonight!


HAHAHHAHAAHHA I'm with you on those jets! (but it was interesting!)
Yeah, I've been back to check on The Canvas too,,,,,,,dang!

LOL I felt so sorry for that guy taking the ride, he was really chomping that gum and trying to act tough! Ugh, what a ride LOLOL! Those pilots are really awesome though. I know I miss WC booohooo!!!

Hi Lynnie, I miss WC too, I think I'm starting to feel withdrawal symptoms 8-O

Love those ACEOs, especially the second one with the watercolor look!

Kim said...

Lynnette! Whoa! No, that is not for me, either! While I love to fly, not that way!

I really like these paintings and only one with a tree? Wow! I love the moon ones! I am with Babs on the layers!

Very cool! Hey, did you ever decide about the tiny brush set or the squeezy bottles with the tips? I am just curious. My son is considering the brush set for himself.

WOW! That video is wonderful. Thanks for sharing it with us!
I absolutely LOVE your new aceo's! :)

Lynette said...

Thanks Flo! WC has been up this morning but it keeps going 'in and out'. I think they are doing some kind of maintenance on the site.
Kim thanks so much for the link on the brushes and squeeze bottles. Yes I am planning on ordering something but was waiting till I get my funds up some more in the credit card. I like the idea of the squeeze bottles! I painted a tree ACEO last night. :)
Hi Angela, I thought that video was so neat but wow what a ride! :o Thanks for the nice words on these!

I like the moon series.

I kept on thinking that guy was going to choke on his gum in the video when he would pass out!

Lynette said...

Thanks Janet and LOL you are right, that poor guy was making some awful faces too when the jet went almost the speed of sound!

Kim said...

I hear you Lynnette! I am also waiting, but want to get my order in by the end of the month as the sale ends then (and I have a $20 coupon to use)!

I just thought I would see if you like them.

Are you working on more moons?
