Hit by Truck

Just moved to New Zealand from Brazil. Went out for a paint, got hit by a truck. Didn`t get hurt, got up and went and painted, despite the bruises. Can`t find work here in New Zealand.  I am an English teacher, so I might have to move overseas again.  I am looking, planning, kinda thinking of an adventure somewhere. A long walk. I think I would like to go plein-air painting for a year, somewhere remote. In the back blocks, alone, where I can meditate, paint and read. Mmmm write too perhaps.…

My trip to China May 2015

Entering a Daizu village and having several buckets of water suddenly thrown over you (a form of friendly welcome during their "pour water" festival apparently!), then sheltering from torrential rain in a shrine just outside the village gates where the ghosts go to sleep at night, while the village children teach you their local dances, was all part of the experience of teaching the kids art at Longlin village in Xishuangbanna, China.…

Adventures at Hook with Thelma and Louise!!!

Well folks you may have guessed by now that I have a little camper van, an R V to my American friends. Last week I went to Hook Head for a couple of days with Thelma, my camper van, to paint.

I have gotten a tad more organised lately, and I load up my pochade before I even get got the vehicle, saves time and procrastination when I arrive at my painting spot!

Weather was fantastic when I arrived at around ten am. I got painting right away and had made my first painting by noon.

I… Continue

Packing and Transporting Painting Materials for Travel

JEANEAN’S TIPS ON TRAVELLING WITH ART SUPPLIES, OIL PAINTS 

 

I carry an empty half-sized french easel in a nylon backpack that also holds my sketchbook and a few pencils. I have a canvas satchel or a rolling backpack that holds panels and pre-cut flat pieces of linen that I carry in a makeshift portfolio out of thin foamcore. I tape the piece of linen to the backside of the board when I…

Hello folks

  This is by way of an apology. I stumbled across this site while researching something else, and happen to know one of your members, so signed up to take a better look. I am not an artist, I am an outdoor photographer, thus I really do not belong here. I have no idea how to "unsubscribe", so I'm hoping your web master will remove all evidence of my trespassing.

   Once again, I apologize....

Dry-spell?

It has been over a year since I did my last Blog Post about how I broke through my dry spell... well not so fast. It would seem, with some embarrassment, that I am in an extended dry spell. I guess it was bound to happen, as my health got worse and I am stuck with oxygen bottles to lug around. But you say what? You thought I took an oxygen machine with me to Ireland a few years back, it's true. But my breathing was not as bad as it is today. I am getting winded just walking to the bathroom.…

How to upload or change your photo

First I recommend you make your photo 185 pixels square and save as a .jpeg, .png or .gif file. If the photo is not square you can upload it and crop in the program but make sure the size is under 10MB. Be patient if your photo is big it may take some time to load.

Put it on your desktop or in a file on your hard drive you can find. Then go to "My Page" and hover over the top of the photo. It will say "Change Photo". Click on it and it…
