I was a painter...

I was a painter...

No...not art. Cars. I painted cars for a living when I was a kid. One of the things I remember about body men and painters is that while they worked on cars all day, their personal vehicles were generally pieces of junk. Wrecked fenders, unprimed bondo, unpainted primer, etc. My point is that this journal is the same way. Neglected. Best would be to catch me over at Ultra-Fractal (https://www.deviantart.com/ultra-fractal). The group is going strong, gallery updated regularly so you can see what emerging and veteran UF'ers are doing, plus always have a contest or something going on. So....while this journal might not get updated regularly, I am certainly around. Note me if you

Current haps... 1) Still have work showing at two galleries on the Gulf Coast: Orange Beach Art Center (Orange Beach, AL) and Rick Tino's Gallery (Gulf Shores, AL). Sales are slow at the art center...I think the main reason is that I have the only digital art showing and the visitors are not receiving it very well. The perception might be that if it isn't done with a brush, it isn't art. But we'll see how it goes. Rick's gallery is another story. His clientele is a little more hip, lol... I also have some pieces at a local office supply store, and I am going next week to talk to the Hattiesburg Visitors Center about placing a few pieces th

Man...how 'bout I take some time and update my journal? Ok..current haps... 1) Doing the admin thingy at *Ultra-Fractal Group. 2) Just started Janet Parke's third UF class - Ultra Fractal Artistry over at Visual Arts Academy. 3) Getting my butt kicked by *denise-g in chess. 4) Working on getting my own site up and running. 5) Getting ready for a local arts and crafts festival - I think sales will be fair...not great, but looking for decent. 6) Wishing my brother *HorseLips would start printing some of his stuff: :thumb29354757: :thumb28948235: :thumb26865004: :thumb25427435: 7) Slowly but surely developing my UF skills... 8) Just t

Ok...I know...been a few weeks since I've submitted a frac. But y'all know how it is...busy, busy, busy. I'm doing a few studies right now that I feel will help me be a better frac artist. We'll see how it goes with upcoming submissions. And just because I haven't submitted lately doesn't mean that I'm not watching. So y'all keep up the good work...

Wow...and again I say, WOW!!!!! What a...it's really hard to find the words...a killer storm, a tragedy... I live in southern MS about 90 miles north of Biloxi. We had sustained 70 winds with 90 mile an hour gusts. A lot...a LOT of devastation. And the situation is really getting kinda desparate. We have food and water, and I am one of the few miraculaously blessed folks in my community that have just got their power back. My line runs off of a line that the local radio station is on, and they are trying hard to get power to it, so I am just in the right spot. One thing though is that the State has commandeered the gas supplies, so what we

Ok...

Well...I got runner up in the July contest at *Ultra-Fractal. It was my first contest and I learned a BUUUUUNCH!!!!. The other entries were very good. I have a long way to go with UF...but I WILL get there. Meanwhile... I'm continuing to work on my UF skills... I feel with "Fractured" that I truly have an understanding of working with masks...double masks, reverse masks, etc. Currently studying different coloring methods...along the lines of this: Dan Kuzmenka I LOVE the coloring and texturing that he is doing... Drop by some time...say "hey" or something....

WHEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
