So, without further ado, here it is.....

Barbara Sailor, I decided that yesterday afternoon was the time to play with Yupo again. I had such a good time playing with this stuff, as usual. I started with a vague idea to create the upper landscape with buttes and then using strata format to create whatever was below. When I say whatever, I really mean whatever since I had no idea what it was going to do and just went in with splashing paint and let 'er rip. I began to see something different emerge, so went with cliff dwellings in the mid ground and a stylized landscape in the foreground. I still have quite a bit I want to do with this, including setting back some of the dwellings and changing their sizes to be less uniform (right now they remind me of a mouthful of teeth!). I also have to resolve that unfortunate shape in the upper right quadrant and make it into something more believable than it is now. I have in mind what I will do up there but we will see if the paint and brush really wants me to do what I am thinking. That's the beauty and the curse of Yupo!

I like the water and foreground, though, much better than the rendition I did last year of this scene. Now, on to my next painting adventure/victim.

Since we live on the desert, it doesn't take that long to get out among the Saguaros, and we enjoyed it. Alas, we had missed whatever wildflowers were there earlier, but the cholla were certainly abundant and very plump at this time. Their soft fuzziness is extremely deceptive, I have come into contact with this soft fuzziness twice in my life and regretted it mightily both times!
