Earth Again!


I have been quite absent from my blog this week but I just got back from a trip to McAllen, Texas. My husband bought me a very, far in advance, birthday present but we probably won't get up there again before the end of the year. He bought me a Nikon D50 Digital Camera. The shutter speed is so much faster than the Canon Power-Shot I have. Hope this will improve the quality of the pictures I take of my paintings. I haven't been able to do much painting either since my two grandsons are visiting from Sonora. Although, I did get a quick experimental painting in this afternoon and hope to get some larger one's done this week.

Just love what you have been expressing lately Mary. Keep 'em coming. Congratulations on your early present. I am sure you will enjoy it.

Thank you Robin, and I am dying to here about your visit with Anita and Judi.

Fabulous to get a new camera, I know you'll be busy with it.

Your paintings are so lovely, the colours always appeal to me.

WOWOWOWOWOWO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mariana I love this one and the texture is great.

What a wonderful nice birthday present. Early, but I am sure well needed and deserved. Hubby did a fabulous thing. He gets very very many brownie points for this one. :) Is this photo taken with your new digital?

Congratulations! for your new camera! Now you have to use it lots more than the other one. It's a good present, for your birthday! I like very much the photograph of Mango on his chair in your desk?

Thank you Jeanette, Paula and Leonor. Yes, I took this one with the new digital but I have to read the instruction booklet to use it right.

I should have scrolled down before I commented above...you are really painting some wonderful works. I love the textures and the richness of the paintings.

How fun to have a new toy! Happy very early birthday then!
