You can see Boran2's artwork even as it's in process. Every time he's working on a new one, he posts that week's version, and talks a little bit about how he's going from blank canvas to framed canvas. I particularly like the very newest one that he finished just last week. The colors are so rich and the depth is amazing. These are small works, mind you--about 8 x 10 inches, and yet look how it gives the impression of being a large painting . Several of us have been following his art "lessons" ever since he first started trying his hand at "painting in public." It is exciting to watch his talent develop and his skill increase. He'll be starting a new one soon, and I'm eager to see what the subject will be. (If you'd like to see his "first drafts" of the one above, to compare with this finished piece, you'll find the weekly installments on his blog.)

Our talented friends
The other day I mentioned that I was going to see Katiebird's photo exhibit. You won't be surprised to hear that it's wonderful! All six framed photos are displayed on a wall of a library that sits at the edge of a county lake. Kb's artwork looks splendid hanging there. Five of her photos in the exhibit are of New York City and San Francisco, which makes them an interesting sharp-edged urban counterpoint to the natural setting. She has a great eye for angle, drama, and light.
