    New Idea self-portrait I guess,

    The lessons continue and I am getting excited to go back and experiment more with colors.

    It's late in Amsterdam the rain as stopped, tomorrow I'm baby sitting early in the morning must get up by 7.

    It is not to bad, I love the kid.

    And maybe I will get to that Rhythm of not sleeping to late.


    I'm happy with the kind of pop art look the new idea is turning to.

    The first idea was to make a painting of Maria Callas , I know "why"?

    I will call him "Boneco" Portuguese word.

    More next week.

    My fourth lesson 


    It is finished, I decided that I don't want to do more to the painting

    I want to start something new.

     Lessons take time, and time is even more scarce than ability in my case.

    I enjoyed my four lessons, once a week for two hours my mind stops and thinks.

    Now that the first idea is finished the next new idea can come to the front.

    To be honest, I am confused and sometimes have no idea what to do next.

    But I will soldier on.

    My plan was to work more on watercolors at home.

    But with everything else happening around me, and time again being Scarce.

    We will see what happens next.

    Another week goes by, the rain and the cold are all over Amsterdam.

    The birds have flown down south or north and the trees decided to go to sleep.

    It's time for Autumn the season of gold orange brown yellow red purple green white and black.

    CATS are fighting MARIA is singing as she does always when I'm a little down WHY am I a bit down I have no idea WHY? I just do 

    So it is a good time to work on a new idea 

    The air is kind and the COLORS are truly AUTUMN COLORS

    I went by an art shop in AMSTERDAM

    Got something called Gesso universal primer

    Couleurs Fines a L'huile ou Óleos Finos CORES TRADICIONAIS para PINTURA A ÓLEO PIGMENTACION consistency so many things to remember 

    And I forgot the turpentine so I can't mix the colors 

    I will make a SKETCH of an IDEA then use that as the FIRST STEP

    I'm not so stoned any more NICE

    The cats are friends again bound by the love of a candy treat 

    TIME for me to close the CURTAINS to the world and MEDITATE with Maria

    Something will happen eventually 

    Have a good CLEARING of the SPACE around me try not to have so many plants video tapes does anybody still use them?

    It is Saturday and the sun is out nice and warm

    I'm keeping to the WATERCOLORS for the time

    I still have a PROBLEM with OIL PAINT more complicated than I thought but it does not matter

    I'm still enjoying it very much NICE.

    It was my first oil painting lesson today

    I will be going every wednesday for 2 hours to a group painting lesson

    I want to try and understand the process of creating an image an idea on canvas 

    The cold weather as arrived in Amsterdam " Gaivota " is starting her winter sleep 

    So now is a good time to start a new thought' an idea

    First I was asked to choose an image 

    As soon as I saw an image of a painting by Karel Appel Karel Appel http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karel_Appel

    The simplicity and almost infantile way of painting the bold colors appealed to me 

    I'm excited and can't wait for the next lesson
