turquoise map flowers ...

i finished a four foot by three foot painting yesterday ....
the background is an old, old, old, world map from a national geographic ...
the stems are dictionary ...
the flowers are street maps ....

i have lots of other pictures of the whole process i used to do the painting ... but i'm on a new computer .. and the iphoto is just enough different that it is freaking me out ... i can't figure things out ... it is not as clear cut as my old computer ... well ... maybe it is as clear cut, and i just need someone to explain it to me ..... we'll see .... it took forever to get this one pic up ... which is hard to understand ... since i had no trouble getting the pics up on flickr ... you can see the others over there .... that link will expire the further we get away from today the day of posting ... cause it isn't to the pictures, just to the first page of my flickr site ...

i'm dropping off 18 pieces for a show at the end of the week ... i have other new paintings and such to show you .... so come back soon .... if i spend too long not putting them up, it means my computer is not finding my skills to be satisfactory ....

what have you been working on or working towards lately?

I wondered where you have been. I see now you were hiding behind the map flowers.
