Fun With Rusty Wrecks And Derelict Houses

This is my 100th post on the DPs. I like this painting so thats what you get. Its painted on the back of another painting with opaque w/c-so everything was agin me from the start. I enjoyed the challenge of using materials that were less than Grade A. I have also enjoyed the comments and my new cyber- friends. I have not had a serious offer for a painting yet (from the DPs). Good thing I have actually sold paintings in real life for substantial prices or I would be quite discouraged. I wish more people would comment all over the blogosphere cuz if you ain't going to sell you may as well chat. Thanks Everybody! Beware "I.E.D."

Hey, this is nice. Looks like it had just rained and the storm clouds are starting to part. Everything is still wet. The birds are chirping, the bees are buzzing.

Oh, and I like the old truck by the building. Nicely done.

Great painting Ron. Bike - no peddlers... I love it!

But now you have me curious, what's on the back side?

Ron Morrison said...

Ron take a bow - WoW... 100 a centenarian! You have been a good friend on this journey..started back in early Nov. for me. You had the idea of the no to ohs campaign - and it has blossomed. I don't want to wax sappy ... but a milestone has been crossed. Now what!... ? haa - we'll see .. we'll see. BTW nice 100 post painting! Has all the elements painters are supposed to be aware of covered. Shall we go down the list... nah.. Congratulations!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks W.K., we've had fun haven't we!? I've got ol Milford's blog up, but I can't comment as Milford yet.

Somewhere along the line I became Ron Morrison- by accident.

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Of course you became Ron Morrison by accident. We fall short with intentions.

But what's intriguing is that becoming Ron Morrison was only accidental to you.

Ron Morrison said...

Yikes, were's my magic decoder ring. My mom said it wasn't a accident, that she planned me.

Congratulations on the 100 mark my friend! One 100 is a favorite of mine, just changed my identity picture & my quote of the day is "I'm 100 and bored" from the movie La Lectrice. Magic decoder ring in gear, this painting rocks!(can't believe the coincidence as my next quote will be from Woody Allen's Radio Days about his magic decoder ring. Another blog? I'd better search around to find it.) too much coincidence. Yup I agree, if nobody wants to buy, let's do our coffee clutch. At least we are alive and well and talking.

Remember, Michele, I have E.S.P.(Entirely Stupid Puns).
