"Oh Gala!"

Oh Gala, apple number 59, I may need to revisit you tomorrow. Looks like a big hole on the right side! For some reason I had a hard time with this one... Oh Gala...

I couldn't help myself, there is a small "59" on this painting. I'm kind of liking the idea of the paintings having their distinguishing number on the front instead of the back of the surface.

Because of the ice storm we are having, I didn't leave the house today. I worked instead on learning how to edit the painting video I made last week. Little by little I'm learning iMovie. This movie is a long at 15 minutes. I hope to figure out how to speed up the movie next. This time I learned to put a title and music to the movie.... Oh Gala!

Crazy day....

59 sounds a lot closer to 100 than 57. how come? remember what you said about making the martini round the other day? is that what your 'hole, needs. although i must say that i didn't notice it until you said it.

130 am checking the weather---too tired to watch the video now. i'll comment later......what program did you use to make the first video????

Good Morning leigh, I used iMovie, but it was my very, very first one. I pretty much forgot how I did it! And it had no extras, like added music or titles. : ) Still trying to figure out how to make it go fast speed...

Thanks Cathleen!

the art of the dance is like chocolate said...

wonderful apple! i also love the blue against the white background. i loved the video! 'how did this happen all up in there?' i loved watching the process of doing an abstract painting. i bought a video camera about two years ago - and have never used it! now i think i might! thanks for the inspiration!

Love visiting your daily paintings and just watched the video! It was great! It's so much fun seeing another artist at work. Especially when it's totally abstract. Looking forward to more paintings and hopefully more videos! :)
