I find a lemon in my freezer who wait from longtime for attention,
he was so perfect when dry that I take a photo and did a painting after it this afternoon.
I used Painter and finished it in ArtRage.

An imaginary island, the short exercise of about one hour,
using textures, the oil brush and pastels.

Pressi di Canelli

Near Santo Stefano Belbo, winter time.

Sad Wine(II)
by Cesare Pavese

The hard thing’s to sit without being noticed.
Everything else will come easy. Three sips
and the impulse returns to sit thinking alone.
Against the buzzing backdrop of noise
everything fades, and it’s suddenly a miracle
to be born and to stare at the glass. And work
(a man who’s alone can’t not think of work)
becomes again the old fate that suffering’s good
for focusing thought. And soon the eyes fix
on nothing particular, grieved, as if blind.

If this man gets up and goes home to sleep,
he’ll look like a blind man that’s lost. Anyone
could jump out of nowhere to brutally beat him.
A woman—beautiful, young—might appear,
and lie under a man in the street, and moan,
the way a woman once moaned under him.
But this man doesn’t see. He heads home to sleep
and life becomes nothing but the buzzing of silence.

Undressing this man you’d find a body that’s wasted
and, here and there, patches of fur. Who’d think,
to look at this man, that life once burned
in his lukewarm veins? No one would guess
that there was a woman, once, who gently touched
that body, who kissed that body, which shakes,
and wet it with tears, now that the man,
having come home to sleep, can’t sleep, only moan.

First experiment with FaceGen ( www.FaceGen.com ),
an very old photo bw, it don't look so much like me but is just
a portrait, I finished it with artrage.


Tryings with impasto oil (the tubes),
brush size: 500 and under,
transforming layers one after the other.

seasons greetings_ the time pass by

If you like it you can have this card, change it as you like, ad a hand text and send it.
I did it simple to let you finish it with the texte and your specific mark.


Our favourite tiger cat for artragers is Tycho.
When you finish your work and go to sleep:
let ArtRage open, press ctrl K ,
leave it runing overnight and surprise in the morning...

This are my two first tryings,
the image is not complete, as I don't sleep much,
we can say that there are a new brush
in here : cat brush or tycho brush, as you like.

Sleeping rocks

Trying to work on oil brush textures I get a somehow rough expression of the sky and the backround but no additional dimmension after that.

It is an imaginary Garden,I did experiment the use of the impasto done by the glitter and the strokes of the oil brush.
I also chose to resise the canvas as layer and give a zooming look to it.
