Greg 'n Keetha Stuff

OK, let's be honest. This is really KEETHA stuff. Sometimes I write about Greg - - - but he has never in his life made one single post of his own. He has occasionally made a comment or two. So - - - come on in and visit with me, Keetha, for a while. I'd love it if you left your foot prints. (Interpretation: COMMENT PLEASE ;-)

Do You Remember The Saying - - -


"There's more than corn in Indiana?"

Well - - - there's also more than Ole in Greg. There's also Ross, as in Bob Ross. Yesterday Ross returned after years of "sabbatical."

Unfortunately my photos do NOT do his work justice. There is much more richness of both color and texture in his paintings than what these pictures indicate.


Mixing paints on his palette with a medium sized brush.


Sketching in details with a tiny brush.


Softening and adding reflections with a large brush.

This technique also uses knives and fan shaped brushes to add texture and detail.

What do you think about the Patriots winning?

I am EXUBERANT over the Patriots winning. 1) We get to play them in OUR BACK YARD!!! 2) We've played them - - - and beaten them - - - this year. 3) I think we will stand up better to them than to the Chargers 4) Peyton seems to have gotten somewhat over his Patriotaphobia

I am excited now - - - - if our defense will just keep STANDING UP like they've been doing - - - -

I HOPE the pundits keep bad mouthing us - - - - seems to me that has given us the motivation to prove them wrong.

GO COLTS!!!!!!
