This is really something. The drops are out of this world. Do you have a blog or website or Pinterest account?
Em Gee - Over 30 days ago
Thanks Eve......that one is in San Diego....and no blog or website....Just a photography site that I have been absent fro for most of this year.http://www.flickr.com/photos/emphotos103/
Paper Doll Eve - Over 30 days ago
Em your Flickr is wonderful. You're one of my contacts now. I hadn't been there in such a long time everything is different.
Em Gee - Over 30 days ago
Thanks Eve, Me too and the BIG change had just happened !! I shall always love photography and the fabulous people I befriended over the years. They are used to me vanishing and reappearing sometimes years later..lol...It is full resoluton photos now on flickr, great for landline but I am on a wifi with 6gbte a month useage max which is way too small to cope with loading all that data of hi/res photos!!....Opened it up the otherday and the megs started high speed running, so shut it down and it is a no go until I decide to go the other way. I am on laptop so this suits my lifestyle right now,, and here on Freelancer is a much lighter load and I love all the artists and their fabulous artworks, styles and inspirations and the wonderful Spirits:))

Nate Flanigan - Over 30 days ago
your work is sooo impressive! a fellow artist friend of mine and I were discussing how to make sweat and/or water droplets look reall...as it is super hard...dang, I should have just showed her your painting!! I wish I had your skills!!
Em Gee - Over 30 days ago
Thanks Nate and actually it isn't as hard as it looks....I was the same until I had a go and these were the first ones I ever did, and if I want to paint them again, I will have go to and have a really good look at this....That is all it is....just seeing where the light and shade are.....perhaps just try it on a plain color ....and see how you go. Once you get it you will be crying tears all over the canvas. There should be a tutuorial somewhere on google...There is everything else so let me look..Found one but haven't watch it...but 2,000,000 have so it should be good....
Em Gee - Over 30 days ago
It is a great tutorial for you guys......learning myself...lol!! He does it in pencil....Message me when you do some ok..

They are not as difficult as they look. ....I just do the 2 quick outline sketches and then on with the paint!! It is just layering and building up!! I love when all the board is covered, and then the fun begins.....
Kevin Steward - Over 30 days ago
The realism of this painting is mind boggling. I really want an apple right now... :D

As the old adage goes, An apple a day keeps the doctor away. Hmmm, all I have to do is look at this image each day and I'll stay healthy.Think that will work? It's inspirational as well as it is a good feeling to look at great art and that's healthy : )
Em Gee - Over 30 days ago
Lol....It may do, as it does make one feel healthy and a feeling of well being :)) Thanks Lawrence

I have not visited your site for awhile and when I see your work again, it's such a great inspiration for me. Such skill should be bottled and poured over willing recipients. Thank you Em Gee!
Ingrid Zacharias - Over 30 days ago
Hey there's an idea, we can put Em in a sauna and she will sweat. We can collect it and it can become like our holy water. When it is sprinkled on us we become endowed with all of Em's fabulous talent. What do you think Em? :)
