Bumble- Dear Bumble. Every time I see your name up I find myself eager to click on the post. Your profile says occupation House Wife but your art says Pro. I have seen many many portfolios come across my desk from "professional" artists who couldn't hold a candle to you. Your accomplishments in ArtRage and the progress you've made have, for me, been one of those rare and richly wonderful glimpses into another persons path toward fullness in their art. What a pleasure that you are here and sharing your art. This one is soooo nice and peaceful. Just what I needed this week end. It will occupy my computer wallpaper screen for a bit if you don't mind. :D

06-03-2007, 10:21 AM
Fashmir... :oops: thank you for your very kind words...no I don't mind at all you have it as a wallpaper....if you would like a larger version just let me know, you are very welcome.... :wink: :D

Bumble, what wonderful piece of work. The mood is one of tranquility. Love it.

06-03-2007, 03:25 PM
you're a magician- that's absolutely breathtaking.

06-03-2007, 03:44 PM
I agree with all of the above. It's wonderfull, thanks for sharing with us.. 8) 8)

06-03-2007, 03:50 PM
This is inspiring! I've been using ArtRage for only a couple of days and now I see the opportunities for creativity are endless; but I'll never be able to reach your level of skill.

Wow Bumble, wonderful painting, love the whole thing. I wish this forum had a favorites section, so you could store works that you want to look at time and again.

Another lovely Bumble artwork. Great sky, superb waters and a cute little boat.

How can you do it so quickly? You are really creating at the moment!


06-04-2007, 08:43 AM
I need a new Thesaurus as I'm fast running out of flattering descriptives for you Bumble.

06-04-2007, 06:34 PM
Thank You DoodLS.... :D :D
Robert.....Thank You.... :D :D

A fantastic atmosphere in a substantially tonal "marina" painting! This is a combination I like very much. Congratulations "maestra" !! (this is the feminine italian word for "maestro", (master, more or less, latin "magister") reserved to great artists as well as to elementary school teacher )

06-04-2007, 11:50 PM
Thank You Very Much Caesar...... :oops: :D :lol:

Love it Bumble!

pretty genius
06-05-2007, 12:11 AM
cute :roll:

06-05-2007, 03:29 AM
Once again looking at it. It's an absolute wonder! I really bow in front of such "marina" theme!!
May a pose two questions to possibly improve? How big is the sheet You start and end with? Did You do it en- plein-air, purely imagined or inspired by some sort of image? Is there any general recipe You may offer us poor human beings?

06-05-2007, 04:00 AM
Peter Thank You.... :D
Thank You Pretty Genius... :D :D
Caesar....Thank You again... :oops: I always work with a 2000x1448 canvas size.....and I mostly work from reference images.
This one was inspired partly by Jacks 'becalmed' I just liked the idea of the anchored ship,and the lighting behind.
Maybe I will do a 'Bumble-sky' tutorial :lol: :wink:
