Wow. Best batten down the hatches.

The apartment owners are lucky to have you guys as a form of gale insurance. Should be paying you to hang onto the roof handles, keep it from blowing away to Oz.

You stay snug and dry young lady. And be good to Todo too.

well im being good to pudda...does that count? the cat in its enthusiasm is getting through 5 cans of cat food most days and spending his retirement mostly sitting on a plush blue blankie being lord of all he surveys.....as for holding on the roof...a great idea :!: maybe they will give me a subsidised rent for that :D

Selby

I especially like Magnolia, Straight Up and the two stencil thingies. Looks like you're back with a vengance. Cool!

thanks Robert :D ....yep i decided total artmersion was the answer :D

stenciltastic is cool and i like the squigglyness of the lines on the cat drawings (hope the mouse got away.) the scary dude with missing teeth with the beaker full of bubbling green stuff...
you could make a series of the squiggly line cats-

Selby
08-02-2007, 07:39 PM
thanks felfish :D ya i could do a cat series...makes it easy when you have a live in model who works for cat chow :D...if only all models worked so cheap :wink: :lol:

You really have a way of giving your fast sketches elegance.

The stenciltastic one really appelas to me. Is it made only with the stencils that come with Artrage or did you make custom stencils? If you managed to compose that with just the standard Artrage stencils you get even more awe from me!

Selby
08-03-2007, 01:45 PM
Thanks ÄlveKatt-glad you liked the sketches.

for the stencil one-just the stencils that come with art rage :D I used two frenchcurves for the "petals" (overlapped) and inverted them and them used them the right way out and then a different french curve inverted for the stem with a ruler to mask the top off

I was just looking at your cat sketch doodle today in "the paint my cat" thread. It was amazing how you appeared to have walked away with the prize there for what you called a quick doodle. Still one of my all time favorites.

Hi Selby,

Nice gallery. You've a unique style. Like your simple sketches. They're so cute especially the cat sketches. I like the Magnolia tree. Beautiful. :D

Still having the time of my life when I come to visit. Your stuff is really creative. Now that you got your liquor license, and you're serving martinis, maybe you can add a buffet with nachos and buffalo wings and we'll have the happiest hour ever here at the ArtRage Watering Hole.

:P :lol:

In September I had to say goodbye to a good friend of 13 years Pudda (my cat).He got really ill very fast and had to be put to sleep. Been finding it hard creatively to do stuff since then,my heart has been sad and i miss my furry cheerleader terribly, so here are some quick sketches in memory of my good friend to get the ball rolling again.


Selby

The amazing adventures of Pudda!

This would accompany a nice witty kitty around the house style story with a James Thurber kind of feel.

Bon Courage Selby.......................maybe after some time you'll find a new friend...................I remember when my first cat died I found an ad where someone was giving kittens away and I ended up with two!!

Keep painting!

D Akey
11-11-2007, 11:08 AM
Oh, wow. I missed that about Pudda not being with us any more. Peter said it well. New fuzzy friends are good too.

Selby
11-11-2007, 11:17 AM
yes i look forward to a new furball one day :D might need to wait till we move to a different place though..hehe it was one thing having a stately old fellow in a second floor apartment but a kitten would be mayhem :shock:

I keep painting just needed a little push to get going :D


Selby

screenpainter
11-11-2007, 05:35 PM
wow, your sketches are fun and playful Selby. Simple but they seem to capture the entire expressiveness. Have you thought about the fact that they would make stencils too? What fun. :D

Selby
11-11-2007, 06:39 PM
thanks gz :D no i hadnt thought of the stencil idea..i was forgetting we could do that...it would be fun :)

I know your pain Selby. I recently lost a dog to a car.
The sketches are a wonderful tribute to your long time friend.

Selby
11-11-2007, 09:15 PM
thanks Robert :) I wanted to do something to remember...kept thinking of rather finished stuff and being intimidated as its not my strength.. but these in the end show him for his best fluid and gracefull and lively and a thousand moods ,which doing just one piece would not have done justice to.

sorry to hear you lost a good friend too recently..its hard being the one left behind .

Selby

Selby
11-11-2007, 10:23 PM
ok it was time to push oneself outside the comfortable place of doing what im used to...so i had a go at Bumbles great sky tutorial and these are the results.

11-11-2007, 10:59 PM
I really like how you sketch Pudda's life. Just love them. They all show memories there. And you're doing an excellent job in the Bumble's sky. I guess we can see some more coming. :D

Selby
11-12-2007, 12:42 AM
thanks Pai :D yes spending 13 years with Pudda gave many happy memories to draw...ive had other friends who werent nearly so steadfast :shock: :wink:

hehe yep the skys the limit as they say and now ive tried that the door is open to play with other adventures...maybe next i can do land and then next thing ya know ill have a landscape hehe:lol: what can i say these innovations dont come fast to all.

Hey Selby,

Made me kind of sad to see your beautiful and expressive drawings of Pudda, and to know he was no longer with you. :(

And to change the topic - nice skies! (I really gotta to find the time to practice Bumble's tutorial also).

Selby
11-12-2007, 07:12 PM

late last night i remembered a comp which was closing at 1am my time to win a cintique from wacom asia pacific.

I put an entry together quickly using one of my attempts at bumble skies and although i wasnt completely happy i thought you might like to see what i did.

the theme was thank you and the dimensions were set but all else was left open in the brief.

Why hello there Selby!

Just swinging by to say thanks for the comment and I really like the sketch pudm8.png I know how hard it is to lose the bloody animals, two of my childhood dachsunds died of old age and I sitll remember it now

thanks Miffle :D ..loosing pets is always so very hard...but i also think its what makes it worthwile..to love someone so much you really miss em when they are gone

sketchiing on the puter didnt coe easy at first - i would draw left handed in real media(my correct hand) and then scan and redraw with the mouse...its much easier these days using a tablet so i can use my correct hand.

I have been looking and waiting for an opportunity to comment on your new avatar and it just never appeared.

What a beautiful face! Many was the time I looked at your old avatar and wondered what you actually looked like. It was like seeing a possibly very beautiful girl in a crowd and wishing she would turn my way so I could get a better look at her. . .

And you finally did and I'm elated.

Thank you so much for that. You've always represented dearness and have been a bright support to all through your sweet posts.

Thank you so very much.

I'm going to try hollering from the opposite ends of the Earth. Go outside and see if you can hear me: "YOU'RE CUTE!!!!"

Dear DA, You're certainly a great ladies' appraiser!! :wink:
Not to interfere, but I would agree, and participate as Your esquire to Your courtly poem, Sir DA. More modestly I noticed her too and found a a very interesting and classic aspect on an old statue inspired to Selby (do You remember). The curls, shoulder ... much of a classic beauty, isn't it? :shock:
Homages, domina Selby! :)

Selby
01-09-2008, 10:51 AM
thanks D'Akey and Ceasar :oops: :D its nice to be made special by my friends here :) and as for your gracious offer to holler praise from the far ends of the earth, what lady could resist, dashing fellows i shall repair to the balcony at once :wink: :D

...thanks both for making my heart smile.just what i needed today. Sorry i havent given you any more chance to visit my gallery recently...have not quite had the heart to paint recently but i hope to find the will to do some very soon.

It looks like Your number one masterpiece with a legendary name is an absolutely beautiful baby and, as far as I can see, much alike to his mom!:)
Warmest congratulations and watch, now that he just started walking, is the period to be the most anxiously careful .... worries almost killed me in those days (when I always had to be ready to dive like a goalkeeper to catch them out of some trouble) and it happened twice (I've got two).:D Kidding.

I'm so happy for you, as your joy projects clear across the planet!

Now if you please, quit lollygagging and GET PAINTING!!!!!!!! :D and your drawings are cute as a bug, as my grandma used to say about little kids, keeping with the theme.

I think that both as artist and as a mom You cannot refrain anymore from drawing and painting and You started with this funny cartoon drawing Your kid appreciates for sure!
I would agree with our ineffable D Akey about Your charming and aristocratic look Sargent would have loved to portray. It's just a pity an Avatar is too small as a reference ...

@DAkey-Thanks DAkey:) its lovely to have been so warmly welcomed back and glad to hear you like my new avatar- it was a photo from my wedding anniversary in January when my husband and I reaffirmed our marriage vows to one another infront of family and friends a choice some people found hard to comprehend but to us it was simply a way of affirming our choice to be together and saying i once said i do, and i still do:)


@Alexandra- :)
@Coops-thankyou.. felt good to have you see my bugs as cute-its as i hoped theyd come out IYKWIM
@Ceasar-yes tristan is such an adventurous spirited child too which is both lovely and a little concerning for his mum who loves to see his boldness and some days fears his confidence is a little too much, like when he decides to launch off the lounge at full pelt fogetting to me it seems, he is only quite little compared to the lounge, and a more circumspect decent may be warranted- so like you i too have already made a few goalkeeper like dives:)

That color really sings! Great choices. Looks very virtuoso in a Matisse sort of way, although he may or may not have ever considered this canvas gray to be so good for setting out the colors, especially the lime green. It works.

So at the very least, the move has produced a house in bloom.

D Akey- thankyou what a beautiful compliment:)
and yes the house is in bloom indeed! infact the garden we have gotten with this house although wanting quite a bit of love from being i think perhaps ignored too long before we came is rather amazing and even more so as its a rental. The garden was what initially drew me to consider this house- as you drive up the street you see a sage green federation style wooden and metal fence and gate arch covered in the most beautiful roses all rambling and wild in whites pinks burgundys and apricots framing a pretty little white cottage with sage trim on the eaves and the photo in the ad of the front of the house had me inlove at first sight.

Caesar, Coops , Screenpainter, mannafig, SCP:):) thankyou all for such a lovely welcome home here.

Wow colours are gorgeous Selby ,amazing you got that from a physios waitingroom.I think all my memories from my physios was Reds and Blacks :eek::( Well done.;):)

Caesar
03-29-2012, 12:23 AM
You're evidently exploring color schemes and merging implications ... and following a sort of chromoterapy too maybe ...:D
They look wonderful in Your combinations and I guess that also Your kid likes these works very much. Looking forward to see him too soon on ArtRage at Kidz Corner! :p

"Pottering"? "Phisios waiting room"? Is this some sort of artist-in-the-making-in-utero vision Selby?

:):):)

Selby
03-31-2012, 07:03 AM
Thanks for all the lovely replies guys:)

@Alexandra- wow that would be fun- Id love to wear my artrage art like that!: )

SCP- I was messing about trying to capture the red hot pain feelings in my hip/back and imagine that i was painting them towards a positive cooler brighter happier body feeling, sort of like a art meditation in the hopes that transforming the paint might help the body:)

Caesar- exactly right a "chromoterapy" kinda art play:)

D Akey- hehe you made me giggle. Dont quite know what im making of it all but its a nice kind of "little space" for artplay and exploration in my head while I sit n wait in an otherwise very dull and uninspiring room.

Selby

So good seeing you after so long!!! Hope you can get back to having some fun with picture making. This is such a nice surprise.

Hello All,
thought you might like to see the little puddle about I've been having this morning after downloading AR5- so nice to get a little time to play before my day gets taken up with more mundane things[ATTACH=CONFIG]95714

D Akey

Oooh. Lovely. I love the directional patterns -- both very pleasing in relation. It reminds me a little of different states of water on the movement level. Above is the water in the atmosphere being pulled by gravity, while on the surface it's being influenced by the moon. Gentle and sweet abstraction.

Nice start to the day!

Selby
08-08-2018, 08:54 AM
Dakey-you are spot! :) on thats exactly what i was thinking about as I played- it was raining outside so thats the directional water and the water under the moons influence is a sea being pushed by wind rain and tides with a little light of sunshine coming down through the rain.

Funnlily enough my real name means "Goddess of the moon":)

Beautiful Shelby , love the softness and yet it shows the fast movement of the water, very nice

Excellent Shelby, I like how those blues represents the sky, wind and water. : )

Alexandra

Very calming, Selby. I would love to see this on a wall!

Selby
08-12-2018, 02:27 PM
Thank you Pat , Chuck and Alexandra 😊

Alexandra- I think your right I think I might frame this and pop it above my desk as I I’ve just changed my space and was thinking the walls were a bit naked

Selby

A little play this morning thinking of windswept grass on a hill against a dreamsky- im thinking i might revisit this later but for now im enjoying its loose unfinnished nature and the colour play

Indeed. Communicates the playfulness and the joy of surprise. I know it commercializes it, but I could think this the most upbeat gift wrapping paper ever. The gift that keeps on giving -- first to the artist, next to the recipient of the gift. The colors are like peals of joy at a kids' party or maybe an older crowd who could do with a reminder of how special the moment can be.

Go Selby!

Alexandra

I agree with DA, very uplifting. I love it!

Selby

DAkey How fun would it be wrapping something in your own paper-such a lovely idea!:)

Selby
09-17-2018, 08:57 AM
well this morning what i thought i would make would be some sort of quick city sketch but what ended up determined to come out my brush was more like the view you get out a window in heavy rain95987

I like it. It reminds me of a nice much needed rain, and the colors add a beautiful aura.

D Akey

Like watercolors in the rain. The Buddhist sand painters would embrace you mightily no doubt for the ideas of change and movement. You may have fostered a whole new philosophical school of art.

In these the colors are very fresh and alive and organic. I think maybe part of you is resisting the hard structure of metal and stone buildings in favor of the flowing nature of water and air elements.
