    See? This is one more reason why the summer begins in joy, and ends in heartbreak.

    Default Everything but the kitchen Cinco

    Okay, I confess that I'm a gringo, and my idea of authentic Mexican cuisine is Taco Bell's 3 Crunchy Tacos Supreme® Combo, medium soft drink.

    So with the big Holiday coming up, I'd like to salute our neighbors to the South, like Gary Priester.

    Remember: When Life hands you lemons, ask for the salt shaker and the tequila.

    Hey, Ron, I'm not happy with the composition; Gary P. has been of great help in the past bringing all my elements together for me; Cinco de Mayo is only a few days away, and I wanted this piece off my drawing table (euphemistically) and displayed somewhere.

    Gary P. helped me out with this one, which was printed in the Official Guide:

    I had one goal making this piece: could it be mistaken for a photograph at a casual glance? C&C welcome.

    A photograph, for sure.
    I’m kind of bothered by the change of shading in the foreground; that is, the sand’s shading.
    However, there is very little that I inderstand.

    I'm not thrilled with that area, either, Ron. It was the color difference between wet and dry sand. I came close, but not perfectly, to matching the tones.

    Good call!

    What he was saying in a Puckish manner is that the work is not a pipe. It's a painting of a pipe.
    Gare - I really like that story. It reminded me that the work of Canadian painter >> Alex Colville << has been described as "Magic Realism". The idea is his paintings embody a rare emotional quotient that energizes them beyond just technically rendering scenes with high realism. His paintings aren't photographic in character, instead they have a kind of realism that reminds me of something we'd feel in a dream state - where we wake up without resolution of the plot of the dream

    I bring that up because I find a theme in your work that transcends the technical realism you achieve. That theme of course is your unique humoristic bent that seems to enfuse almost all you create. It brings a joyness most photoreal illustration does not achieve. From your audience I want to stand up and join the ovation and thank you.
