It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (March 04): 03/04/19
I finished the Davis painting. I'm not entirely satisfied with it but it's as good as I can do now.
I also started the first of the climate change paintings. It's my first time using gouache but I felt it was the best medium for the series.
Last week I read seven books, but the three last ones were really short and I read them over the weekend. On the Come Up by Angie Thomas is as good as The Hate U Give. I will be reviewing it on Saturday.

They were fun reads.

I keep meaning to get to Song for a Whale

I will get it reviewed shortly after reading it.

Magnificent Birds looks really good! I will have to look for it. Your paintings look great as well! I had to look up what gouache is; very cool! Have a great week!

Magnificent Birds is beautiful. I got into gouache because my daughter was watching a Youtube video by an illustrator. I realized the medium would work well for my climate change project.

Love the climate change picture...and On the Come Up looks good. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

Thanks. I'll be done with the second one probably in time for next week's update. On the Come Up is excellent.

I still have The Hate U Give on my Kindle. I really need to get to it soon. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #12: Tuesday, March 05, 2019 at 14:53:00
You should read it. The movie is also very good. I hope On the Come Up gets a movie adaptation too.

Wow! Your artwork is beautiful! Ghostbusters Crossover looks interesting.
Comment #14: Tuesday, March 05, 2019 at 14:57:00
Thank you. The Ghostbusters comics are fun. The Crossover one, though, requires reading the previous ones. There are so many characters!

Very nice paintings...lots of books with pretty covers.
ENJOY your week, and thanks for coming by my blog.

Thank you. This week's going to be a busy one.

I had to Google Gouache. I would like to experiment more with gesso and paint for my cards as I'd like to go toward more mixed media. I'm thinking of getting some gelatos also.

Before this project I've worked in oils and acrylics. I've dabbled in watercolors and colored pencils. Good luck with your projects!
Comment #19: Monday, March 04, 2019 at 18:53:08
WOW! That is one heck of a photo of the moon! You captured it perfectly. Did you use a special camera?
Comment #20: Tuesday, March 05, 2019 at 15:08:00
I used my Olympus EPL-8 with a M.75-300mm F4.8-6.7 II lens. ISO 800. f8.0 and shutter speed 1/400. Manual focus. It's not a special camera — a midrange mirrorless camera.

I think the Davis painting is beautiful. Enjoy your books and have a great week!

I'm so glad to hear that Angie Thomas' second book is as good as the first. I will be looking for that one soon.
I also like the covers of Bob and Magnificent Birds. I shall also look for them.
Comment #24: Tuesday, March 05, 2019 at 15:18:00
The two bird books are very good.
Comment #25: Tuesday, March 05, 2019 at 17:08:55
Hey, long time since I visited, I see you are still reading like crazy!
Comment #26: Tuesday, March 05, 2019 at 15:20:00
It doesn't feel like a crazy pace to me. I do have other things I do. I work. I make art. Housework. Errands. Photography.
