john (on a day when he realized things) ~ watercolor, colored pencil, soft pastel, gouache and casein paint on old book page

i'll put john up here since the pogo deal is no longer happening...

in answer to some of the questions i've gotten re: the pogo printer: it's about 4" x 6", and yes, you can hook it up to all digital cameras but not all cell phone cameras. it's also 'blue tooth capable'. since you hook it up to your camera, you can't edit the images in any way before you print them. the printed image will be cropped a bit (from the way it looks in the camera lcd screen), so if i'm taking a pic that i know i want to print on the pogo, i keep that in mind. the prints are 2" x 3", and if you peel the paper backing off they're ready to stick somewhere. because the printer uses an inkless technology the prints never smear.

  1. Hello! I have been visiting your blog for a little while now as my friend Janine recommended you! I love your work and am always intrigued to read what you have
    used to create your paintings. When you mentioned your discovery of casein paint a while ago I resisted the temptation(for the moment) to go and buy some as I have plenty of things on the go. However, the same restraint did not apply when I read about the pogo! I have not heard of them before so rushed off to Amazon and bought one! I did do a quick ten minutes research first in a most sensible way but I love the sound of it! So thanks for the tip is what I really wanted to say!

  12. John looks like a thoughtful kinda guy.

    I am not surprised you liked the winged heart, it could have easily been inspired by you (except I didn't know you then, haha.)

  13. Liking John a lot, and I'm glad there are days when he realizing things.

    I have a pogo, but it doesn't work with the iPhone, which was disappointing.

  15. Seeing John made me remember Gilberto. BTW: he is handing in my bathroom now and I look at him every day when I soak in my tub. Somehow I know that he is trying to tell me something. I hope he isn't too set on staying in that location. We are listing our house for sale this week and he might have to make a move. But, I'm sure he will be happy where we end up when the times comes. Moving...such a difficult decision to make and I am never quite sure if it is the right one. I am trusting my divine intuition to guide me.
