I Won!

Recently an online friend and artist, Deb, held an art journal cover contest on her YouTube channel. My suggestion won! Not only did she send me one of the prizes, she also added the George James ‘Mastering Yupo’ video! There is so much information on this video that it will take me awhile to learn it all. I tried a few of the techniques, in my style, on a small piece of Yupo. It got a little busy for such a small area, but I decided to post it anyway in honor of my friend’s generous gift.

My son told me about a neat program for quickly transferring my files from one computer to another without having to use my risky network connection. It is called Dropbox. You can share your photos and files privately or publicly with other Dropbox users. You get 2gig of free space and you will earn more if your friends sign up and say you recommended them. I do not keep my files in the box for long so I have not come near to using the 2 gig, but if you decide to sign up I would appreciate the referral. You never know when you might need a little more space :O) Thanks

  3. Dear Eva,

    Congratulations to you! This is fantastic and I can see from your words you are on cloud nine. This is just wonderful. I am so very happy for you.

    I appreciate the referral to the Dropbox as we are always in need of some storage to which others have access to exchange files. Of course I will make sure to let them know that it was you who provided the referral.

    Wishing you a great weekend,

  4. Congratulations on your win!
    I love your new painting, the colors are gorgeous!

  10. Hi Padmaja. Thank you. I appreciate your supportive comment. I hope that I will be able to learn all the techniques on George James' video. It's the glazing that I have trouble with.

  11. Congratulations! Winning is such fun and I'm sure you have been smiling along with the joyful bonus of 'Mastering Yupo' !
    This is a sensational piece and I would say a mastery in Yupo!

  12. Thank you Mary Ann. You are so right, it really is fun to win at anything and the video was the cream on top!

  13. Yippee! Congratulations Eva! Your composition here is lovely- and I'll admit I'm always drawn to the blue/orange combination.
    Thanks for the Dropbox tip- and if I use it, I'll be sure to list you as the referent.
    I enjoyed your two most recent comments on Kathy's blogs about selling work and photography. You aren't new to this art thing are you?! :-)))

  14. Hi Pamo,
    Thanks for your comments.I have three computers plus my son's so Dropbox comes in real handy when I want to share files.I just right click on the file and click the Dropbox and it's there.
    Yep, I've been making a living as an artist and a little photography for over 30 years. Heard and seen it all :O)

  15. George James is a friend of mine and we have even exchanged paintings-- lucky me. Am glad you are mastering Yupo- your painting looks wonderful.

  16. Donna,you and George James are both lucky to have exchange paintings! Thank you for your comment.

  17. Hi Eva, Stunning much fun to look at! And, congrats on having your suggestion win!
