Yall itchin fer a fight?!

I maybe goin out on a limb on this here blog but I ain't afraid! I'm about ta commence a acrylic paintin of ma brother Billy Joe Bob Lobenberg. He's a cat fishin, bagel-eatin -son- of- a- bitch, good old boy from Turlock, California who don't cotton ta mean spirited words about his older brother's artistic efforts if ya catch ma drift. I'll be a postin his portrait in this here spot in a week or two. Think twice about any negatory comments! IT'S NOW A WEEK LATER AND MA BROTHER'S PORTRAIT AIN'T DONE YET, so don't you go a thinkin that it is or yer goin rile him! I gotta give a little talk and demo at a local art club on Oct. 8, so it ain't gonna be done until shortly thereafter. This is ma blocking in stage using an acrylic color palette of Acra Crimson, Cad. Red Light, Cad. Red Medium, Cad. Yellow Medium, Ultramarine Blue, and Titanium White. I'm startin ta work ma colors, values, and shapes. Next up is "polishin"...getting in the finished colors, values, shapes, and any final blending that I may want ta do. I don't know why I'm writing in this stupid faux southern accent and this here ain't ma brother, but sometimes I need a hit of Dixie in ma life. Yer ain't gonna give me no lip on this is ya?!

Hey - if he is as guapo as his school teaching brother, how could there be a negative comment? You might want to consider putting more hair on him that some of your recent works.

Hi David,

Like the peach ground especially fer yer tuff Brother. I've been listening to a book with a tough southern accent while I paint, and I like seein it in yer blog.

Great set up so far.

Keep feeding us the fiction too. God knows we need all the fun we can get. Am I right to think you
sound a bit like Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live? But hey I'm
Canadian. Cannot mess with your
politics.

Just love your painting.

Barbara

If that portrait turns out as nicely as those three posted earlier, then your faux southern brother should be mighty proud!
I'd love to see your upcoming demo!!

Nava said...

How can w'all give you any lip when you scared us so much, eh? (that was a nod to Barbara ;-)

It's already lookin' good, as are the wheels of the car on the painting behind it. And I ain't sayin' that just coz I'm scared. No siree no! I am meanin' it.

Y'all hard to understand at times....but you are getting there.  A little more refining of the Southern Tongue and you will be fair to middling.  It's when you cain't understand what's being said is when you have it.By the way - haven't seen any flyswatters yet.Sometimes that twang get's in the way on some words.  It's like learning a new language and everyone has a different intensity of the drawl....However, back to the real reason, it's good see this particular painting.  He's going to be a handsome son of a gun when done!
