About pam

I am retired from real 9 to 5 jobs. I do my artwork and occasionally write poetry. In September 2010, I moved to Fargo, ND after spending 60 years in Phoenix, Arizona. Now, five years later, July 2015, I'm back in Arizona. And yes, I love the heat!

    Does anyone know how to make this a sticky post?

    I’m still learning WP’s ways, but I think it’s this. If you go to edit the post, you’ll see a new page come up. On the right is a box called “Publish”. Click on the ‘edit’ button by Visibility, and it gives a sticky option.

    PS Glad you made the journey here! 🙂

    Thanks Mit and Adele. I’ll try it. I feel like a bull in a china shop with WP. It will take a little more getting used to. I’m so glad to stay in touch with Opera friends.

    fascinating painting. you say it’s a detail? where is the whole thing then?

      I’m cropping her breast and pubic area. It caused issues with two people on Opera. It got deleted by Opera, I’m guessing, after that. Someone complained, I’m not sure. One of the people, Ombolan, felt insulted by what this other person said to him and refused to visit my blog anymore as long as that certain other person visited my blog. Ombolan ended up dying of cancer. Very sad.

    A Van Gogh set-up and a cameleon or some kind of reptile thing in front of it all. How on earth did you come up with that??? I like it a lot. Makes one ask a lot of questions!

      Well, I’ve always liked Van Gogh so I wanted a little of him in there. I did not like how I drew the model’s face, in fact, I hated it compared to how I had drawn the rest of her. I used to be a stickler for getting a likeness. So, I put the chameleon head on her. Because the chameleon changes color to adapt to its environment, I decided it would work for this painting because I was going through some changes in my life. She is actually lying on a bed of pythons but the bottom half of the picture is cut off, purposely. This painting seems to cause trouble whenever I show the whole thing.
