Finished up a painting. Not my favorite but not bad either. Thought I'd post some photos...

I find the painting distracting, but that absinthejournal is something else. I spit coffee on my keyboard and now my lungs itch from laughing.

Distracting in which way? I should have gone for a different perspective on the bottle but the technique I like.

Not sure what you're talking about....


Never promoted the site. It was a site I was toying with and just moved on to other things.....


OFFENDING SITE HUMOR....REMOVED

Like tinsel. I hate Christmas because I find tinsel distracting.

You posted some links. I had never heard of the site. I went there to see what ELSE was there, because I had already seen the painting. I found a lot of posts about making assbinth from gummy worms, and naked nuns and stuff. That's what I'm talking about.

It appears you're experimenting with palet knife painting. I'd like to see a still life of a whole bottle on a table with palet knife technique with more colors of green in the bottle, some indication of reflection in the glass maybe, flowers or something with color on the table next to the bottle for contrast. Keep it up. abs-cheers.gif

Yes, and thanks for the idea. I might just do that. I was hoping someone give some input.

First time doing an all palet knife painting. I had a blue/green bckgrnd but the bottle didn't pop enough. I went with shades of black and grey.
Absomphe
That absinthe looks like a sea monkey breeding ground.
zachM
I like it. I dont like the colors though. technique is good for a first time. I have a great dislike with black and grays. Deffinately more color and try and capture the interior of the bottle. I might try a transparent paint.

Dang . . . I'm gonna miss all those characters.

Artemis
Damn straight. That was the funniest absinthe stuff I've read in a long time. Made me jealous it wasn't on THIS forum.

I find this situation disturbing. It's like when Richard Dreyfus built desert monuments out of clay, under the influence of the aliens. What's that symbol all about on that Jade label? Is it merely the peeled banana symbol of the New Orleans Saints, or something more insidious, like the eye in the pyramid on the dollar bill? A secret mind-control ingredient, that's it.
celticgent
kirk bait?
Gr@t3.
Kirk
No bait,
the language of secret symbols,
I'm not even sure the person that put it there realizes the significance,
it's subliminal,
like deja vu, or,is it?
celticgent
no, i meant artemis was baiting you.

i know that you're old, but prolly not old enough whereas the dollar bill folks were baiting you.

The conspiracy does not exist.
There is no conspiracy,
move along now.

Not. I didn't have Kirk at all in mind, but he got it, as evidenced by the hidden message in his post.
celticgent
yes.
Hiram
Just great, hidden messages and
another secret-ingredient absinthe conspiracy;
don't you guys have anything
else to worry about?

Unless there's
something particularly weird or
enigmatic going on, everybody
soon looses interest.

On the other hand, the truth could be
right under your noses, taunting you and
ruining your concentration to the point that
it isn't even funny anymore.
Sad, really.

It's all muddy.

The painting.

These posts.

Who's friends with who.

It's all muddy.
Kirk
That's a good one Hiram,
but I doubt it, just the symbol.
Head_prosthesis
Familiarity (i.e. Sausage Fests) often
breed contempt.

Each time produces some
kind of conflict between
it's attendees.

Lovefest my neuticles.

Ha!




Artemis
It was all plotted in advance in a secret antechamber.

Really.
Head_prosthesis
Groups suck.

Amen to that.

Head_prosthesis
You suck too, Absomphe.
Jack told me so.
Artemis
Just to assuage any possible hurt feelings:

My post about the painting was an inside joke to Kirk while fishing for the painter just a little.

It was not to make fun of Kirk, or secret societies, or Hiram, or anything like that.

Although now a secret door seems to have been opened that involves witchcraft and secrets that go way back in absintheforumhistory.

It just goes to show, it's always something.

I feel the same way, but I'm too stoned to properly articulate my feelings, harhar.gif But you said it all.
celticgent
well, i hijacked and ruined this thread right good!

the funny part is, unlike most other times, it wasn't intentional.

The shortest distance between to points is a straight line - in the other direction.

"With each attempt, the odds of success greatly increase."

Does that mean I should be happy when I lose the lottery, because if I won, it would ruin my odds of winning?
Each time I lose, does that increase the odds of me winning later?
I personally don't think so, the odds always are the same.
archangelica
Um, no.

An attempt is not the same as a failed attempt.

Your chances of winning the lottery increase greatly by attempting to win (buying a ticket), rather than not attempting to win (not buying a ticket).

Kirk
That makes no sense to me,
the odds are the same, with each subsequent attempt, win or lose.
As for the odds of winning while not buying one, verses buying one,
the difference is so small, it 's insignificant.

It has more to do with intellectual pursuits than random lotteries. Such as, trying to wrap your brain around an abstract idea.

Lotteries are taxes on the poor. I don't play. But, as I've been told by the people trying to sell tickets "you can't win if you don't play" and my response is always the same - "FUCK OFF"

The "straight line in the other direction" is a line from a comedy.


My tag line "With each attempt, the odds of success greatly increase." refers to academics and inventions.
Kirk
But you could win,
you could find a winning ticket,
odds are about the same.
