something fresh

Yes, this is still the blogsite of Julie Crews. I needed a little change. No, not a micro-hair cut (though I am going in for a bang trim in the morning.) A blog freshening. I figure I am not painting a whole lot these days, as I cannot seem to get my head out of moving to Louisiana, so I may as well talk about that and anything else that pops up. ( I am still collecting backyard pictures, but the painting is going to have to wait a bit.)
Wow! I don't know ANYONE in Louisiana.

backyards at 6 a.m.

So I got this idea while putting my little girl to bed tonight. I am going to do a large series of paintings: backyards at 6 a.m. If you would like to contribute a photo of your backyard taken at that early hour of the morn, you will benefit greatly. You will get a really good feeling, and many, many good things will happen to you. Ummmm, and everything will taste good to you, especially if you are dieting right now.
If I don't get the response I am hoping for, I will resort to paying people, understand though, that this will cancel out those wonderful benefits of generosity.

a promise to my father

I have finally made my lazy and meandering self post a few photos from my show. I promised my dad this morning that I would. So anyone who reads this has to promise me in return that they won't think I am putting all my thought and energy into something that has already occured. I am not living in the past. I know this show is finished and I am currently moving on to new work. Speaking of fathers, I thought you would all enjoy this video. Every time I watch it I have to get out the kleen-x. Niel, my husband hates this movie because he says it is all staged. But nay, I say. NAY! I know the truth when I see it. For an enhanced viewing experience, watch it several times right in a row. (You'll see what I mean about the kleen-x.)
