Hi, David. Love your art. I started oil painting at age 40 with a lot of trepidation. One of my first attempts was a portrait of my boy from a photo (he insisted on going out in the snow in both his Spidey knit cap and cowboy hat). Loved how forgiving oils are. And flesh is the hardest color tone to nail!! I had to re-try his facial features 10 times. There are 10 son's faces underneath this one that nailed it finally. Joy. He is now 21! Art- an awesome state.

Your paintings remind me of the buildings around the Northwest area from Philadelphia. It's a journey down memory lane whenever I see one

@EarlThePearls @barrsniffsatjejuneanalysis I lived and painted in the Kensington part of Philadelphia for a few years, lately its Doylestown PA, Carlisle PA, Frederick MD, and Odessa DE. Cool buildings all over the place around here.

I lived for a short time in Pottstown and St Peter's Village.

One house I lived in was on a corner. Mine was the new house of the 3. 1862. The other two were 1850 (an Inn) and about 1760 or so

@EarlThePearls @barrsniffsatjejuneanalysis I like Pottstown. I don't know anything about St Peter's Village. Gotta check that out.

@davidohlerking @barrsniffsatjejuneanalysis

Currently in OKC. Believe it or not a fellow I knew here's father operated the Inn at St Peters in the '50s I think

It's always fun to see how interconnected we all are.

We don't even need the full Six Degrees most of the time

@EarlThePearls @barrsniffsatjejuneanalysis I was working at a record show in Houston and started talking to a dude. Turned out he had lived a block away from me in Brussels in the late 70s.

@davidohlerking
Do you know a guy in the Bergen New Jersey area who goes by the nickname A Fistful of disks?
@barrsniffsatjejuneanalysis

@davidohlerking

Was just wondering as he is a pretty big presence at record shows in the NJ/NY/PA/MA/etc area.

@EarlThePearls I was only doing that stuff in Texas. That dude probably knows Dave Ritz (my old record store boss). Ritz knows everyone.

@barrsniffsatjejuneanalysis @davidohlerking You have done a great job there. I hope you kept on with your oil painting. Chris Saper has guides for skin colour that a so good. I have provided one extract as an example.

@MarieGreen @davidohlerking

Marie, will look into this, and thanks. Of interest are the blues and greens to the right of the chart. I am highly analytical, very left brain introvert. I stare intensely at beautiful works of art in museums where the painters use colors that would never occur to me. Celebrate where other artists will bring in blues/greens to shadow flesh tones. Just not intuitive to me. But I like it like that. Like being me - like their works, with different skills.
