Ah Ha! I am done!

I don't care if this is any good or not. I AM DONE!

After all, how long can one man spend on a little 4 x 6 sketch?

According to my calculations... Exactly 5 days!

For what it's worth folks, here you go. I have to move on. Wally, I only hope to twist your mind for a week the way you have twisted mine. :-)

Bless all of you for your "encouragement" throughout the week.

Seriously, it has been a lot of fun. :-)

You guys are the best.

As I thought....."Outstanding" I knew it would be worth the wait...and your stress..LOL Well that goes with such do know...90% of all self-induced...Ok you can go relax now Chuck and stop flushing the toilet to study the bubbles and current flow..ROTFL Have a cold one...and blow off the foam..(ô¿ô)
It really is beautiful! Way to go Bro.

Ror's comment about the toilet had me laughing SO HARD!
I think it's marvelous chuck!

Chuck Rose said...

Only my bother would know that I would do that.

And he's right. I studieed the toilet everytime I had to use it.

Anyway, thanks for hanging in there. For my own soul, it was worth the wait. And it sure helped having the support of a brother alog the way.

Now. What about Rainbow Falls? Been THERE yet?? :-D

Laura said...

Wow, you got the water flow and shapes and colors just beautifully, Chuck. The vegetation, too, is perfect with just the right amount of feathery definition and a great foil to the blocky rocks. Whew. I know you're glad you finished this particular 4 x 6 piece of real estate! Did you use a separate piece of paper ( those wc postcards?) or a sketchbook?

Chuck Rose said...

Thanks Laura.

I used the same little wc block that I used for that beach house with the big cloud.

See post "Another Beach House. Well... Cloud Really." from July 24.

Thanks for the encouragement along the way.

Chuck Rose said...

Linda, Rainbow Falls isin Hawaii right? Looks incredible. Maybe I'll get there when I retire. :-)

Laura said...

Oh, that's what it was (the wc block)! I knew it was something like that, but the early am brain wasn't walking on all fours. I just looked at the water again and am even more impressed now that I'm awake.

Linda said...

Well, there may be a Rainbow Falls in Hawaii, but the Rainbow Falls I meant is in the Smokies, between Gatlinburg and Cherokee, NC. I was kidding about it because it is a bit of a hike.

Hawaii, of course, would be an acceptable alternative! :-)

I love the water the best... it completely looks flowing to me..

I haven't had much time to visit lately, but it looks like you've had fun doing this!

I'll be around.
