My Thoughts... Exactly!

Hey, you wanna know what I think?

A Podcast about Oil Painting

This is the first of many-to-come Video Podscasts. This podcast is about painting in oils, using a limited palette. It has photos and audio, sort of a documentary slide-show style, with Yours Truly speaking.

Now, to be able to watch this 6-minute demo of my “Father Phoon” painting that I did for my Everyday Paintings series, you’ll need to have the latest, free, iTunes from Apple installed on your computer.

Once that’s all settled and done, you’ll need to click this link to be taken to my Feedburner Page which will have a list/history of all my Podcast episodes. An episode is any one item I have recorded—audio or video—and posted, sort of like if I had a TV show called Everyday Paintings, and did daily shows. Using this metaphor, Father Phoon is the name of todays show on my show called Everyday Paintings.

When you arrive at the Feedburner.com page, you’ll be presented with some options near the top right, below my photo.

Choose the one that says something like Add to iTunes, or Subscribe to iTunes. Or, if you prefer, just click the “play now” button below any episode you want to see/hear.

If you choose to Subscribe however, that simply triggers iTunes to always download the newest episode of Everyday Paintings when you start iTunes. There are no forms to fill out or information to give away: you’re merely telling iTunes to check my podcast feed for new episodes. It will list any episodes you have missed, as well as downloading only the newest one (presuming your iTunes preferences have not been set differently under the Podcasts Tab of the prefs). Any “missed” episodes will have a Get Episode button to force that episode to download.

I’d love to hear what you thought of it.

  1. Wow! That was fascinating to see into your world. With God having not blessed me in the realms of drawing, painting, etc. that’s a whole other realm than the one I’m in and so it was really interesting to me to find out the details of how you came up with the colors and all. Cool!

  2. Alright, now I feel useless as an “artist”. Stunning stuff. Your stuff has always amazed me, but it was really cool to see how you work. Keep it up.

    Any way to get the slide show to work in the larger pop-up window inside iTunes?

    Not that I am aware of, but you can slde the regular window larger by grabbing the right-hand side of the “artwork box” and moving it to the right. Final video dimensions are 300 x 300 pixels.

  4. Wow — I only understood about half of what you were talking about, but it sure was amazing how you could bring that painting to life using just 4 colors. You should get a poodle perm and host your own TV show! Oh, wait… didn’t you used to have a poodle perm?

  5. Lynette, I don’t do Happy Trees. And I invoke my 5th Amendment rights on the subject of whether or not I ever dsiplayed on my head a poddle perm. Anyone having such alleged knowledge would only be revealing how old she is, wouldn’t one?
