    PAINTING GAME

    What famous actor painted this picture?

    Here are a few clues. He was born in Connecticut, once played Charlie Brown off
    Broadway, and was in a band with Wonder Women (Lynda Carter). He was in
    one of TV longest running sit coms.

    I have no clue but if that is a painting he's an awesome painter. Great idea by the way!

    Hi all!

    I agree, great idea!

    And great painting!

    I never would have guessed who painted it, but I seemed to have read about it ... somewhere? :p

    And Wonder Woman and Radar O'Reilly -- in a band!?!?!? Opening in Las Vegas?!?!

    I may have said toooooo much. So I'll stop now. In case others want to guess. :)

    Hugs, Diane

    Very Good, Diane. You are Write With Eversharp! It was Gary Burghoff
    who played Radar on M*A*S*H. Reading about his career I discovered he
    also appeared on several game shows like Match Game and Hollywood Squares.

    One can easily find more of his painting on line. Here's one below.

    Hi, Rock,

    One "PAINTER" immediately came to mind. But I won't give my guess yet. Except to say: R.S.? :D

    Another great pic Rock!

    Very good, Diane. I can tell you are an aficionado of art. And maybe
    of clowns too.

    Didn't Frank Sinatra paint clowns? GB

    Frank Sinatra was a clown! Couldn't resist, GB. I never heard that he did
    any painting. Anyhoo he didn't do the one above. But Diane's clue is a good one.

    Just looked it up. Frank Sinatra did paint clowns as well as other pop art. He signed some of them F. Sinatra and also used Artanis, Sinatra spelled backwards.

    There are videos of him painting clowns too. (Don't know how to post them).

    Some of his artwork has been sold at charity auctions. He also painted gifts for his friends. Interesting. GB

    Hi GB

    Looked on the net and found this. It was just the size of a pill bottle when
    I copied it. Dunno how it got so big. The site said this was from an exhibit
    in Las Vegas a decade or so ago. BTW, the color in the painting is a good
    clue for our puzzle.

    Hi y'all,

    Rock, hmmmm ..... your second painting hasn't been solved yet?!

    Well, folks, look at Sinatra's painting.

    The main color that I see is "Red". **clue** :p

    Good luck, y'all!

    Hi Diane

    Glad to see you're up to posting, both here and on the porch. Yes,
    in addition to the red in the painting, there's a lot of bone white.
    My regards to Kevin.

    Bonus: Gordon picked up a small paperback book for a dime at the
    library's book sale. Here are a few quotes from "Women Who Joke
    Too Much".

    One of Dorthy Parker's book reviews: This is not a novel to be
    tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.

    All I can think of are Red Skelton or Leon Redbone? GB
  15. rockgor

    rockgor Well-Known Member

    Bingo!, GB. Red Skelton painted lots of clowns. I read they generally
    sell for 2-3 thousand bucks. I'm not even sure who Leon Redbone is.
    A musician, right?

    Whatcha think, Folks? Shall we try and find some more celeb paintings?

    Rock, Leon Redbone is a singer. He was on SNL a lot back in the good old days. I like his style. Maybe you can listen to him on Youtube. He's different. And, Yep, lets do more paintings! GB

    I can't find how to post a picture.

    Plus, can't find the link that told how we can change the pic info so it doesn't give away the answer.

    Tell me how to do these two things, because I have a celebrity artist painting I want to post, thanks.

    Hi, Patti

    It's easy to post a pic. You just use the cut and paste technique. The tricky thing
    is to find photos that can be copied. Most of them just sort of slide around when
    you are trying to highlight them. Sometimes I have to try dozens of photos
    before I can find one that can be copied.

    Anyhoo, Hold down the left button on the mouse and slide the cursor over the photo.
    The photo should turn blue. Then press down on the control key and the C (as
    in Copy) key more or less simultaneously. Now go to the board. Right click. The
    drop down menu should show "paste". Click on it. The photo should appear
    where your cursor is. Sometimes it will post in a different size or include additional
    material that you can erase with the backspace key.

    I have found if you want a pic of a llama, for example, do not search for
    llama photos. What you get usually will not copy. Just search for llama.
    Wikipedia photos can often be copied. But even they are starting to
    be problematic.

    I hope that makes sense. It's always helpful to have hands on training with
    this stuff. Rock [​IMG]

    Thanks, Rock. Wow, didn't know I could copy & paste a pic here, yayyyy. That I can do.

    Learning to copy & paste was a hard-won skill.

    No one would go slow in showing me. My teenage at the time kids would show me once real quick, saying it was easy, then get mad and leave the scene if I asked for a second showing.

    So I asked the teenage librarians at the library to show me and they did the same huffy act. LOL I finally learned when my friend told me how to by email, whew.

    I'll try posting a pic. Yes, copy & pasting a picture is tricky in itself, even when it's able to be copied, to get it highlighted just right. Back in a minute, hopefully with the pic.

    I copy & paste pics a little different than you do. When I highlight the pic, then I just right-click on the highlighted pic for the menu where it says copy, instead of pressing the Control key and the C key.

    P.S. I just discovered another even easier way to copy & paste a picture. You don't even have to highlight the pic first. Just right click on the picture for a menu, then left click where it says 'Copy Image'. And then to paste where you want it to go, just right click where you put your cursor and choose 'Paste'. And voila, there's the pic.

    I like this guy's paintings. First clue: He's a legendary singer-songwriter.
