Oh, the horror. I know. I look at it and several choice lines from “Carrie” pop in my head. So, here’s the thing: I hated the first version. I did. Her left arm was too short, one leg was inexcusably thicker than the other, and her vagina (well, her groin I mean, not her actualContinue reading “Then this happened…”
I didn’t stop forever, just for a while. I finished the Alice painting, which I will post once its owner gets her sexy mitts on it. In the meantime, here’s some weird shit I’m working on. I’m frustrated with it because, well, look at it. It’s a frustrating thing. I suppose that’s why it’s anContinue reading “It paints again…”
I keep neglecting to post here. Maybe it’s because I feel like words are required and, elsewhere, I just post pictures. So, that’s what I’m going to do for now. Post pictures. I have been working on a few things lately, which is a big change from not working on anything. I’m also trying toContinue reading “Time got away…”
It was completed the other day, I just failed to update here. The night I finished it I had a stress dream. You know how once you stop driving after driving for hours, you feel like you’re still going? That night you might dream that you’re driving and repeatedly wake up in a panic, feelingContinue reading “Painting is complete…”
Added shadows and highlights. And polka dots!
“So, have you painted anything weird lately?” my Grandma asks during one of our recent phone conversations. It put a massive smile on my face that I’m sure she could hear and I told her that I haven’t painted anything weird, but I’ve certainly drawn some odd things. She laughed and carried on with theContinue reading “Grandma loves Rockwell…”
I’ve been active with social media, but have failed miserably with updating here! I post update photos on Instagram and connect that to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, etc…but not WordPress. My lack of updating is due to it being inconvenient. Another way to say it: I’m lazy, yo! So, an update: I’ve been working on aContinue reading “Update in progress…”
A huge gap in posts for which I have no (reasonable) explanation. I was asked to paint a landscape similar to an earlier painting, so that’s what I’m doing. Of course, it doesn’t look exactly like the original, but I that’s okay. Few words this time.
Every year (or multiple times per year) I decide it’s a great idea to revamp my life. By that I mean my work and all that’s related. Perhaps it’s not the wisest decision, but refreshers are good, especially for a mind becoming stagnant. Four pieces were completed at the beginning of January for a play.Continue reading “Back to work…”
…makes me want to cry. I’m trying, I really am, but I am not winning at this type of paper. I’ve read comments and perused tutorials and all of that stuff. “Don’t soak it”, “Soak it for 15 minutes”, “Gesso the front and back so it doesn’t buckle”, “Only use it for drawing!”, etc… MyContinue reading “Hot Press Watercolor Paper”
