Then this happened…

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…”

It paints again…

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…”

Grandma loves Rockwell…

“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…”

Back to work…

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…”

And it’s done…

I’m not sure how I feel about the finished product. I do know that I’ve fallen in love with Golden soft gel medium, though. So…hooray for love! I think the bristol was a good idea, along with the canvas. I needed more coats of paint on the bristol, but it seems like it made moreContinue reading “And it’s done…”

More progress pics…

I’m cutting out my birds. All but one are made out of canvas. Bristol is my go-to for most things, so I decided to try that and see how it matches up with the canvas birds. I’m not sure about it. Initially, after painting it and putting it against the background, I didn’t like it,Continue reading “More progress pics…”

The progress pics…

My lady underwent some changes. I lost my knife in the move, so used all purpose shears to cut her out. I’m not thrilled, but this is leaning more toward an experiment than anything, so it’s cool. The background canvas was one of five that I had mass painted prior to moving. I haven’t fulfilledContinue reading “The progress pics…”

It’s not unusual…

…for me to occasionally dabble in landscape-type paintings when requested. My Aunt Bonnie, like me, loves the sea (I’m certain it’s a hereditary thing). One of the main things she loves: Lighthouses. Aunt Bonnie = Lighthouses…always has. She asked me to make her a lighthouse picture a few weeks ago, so I did a watercolorContinue reading “It’s not unusual…”

I haven’t forgotten about you…

I swear. I think about you every.single.day. I have been bound (and gagged) by horrible grown up stuff like…cleaning and signing leases and paying bills. Yuck. Short story with zero periods: Our lease is up in July, the same direction our rent is going, we were going to move, I cleaned like one does whenContinue reading “I haven’t forgotten about you…”
