Typical Jenn. I always forget how long it’s been since I last wrote. I’m surprised by the amount of time that has passed. I shouldn’t be, though. Things happen, life happens, etc… I’ve been working on boxes for the past couple of weeks. Little decorative boxes that I paint and sculpt embellishments for. I’ll postContinue reading “As usual, it’s been awhile…”
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…”
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!
…but the year is almost over, so it’s okay. Maybe I’m getting a jump on 2015?! For the past few months I’ve tied myself up with artwork (creating, not literally). I’m not at my computer (thus, this might be short and stuffed with typos) so I only have one photo to post that is semi-clear. Continue reading “I’m still proscrastinating…”
…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”
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…”
This thing has to be postmarked in three days. THREE DAYS. I’ve been making progress — more progress in the last week than I made in 6 months — and I still have a bit to go. 9 pages, I believe. My biggest issues with this project (or any creative project) are fear, poor planning,Continue reading “The Sketchbook Project 2014”
From November 1st to November 3rd Raleigh’s convention center hosted the World of Art Showcase, sponsored by our favorite art store, Jerry’s Artarama. In trying to think of how to describe the event, all I can hear in my head is “Wow”. That’s about all I’ve been able to express about it during and after.Continue reading “World of Art Showcase: Raleigh”
Scarlet dreams of scarlet seas she finds on the sidewalk during an episode. Satin protects her the way Satan couldn’t.
