…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…”
New body as in body of work. I’m not sure where I’m going with it, but I have found that I’m very attracted to poppies. Symbolically they are of great interest to me – anything that is tied to dreams is bound to pique my interest (or obsession). I’ve also noticed that the use ofContinue reading “New body baby…”
I’ll be honest: this was not made for this week’s Illustration Friday theme, but I think it fits very well. The word is “Lost” and the painting (“Lost and Found”) matches. This painting (6 in. x 9 in. with 1 inch border) was made a couple of weeks ago using watercolors. As usual, it containsContinue reading “Illustration Friday: Lost”
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…”
In addition to the Self Portrait Project and the Mystery Project, I’m also doing the Photo Response Project – a free project offered by the Art House Co-op. It needed to be postmarked by April 30th and I will be one day late. At least I finished it! I should say, though, that I thoughtContinue reading “The Photo Response Project”
Still working on it.
And now I need to find a new thing to do. This photo was taken before I put the clear coat on and I wish I had taken a better one because I always struggle with taking pictures of varnished paintings. If anyone has some good tips on how to do that, send ’em myContinue reading “The painting is done…”
The clouds are working out. I always forget that if I am patient, then I can get things to look as I want them to. But rarely am I patient. I made tiny, tiny changes today that might be hardly noticeable, but that’s okay…
From a dream I had last year. I’m really, really struggling with the clouds. The first picture was my first attempt (I sort of like those clouds better). The second picture is what is currently on the canvas. I think I’m heading in the right direction…maybe!
*cue Rocky theme* I started the Self Portrait Project, as seen below. I assure you I am a human and not a landscape. How sweet would that be, though? Height: 6,789 ft. Weight: More than your mom. Smoker: Yes (for volcanoes). I’d get all the ladies. Anyway, clearly I’ve not done any more than aContinue reading “Self Portrait Project – the beginning…”
