Squid – Mr. Squiggles

Another coaster painting, I am not sure if I want to go back into this one but it is signed for now…  Might deepen the blue at the bottom, what do you all think?

The original one
Artists will often let work sit for a while and go back into them to fix things they did not see right away.  I mostly know what I wanted to do and I did go back into this one and darken it up, There are a few minor fixes I did as well.  I will leave the original up for comparison.

New Year’s Day Challenge

 

Facebook and other social has been boiled down into sharing memes, news and fake news, etc… for a lot of people.  I want something more!

When I started fb and other social media (livejournal, deviantart and others) it was a platform to express yourself and keep in touch with people you don’t see often or you liked the content they offer.  I want to encourage this by encouraging  this challenge.

On NYD via FB or the social media of your choosing (or all that you use) express yourself to your friends and followers something created distinctly yourself:

·         Post a photo of your surroundings, something interesting or unique in your home etc.

·         Some poetry, writing or some other personal story that people don’t know about you

·         Some art or craft work you are proud of

·         Food or recipe that you made (not found on pintrist)

·         Self portrait

·         Something funny or strange about yourself

·         A mini movie of your making

·         The list goes on!

Lots of you have off so no excusses!

Whale Tail in Blue

Apparently nothing is sacred in the world today, I was doing a google search for image references for my coaster painting series and looked up “whale tail”.  To my surprise there came up a lot of girls with their thong panties sticking out of there jeans looking like a whales tail just before it sinks back into the depths of the ocean.  The pictures where almost all candid, which disturbs me but that is a different discussion.

I am a little scared to google “raven’s beak”, all kidding aside here is the painting that came out of that search:

Buy this and get a chuckle every time!

Now that I am thinking about it, I think it would be funny to do a diptych of actual whale tail and girl while tail side by side.  Artsy though nothing crude 🙂
