While I am thinking of it…
Go see my Art.Garage.Sale here to see some small and afforable art by yours truely. Nothing over 40$ and would make great presents for the holliday coming up.
If gift giving is not your thing one of the paintings may add something your cubical at work, that little space at home that you are unsure what to do with or the like.
i finished this painting a few weeks ago, i have been meaning to write something about it but just have not had the time so this shall do.
i shall come back to the words
As god whispered the truth
12 x 16 inches
oil on canvas
i should add that this is the finished painting of this in progress painting
this is for sale
This painting I finished last week sometime, and is a part of my portrait series that I am currently working on.
oil on board
12 x 16 inches
The portrait series is my attempt to work on more formal skills of creating likenesses of people I know. I am also working on keeping them loose, not overworking them to keep the feeling more fresh and fun.
I feel that I am achieving this goal more so in this one then in the first one I did. Although I must push even harder to this goal and take some chances.
I have been working on this painting for several weeks now, it is not done yet however I thought it should live a bit.
like a lot of my current work, the heart has made an appearance however it has taken the iconic/graphic look instead of the more literal hearts of the past. I am not sure if I like it yet or not. I am leaning toward it but there are some other issues that I need to work out before I can say for sure.
the bone like structures have made a cameo also, I think they are nice so far, gives the female form something to â€œlean onâ€? I am still undecided to what will happen next…
Welcome to my new an improved blog! My attempt with this blog is not just to have it as a way to share my current art works with the world at large but my process and thoughts behind it too.
ok so not so interesting you say, how about if I throw in commentary about the local and international art world to add some â€œintellectual valueâ€? to this blog?
stuffy you say, ok agreed. how about I also just act as I am and be silly and act impromptu? getting better? odd commentary about every weird thought I have. interesting things I find to pass along and of course art.
naked pictures (now I got you) of me (oh, there you run)
get back here, I was just joking…
a bit about blogging and me, I have been blogging since I think it has been april 03 on other formats (livejournal.com) and have embedded that blog here, I have gotten sick of the other platform embedded idea and got a new fancy stand alone in my website blogging system to focus on the arts and that professional â€œartistâ€? self, what ever that means.
please note, the current design is in progress and will be modified until I finely like it, movable type has been my nemesis for the last week, but I shall prevail!
donâ€™t forget to say hi!
