It's been a long time since I posted last. You know how it goes, summer, company, vacation, gardens and all that lazy stuff. Heard that it may snow this weekend at my casa, I guess summer is really over. Here we go, lots going on. I have a pop up show at the site for the new art studios Con.Cept on Sept 30. Then another show Dark & Obscure at the Art Gym, both fun shows a little close together but what the heck.
Just going through my entry for the Dark show, needs some serious tweaking. Also trying once again to figure out these little ad screens this time, motion detector, can't quite get the files right, should be easy but......
I took an oil painting class, landscape, neither of which I have done, needless to say I was the biggest beginner ever, in the class. Very frustrating but good for me. Getting ready to start a painting new series I'm pretty excited, stay tuned.
Found this little guy in my backyard, might be from a few summers ago when I hatched a bunch of adorable little cannibalistic praying mantis-es. One of my favorite predatory insects posed nicely with one of Drummers squeaky balls.
A couple of tweaks including whiskers for Mr Bob the cat and a few more things and now I'm finally feeling better about this painting. Few more things yet to go with the frame and the final coating and we will be there. This is one of those things that seemed to drag on like I couldn't quite get there, time just never seemed to translate into progress for some reason....
Is more really better, interesting question. I would be inclined to say that it all depends on what the "more" is. If it was money I would have to say yes more is better but if it was, say, shit, then more definitely wouldn't be better. I added another bird and it still needs a little something, I'll get it figured out.
I finished the Queen's stand I think I will have to add more to the bottom shelf but here she is so far. She plays about 12 full length sci-fi black and white movies has a pegasus sign that has 30 some different chase patterns. She is actually that cool...... haven't decided about the bottom shelf yet but there will be something there.
Ok I got, what seemed like a brilliant idea at the time, as with a lot of my brilliant ideas, in retrospect, was well....much less than brilliant...So I tried a change didn't like it, so went back here is the less than brilliant idea.
Bob the bobcat drawing soon to be Bob the bobcat painting. This is my preliminary drawing with a few shadows there's something I want to try so stay tuned until tomorrow. There are some interesting things going on with the map within the cat.
