My six-sided painting. I was pretty excited to find this canvas. I knew immediately that I wanted to do a space painting on this. Once I felt ready, I painted the canvas black. The picture above shows it all prepared and ready. My first layer: It's hard not to block a painting in like this … Continue reading Nebula on a hexagon
After my last show of 2018, my son was helping me pack up the car. He was carrying 2 paintings out when he slipped on a patch of ice. In catching himself, he dropped both paintings. He, fortunately, didn't hit the cement or hurt himself. But when he reached down to pick the paintings up, … Continue reading When things get torn…
I've still been working on the story about Martias and Steigan heading to the Palin Wars which I referenced last Wednesday. I'm trying to slant it so that a reader could pick it up at any point in the story, even before reading Quest for the Three Books, without much in the way of spoilers. … Continue reading Progress – January 14, 2019
So on yesterday's blog, I showed some pictures of a space painting I'd been working on in 2018 and thought I had done. But then, as any good tale would have, conflict struck. I painted another picture that made it look like garbage. Well, what's an artist supposed to do? I'd say that the correct … Continue reading It was a date, remember?
I'm done. This time, I mean it. I swear. Done! Okay, remember this painting I showed you about a month ago or so? I've been working away at it slowly. I worked really hard on it last weekend because I wanted to have it done in 2018. Here's a couple pictures of it in progress: … Continue reading I think I’m finally done!
I'm still continuing to work on the space paintings. Here's my next step in their progress. This one is the cloudy nebula. Trying to get a second layer on there without killing the first. The paints are still wet in this photo, so I'm certain they are much brighter than they will be when they … Continue reading Space – a continuing mission
I mentioned in a couple of my progress blogs that I'd been painting. I have been experimenting recently with space nebulae. Had to teach myself the valuable lesson of having fun once again a couple nights ago during my painting session. I was trying so hard not to mess up a painting I was working … Continue reading Space painting – WIP
I'm starting this post for the second time. I went off in one direction and realized that it was a whole separate post. You'll get it later in the week. You'll know it when you see it because it's about playing around. I think that was exactly what I needed to do when I started … Continue reading Landscape painting – WIP?
Well, this is it. The last of the 2018 Inktober drawings. I hope you've had fun seeing them along the way. If you've missed them, you can find the other weeks by clicking these links: Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4. Prompt #25 was "Prickly" I knew that I didn't want to draw … Continue reading Inktober #5
And now for the installment of my Inktober drawings since last Thursday. Prompt # 11 was "cruel." Okay, the world is just too cruel. I hate the horrible things we do to each other (for crap's sake, people, we are all humans born in the same way and all stuck on this bloody rock together!), … Continue reading Inktober #3
