Thick Acrylic

thick acrylic
A tiny interwebs representation of  a 16″ x 20″ canvas, starting out thick with acrylic. I even used a palette knife to move the paint around for a bit before starting to blend things together with a brush. As to what this is going to be — to be determined — but it sure felt good.

Arts n Arts n Arts n Arts

open air festival
I have a solid excuse for not having any new arts this weekend. I had to part with some of them to make room for more at the Open Air Festival of the Arts with my booth buddy, Historic Maps, LLC. Next time I put on my seller hat, I have decided I will put more effort into labeling and building up a larger variety of images and perhaps sizes. It’s so hard to gauge what people will want, but then I suppose that’s what market research is for. I may also figure out how to use a smart phone so I can do fancy electronic monetary exchanges. Brilliantly, I managed to bring a cooler so I would stay hydrated. This little vixen is an anti-functioning human when not properly watered. Next big thing to start planning: Chalkfest 2013.  Until then I will be locked away, diabolically arting.

Painted Milk Cans

Bit different angle, but who doesn’t love a good before and after. I also have a few process pictures if you are interested in sanding, the Chihuahua or the Beagles.

Screenshot or it Didn’t Happen

working on something
Proof that I do more than just look at cat pictures on the internet. Not used to working this large in Photoshop, yet. It’s 16″ x 20″, 600 dpi. So far, I have basically just laid out where the next ten hours of detail work are going. Forging ahead, I want to test how “painterly” I can get, digital style.

Flipped Canvas

painting back
That awkward moment when you and your feline agree your painting looks better from behind with the light streaming in than from the front. I guess it just depends on the mood. Oranges > greens today.

Summer is Coming

desert bugs
Playin’ with atmosphere.  I want to add in more texture and turn it into a texture experiment but this might very well end here.
