Sad to say it is a Saturday night and I really never had an urge to leave the apartment so when I got bored I decided to tackle this image again. I really like the way this image is developing.  I’ve started to paint into the image, in the hopes of connecting the entire piece. I know it is not there yet but I am tired and want to sleep. I know who do I think I am… Sleeping! Regardless, the transparency of the lite acrylic washes in contrast with the super opaque color is wonderful. Interesting things are happening with the conversation between the graphite mark and the painted marks… curious! Enjoy I look forward to continuing with this image tomorrow, see you next time. 200!

One Hundred Ninety-Nine!

So I am out of paper currently, well at least the type I prefer, so I decided to back track through sketches I has started and given up on and morph them into something new. This was the beginning of one of the tattoo ideas I has made for Liam. It never even came close to being done nevermind make the cut so I decided it was the perfect base image. The other bits were added with the intent of having even more added into the image. Enjoy and see you tomorrow!

One Hundred Ninety-Eight!

Small bit of a painting, started working on this image after I finished a painting for a Christmas present. I had an abundance of unused paint that was going to be wasted so I just started painting with acrylics on watercolor paper. I enjoyed developing the shapes, maybe next time I paint I’ll finish the image. Enjoy and I’ll see you next time.

Another day another image… trying to stay on track is all. I like the different elements collaborating in this image, although it’s still not finished. Seems as if I never “finish” anything… not sure how I feel about that.

One Hundred Ninety-Six

Late night drawing sessions just seems to work out best for me right now although my sleeping patterns are becoming non-existent. Regardless I am happy to say I feel like I might be back into my drawings which is huge for me. For anyone who follows this I will probably be trying to mass produce to get caught up for the at least month and a half that I was completely slacking.

I love this current graphite drawing, I am working on an additive and subtractive method to try an imitate a more painterly style of drawing… we will just have to see how this progresses!

One Hundred Ninety-One and Ninety-Two….

This is different stages of the same image, it still is not entirely complete but it is moving in the general direction. What is interesting is that I had originally seen this image from a completely different orientation and as of right now I’ve basically flipped that. Interesting how that happens! Anyway Enjoy  and I’ll see you next time.

It’s amazing to see myself make two postings in a weeks time…. I will same I’m somewhat impressed with myself. These came about the other night after walking the dogs at night. It’s kind of fun to look at shapes at night since things appear so unclear and your mind fills in the gaps. Now I’ll admit most of my inspiration comes from trees and rocks but it’s also the atmosphere at night, a little unsettling but very natural. Anyway, enjoy and see you next time!

One Hundred Eighty-Three through Eighty-Eight!

Well it has been quite some time, but here are a few images that I have been working on. I have some serious catching up to do but it will all work out. Seems as if I am starting to get back into a routine which was key in my success in the beginning. The images below are literally a random assortment of thoughts, ideas, mediums and projects. They really don’t have much to do with one another but who says they have to!

One Hundred Eighty-Three, one of the first tries at the tattoo layout.

One Hundred Eight-Four, a more complete rendition of the tattoo idea

One hundred eighty-five, this came after I had been working on a few different tattoo images for my husband and well his birthday just happened to stroll along, so I decided to theme his card after some of the ideas. Minus the color of course, that was just me coloring!

photo 4

One Hundred Eighty-Six, completely unrelated to the above images and completely not near finished. This is the first element on a new larger scale piece. Truthfully, it has not even been brought to its final degree of contrast and depth but it shows something I have been working on.

One Hundred Eighty-Seven, in my attempts to get back into drawing, I have been just sitting with basic drawing materials and building imagery. They really are not even connected quite yet, but maybe as the image develops further they will begin to integrate a bit better

One Hundred Eighty-Eight, I love this. I did not work it far enough yet but I was out walking the dogs at night and looking into the woods and loved how things overlapped and intertwined themselves together. I may be revisiting this idea very soon!

Enjoy and I’ll see you next time!
