Three Hundred and Forty-Seven!

OK, I finally painted a human that doesn’t make me want to tear my eyeballs out. Major success story here! As usual her head is way too large for her body but she is old and sometimes old people have really big facial features you know ears, noses and so on. For some reason I was interested in painting a woman with layers of coats but on route to that image I kind of stumbled on this elderly lady hunched over her cane and felt inspired. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Forty-Six!

Seriously could my imagery be more all over the place. I think I am starting to scramble for ideas, pulling from all different directions or ideas that float through my head on any given day. I mean I had been thinking of children’s stories and how there are always witches that try to eat children. Naturally I felt inclined to paint a witch face at that very moment. It’s another image I am uncomfortable with probably because it’s a human. I never feel confident with these silly human images! Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Thirty-nine! 

Sometimes babies are the hardest thing to draw and well when not done well they look like little creepy creatures. Unfortunately that is what happened with this image. As I’ve stated I am trying to just accept the work as I produce it which is the only reason I am posting this otherwise I would put this in the scrap paper pile. Please take note that the baby I used as reference is SO much cuter than depicted here. Anyway, one more down 26 to go. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred And Forty-One! 

This was loosely based on a self-portrait I took weeks ago. I had wrapped up for the winter weather and loved the way my eyes looked peering through all the layers. As my mother pointed out, it has references topics which make people uneasy but I think/hope people can look past that. I tried to dive into the patterning and line work. There is something I really enjoy about the version which contains watercolor. It feels so different from anything I have done before. Enjoy and see you next time.

Three Hundred and Thirty-Seven!

It’s Lady Boo Boo in all her glory! For those who have not had the pleasure of meeting this fantastic lady, this is my Pomeranian. She is quite the lady and has a very majestic way about her. She always stands tall and alert even as she gets older. This winter was fun as she loves the snow and utilized the snow piles in our yards as look out posts.  I do not have too much more to say other than I am pumped that I was able to capture her aging face in this image as I tend to always make her look like a younger pup. This is who she really is… Enjoy and see you next time.
