I just make Pictures

It’s not the most important thing in the world. During times of crisis and upheaval though there is peace and calm in throwing my brain into the act of creation.

Here is some of what I have been up to.

Made this portrait of Wayne’s son for him.

Put Kurt’s Pop Pop (Grandpa) on his arm. Pretty snazzy dude!Pop Pop portrait tattoo

Kurt gifted me with this amazing rabbit’s foot which I was happy to acquire and Kurt’s family was glad to have out of the house. < dry dead >

We may add some lettering or background at a later date (still deciding) either way I will finish off more of her legs to wherever we wind up ending her.

Mondays are my day off and we are into the Painting Class Season (yay!!!). Progress shots from this week. I am happier with the nose on the bunny from the Flying Lessons and am still more confident that I will actually finish this painting and be happy with it.

And of course Monday night is back to Figure Drawing practice.

I tried messing around with that paper again that I used last week. I like the color and I like the finish – but because it is so small I had a really hard time getting any kind of detail with it. I got frustrated and grabbed a ball point pen – which would have worked out much better if it would have had black ink in it. I got a recommendation of some other pencils/charcoals to try and I’ll see if I can pick some up before next week’s class.

I have a friend visiting this coming week for an Art Date : ) so hopefully we will get to make some more fun stuff for me to put up here on my virtual refrigerator.
