Hello friends, I’ve decided to stop updating this particular blog. As I’m sure you’ve noticed I am not the best blogger, what with all the non-blogging going on. However, what I am consistent with is the Instagrams, Twitters, tumblrs and Facebooks. So should you feel the need to see and read self conscious and awkward posts PLEASE follow me on one of these other social media outlets. Also should you want to purchase some of my work in the form of originals or prints check out my Saatchi. Thanks for all the love!
Never trust a hungry cat. Especially if you happen to be milk…
Goodness I’ve got nothing to say tonight…
It’s a painting I painted with paint…?
*rocks back and fourth on heels, while swinging arms and puffing out cheeks*
So its watercolor, body color and ink on paper…
Thanks for stopping by…
I really appreciate it…
Oh I almost forgot to upload the painting, sooooo here it is. Happy meal. A painting. That I painted with watercolor and junk.
If you like it, buy it! At Saatchi online!
Hello friends! I’m back! And with me I bring paintings! This one is called ‘Picture day’. While painting this piece, I realized that the confused grimace on the figure’s face is the same look that I have in almost every picture of me. You might think I’m exaggerating, so as proof check out my Instagram and see for yourself. It’s bad. Hence the title. Anyway this painting is watercolor,ink and gouache on paper. Thanks for stopping by! Comments welcome 😄
Hey friends. Guess what?! Oh… You figured it out already, huh? Well La-Te-Da mr/mrs smart guy. Just because there is a pic of a finished painting and this happens to be an ‘art blog’ doesn’t mean I couldn’t be talking about something else like….. uh I don’t know…. politics? or some other important topic. Gosh! Ummm…. Well anyway I finished a painting yesterday. It’s most likely finished. I might have to make the background darker, but I really want to be finished with this piece. So, we’ll just go ahead and slap a figurative ‘finished’ sticker on this bad boy.
Alright on to my question for the bestest followers in the whole wide world- suggested titles? Most of the time I decide on a title during the painting process. This piece however, I’m drawing a blank. I keep calling it Ghost Rap (because that’s what it says next to the happy apple) but that seems pretty lame. I’m also considering Goblin P and U Can Dy (hehe). These titles (while hilarious/confusing) don’t convey any meaning or significance. So any help you guys can offer would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Hey guys. How’s it going? Yeah…. Really?! She said what!!?? Hey, hey, shut up a minute, I want to tell you about this painting. It’s a painting of my wedding day. I married wolverine while being really, really shiny. Just kidding. Although my husband is super cool like wolverine, he doesn’t have adamantium covered bones that project from his knuckles, however, I did get married in a shiny, yellow jump suit… Alright, alright you got me, it wasn’t very shiny…
Anyway, back to the painting, I put this painting together with the thought that it looked like Wolverine and April were getting married. I used colored pencil on Strathmore drawing paper for this piece. I really enjoy the vibrancy of colored pencils but I can’t seem to get a really crisp look with them. I may redo this piece (or a variation on this piece) with watercolor. I’m not going to define this painting or say exactly what it means to me because I want my super awesome/smart readers to find their own meaning in this piece (you should totally tell me what it means to you). Thanks for stopping by! Comments are always welcome!
Hey guys! I know what your thinking ‘Gosh! Doesn’t this chick have anything better to do then blog?’ No. No I don’t. So… Anyway this piece, which I’ve titled Happiness, is… super… mega…….. awesome? Well, maybe not awesome or ‘super mega’ but I like it. What’s better then happy cats, Garfield and Care Bears? Nothing.
I finished this piece all in one day (I’m not sure why that matters) about a month ago. As soon as I finished it I didn’t like it so I stopped looking at it. I pulled it out of the Closet Of Shame today and you know what? I like it. So here I am, blogging about it. Enjoy! Comments and critiques are always welcome!
Hello friends! I finally finished a painting! *gasp* I know! It’s been forever! I’ve been stuck in a creative rut but I’ve finally managed to rock myself back and fourth enough to struggle out of said rut… Weird metaphor, right? I don’t really know how to get out of a rut but in movies (which are always a super reliable resource for rut-getting-out-of, right?) they rock their cars back and forth to get enough momentum… Anyway, I’m out! (of the… Rut…) Ok enough metaphors! I finally finished a painting!!! Whoot! Whoot! (I totally just did ‘the sprinkler’…. It was really cool)
This piece took about three weeks, I’m not loving it but I finished it. What do you guys think, pretty sucky right? Critiques welcome and appreciated
Hello beautiful friends! Guess what!?!???!!! I finished my first semester of college (well, fist semester back to college, not that it haven’t ever been to college, but I just never finished…. You know what I mean) Yay!!!! My last projects for my two art classes were hit and miss. I made a stop motion video , which I’m super proud of, for my Art Practices class (you should totally check it out and let me know what you think).
And then a really terrible ink painting, for Drawing 101, which I’m not very proud of:
(Pretty bad, right?) Anyway for years I have been enviously reading the excited posts of students who have successfully completed a semester of college and now I am very proud to be writing my own excited post, huzzah!!!!!
Hello friends and well wishers! So I didn’t finish or start this painting on the same day but I still feel justified calling this a create7in7 painting. It’s nearly finished and I am so excited that I’m finally getting the hang of this ‘oil’ business. It’s about 90% done. Enjoy!
Heck yeah! Day 5 of Create7in7 is done!!! I decided to try oil again, after the semi-success of my last painting. This time, however, I painted all of the background image with acrylic, and the foreground in oil. I have been doing a similar technique with some of my other paintings, Heart of gold, and Peas in a pod, painting the background in goauch and the foreground in transparent watercolor. The subject matter (just incase your not familiar with the little known show of ‘The Simpsons’) is either Kang or Kodos (I can’t tell which one it is) Anyway thanks for stopping by, and keep an eye out for Look7in7 day 6!
Oh! I wanted to share the progress of my last painting with you wonderful followers! Here it is,
