That dream within a dream…

That dream within a dream /Colored pencil on paper /8in x 10in

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!

 

Happiness

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!
