working on…

More today & tonight. I am not happy with it though. I suppose this is what I get for painting from memory…but it isn’t a specific I am looking for, more it’s a feeling. There are lots of special bits though, which can trip me up when I strive to keep them at the expense of the big picture. I took this photo w/ a flash at night…forgive me. 😉

This is what I worked on yesterday.  The first part of painting is a conundrum for me. This is the second go at this canvas. I liked the first thing very much, but it wasn’t enough paint…or it seemed like I couldn’t just leave it on such a big canvas. I might have liked it, but innately I knew it wasn’t remotely done. So then you have to go at it again, which means you cover up some parts that you liked…but when I think on it long enough I start to see what I can do…how to get more layers on it in different ways. Yesterday it was about changing the colors mostly. The face took more shape. I had an idea. But…well the idea is still floating around in my head waiting for the next day. Tomorrow.

  2. Hey, where do you do your prints and how much does it cost to do a print of a large canvas piece (like the blue one of with the handprint, the one where you had two prints made of it) I’m just curious. I like your art and your style. It’s vibrant and has lots of energy to it. Keep up the good work.

    • I am sorry that I haven’t kept up with this blog and therefore never answered you. I used to get my prints done locally because I always prefer to buy local if I can. Plus I like the more hands on way of doing things. The shop I used closed though…so then I quit making prints. I might return to it one of these days…it’s a lot of work. Online you can find many places. I have gotten some very nice prints via You might try them or looking them up. Hope that helps.
