Speaking of horrible pictures, my camera has begun picking up a lot of noise. I think it's time to clean the lens and read the owner's manual.
I've found a new muse, so to speak. In the past twenty four hours I've worked on three pieces of art with Dorothy on them. No, not from the Wizard of OZ, I mean the one from Big O. If you haven't watched that series, you should. Anyway, I love Dorothy's cold nature and thought it'd be fun to do some artwork with her and make her a bit warmer. To the left is a drawing on newsprint with marker I altered in GIMP, which is a free photo editing software much like photoshop. I also drew the same image onto a cigar box purse and onto a 11 x 14 canvas to be fully painted with acrylics. Today I'm going to try to work with her in a sitting position; her hands are becoming a pain to work with but I think I just put too much thought into it.
My art desk is a real mess and a half, by the way. If you go see the photo on flickr, read the notes to see what everything is. I managed to tidy it up last night but it's just going to get messy again today when I open up my paints so I am not sure why I bothered. C'est la vie.
Dinner tonight is tropical chicken soup. Hopefully my camera starts behaving.
Until next time,
