So here I am in bed, with tea and my laptop. It has been a very long day...but not in a bad way. This is what I was working on this morning. And it's finished....yay!
It still needs work and is a few hours from being done, but I'm really happy with it so far. I like doing portraits partially drawn and partially painted. It makes the approach more fun and I like the outcome. This little cutie has such a happy expression on her face. Bath time should always be such fun! I also started a painting of rubber boots and a blue fence. So far it too is an inked in outline with some lovely floral pattern bits of paper on it. I blame my friend and fellow artist Angella Powel for my new addiction to tiny pieces of lovely patterned Japanese paper. I was getting canvas at the art store yesterday and bought 3 more "emergency" packs! But they do inspire lovely ideas for pieces...so it's not all bad. The rubber boots are for the show in Lethbridge. (3 more paintings....just 3 more!)
Training at Transcends' new location is going well. I am getting close to mastering pouring rosettas...but my hearts are looking a wee bit phallic....and sometimes even turnip-like. I am bound and determined to get it mastered! But my brain is tired....and thinking of that right now kind of makes me want to cry.
That being said, I think it's time to get back to my book...
