The Beasty boys

I worked on Cruelty to Animals a lot yesterday. I added some decorative touches and got the borders started. I think it's starting to look lively. I've got some text to add.

Catching up

I haven't written in many days. I've been in a sort of suspended state of animation. LaLa land, also known as Paris. No, not the real Paris....I've just been intensely day dreaming. I'm reining myself in and trying to return to this earth. I've been working on Cruelty to animals. I made a lot of changes in it but I'm not sure about the colors. I'm going to do the border and then decide.

Besides my fantasy Paris trip, I went to the real Metropolitan Museum of art to see the new Greek and Roman rooms. It was incredible...I only got thru maybe one half of the Greek. I especially enjoyed the paintings on the plates and vases. Here's a snake challenged image.

AnotherTry at Digital Angel

Ok, this time I switched to RGB or whatever, colors. OKAY! Look at the difference. Here's something even weirder that I discoverd. Click on the first digital angel, the one with the garish colors and it comes out normal What a quandry!

Digital Angel

Today I felt crummy. Either the common cold or West Nile fever, one or the other. So, rather than work on the new painting, I decided to see what I could do with Photoshop. Still needing to play with the colors more. but here's my first effort.
OK, this is too too weird. This image looks NOTHING like what I did and what I see on my computer screen. The colors are not just off, they are completely different. UGH, a photoshop mess.

Tired Angel: Finito

I feel very happy with Tired Angel. It took so long to complete and yet it's not a drag at all in the end. So I wasn't holding it up because of a vague dissatisfaction, like sometimes happens. I really do have to take better pictures.

Here's my sketch for a new piece, Animal Abuse. I haven't decided on the size. Usually I like to jam a lot of stuff into as small a space as I can paint, but this is kind of minimalist...for ME, and I might just go for it: do it as a 30X40. I have to add that I have a LOT of 30X40 canvases.

Tired Angel, almost finished

This is such a small painting, 18x36 but for some reason it's taking me so long to finish. Maybe I'm tired.

Return of Tired Angel

After a long wait, I'm back. Lots of apocalyptic but non-art related stuff going on here. Anyway, I'm working on Tired angel. I really want to add eyeballs.

Although most of you don't know her, here's Grace at her wedding. It was so much fun.
