Long story short… my new fave canvas! Short story long.. my MO.. the finished piece looks nothing like what I envisioned 😂, I honestly don’t know why I bother pretending I’m going to adhere to a sketch #rebel
So.. I’ve been wanting to paint on a wooden panel forever… So I got this teeny tiny 6×6 to practice on 😍. I am also trying something a little different.. I really love my India inks.. somehow I want to use them.. I’m thinking mixing with matte gel medium??? I guess we will see how it goes! Ohhh!! And I also actually picked a color palette.. 4 colors, I used the color wheel and everything. Wish me luck 🙃
I hate when I am working on something, and I know it isn’t finished, but I am kind of sick of looking at it 😒. I guess I will put this duo away until artistic genius strikes, in the form of a vision.. dream.. auditory hallucination, or someone says “hey…you should give the snake arms and let him play a violin”. 🙃🙃🙃 I mean that is a strong possibility 😂
I have a favorite artist, actually the artist whose work I saw, that inspired me to want to create beautiful things. Honestly, had I not wandered into the gallery that day… October something in 2015, to be semi exact 😂, I would be racking up more debt working on a graduate degree that I wasn’t that excited about. It was just the “obvious next step” in my career path. Well long story short, I was able to meet him yesterday during a signing. I will never forget that awkward encounter 😂 and I wouldn’t change a thing.. except I think instead of shaking his hand… I would of hugged him. Maybe next time!!!
