Christina


Well a little more work on Christina, there is no end to the potential but I think she is decent for the moment.  Time to attend to others in more need.  Wish me luck.

Stare



Well I'm not sure how much more time I'm going to give this piece.  I need to start some work on a piece for the kilt and fiddle, almost time to paint downtown again :)

Expression


Well I've drawn another child photo.  This I think worked out better in terms of subject matter or the expression of the subject.

Pink




Well tonight was the last night at Mick's (the new Kilt and Fiddle).  I feel like I got some decent work done.  I believe through this opportunity there were many small steps forward in regards to my portraiture and technique.  In that regard, this moment I feel good and proud of my accomplishments.  So, now its back to the work of getting ready for placement, here is hoping for the best.

Blueness


Well today was a small step forward for me.  I've finally gotten over my fear of covering the whole canvas.  We still have a ways to go but, at-least she is starting to take shape.

Subtle






Well I'm finally done my ape piece. She's not perfect but I'm happy with her progress and some of the subtle undertones I've been working on really create a softer impression.  Now I can start some work on designing some work I intend to work on at the Kilt and Fiddle.  I'm thinking a nice rock band always a crowd pleaser.      

The Kilt & Fiddle



Well the owners of The Kilt and Fiddle have asked me to paint in their establishment again, I'm excited haven't gotten much chance of it of it in the past couple of weeks, it will be nice to get back to it.

If anyone feels like coming down for a drink, you know I'll always up for it, company is always a good thing.

The dates will be, the 23rd 24th and the 25th, from about 11:00am - 7:30pm, hope to see you down there.  :)

Legal

Because of legal reasons I've had to call back my pieces at ivy.  It's just not in my best intrests right now to make that move.  I wish everyone luck, I hope they do well, its a great idea that people should get involved in if they can, I hope you all will support them in getting off the ground.

Ivy Handmade Industries



Well a couple of friends are opening up a handmaid store in tecumseh mall, I have decided to join them in as a part of there venture,  I'll be exhibiting 8 large pieces.  Hopefully it does well, but because of an increase in commissions to the store, I've had to raise my prices.  So we will have to see if everything comes out in the wash, here is hoping.

Good luck to all involved.

Poem


Well I was asked to write a poem about one of my pieces.  

I'm not much of a lyricist but here is how it went.





Melancholy Moments 

Expressive wonder and all that that implies.
A painting is moment in time, 
something we want to capture, but gone the next. 

We try to name it put our words to it,
but through it we only find that our words are insufficient. 
Its only in our imagination are we free to dream.

So that even in the melancholy moments
 we can find our hope.
So thats what this piece means to me.

I hope you keep on dreaming and,
letting the sad in with the happy, 
because it is only then that we can enjoy those moments

Massaging once again





Well I massaged Cher and joss stone a little bit.  Part of being an artist is that there is always better out there its just if you have the skill to do it.

Massage





Just got back from Mick's.  Let just say subtly is not my strong suit, but I'm starting to see some value in it.  I just have to massage my technique.  Here are some of the pieces I started to massage.  Cher's colour is completely off but its on it way.

Ape Depth.




Well I've been working on giving one my paintings a little more depth.  Adding a more sculptural element to them.  Overall I'm really happy with the results but I have to wait on experimenting some of my favourite pieces.  

Thursday, May 10, 2012
