Chilly Weather Ahead (from my Patreon Page)


Here is the physical painting project I mentioned planning on taking into the digital domain after some of my other projects near completion.  I still have the drawings around that I can scan in.  This painting has been sitting unfinished because I was not happy with the acrylic paints in creating the background.  I think this will be a good challenge for improving my digital skills.  The title will be uniquely me in humor.  It is called “Pardon me, have you seen a white rabbit?”.

As far as progress goes, I am becoming happier with the planet in my nebula picture and thinking about other add-ons for tweaks to the entire image.  Not much happening with the bull rider image yet; unfortunately, no ideas for dealing with the big blank area for the ground yet.  Given time, something will come to mind.


The Breath in My Lungs (from my Patreon page)

Art is the air I breath to survive.  Without it the world is dull and lifeless.  When I am tired, yet full of ideas, I get frustrated because my body denies my mind the tools to create its vision.  Lately, that is how I have been feeling.  So much art crashing upon the worn out shore of my body depositing flotsam and jetsam on my craggy coastline.

Finalized print details and I am now waiting to see the full size image.  Printer says there will be no problem doubling the size and using different paper.  When I decide I will get a quote on cost.  I really could use your support on Patreon to build up cash to purchase more proofs of the other images.  I am nearing completion of the planet project and looking forward to starting the Cheetah image.  I may also take a painting I have left unfinished for several years and bring it into the digital realm to see what I can do with it.  The painting is actually an animal scene with an arctic fox and polar bear, which should challenge my skills and show another side of my art.  Of course, there is still the bull rider project.  All said and done, there is a lot I want to work on with more always knocking.
