I just realized that I had not posted anything for my $5 a month patrons. I ask for forgiveness since I have been fighting a sinus infection, which is making me queasy a lot. To make amends, I will post last weeks and this weeks pictures together.
The first image is a photo I did for art class back in the eighties. The title is “Healing the Dark Crystal”, which means it is a painting of the Gelfling Jen preparing to make the Dark Crystal whole again. This is one of the few acrylic paintings still around from that time frame. I loved working with the colors and contrast of light to dark. Also, trying to capture the translucency of the crystal was fun. Obviously, the image comes from the movie “The Dark Crystal” directed by Jim Henson after the success of Yoda in “The Empire Strikes Back”.
The second image is a collection of random drawings and sketches I have done over the years. There are a lot of skulls and a dragon. Also, an early study for the painting “Rodeo” that you can find on my Deviantart page. I started reworking “Rodeo” as a digital painting, but put it aside when the Tiger kept begging me to work on it and the fact that I could not come to terms with the background for “Rodeo”. Hopefully, as I work on other images, something will come along. Anyway, enjoy these scribbled ideas and painting from my past.
