Just Ducky

I'm trying something a little different here. I used liquid acrylics. I mixed them in a squirt bottle and tried to draw while squirting the paint out. It didn't work out quite the way I wanted. Plus there was some dried paint in the bottle that kept clogging the tip. But so far so good. I can work with this.

Post Cards

Inspired by Peggy Stermer-Cox I broke out my watercolor pencils. I whipped out a couple of post cards for friends. I had a little trouble with them at first, but started to get the hang of them after a bit. If anyone wants to do a post card exchange with me let me know.

Goat Head Soup

All done. The picture didn't come out so well. The blacks stand out a little more than the real deal. But you get the idea of the peice.

Further along

I have not been painting much this week as I have been very tired from work. But I got a little further along tonight.

Art Walk that night

The art walk went well. I was set up in the restaurant Sagi. Everyone there was extremely nice. And their food is fantastic, a good combo. Also I sold a piece. Woo Hoo.

Ridgefield Art Walk October 3rd and 4th

I will be in the restaurant Sagi for the art walk. I'll have 18 pieces there. The images below are from last year. In the second image you can see me in the bottom right in the brown and white striped shirt.

Join us in downtown Ridgefield on Saturday and Sunday for Art Walk!

Step 2

Funny, I had a certain direction I wanted to try with this piece but I didn't go there. Then I had to fight the urge to go in my original direction when I new direction pulled me. Always go with the piece. My words of wisdom for tonight.
