I changed my mind

I wasn't happy with the watercolor so I touched it up.

Saturday, November 19, 2011


The watercolor portion of this painting is done, on to the acrylics. For this series I didn't want to use acrylics but I have changed my mind after the last painting. It just seemed to lack something.

One done and three to go. I'm trying to keep these bright and fresh and simple. I have been getting a little tired of the busy acrylic additions.

Pepsi Refresh Grants

My friend is in the running for the Pepsi refresh grant and needs your votes. Please go and vote. Her is a note from Khristee about the grant

My idea is to spread laughter to thousands of people through a month of free comedic plays.  This idea will impact 2,000 to 4,000 people in the San Francisco Bay area.

This grant will not provide all of the money that I would need to produce a production for a month in San Francisco, so I will be putting in some of my money too.  But I think it's worth it!

I hope you will support me, the arts, and the people of California by voting for my idea.  Please vote once daily throughout May and spread the word!

Wiggly Flower (not done)

The first problem I ran into was when I cut out the paper to the frame size, I didn't leave room to tape it down. I tape the paper down to prevent curling. Oops. I did the watercolor portion of one floral. Next step, acrylics.

It worked!

I cut into the crow feather but because I waited so long the feather was brittle and broke into several pieces.  with my never say die attitude I went a head and dipped it into the ink and began drawing. The results follow.
