variations on a theme

I was bugged by the background - I took it out. With sandpaper.

Much better. Will try to finish it up tomorrow.


still working

I seem to be having an awfully hard time with this one. I think part of the problem is that it's such an ad-hoc set-up - I have to invent so many details and I get kinda lost.

Anyway, I have to finish it this weekend.

I can't get into my closet.

that's better.

Here we are, re-compositioned (somehow I doubt that's a word).


Much better, even though it's obviously still in early stages. And there's no red in the painting yet - just in the picture.

I desperately need to repaint my studio.

I couldn't figure out what was wrong with the bear (except for the fact he's unfinished). I kept adjusting the colors... I was sure the proportions were right - everything just kept getting murkier and murkier - and then it hit me - it's composition problem. The scribble at the right is a much better layout.

Which means I have to start ALL OVER AGAIN.

I'm going to go have a chai latte to make myself feel better. I don't care how late it is.

skates finished!

whoo-hoo! This picture is a little dark, but pretty close - and a lot more accurate than the one I took with my camera phone. Doubleclick the picture to get a larger view.

I'm really pleased with this one. I guess it pays to take my time with things.

Why do I have the funny feeling my mother is laughing at me?

skating into february

it's a work in progress - it will probably take me the rest of the week to finish it off - but it's a good start.

And I wouldn't want you to wait an entire week for a new post, now would I?

Now go think up a clever name for these "object portraits".

Yes, that means you.
