I’ve been working, working, working!
Cloud of Chamomile
Acrylic on canvas, with all sorts of metallic micas and rich dyes and glazes to get that shimmery bright translucent color. I love how all those little flowers came out.
There have been many paintings and sketches and things going on around here. Sometimes I forget to share.
All this week I’ve been working all on magical new things: Mermaids, and faeries and angels to be exact… and in 3-d! I’ve been covered in paper pulp and paper clay all week. I forgot how much I loved sculpting – I haven’t done it since college. I can’t wait to share! There are fishes and new paintings to share as well, still, I only have a video camera and scanner, no regular picture camera!
So what do I do? Decide to shoot videos!
Am I trying too hard, doing too much? Painting, gourds, sculptures, video… I really want to make stop motion animation films too. Who needs sleep?
When I thought about videos, I really wanted to do something that is like Good Eats, but with art. I don’t really know anything about video so it is very very slow going. And frustrating! Still, I am painting a small piece and documenting the process. While I am learning how to use the video camera and editing software I made a video of me flipping through two of my sketchbooks.
It’s fun, frustrating, and sort of addictive.
