ELEMENTS Final: WIP so far


Together right now I have 4 paintings near completion, this is them alltoether.

The latest with some before and after.. sort of.

And my favourite painting so far is this one... with all the stages of the faces that gave me so much grief this past week.

And the final outcome is:

I feel like all of them are coming a long way.

food blog?

I did it.

I gave in.

Months of looking at Foodgawker made me do it.

I made a food blog! And it's here: Chopstick Community It sounds like it's only devoted to everything and anything Chinese, but it's not.

Go, follow, make, eat, and enjoy. :)

from my childhood series

There is something very exciting about watching a painting progress. After weeks of fretting and stressing over this project I feel like I'm finally getting it.

I feel like these paintings are slowly involving into something else. They're not only about my childhood spent at a restaurant in rural Carroll County nor just the fairytales I used to pour over inside the dingy closet at the back of the room. Something about these pieces frightens me, but I don't know what it is.

Some close up shots, and a sketch or two...

Look at how creepy these sketches are! Maybe it's a foreshadowing of my forthcoming doom.
Juuuust kidding, but really... are my paintings taking on a sinister feel? Or is that just me?

Drawing final: WIP

I restarted this piece twice- it used to be much, much smaller.

Both panels are 56" wide. The white part will be cut off. It started off with a fairytale, there were going to be elements and characters of various fairytales included throughout the piece, but it has since evolved into a landscape. Maybe. I'm thinking there will be 3 panels total, unless I find time for more.

Finals have brought me so much heartache these past few weeks.
