Friday Blahs.

Made 6 smalls today (4x4s and 3x5s, respectively.), and did background color for 6 8x10s.

Some part of me wishes to be insane enough to spend 10+ hour days in the studio. The reasonably more sane part says "To hell with it! It's Friday!", and goes out with the hubby for a pizza and a pitcher of beer.

Not sure which part of it is right.

Mother Nature

A little character art for the Art of Wrenliness.

The Art of Wrenliness #20

#20 and #21 were sketched out at roughly the same time as #10, hence the dip in quality..

Since July is travel-month, 'll be focusing on the Art of Wrenliness for the next couple of weeks, also doing a pair of small paintings per day to compensate.

First two.

The Art of Wrenliness 17 & 18

Believe it or not, 'm still painting. Mostly duplicates/small floral stuff. Have a studio space again, but it will be some days before the dust settles.

Obligatory kitty

The face's wonky, but I can't figure out the issue for the life of me.

The Art of Wrenliness #16

Finally got a chance to use the Moonfish bugger in a setting. :D

Obligatory owlet.

  "Bad Morning. Go Away."
8x10 inches
Acrylic on board

Painting has been slow recently due to setting up/being present for/taking down the St. Paul show. (It went well. Sold seven pieces, among them, Cradle of Life-- which 'm genuinely sorry to let go of.) Setting up for a duo show in town on Wednesday. This is an example of work by the other gal:

Cradle of Life---

Into the trees.

Progress shot.
12x24 inches, 18 hours in.

Wrenliness bulk update (13-15)

Can't believe that I'm still drawing that bloody thing. ... Maybe the novelty will wear off after 20?

"Intent to Kill" and "Expressing an Opinion", both 5x7, acrylic on board.
Still working on the bluebell piece. For the title, I'm thinking: "Into the Treeeeeees!" ;)

Lack of updates.

Blame the lack of updates on the duck that's been hanging out out back.
Also, on a complete mess on the work-bench.
