Hello and Good Monday to you all, I hope you had a good weekend.
We spent most of the time working around the house/studio, still trying to get everything sorted out and moved into place…moving, sheesh! It was so hot this weekend here, in Portland, we don’t get a lot of really hot weather so everyone here felt like we were gonna die. I spent a lot of time last week writing and recording so the painting was limited…but of course there was painting! Wanna see? Ok here we go…release the art…
“Flower Girls 2″ oils on canvas board 16″ x 20” HA! 2016
So, flower girls…yup, flower girls. I was reading poetry and getting my mo-jo worked up when they stopped by for a visit. The little one is full of spunk, she just chatted up a storm, she is witty and snarky. Wonderful friend to take with you anywhere…you know the kind of people that bring the life of the party with them? Yup, that’s her…the tall one…she is a little quiet, until you get to know her. She is very kind and she never forgets to bring the good wine. Gotta love these girls, they brighten up any day. They are available for purchase as soon as they are dry…and I finish the last few details, of course. 🙂 –>BRAVE HEART ART – name your price, get your art.
Surprise! That is a picture of Mr. Oswald West, aka Mr. Stinky Pants, my best buddy and studio mate. He says, “Happy Monday…my mom is outta cookie treats, it’s a travesty! Look at me! I am too cute to go without cookies. Send cookies or the cat gets it, don’t be fooled, I’m nine pounds of terror! I say Good Day!”
He’s a piece of work that one…squirrels and cookies… he is too damn cute so we continue with the art…. I hope you are smiling now. 🙂
Ok, this is my new WIP. this is the oil sketch phase so they look all weird with the under-painting. I am calling her “Come on, Universe. I Double Dog…”. oils on canvas 24″ x 30″ x 2″
What’s going on here? We were laying in the sun, catching some rays (lord knows she needs it)…put the music up in the studio and listened to some good old rock-n-roll. She’s pretty… she likes her music loud and the margarita’s strong. Before long she was topless and running around in just her towel and then, when she was stretching in the shade of the giant maple tree, I spotted her tattoo. Cracked me up. I wonder what she means by that? Might want to keep your eye on her. 🙂
That’s all from me this last week’s history. I am working on a lot of the poetry, this week…recording and editing. I also will be painting here and there.
I will NOT be over thinking all my problems, looking for solutions from outside of myself, or beating myself up for not having everything under control…it’s a goal. Show up, do the work, no apologies, I am not ashamed of what I really am…a hard working, all heart, fierce in soul…human. Bang that Gong, work continues.
