See You Soon

I will be going on a trip to a far away place. I will bring back a mind full of new ideas and inspiration. I will miss painting, but absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Super Sick

I'm so sick, haven't painted, so I'll post something old. This is Alice in Wonderland's bunny and a potion. Have a great Friday!

Creating a Background

I started Leave it All Behind II today. The original painting was done when I was coming out of a severe depression. When it was finished, I felt like a new person. Art is magical. I started the background process, take a look:

Up Next

I want to paint another version of a previous work, "Leave It All Behind". I want to do it in the style I'm painting in now to give it more depth. Here's a rough drawing of what it'll look like. You can also take a look at the original in one of my older posts.

Here Goes Another...

Purple Rain is complete. There are purple drops all over the place and the girl is just sitting around waiting for something or someone. The birdies are sending lots of love, or did the girl set them up to it? I had fun doing this one, the bold colors and the reference to one of my favorite songs.

Jet Black

Keeping with the idea of Liz Taylor, I've given her jet black shiny tresses. Love her, I really do! Check out her slick wellies, she's ready for all that purple rain that's about to come down on her. Bring it!

Oh, Elizabeth Taylor!

I chose violet eyes. All this news about Michael Jackson and his admiration for Elizabeth Taylor has given me the perfect color for this lovely girl's eyes. Oh, they're stunning! Happy Friday. Have a great sunny weekend.

La Chica

She looks kind of scary and ghastly but this is only temporary. I have to decide what color eyes and hair she's going to have. Her skin is darker than my last girl's, not as yellow as it looks in the photo.

Umbrella, ella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh...

I was uninspired for an entire week. Today I finally felt like I was ready to go back to all the rain. I started working on the umbrella. I chose pink, why? I have no idea since the background is pink too. I guess I can take it as a challenge.
