I took a nap and ended up with a tension headache. Luckily, I found the perfect activity to get rid of it. Sigh. I miss being artsy.
I just found this on my SD card. A few years ago, I was teaching one of my nieces (under 6 years old) how to mix color with a plastic knife. She made this instead.
Some time past midnight, I started scraping off old oil paint off my palette and doing this. I doubt this will dry in time after I’m done with it but someday it will go to its owner in Europe. Someday.
For the last few days, I’ve been making random art. Whether it’s because I have left over paint and an old canvas, a sketch that got stuck in my head, or an old painting that needed to be touched up, I’ve found the process both relaxing but draining. This, I alternated with studying Computer Science by watching hour long videos on data structures. It has been very nice of Vicky’s roommate to lend me his studio while he is in Europe. Next project, as you can see from a photo above, is a three panel painting (6” x 12” each) in oils.
Today, I am going to see if I can get my computer some extra memory. I can’t even use my applications anymore! I have some digital work I owe some friends. Hang tight! I haven’t forgotten.
Another alternative to Starry Starry Night. Midday!
Reverse Starry Starry Night. Sunrise!
Doodling Vicky at his work desk. Seems like this sketch can give birth to sketching a different way with color. Happy 4th of July!
i probably should pay attention in class instead of to my muffin.
