Ah yes, I remember it well. . .

Prom stole it from Paul's blog. Now I am stealing it from her.

"please post a comment here on my blog with a completely made up and fictional memory of you and me. Anything you want—positive or negative—but the original said please keep it clean but you don't have to do that here. And remember: it has to be fake! After you've left your comment, post this little paragraph on your own blog—and be surprised (or mortified) about what people don't actually remember about you."

Here is to hoping I am more productive

In an attempt to get my self motivated again to paint/draw, I have posted the initial sketch of a polar bear that I have wanted to paint for a while. For this, I want to try something a bit different. I am going to use watercolors, something that I am not very proficient in, and augment the painting with pastels, something that I am more comfortable using. It could be cool, as I have seen some nice pictures done in this technique. Or it could be a big mess, but at least I am attempting to stretch myself. And isn't that what this is all about?

Either way, I will post the picture in stages. . .let's see what happens.

An older piece

In a effort to be more active on this blog, I have dug through some of my older work. I am really surprised that I have not posted this one before. This is the only painting that I have done on artagain, a thick black fiber-enhanced paper. The black paper gives this piece a neat and ominous air.

As always, this is something I should try/use more often.
