So, I’m pretty happy these days. I don’t wanna toot my own horn here, but my boyfriend is pretty cool. Got me a new desk, cause after we moved I haven’t had a proper one to work with. Now I do. It’s actually better than my last one, which I loved.
It’s spacious, with a lot of room for all my pencils, paints and whatnot.
Anyway, just a short post on that. More works are coming. I’m just really happy. 🙂
There’s a saying in my family, though, well, I am probably the only one using it, so ‘family’ is a stretch, but it sounds better than, ‘Oh, I have a saying, it goes…something something wise sage’.
It goes; “The beavers are restless tonight.” And it means that things are amiss, and you should be on your guard. Especially for rodents, if you live in the city.
This is all just bull. Tho I do use the above line now and then. Mostly in my writing. I do have more rodents though. Told ya’ll they’d crop up everywhere.
Anyway, writing is still good. I actually passed 100k (103 now but who’s counting) not too long ago. That felt like quite the landmark. In fact, one of the plot lines I began WAY at the start of the book now came back full circle just as I imagined it. Overjoyed at that and how it turned out. Proud even.
So, I’ve been working on this new painting for a while, and all in all I guess I’m satisfied with it. I have this thing where I’ll make stuff, be really glad with the progress and how it looks. and then when I actually finish it I don’t like it that much anymore.
People tell me diffrent tho, so that’s good. Christian is always impressed, particulary with this one, but doesn’t he always have to be impressed haha
I do like to title my works, and I usually know that title early on, for there’s mostly something that sparks these ideas for images I get, but this one in particular just sort of came out of nowhere. In any case, this one is titled ‘Don’t know where I belong‘.
Yeah, so…there it is. Don’t really have much else to add. So, you know, just gaze upon my artistic wonders! :O
Also, Christian went by a week without updating the blog. Dishonorable! For shame!
And you’ll float too! *insert eerie, creepy laugh*
Found myself pretty bored today, so I decided to do a quick painting of the awesome Pennywise the Dancing Clown, from Stephen King’s IT. Feels weird to introduce this, cause doesn’t everyone know this character??
Anyhow, spent a few hours on it, and just on a normal sketchpad, A3 sized, using acrylic paint. I love Pennywise, and so does Christian, so it was fun to do. Nice to finish something that quickly for once, despite this only being something short to work on to pass the time.
Doesn’t that new remake look terrible? Christian is actually keeping an open mind on it. What a loser. He could join the Loser’s Club…
A picture is an intermediate something between a thought and a thing
Samuel Coleridge said that, supposedly. In any case, I like it. Good quote.
I like to get things out with my painting. A way to deal with emotions, stress, and just life in general. There’s a lot of thoughts, and a lot of pictures that come from them. Hence the quote.
Not that this really matters for this post. It doesn’t concern any paintings that stemmed from any deep thoughts or relations. Other than, I enjoy Jonathan Davis and everything he has to offer. As such, here is a painting of him. It’s an older one, but if we’re doing this blog thing, then I should show everything I’ve got.
A large part of why I paint after images sometimes is because I’m always looking for ways to improve. I don’t want to toot my own horn here, but my skills have greatly improved since this particular piece. You’ll see, wink wink.
