Alright, so clearly I'm not very good at posting regularly...

...but it was the holidays and then a brand new year and so on and so forth. Contrary to what one might think based on my total lack of blog posts, I've been a busy bee in my studio and have a lot of new things I'm working on. Most of them aren't finished enough to post, but here are some of the more finished pieces:

I need to come up with better titles for my paintings, I end up usually just naming things based on content, but I'm running out of permutations of "tree boat tail city head."

I also just made a masthead from my friend's really nifty project (which you should contribute to!)
I also just submitted a piece for ANOTHER really nifty project. The piece had to incorporate the text "It is a pleasure to meet you," and it had to be done in black and turquoise. I have to say, I ended up liking turquoise a lot more than I thought I would. I went through a pretty intense teal period of my life somewhere around fifth grade, and I hadn't really revisited that particular uncertain place between green and blue since. Perhaps it merits a second chance?

On a more somber note, I did something really, really stupid a few days ago: I somehow managed to wander off halfway through the process of washing my brushes and ended up leaving my two favorite paintbrushes submerged in a jar of water for two days. They're totally ruined. Sigh. I had thought I was finally at a point in my life where I could maybe trust myself with nice brushes, but I guess I've still got a ways to go on that one. RIP long handled red paintbrush and tiny little maroon paintbrush. I'll miss you!

  1. Any time I see teal used in art, I can't help but think of southwest Native American peoples who use[d] turquoise in their art abundantly. That said, I think it's really pretty.
