Post script and crooked lines

Here's some more art going into letters.

This is what I imagine my loneliness looks like right now, but I could be wrong. Originally I was gonna call it "Rest Well Under Mother's Warm Wings", but now I am gonna call it "Dali's Ecstasy after cast Gala from the Cliff"

Tori then asked me to draw a tea party gone wrong. I couldn't think of anything really except for this. It might just be wrong. Hahah. I can't wait to start my painting. I think it will take my mind off of things.

I wrote a four word letter

Here is a drawing I did that is going in one of the letters I am sending to friends.

Just some stuff I did today


The first one was me playing around with the watercolor. She is very fleshy and Rubeneste. I like her a lot. My watercolors are basically me drawing with water. Everything is very sketchy and multi-directional.

The second one I was playing around with color and the medium. It reminds me of Matisse, but again. I was just playing around. I have no real desire to do anything with watercolor ever, except play around. It seems kind of funny to me that my favorite artist used the two things I like to use the least the most. Ohh Egon, you saucy man, you.

Then I just sketched a little bit in preparation for the sketches for my next painting.

Virgin Mary Painting - Virgin Mary is impregnated by God through a ray of light. The corpses around her can symbolize a lot of things including the fact that the Union has cause countless deaths over the centuries. The printing press wheels and gears are to recommend that the whole thing is a well oiled machine. I am pretty happy with the way the rocks turned out.

The next piece is based on the Terrordactyls' song "Facelift". I did it in a traditional portrait style with a solid background. The body is shifted to the left side of the wood, because I wanted to put her there. There is heavy amounts of impasto in her skin and hair. This is the first painting that I have done start to finish in one day.

Here are some sketches:


Body Sketches in preparation for my next painting:

That being said my next painting is going to be the largest one I have ever done. It is also gonna be the first painting that I am doing for myself to keep (I have never kept any of my own paintings.) I am excited about it, and you will probably see tons of prelim sketches and studies here.

Distance makes the heart grow fonder.

Here are some sketches from the past week. Some faceless girls for the "Facelift" painting. Some sketches and musings, and of course some torsos.

This is a drawing from a letter for my friend
