Ok. I'm really not good at this bloging thing. I had my suspicions before I even started, but now they are officially confirmed. I have been busy since I last posted. I graduated, got a job (not in the field I graduated from), got a girlfriend, got bills, and I still need to figure out how to paint better. According to internet questionaires I'm under a lot of stress, I'm depressed, I'm anorexic (?), and I have an I.Q. on par with Albert Einstein. I'm sure some parts are true to a certain extent, but come on, anorexic?
Anyway. I submitted some work to the Spectrum anual competition. I doubt I willl get in though. My printer craped out on me and won't print full page images on nice paper without faulting. I had some copies made, but they turned out sub-par. I still tried though, so I'm a winner in someones book, right? Reguardless, here is the image I sent in. I tried to paint it entirely in acrylics, but the background clouds were atrocious so I had to repint that. I then touched up the reast of the image with oils. I miss that medium. Now if I could only find a GOOD way of painting acrylics on top of the oils, I would be very pleased... until I messed something up.
On a personal note. I will try to post more often for the sake of doing something productive outside the realm of my inner self.
