    The Graduate

    May
    30
    2006

    Here’s the face-through-the-hole graduate that I just finished up for the PreK graduation ceremony… being held in one hour…phew! The high school shop class cut the wood, the high school art class drew the grad, I just redrew the hands and painted it in acrylics for the school (really, I did it for the kids!).

    I’ll get a pic of the actual graduate tonight, I hope. The eldest couldn’t wait to get her head in there.

    Stroke My Ego

    January
    28
    2006

    Did you know? Every once in a while (ahem. shut. up.), every artist needs to have their ego stroked! Yes, it’s true!

    Today, it’s my turn. If you don’t mind, let’s play a game of “pretend”!

    First, you either know or don’t know the history of Johannes Vermeer. If you don’t, let’s pretend you do! If you do, wonderful!

    Since we’re talking about Vermeer, let’s talk about his painting, The Girl With A Pearl Earring. A captivating girl, and my favorite painting of all time. Obviously, because not long ago (well, it doesn’t seem so long), I painted a tribute to Vermeer’s painting.

    Now, let’s pretend you love it to pieces! Pretend you’re captivated, you’re standing in an auction house and this (my version, heh) just came up on the auction block. The auctioneer is going over my palette, only 2 colors off from the Master’s, he’s saying how famous I am and how well known. (haha! We’re pretending! It’s okay!)

    Now pretend you really have to have this painting. And pretend your checkbook doesn’t mind how much you wanted this painting, because your checkbook agrees! HAVE the painting, it screams! Go for it!

    The most important part of this game, pretending my comment box is you raising your hand and placing your bid!

    How fun is this! You can bid, but it’s not for real, but pretend it is! Which means in real life there are no kadjillion dollar amounts.

    So, bidding starts at ONE DOLLAR (and is not for real so if everyone says one dollar, cripes, NO you can’t have it!)

    Ready, set…

    BID!

    Church Mural Completed

    January

    2006

    Remember the Church mural I started back in October? Well, I finished it today. Have a look:

    The wall space is 8 foot by – I don’t know – 12 foot? It took a while to finish, but I’m happy to have that scratched off my to-do list.

    I came home to a couple of birthday packages, so I’m all excited! I have to go make some phone calls and then get back to business, my first official project as a designer for EW is coming along really cool and will be finished some time next week. I’m all excited to make it perfect for the portfolio!

    Tomorrow, though, I’m not workin’ at all. Takin a day off, finally.

    Maybe.

    Well, I’ll try.

    Photos With Santa

    December

    2005

    This is what I did today, it’s a photo backdrop for the elementary school to use for Photos with Santa in a couple of days. Not only did I paint this thing – which by the way covers a good part of my studio floor at about 8 feet wide by 4 feet high – but I’ll be the photographer for the event, too.

    The most important part of this backdrop, of course …
