Lorie's Got a Face!

I had a breakthrough in painting yesterday. I decided I'd better just pick up the paintbrush and start mucking the paint around because it wasn't going to paint itself. Plus I could always paint over it. Luckily I hit a groove and little Lorie's face turned out great. I still have to do the hair, shirt, and rest of the painting, but the first grader's face was the hurdle I was trying to jump.

Back to Painting

I thought I'd start posting parts of paintings, since I don't like to post the whole painting until it's done. I've been working on this double portrait of a friend on and off for several months. I just painted the nose yesterday after not painting on it for over two months. I thought that maybe posting the progress would force me to paint more often.

Plinki the Bunny Carrot

I know it's been a while since I last posted. Did things like got engaged and stuff. Went to a great craft show today called Felt Club today which had a ton of fabulous hand-made stuff ranging from t-shirts to stuffed bunny carrots (we bought one shown above with my son Christian). It's inspiring me to get creative again (the craft show, not the carrot).
Trying to get back into the painting, but in the meantime, I'm selling some prints of my paintings on etsy under the name franticmeerkat. Hoping to get some of the prints made into magnets to sell, too.
