New Work In Progress

Wow, I haven't posted in a long time! I guess that means I haven't been drawing enough...shame on me!! But I'm in the groove again, preparing for my first Solo Art show!! YAY! I will be showing in the CSUF Student Union in January. I'll be sending and posting details when it all starts coming together.

In the mean time, I'm working on some new art to fill all the space I've been given for the show. I have a few new ideas ready to go already and a few more brewing in the pot. I've decided to give painting another try, and so far it's been a good experience. I'm taking on acrylics for now. Somehow it doesn't seems as scary as oils. But maybe I'll get there eventually. A lot of people complain about the paint drying to quickly but I happen to like least so far. I also did a little research and I'm trying out some mediums to mix with the paint. Right now I'm trying out Liquidex Flow Aid. I give it a thumbs up! I mix in a couple drops to my water cup and it really helps with the flow of the paint (obviously) and makes it easier for me to work up thin layers of paint.

Above is my first completed little painting. It was kind of a test painting, but I think it came out nicely, so I'll probably put it in the show. Next on my list are two larger paintings...probably 11x14 or maybe a little bigger! I might not post those though, and save them for my show to be revealed. ;D I have to create some interest in coming SOMEHOW!
