This is precisley how you accentuate your man hands.
Also, K-Town, you ready for dez baby bangs? No? Didn’t think so..
florelle2 better not tell/show Mama.
And so it begins.
(Yes, I am indeed watching Robin Hood.)
I want to watch this seventy times a day.
She’s probably my favorite woman who has ever existed.
The segment that starts around the 35 minute mark is the best film footage I’ve ever seen.
I want to psychoanalyze this.
Necessary snow photo.
So my painting class is officially over :”( Must document my work and post it on a serious portfolio website (sorry tumblr).
Is it too late to make a new year’s resolution?..
I usually hate those, BUT this one really needs to happen:
I vow to make at least one sketch a day (even if it’s just a squiggle on a sticky note), and post it on this wall. Goal is to cover half of it before going back home for the summer.
Can I just mention that I found a massive bug on the adjacent wall just before posting this… What the hell could that possibly mean..
"Paris Was A Woman" — documentary by Greta Schiller about women (artists and writers, amongst others) who lived and worked in Paris in the 1920s.
Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, Adrienne Monnier, Josephine Baker, need I mention anymore names?! Watch watch watch!!!
Acrylic on canvas board, 16x20in.
Triptych of the same canvas reworked over the course of my fall semester.
This is a little experiment/exercise I’ve set up for myself to document my attitude at various points during a stressful, hectic semester.
To sum it up briefly:-
Left: Third week of September. Bright; full of hopeful, brash, excited brushstrokes.
Middle: Sometime around midterms, November? Not so bright… Melancholy, ghostly vacant windows.
Right: Post finals/grades received. I just finished this actually. This one is obviously much more relaxed, relatively untroubled. I also had enough focus to put in a few details.
Ghetto DIY easel, for when it’s snowing and you’re lazy and thrifty.
Made of: styrofoam slab, balsa wood, two ballpoint pens (for stability, duh.) masking tape, and two toolboxes filled with a bunch of heavy crap.
Made myself look like a shocked, round-nosed version of my sister *sigh* I’ll revise this in a few days. Please punch me if I decide to buy another canvas this miniscule.. Man I forgot how easily oils blend!!! I don’t usually paint this softly (yes this is actually soft compared to my acrylic work!) I have something else I’ve been working on for a while, I’ll post that tomorrow if I manage to rework it.
