It was a very hot Summer, an I couldn't walk with Shelby outside. I feel very bad in a high temperatures.... so poor Shelby didn't have any activity.... She got very sad. I decided to fix this situation. I went to the Pet Store an got a pet for My Shelby - a little kitten named Dixie :-) Now Shelby has her very own cat, she loves Dixie, and so Dixie does. The play together, they sleep together, they eat from the same plate, and they are never angry on each other! Well.... I guess now I have one more model to pain/draw :-)
Today I also finished working on my office/art room.
I divided it on 2 parts.
Right side is for my illustrations, animation and graphic design/motion media computer, and I use it when I have custom order, of for fun.
I also have there my sawing machine, and all props for my sawing craft when I have mood for it.
and yes, yesterday I saw there the nightwear for Shelby :-)
In the left side of the room is my cozy nest for all kind of painting with pencils, watercolor, acrylics, and even oil.
All artworks have to be a small size. My big size painting activities are going on in my huge bathroom(photo to show is coming soon)
Oh... here is also place for my little puppy Shelby :-)
Really hot outside and even inside... feel so lazy to do anything...
I decided to paint my acrylic favorite style on 6"x6" canvas panels and see what happens. Usually I use acrylics for my big size stretched canvases only, and mostly for my whimsical paintings, so it's not a bad idea to change some art activities, and it might help me to feel different in this unusual weather... may be.. :-)
Here is my new puppy acrylic painting. Not too bad for the first time... :-)
Today I've got my sketch box easel! Very happy about it! Tomorrow I am planning to go to my plein air.
Unfortunately Shelby can't go with me yet because she doesn't have all shots needed yet. But she will have them soon. Any way I probably need my time to adjust myself to my new sketch box easel...
Can't wait till tomorrow.
P.S. Just finished my little Shelby
ACEO 2"x3" Markers, ink
Here is my new companion and friend Shelby. She is a brand new puppy, but she is willing to go with me to the plein air.
She is also doesn't mind to be my new model, which is very convenient :-)
This is an ACEO of my Shelby 3.5"x2.5"
I had a very hard period in my life... I lost my 15 years old dog who was my truly family member...
Now I am slowly coming back to myself. Tomorrow I am expecting a mail: I ordered on-line a new Half-Size French Sketch Box Easel, so now I can go out for the plein air with my new puppy :-)
I have several new ideas about how to make my style and technique more interesting, but right now I am so stacked with my new shadow box, so I want to paint still lifes again and again. Still lifes are not my best thing, but I wish to get better....
I always wanted...
