One more portrait.

Forgot to put up the last portrait. This one is done with acrylic paint on cardboard and sand paper. It kind of came out like a side walk chalk drawing.

Self Portraits

This first face is made with melted crayola crayons. I sat down at a table with a torch and went at it. A new way of coloring and it was alot of fun.
This one is all sewn together. I made a drawing on tracing paper and then with the sewing machine went on top of a grid of fabric I had also sewn together.
This was the first of six self portraits I completed. My dad got me the wood burner and I wanted to experiment with different lines and textures.
This one was gouache, sharpie and some yarn glued on top for extra emphasis. This was the final of the six and by this point, I was beginning to know my face more than I ever thought I would.
This portrait I experimented on more fabric but this time squirting ink right out of the bottles.

New Computer!

I finally got a computer after a whole year of waiting. I can update my work, but not until it loads on to the computer from my hard drive. Be on later tonight!

So I find myself still being lazy in the summer days. Still cleaning and trying to make space to do some kind of work. I opened my sketchbook for the first time in weeks today. Didn't do to much but it is a step in some kind of direction. I plan on getting a computer by the end of the month so I can finally post some pictures. And once I find my painting supplies (hopefully this week), I will get started with some new watercolor studies. I think I will work on some landscapes from around my parents house. Here are some pictures. One is a view of the pond and the other is a photo I took of my nephew while babysitting.
