Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to you all!
I spent all of yesterday baking, cooking and painting. Fun!
So what did I get accomplished you might ask?
Well, I made two pumpkin pies, baked some yams and made stuffing.
Oh and I also finished the watercolor on the “Three Fold Prayer” series.
I was able to finish the writing on the first piece “Persistence” however I haven’t had time to take a picture yet.
You’ll just have to wait until my next post.
Here’s a look at the recently added watercolor layer. Continue reading “Three Fold Prayer & Thanksgiving”
Lots seems to be happening around here even though I sometimes fail to realize it.
Here’s a look at what’s happened, going to happen and happening.
Happened-My art showcase at Edmonton Jam Space finished Oct 4th so I picked up my paintings from Jonny on the weekend. Things have picked up for him too so he hasn’t had a chance to set up the next artist for display. Those walls are going to look some bare. He offered to have me back sometime so I may set something up for the future. I did however leave him with a “Commission Flier” to stick up in case anyone wants their old guitar made over into art.
Going to Happen– Nov 15th, 2008: Shop in the Fort Trade show (I’ve already mentioned this one)
*New*-I have a gallery showing booked at the Dow Centennial Center’s Gallery for the whole month of February 2010. Sure it’s a ways off but hey it gives me LOTS of time to create new pieces and have old ones framed. Either way exciting.
Happening-I currently have 2 abstract paintings, 2 new watercolor series, commissions, and some abstract recycled jewelry on the go. Fun Stuff:
One of the abstract paintings you’ve already had a glimpse at and the other one I’m keeping until it’s finished.
I will give you a peek at one of the new watercolor series I’m working on.
It’s a three piece series titled: “Three Fold Prayer” and will be done in the same style as all my other watercolor pieces such as “Life Simplified”.
Here are the outline drawings and I’ll be adding the watercolor today with the hopes of starting the text on at least one of the pieces. Each piece is 9” x 12” on 195gms weight cotton acid free watercolor paper.
Back to work.
To commission the artist email her at themilkeway(at)gmail.com
Well, the guitar commission is finally finished and delivered to the customer.
I’m still not quite sure if I like it with or without the hands better,
but it doesn’t matter since the customer is happy with it.
Just for fun, here’s a look at the progress again:
2-Sanded and primed
3-background roughed out
4-background details added
5-addition of the hands
7-re-assembled, signed and sealed. Only thing missing are the strings.
Now it’s going to live happily ever after mounted on a wall for display.
If you’d like to commission a used or broken instrument for display, or any other artwork
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh and I’ve added a commission gallery where I’ll be putting all the artwork that I receive as commissions.
Cheers for now!
