Drip Drawings

For these drawings ink was splattered into the raw canvas then drawings of porn starts were draw within the drips. I liked the randomness that dripping gave me and the peek-a-boo nature of the drawings. Though some interpretations included domestic violence and dirty laundry.

Every Tuesday I post an older work from my portfolio or a sketchbook drawing. It is important to look at our previous work so that we can see how we’ve grown and improved.

Some nice little stripped panties. I love making these simple little drawings.

Get ready for a new series of paintings. I’ve got balloons party hats and streamers all set up and ready to party. Now I just need to find the remote for my canon camera and I’m ready to rock and roll. Aw yeah, this will be fun!

So I missed the mark of painting everyday this week, but I hope to get a bit more caught up this weekend. My big to-do for the weekend is to have a photo shoot so that I have much more reference images to choose from.

I’ve. Just. Got. To. Go. Paint!

I know I’m not the only one who has trouble getting to work in the painting studio. Of course I just want to go and relax all night! It’s so fun just to sit in my pajamas drinking a cocktail and browsing the internet, or watching TV. I never seem to be in the mood to paint before I start actually doing it. I want to make artwork, but finding the motivation to get off my ass and just do it is a different story. In fact, I’m having trouble doing it right now!

Some action needs to be taken. I have goals I want to accomplish, and time passes whether I’m working towards those goals or not. Like it or not a year can pass. If I’m closer to accomplishing those goals depends entirely on taking action now and being consistent throughout the year. It’s sooo daunting, but I know I’ll feel amazing when I see my paintings finished and hanging in an art show.

No one is going to give it to me, I have to take it!

Success doesn’t usually just fall into someones lap. You can be the best at something but you aren’t guaranteed success unless you are taking action.  Seriously, name me one successful painter who didn’t put in the hours in the studio.

Today i found a couple art shows that I want to apply to. I’m a bit nervous though because I’ve never applied to an art show before. There were a couple shows when I was in school but I didn’t have to worry about shipping or entry fees.  It’s a little overwhelming.

I think submitting my work to a gallery and having a deadline will really push me to make better paintings. I’m sure I’ll learn tons even if I don’t get in. The only thing I’ll lose is the entry fees (which are $30 and $35 dollars)

Wish me luck!

Okay, I know I missed a day of posting. I got really lucky though because on Tuesdays I have this blog set up to automatically post one of my older paintings or drawings.  Aw yeah!

Still, I’m starting to fall behind with my paintings, I feel like I haven’t finished a new work in days. I have a handful of paintings started but I just haven’t been working on them this week!  At the moment I’m trying to decide if I’ll try to finish up my commission that I’m working on or if I should work on one of my originals. I only have 3 hours to paint tonight so I don’t really have the time to do both.

Either way I’m gonna be painting tonight!
