Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Thursday, July 19, 2007


This is my picture for Illustration Friday the theme is discovery. "Discovery" was made with watercolor pencils and my Gel-Roller on watercolor paper.

I got this one in just under the wire. It's supposed to be a picture, of one of those moments, when you discover things aren't exactly the way you thought they were.

Originally I was going to do a bunch of small sketches depicting moments like the one above, in all sorts of different locations, but I got so into the first picture, I decided to do a big watercolor of the first sketch.

This is the original sketch.

I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Even if it did take me all week to finish.

It's been a pretty emotional week for me. I think I had a moment like the one above. I was going to go into a lot of detail, but I'm tired and I have a big show tomorrow.

I did learn; Beware who you go into business with. (this refers to "Knife", not LW.) I also got a small raise this week and a heavy dose of, wake-up-dumb-ass and I sold a painting at a silent auction to benefit FFRT. It sold for $40.00.

Feet and Bonus Footage. This is the painting that sold.

Anyhow, Loves, I need some sleep.

When was your last moment of discovery? When was the last time you left me some love?

  • My last moment of discovery was finding your painting is actually on watercolour paper and not toilet paper. Love.

    catnapping: I tell ya, if I don't get something done right away, it usually sits around half finished for a very long time. I have about 300 half finished projects. :-)

  • congrats on your sale.. and I really like the expression on the self discovery!.... makes you wonder 'when' the skin went. (mind you we can look in the mirror some days and guess it probably happened one day at a time) Neat blog you have here and interesting reading as well.

    Thankyou for your comment
