This Painting really POPS!!! Oils on Canvas, 8x10, and I paint just so MUCH faster now :) I guess I don't have that fear to screw up anymore, I donno. But it was a fun little piece, painted from life in one quick sitting - I kind of intuitively came up with the olive/yellow background and pleasantly surprised myself. I'm very happy with this painting, everything really "works"! :)

Smoking Diva - mini painting on cardboard

This is about 4x6 on a cardboard box. (It's a neat box for storing your paints).
And here I decided to paint in the actual smoke (which I've never done before, and I think it should be done in airbrush)

Nude in acrylics

You can see that I have a newfound fondness towards acrylics. Now that I'm working fulltime, acrylics have been a saving grace for my artistic expressions, quickly and on a whim. I've been using my Very expensive Kolinsky brushes with them, which is probably not the best thing to do to your brushes, but so far I've been enjoying the process: it's quick and its easy! A child could do it! LOL

"My Sexy Gums" Song Lots Of Fun!
It's a little fun song I wrote -- you can play it on your guitar and entertain your friends with, especially at our age and time, when 15 year old girls are rushing to become the sexy divas that their dolls are; and in our modern day of artificiality and Botox-for-all.

Some people have sexy chest, now,
Some sexy buns,
Some show off in their black dress, now,
...But, I have sexy gums. Yeah, yeah. I have sexy gums!

They always call me for dinner,
Call me for lunch,
My sexy gums are a killer,
Other girls don't look like much. Yeah, yeah, They don't look like much.

Some people brag with their frame now,
Flattest of tums,
But I'll have none of their game, now,
Cause I have sexy gums. Yeah, yeah. I have sexy gums!

What they ve've got flashing will clock out,
Its not to stay.
My sexy gums are are a knockout,
At the end of the day. Yeah, yeah, At the end of the day.

Some people sway you with high brow,
Wrinkle-free chums,
But I don't have to be shy, now
With my super cute gums. Yeah, yeah, With my sexy gums!

"A quick bite" (Apple and grapes) - in acrylics!

I painted this in acrylics on a watercolor paper! I don't do acrylics very often; I really do enjoy the blendability of oils, and even their messiness. But it takes time to paint in oils! In comparison with my previous post's painting, it took me almost 8 hours to paint in oils; and just about an hour - in acrylics! You can see this was fast and spontaneous painting - "a quick bite" at apples and grapes. Acrylics are awesome!!! I have small issues with acrylics though - ones I have are not opaque. They are very, very transparent so it was really hard to get anything dark on. Think layers upon layers and really just working with the paint. Especially those initial layers, they never even looked dark enough, more like the transparent ghosts of the objects. In oils I don't have that struggle, in fact the colors mix way too easily and too permanently - but its harder to layer, b/s the paint is still wet, days or weeks on end. I still have to premix all my colors, though.
Since I started a new job, I have declared a hiatus on planned painting. No more. From now on, I allow myself to paint whenever I want, whatever I want, I "fire at will" :))) We will see what will come out of this spontaniety!

Green And Red (Oils on canvas, 8x10")

I'm back to painting! After painting a beach right on top of my door(glass door that connects my bedroom to my living room), I dreamily wake up to the imaginary sounds of turquoise waves splashing all about within foot's distance. And then off to painting I go! "Green and Red", is a work in progress on a gallery wrap canvas. Gallery wraps are canvases that are extra thick on the sides so you can paint those also for all intents and purposes. Give your painting an ultra dimensional look -- no framing required!
