New Year, New Goals

This year just feels exciting. Welcome 2015!

I haven't been on the blog in about a months time because at a news paper, the Christmas season is extremely busy. That is what I do 40+ hours a week other than creating cute drawings and paintings. I work as one of the ad graphic designers at my local newspaper. I help bring real estate, car, auction, and all other ads in between to you (the locals) on a daily reading basis.

Anyway, I am announcing upfront on this blog that I am going to give my all during the next 3 to 4 months of creating a whole new image collection for the 2015 art licensing trade show. I want to try my best to produce a wide range of images, so I may be leaving the blog neglected for a bit. I only have so much time in a day left when I get off work after 5 or 6 at night.

Thank you in advance for understanding.

Landing

I sketched this piece out last night.
Watercolor paper, 9x12 with acrylics/watercolors/pencils
I tried to take a few more photos of the process, but I tend to mix colors and work pretty fast before they dry. That is the beauty and beast of acrylic paints. They are fast drying. As I make more of these on paper, I am learning different techniques and getting more used to the medium.

 And one picture to show you that I do have a helper. This time I decided to take a break because she was being pretty persistent.



 The title of this piece has changed three times today. Landing, the title of the blog post. Then light landing because of the reindeer landing on the light strand. The final title of this painting turned into Winter Magic.

This is the final picture. Thanks for stopping by.

Rethinking My Facebook Point of View

I decided to take my Facebook fan page down. I was only connecting to 2 or 3 people per post, and that is ridiculous. I have decided that I will be using blogger as my main posting site. If you are friends on my main Facebook page, you might see links to blogger. I apologize in advance if you feel my blog posting is too spammie.
