The Illustration Friday word for this week was TWISTED. It was Friday, Feb. 14, Valentine's Day and I was in the spirit so I just started playing around with my Wacom tablet and this is as far as I got. I couldn't figure out what to do next so I'll let it simmer and maybe someday I'll have an ah-ha moment and work it out. Maybe I'll pull it out next February, polish it up, and type Happy Valentine's Day across it.
I've been working on a couple of oil paintings this week but haven't completed anything for a while.
Here's my basement studio. Nothing fancy like the one with tall ceilings and skylights that I imagine having one day, but I'm grateful for it. This is where I do any messy work like oil painting.
This is my living room studio that takes up half of my long narrow living room. I don't like having to be in the basement all the time so we set up an art table here a little over a year ago so that I can feel more like part of the world and not a mole.
I've been getting back to writing again this year and can often be found in that big comfy chair with my notebook and a Bic pen. I'd like to share more of my writing blurbs here in the future. I'm just trying to work up the nerve.
