I am looking forward to 2009. I am turning 30 in six months and I am actually excited about that. First of all, because I am celebrating my birthday in Vegas. How fun is that? And second, because I have always thought that I would be smarter when I turned 30. I'll let you how that goes...LOL
I hope everyone has a really happy new year!

I know this sounds kind of crazy but it has worked for me on more than one occasion!
I love this painting now but it started out pretty bad! I mean, really bad. I felt like crap just looking at it. But now it has a level of depth that I really appreciate.
So what are you waiting for? Why not pull out an old canvas that wasn't working anyway and see if you can paint the worst possible painting in the world? You may be suprised at the outcome!

Red Stripe, 2008.
TMI about my life...
Thursday, November 13, 2008
When I paint I like to work on several at once. Mainly because I like to do something while I wait for it to dry and jumping around between paintings keeps me from getting blocked. If something isn't standing out, I move on to the next and then keep hopping around until something gets done. It works for me. It wasn't a good process when I had a design class and had to work on a single thing in the classroom. But when you are painting out of a garage, it's great. LOL
Tonight is wierd because I am home alone and just hanging out. It's kind of nice actually. I am trying to watch 30 Rock because Tina Fey is in it and she was hilarious as Sarah Palin. I don't really like to sit and watch TV though so I am kind of listening. Sounds like it could be funny. I'll probably never know.
I have some new techniques that I am ready to try. I have been wanting to play with transfers for a while now and I have been gathering some images that I want to use. The Cathedral at Duke University inspired me so much. It is so gothic and huge and detailed. There is a dark feeling there but not a bad one. I can imagine it could be quite creepy at night. Anyway...I want to use some of those images. Don't know how it will work but that is what makes it fun, right?
This painting is available in my etsy shop. Stop in and take a look!

It's pretty easy to display these works. Just put them in a picture frame. I am currently using black ones from IKEA - nice and simple. They look good in groups. I think it is nice to put art in unexpected places.
This is one of a series of small works with heavy texture. I am calling it the Landscape Series. I know it is not the typical greens and pretty trees and all but I kind of see it as a topical view. Maybe the red is like a tornado warning. I don't know. This is exactly why I don't analyze my art. The last few sentences made absolutely no senses. I call it the Landscape series because that is what I thought of when I did the texture. So there. :)

My life is pretty normal. I am going to school for accounting (don't ask! lol) and I bartend part time at a really nice hotel (not naming any names.) I like to go to concerts, go out to eat and attend art events. I really like going to see art on nights when they keep the museum open late and make it into a party of some kind. I'd rather go then when you can be a little louder and talk to your friends and generally have fun while looking at art.
My art is mostly about my curiosity. I like to find new ways of adding texture to my paintings...the more the better. I like playing with colors and I like using several shades of the same color in a single painting.
Enough about me for now...lol.
