Where Am I Going With This

original art lizardo This is one of my favorites! (Well, right now...until the next one. LOL) I have been playing with different techniques and now I am starting to get the effect that I want. If you saw what I was doing in the beginning, you would have no idea it would turn out like this. I had no idea it would turn out like this but it just came together today.

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!
