What a find ...












Went to an estate sale today. Got a ton of old oil paints. I don't use Bob Ross paints, but well, I will now. There was a ton of them, brushes that were still good, Turpenoid (gosh I really need that) a tin box with a ton of paints, a really old bottle (I love old bottles) and at the bottom of the tin box was an old inventory list as well as the guy's hand written Bob Ross instructions.

Last night, I was unable to sleep, and had the inspiration to paint this painting. Usually, I post ‘In Progress’ shots of my work, but this is not one of those times. The background in this painting, while it looks simple, took a considerable amount of time to construct and get right. What looks like simple brush strokes, really took a lot of time to blend. As someone who was raised in a cult, I didn’t leave it until I was in my early 30s. I left it when I was a teen, but came back to it in my early 20s. The dark effects of it still overwhelm me emotionally, and there are mental things that I just can’t shake sometimes. Imagine a guy lost in the woods, and there’s no escape from it. These woods are all he knows, and just as he escapes, a massive animal - a bear, or wolf - prevent him from leaving. If you’ll notice, the man in the painting has no feet ... they’re almost rooted in the ground. The bear corners him ... there’s nowhere for him to go. For me it was rough, but understand, it was far more terrible for women.

Work In Progress

Still a work in progress. I may do more on the clouds. In the background, I just put in the base color of the trees and the field. The entire area in the back seemed rather flat, other than the trees way off in the distance. I may kind of change some of that up though. I have a habit of painting in the colors because I'll forget what colors I used. Generally, it's on the back of the canvas, but lately I've taken to painting them on the front.

Work in progress


Still a work in progress. Clouds need a little bit more work, but I'm pretty happy with my work today.

Work in progress


Work in progress - just blocking in my lights and darks before layering in the details and color blocking.

New Book


Today, I got back the first draft of my next book. Just as the first one, it is PURELY a work of fiction and is not about anybody. I'm sure some dumb, vain bitch will claim it's about her. As always ... good luck with that.
