Acrylic and embroidery thread. I really enjoyed making this even though my fingers are sore and I had no idea what I was doing half the time. It was a slow lingering process. Very different from my usual speed-demon thing where I have an idea and I have to get it out right now. I can’t do anything with a needle or knots, so this was a challenge for me. Good times.
On May 7th, 2014 - my dog, Devereux, died from prostate cancer at the spritely age of almost 12.
I have painted something like 35 pictures since then - and some of them will definitely end up here, but as you can hopefully understand - I’m being slow about updating. Though it doesn’t help that I take my main photos outside and it’s been either windy or rainy just about everyday. For much more frequent casual updates - Instagram is where I can be found.
Last week I started playing with some basic abstracts inspired by the chipping nail polish on my fingers. I love just playing with colors and the varying thickness of paint application. The whole experiment has been full of playful energy. A great break after the more specific work of a portrait like "Jaimie" from the week before.
The originals are for sale in the shop, and I’m not doing prints of any of them.
It’s a rainy day - a sure bet that I’ll be drawing and painting.
