tons o' stuff

i must have misplaced my painting skills because today has been an up hill battle. i guess that's what i get for not painting in what has mostly likely turned into months.

i got this awesome new "palette" at a thrift store while i was visiting the family around easter and today is the first day i have put it to use. the "palette" is actually a glass plate! the slight inward dip is great because i like to work with lots of water and i'm always spraying my palette down. i am without a doubt in love with it thus far. of course the real test will be when it's time to clean my new palette, but i have high hopes.

next! i was doodling in my sketch book of course and a couple of doodles led to this little house which i am also in love with.

i found the perfect square piece of wood my landlord had thrown out the other day that begged to have the little house painted on and and thus far looks like so:

...to me the painting has lost all the charm the doodle had...which makes me sad. :sighs: i will try to revive the little painting, but it might just be a lost cause at this point because it is not going in the show.

also did some rearranging of the studio space again trying desperately to find a happy balance between relaxing bedroom and functional painting studio. most likely also a lost cause, but that will probably never stop me from trying. the idea was to find a space for the easel and leave it up and paint on it...but i guess i'm too much of a lazy arse because i like to sit and paint. so once again i ended up on the floor. on the brightside i managed not to get any paint on the carpet. go me.

lastly here is the stuff that i'm working on with thoughts to put in my upcoming show on the 13th of june. still slowly working on the same colored pencil piece. a little at a loss for the ribbon which too a turn for the worse/confusing when i wasn't paying attention.

also a painting of a dress form in acrylic on canvas. it is beginning to look a lot more morbid that i thought it would turn out. i guess that just shows you where my head is at these days. i've been wanting to try out doing more dark and deary pieces so i guess this is where it begins.
