I love my Venice community!
I am so grateful to be surround in a active art community. These were some of my favorite art work /art studios, that I saw today. The Venice Art Block was the needed boost to push myself to produce more work. Plus, I had the pleasure to speak with local artist in person. The organic conversations we exchanged were a learning experience in itself. I’ve learned so much this well deserved Sunday. Thank you all that I spoke to, you’ve made my day!
Once again I’ve been busy with work to update, and I can think is chef Ramsey telling me, “what a shame…” Haha well hopefully I will get a routine down, where I can post new art!
Sooooo quick update: here is the fully done portrait I had trouble getting done in the beginning. Remember the ghost face, well now he is in the painting flesh! I still can’t figure whether to leave his eyes white or full them in. But in honestly I like how it turned out. As you can see I used a reference painting for this portrait and the similarities have now turn to differences. *Le sigh* what a handsome purple guy. Lol

So guys I had an idea to make a series of pin up stoner art. I’d like to introduce to you my Mary Jane Ladies. Each pin up girl will be in different themes which will vary in style. This whole series will be done on scratch board using scratching tools. As a result to complete the they will be up for grabs on my store. I have two down and one in progress. Ahh! Im excited about this!
Last night’s workshop resulted in this eery painting. When I started this protrait I scaled it to size and began with a medium tone of violet. Afterwards, I added in the darker areas. It began to look like an abstract with ghostly attributes. I panicked to revive what mistakes I had by shaping it with some white and medium undertones. The work shop was ending and the result looked like I painted a pscho, leather faced clown. In a way, I like the loosen brush strokes giving it a ghostly face. In addition, the stlye of how the painting turned out; reminded me of a Scary Stories illustration. Ill be working on this Thursday with a fun switch a roo from my peers I hope someone at the workshop can add to this painting it will be fun to see the turn out!!
"Don’t fall in love with an artist unless you’re a blank canvas, because they will paint upon the dark spots and write in the empty spaces of you even without meaning to, because their hands are dirty with paint smears, and ink blots, and wishful thinking."
