I made this little painting today. The photograph is crappy because I shot it in ambient light without the flash. I've got to get a better camera or never take pictures indoors unless it's very sunny. In spite of the crappy photo, the colors are pretty true, so you get the idea. Little space flowers. I'm going to play with this palette for awhile. I realized today that this is my house palette! No wonder I like these colors.
It's cut on Tyvek! Kathleen said it's a wonderful medium for stencils because it cuts like paper, but because it has these tough fibers woven through it, it's really durable. And it's washable. Not that I plan on washing my stencils very often, but that means that they won't be destroyed by liquids.
Here's the painting I was working on earlier this week. I don't love it, so I'm just going to move on to the next thing. I'm practicing non-attachment. I don't want to love or hate anything I do; I just want to keep making.
I am getting a little more comfortable with a brush, so that's good. Dammit I wish I could afford to take more art classes!
(Holy mother of god. I just fixed the most egregious spelling error. Thank you, husband. )
