WIP - 5.31.10

WIP of a current project on the concept of "community." Mine deals with the breakdown of community when people spend most of their time dwelling in electronic devices like computers, phones, texting, internet, etc. The girl in the image who is partially drawn is plugged into several devices via the tendril-like cables plugged into her head.

Coffee Painting 5.31.10

Today's offering is titled "Leaded" - a reference to the way Patrick Swayze took his coffee in the movie Road House. Since I'm planning on painting a ton of these, I need to get really creative with names.

Coffee. I drink a lot of it. I mean a LOT of it. Since I'm usually drawing, painting or thinking about doing that whilst holding a cup of the wicked brew, I thought I'd paint them. Everyday (or nearly so) as my warm up time in the morning I'll paint another one. Hopefully I'll have enough someday to have a friggin' show of all my coffee time warm-up paintings. Original idea? No. Fun? Yup!

I've been looking at the works of Erik Jones a lot recently and was inspired by his piece called "Hair." This little piece was fun and is one of the rare times I really use mixed media. This on was done in Golden's fluid acrylics, watercolor, ink and a little matte medium to seal it all up. I'm working on a series of these girls and hair images.
