One thing I'm looking for is a label machine, to organize and organize and do more organizing!!
Well, so far, I'm only a month into this goal and already I've had ups, downs, bumps, bruises, and all the motivation I can muster to keep hitting my goal. Right now, I'm a little behind, as I've missed about a weeks worth of painting, but I've done a lot to get me running smoothly ie. organizing my studio, my life, my schedule, etc.. Because I had a little dry spell, I decided last weekend to get to the library, and to Car's surprise I came out with a foot high of books I'm going to read in the next few weeks. Lets just say, I may be doing a few editorial paintings in the near future.
I'm currently working on a few side projects to help decorate my house such as: a photo wall (nothing traditional in the least. These are larger scale square vintage-looking photographs Car and I have taken), an empty frame fixture of style, I'm looking for some really old-looking wooden shutters, doors, or windows, and also a little decorating job in A's room. My budget for these is slim, so I haven't been able to execute them all, but when I'm done I'll post some pics.
As far as my current paintings go, right now, I'm painting a still-life(debating on a portrait) vertical painting. I'm going to play around with a little texture, maybe add some Orchids into the mix, and I'm thinking of adding a dramatic gesture. I've got a few good ideas and I'm working out the kinks now. I'm also working on 2 abstract pieces that will go in my living room. I'm kind of having a little trouble in that area because surprisingly it is taking more mind power than my portraits. Well anyways, that's all for now. Wish me luck!!
