30 More Paintings

Well, I don't quite have 30 paintings to post.  I photographed 28 last night.  So, I've been doing art, just not posting it.  I've been neglecting my online presence in favor of a social life.  Here's some things I've learned about life in the last month:

  • Women love duct tape pants.
  • I find video games much less interesting than I used to.
  • Jamba Juice is delicious.
  • Eight hours is too long to drink coffee.
  • Whiskey and water gives a mild hangover.

Oh, I'm going to have some paintings is a charity auction, Burlesque for Peace.  I haven't picked out what I'm donating yet, but they split the proceeds with me 50/50, so I'll give them something good.  A friend of mine sold something there for $400, so maybe this could be a good thing.

Here's a few things I've learned about art this month:

  • Use prismacolor colored pencils for underdrawing.  Because it's waxy, it doesn't mix with paint.
  • Bruce Lee quotes about Kung Fu apply 100% to painting.  " The less effort, the faster and more powerful you will be."
  • Home Depot sells the best paintings surfaces.

Here's the art.  I'll make some of the highlights bigger and post the rest in a clump.
