More Still Life for Thee.

Here's one from the 9/13 class session.  DS Lite, baby. Painter in your pocket.

Still Life with DS.

Last night was a great class session. I cranked out a little study on my DS. My hope is that the students will post their work to their blogs. (Hint hint. I know some of you read this. Post 'em so the world can see 'em! :D)

Did a little tweaking in PS, got some of the lines a little tighter, that's about it. Did I mention how good it feels to be painting again? Exercises, that is. This kind of work equals calisthenics for painters. Now to make this a habit again so I get my chops back.

What are you lookin' at?

Shooting Star

Maybe something beautiful beyond words. Maybe something nobody else can see. That doesn't automatically make you crazy. Or maybe it's better to say certain kinds of crazy are good for the soul.
We're born porous to the wonders in the art of everyday life, a gift that's generally beaten out of us by the time we're adults.

Stop to appreciate the light between the leaves.

Give yourself the latitude to draw something ugly.

Write some bad poetry straight from the heart and give it to a person who matters to you.

The world will always be full of wonders but you're not a permanent resident. Enjoy what's given you and don't be afraid to be worthy of more. Maybe.....maybe there's only one shot at this game. Make it count.
