Dia de los Muertos Painting!

I have a new painting to show you guys, I have been working on this painting for almost a year. A very long time in the making but she is finally done =D Yes you heard me right, there is finally a girl Unluckable well a girl in her own painting that is.

If you remember the painting Strange Madness there is a girl on the very bottom she is barely visible but still noticeable.

Anyways like I said a very long time in the making, I started her last year for Dia de los Muertos but never got around to finishing her in time. Since I am half mexican, I love this holiday I don't do any alters but still love the colors the sugar skulls everything about it and yes, I listen to Selena (my selena is the original selena not gomez, Selena Quintanilla) other than that, that's it.

I love this painting I created, I love the colorful spirit orbs love her make-up, did I mention I love everything in this painting. Its simple but beautiful! =D So here is Dia de los Muertos



You can find this print in my shop https://www.etsy.com/listing/553910362/dia-de-los-muertos-8x10-digital-art?ref=shop_home_active_1

Well off to finish that Painted Hearts that I started early this year =P

Eventful!

Yesterday I was gone all day for my Aunt's 70th Birthday Party up in Michigan. We had a wonderful time seeing all the family and we left a little early so we could go to Michael's, damn do I miss that place so much. I bought 6 little wooden coffins I want to paint on and sell. They will be a little series and only available during the Halloween time. We will see how it goes.

Then today Matt and I went to a festival by the beach suppose to be an art festival it was really disapointing only 20 vendors but we made the best of it. We found a little cute restaurant and got to eat on the deck on the lake, what a beautiful view, very cute and very good food. We will be going back a lot, of course we find it when we are leaving next year, hopefully anyways.

On the art front, it's finally time to start on that painting for the gallery, it's juried so not sure if I will make it in or not but I am gonna give it ago. Rather try than wonder, right!

So the prepping of the canvas is done, took longer than expected since we were gone all day yesterday and today but I am going to work now on. Putting on my favorite movie since it is about him anyways a little hint jack skellington more details later =D

Prepping The Canvas!

After so many years of me talking about going back to working with acrylics I am finally working with it, or going to anyways. Waiting for the first layer of gesso to dry so I can do it one more time the opposite way and then I am on my way to finally working with it again.

I stopped painting with acrylics back in early 2010 when I went to digital for my main canvas and never picked it back up. Maybe one day once I relearn how to paint again (it should be like riding a bike right? lol) I will show my old, old, old, work when I first started learning it back in 2009.

After I do my second coat of gesso to prime the canvas I think I am calling it quits. We are heading back to Michigan for my aunt's 70th birthday party. So I might not get any painting done at all today =( but Sunday is a new day =D

Tiny Stow Away!

Today Matt and I took the puppies to dunkin donuts for a treat and on our way home from there we start hearing meowing coming from outside. Well it kept following us so we decieded to stop the car and turn it off and sure enough a baby kitten was under our hood. Thank goodness it wasn't hurt it was up in the corner away from everythig moving. I was going to grab it and actually keep the baby but it ran off into the park in front of our house. Now I am going to be keeping an eye out for it so I can give it a nice home here with us. I am so worried though =/

Usually during winter I knock on the hood to make sure no anmials are under there but this little guy must of got in while we were parked at Dunkin Donuts. Sure enough though now, I will be banging on the hood everytime we get in.

On the art front I am 90% done with the sketching phase and I am in love with it. Of course now I am also coming up with tons of other ideas. I keep telling myself finish one first and then you can work on another, time limit here. I am allowed up to 4 paintings to try to get into the show so we will see how things go. Remember I am reteaching myself how to paint again with acrylics.

Guess what came in the mail today, yup my paint markers! I am so excited can't wait to use them =D

Ok enough rambling I need to get to work =D

Sketching!

Last night I couldn't find me a good light so I could work at night. Instead we just went a little bit of shopping for food and came home. We then sat down and started watching a little bit of American Ripper on the history channel and went to bed.

Still yet to go to other stores to check but now we are home from going out to eat and ready to start that sketch for that gallery show. I am not sure if I am going to show off this just yet, not until I know if I made it or not. Which we will know by September 7th, even if I don't make it in the show I will show it off and will try next year if they are still doing it =D

Wish me luck
