Family Portrait #1!

I have my second original painting called "Family Portrait #1" done in acrylics up for sale in my shop. This painting is 5"x7" 5/8" inches deep on Stretched Canvas and is varnished with UV protection.

This painting is so dang cute if I say so myself, I can't believe how adorable these creatures are when they get together for a photo op =D I have decided to turn this into a series but this series will be different. I usually create a series as where they are all the same sizes (the canvas) and sort of make them look all the same so when you put them up they look good together. However this series I want them (the canvas) to be all shapes and sizes which I think will be really neat (I hope anyways =P)

Anyways here is the cuties and more coming with the series (this series will be a never ending series)

Family Portrait #1




Of to paint the background for my next painting called "It Floats" still a working title though hehehe

It's A Bust!

That painting I have been talking about that I have been working on for serveral days. Yeah! Well that is a bust =/ My youngest cat which just turned a year old jumped up on to my art desk and sketched the surface of the wood panel =( and it is deep. I will go ahead and keep this and try to fix and just keep it for myself but dang it he was looking good.

Here is the painting and you can clearly see the damage by the eye



and here is the hellion, his name is Ashes and we call him Mr. Ashes. I love this little hellion so much even though he does try to kill me everyday but I wouldn't change it for world.



Well off to the drawing board again for a new painting idea. I will recreate him down the road but for now he is just a casualty.

Shark Week!

How the hell did I just miss shark week? Since I can remember I have always watched shark week and this year I did not see one episode (shaking my head) =/

I just have been so busy working on my creatures the days, nights, weeks and months are just flying by. Plus with Matty having his office occupying the front room right now due to us fixing up his office, I don't want to bother him. Oh well there is always next year.

I am still working on the new painting that I mentioned before that I was working on, it's coming along great. Can't wait to show everyone this one =D You can also see the progress shot of him up on my instagram page. The links are on the right hand side of the blog.

Limbo!

That is where I am at right now =/ Limbo! I am trying to figure this damn scanning issue for the past couple of weeks now and nothing is turning out right. So I am pulling out all the stops on this lol.

I read so many tutorials on how to scan in your art from taking a picture to puttind a thin layer of matte varnish on it before scanning. Also read to doing settings with the scanner to playing with layers in your photo editor for me that would be photoshop. Just so much to play around with but I am determinded to get this right.

This is also the reason why I am painting on other surfaces to see if that plays a role in it. I really need to figure this out so I can get back to painting more than just putting a creature on the canvas for no reason lol. I do love the paintings I am creating though they are so much fun =D

Speaking of painting I am working on a piece of wood that is like 3x7 don't remember the exact measurements and I am waiting for the background to finish drying. While that drys I think I am heading to hobby lobbies to pick up the varnishes I need to test this theory. Wish me luck!

New Painting!

I finally finished the new painting I have been working for a couple of days now. I call him "Silly Sour" he is a bit different than my normal creatures by having his tongue sticking out and the colors. Oh my, the colors on this creature is so awesome, this picture doesn't do it justice at all.

I will scan him in and do a proper post when he is up on my etsy shop for sale. I need to let him dry for a couple of days before I can do anything with him. I am thinking of pricing him at $30.00 + shipping and handling. If you would like him before he hits the shop just email =D kristie@bit-strange.com

Here he is "Silly Sour"



Last night Matty and I just finished watching the last couple of episodes of Happy on scfi, man that is such a good show (show for adults only) can't wait for season 2 =D We only have dozen or so of shows left to catch up on before the new seasons start. Just been so busy this past year that we didn't have time to watch them =/ NCIS, NCIS New Orleans, Crimanal Minds, Happy, Doctor Who, Law & Order SVU and some more that I can't think of.

Well off to start working on a new painting =D
