Aug '04 - May '05
I just finished Father Time my first painting in the Nihilistic Nostalgia series. I'll have my final review for it on Monday with Jaddo. I'm thinking of adding a tear on his right eye and a drop on the web in the middle. I'll see what Jaddo has to say about that.
My next painting is "Modern Woman" (title in the works). I bought some plastic army men and am about to start photographing them and sketching them. They will replace the small men standing on the maze holding the lights up to the face of the woman. I'm also working on penciling in the maze at the bottom and making sure the perspective comes out right. My first step in the actual painting process will be the sky. I'm working with the existing aged look of the canvas and blending in darker areas to define the thunder head in the right side of the painting. I'm a little scared about starting on these clouds. I'll probably have to do some experimenting first.
I'll spend the rest of my day working on my portfolio. I'm trying to get it finalized for our job fair on the 4th.
