Old Man on X

I decided to make yesterday a painting day. I started the day a bit late after some writing and recording, finding my way to The Cherry St. Coffee House when I knew some people were there (when people gather for a thing called "Stitch n' Bitch". I began to paint and talk for a small while, and then time blew by. My friends left and I painted and painted and after about six hours I decided my little 24x30 painting was finished!

I'm pretty happy with it. I decided to see how I could render hands in painting. I've never had too many problems drawing hands but in all of my paintings I've never had the chance to work hands into a tree or moon, but I did it in this character and it turned out just fine. I painted the work with acrylic. I painted this over two sessions. I began this on the second day of Mayfest in Tulsa and wrapped it up yesterday. Parts of it I flourished with metallic paint and some fine hidden bits of glow paint.

I'll be putting it up on Etsy today.

I completely messed up my finger last night. After I wrapped up my painting I hopped over to Chris Mantle's house. He's painter friend and I wanted to see what he thought about it. While I was there I played his funky old guitar. The strings cut the heck out of the quick of my nail and I didn't realize it for a while. It still hasn't quite recovered, mostly because I keep scraping the tender part across things like sharp petal of squashing it with heavy television camera gear. I'll be better though! I make sure to keep it clean mom :) I put a band-aid on it.

So, tonight. Who knows?
