Love Never Fails

Posted 3 days ago

the corner of my Office Desk. Oil Painting. Fresco app.

This is good Artwork. I can tell because I don't like to look at the picture. Just like I don't like to see the piles and piles of paperwork that I really have to get to already. (I usually just turn my eyes from the paperwork and read the Bible instead. )

Love never fails. G-d watches over me. Like a parent looking over into the crib. Like a parent seeing everything that a toddler does. I am safe. G-d wants to distract me from my tears and fears ~ like a parent cooing to a baby in a crib ~ like a parent distracting a baby with a pretty rattle. G-d wants me to see the pretty 'crib-mobile'. To be mesmerized by it's beauty.

Desk Painting with Bible ~ Fresco

Posted 4 days ago

Oh my goodness ~ I could barely force myself away from this Painting. I'm really Enjoying a lot of this Covid-19 stuff ~ if i don't look at how much money I'm Not making while i have time to do my own Art ~ getting a chance to Paint what I'm always Loooooking at. Mindfulness

This is a corner of my desk. Unfinished. It's harder to get them started when you don't rely on photos. Harder to size and place what's going on. But the new Digital Painting apps do make it easier than when we worked directly on paper. The Move-Tool is so helpful at the Start-sketch.

Still, I did have to redesign my initial idea ~ because it was too all-encompassing. The eyes/mind wander from picture to picture when we're just looking around. So it's too many pictures in one when I start designing the Painting.

I'm painting it with the intention of building up that Office Decor Series that I started with Alison's Stapler and the Empty Glass.

Sean Connery

Posted 15 days ago

Sometimes when i draw Caricatures of Celebrities that i actually heard of, im trying to make sense out of my own life. My upbringing. the rivers of thoughts and ideas that pass from one generation to another, from one person to another, from the media into and through me. What does the image of Sean Connery mean? Does it develop healthy attitudes? Does it ruin a generation of boys and girls? What sort of impact will the current Germ-o-phobe Pandemic have on the new generation of children?

I started drawing Sean Connery Saturday night. Based on random photos from the internet. Got the most important part of his attitude. But it's late. I feel tired. I don't have to finish.

Finished it Sunday night hehe

Not for sale. I only sell pictures that I make based on things I really see. Or based on my own photos. or my clients own photos.

Follow Up: I was asked why the blue eyebrows. Here is my answer:

I did a beeline to the eyes in the photo that I was looking at. Frequently when i am drawing Caricatures, i am trying to figure out what sort of impact this stuff had had on me ~ like Sean Connery when i was growing up and his persona was supposed to represent Maleness. Yet a vague memory of his movies (i could be wrong) makes me feel..... Womanizer! (is that a word?). I imaged Blue Eyebrows sort of like 'true blue' because i felt as though he'd b trying to fool me into thinking that he can be trusted with his eyes. Blue. Sky. Peaceful. You-can-trust-me Eyes. Even though everything else is screaming Caution!Danger! He's also hiding a dangerous Explosion behind his back. And a Hypnotic 'Flower' to confuse a woman who is about to be burned by his cigarette
