Summer productivity

I know I promised you paintings, but I haven't photographed them yet and in the meantime: I printed business cards! Or really they're just cards with my tumblr on them so I don't have to find something to write on when people ask if I have a website. Screen printed on light grey card stock ('cement' is the name of the color - how exciting is that) in blue, green, and split fountain why not. Want one?

Finals, part II: Portrait Painting

I didn't forget about this, I've had it sitting on my floor staring at me for the last two weeks reminding me to post about it but.. man, I'm terrible at photographing paintings. Terrible. If I could, I would show this painting to you all in person, but obviously that's not gonna happen, so here it is in the best photo I could manage.

Our final in portrait painting was a self portrait (bleh) but it was fun in the end, and it was especially interesting to see everyone's on the final day of class - lots of different compositions and styles, and a lot of great work! Here's mine:

Oil on canvas, 18 x 24"

Couldn't get the colors quite right in Photoshop - my camera always does something funny with color - but y'know, this is basically what it looks like. I tried to stay loose(r) with my brushstrokes on this one and my last couple of in-class paintings (to be posted soon) because I like the way it looks and because I have a tendency to fussy with blending, which I'd like to be able to control. I think it turned out alright!

Thanks for reading!
