***BLINK DETECTED***

That’s so funny.  I was photographing this piece today and my camera lectured me with a big hello digital warning that someone in the photo had blinked.  Aside from the impossibility, I’m a little angry with my camera…if it so damn smart then why oh why can I not take a photo without glare?  I’m blaming my camera.  My camera blames me…when will it end?

It is the end of this piece though.  I was thinking of adding a ribbon to hold that fish atop my model’s head, but no….I thought it might be a bit too distracting.  The title?  The Vanity of Technologies.   Right?

And, you thought I’d finally given up painting?  Well, it has been a while since I’ve done anything worth sharing.   This is what is on the easel at the moment, a nice piece featuring a glass of spilled wine – – spillage without breaking the glass!  It’s a miracle!  A glass saved…although, saved or not, I can’t help but wonder if that bow had anything to do with it.  It’s a work in progress – needing much more paint!  Oil on cheap canvas,

Chicanery Continued

The Christmas Card Project is drawing to a close. If you’re unfamiliar, a couple of weeks ago I got the brilliant idea of sending hand painted oil on canvas greeting cards to my friends during the holidays. I’ve completed 15 and I may try to complete three more….I might be running out of ideas for greetings that are even loosely recognizable as being Christmas greetings, but I shall press on!

 

Remember when I didn’t finish this?

I sat this piece aside for a few days, added the reflections of those eyes in the shiny black tile floor and then never photographed it!  Ha!

I just dove into my next piece and didn’t go back – – – until today.  Adaptation, it’s such a lovely piece once you get used to the idea of it!
