Studio Sunday, New Art & Pink Envy

I've gotten so much done today. Above is a section of the finished piece called Transformation.
Next on my list - find a printer to produce it. When it's printed, I'll show you the whole thing and also have prints available.

I'm on a 'heart' kick lately if you haven't noticed. Here's part of a new sketch:

I'm actually surprised with how fast I've been able to create some of the things that I've been meaning to get around to. I think I've finally gotten past the part of me that says, "You don't have enough time to draw that". I'm able to accomplish much more when I set away a certain amount of time to get things created. When it's all said and done, 2 Sunday sessions and I'm able to crank some serious work out.

On a side note, I've always wanted a pink room...and a chandelier. So what do you do when you're not an electrician and you're renting? You paint one. I ran to Michaels and bought every shade of pink paint I could possibly find and went to work. I intend to hang it above my bed.

I draw the shapes in Illustrator, print it, then use a projector to get the image on the canvas and paint away. It's going to be part of a grouping that sort of looks like this (I use the computer alot just to plan out shapes and balance and give myself a general feel for what I'm going for):

Happy Sunday.
Off to clean up the studio.

Studio Sunday

Studio Sunday = the day I draw all day.
Today I felt a great need to get my tremendous growth in faith on paper. I drew a heart that is being radically changed through love, growth and trials.

First I sketch, then I add ink, scan the image in, and then......add color. Or not? I spent most of the day beginning to add color, but I'm torn because I really just love the way the line drawing looks.

Hmmm, maybe a version of both - one color, one line art? I know I only give you peeks of the color version. It's not finished yet!

So, which direction do you vote for? Color or just plain line art?

New Sketches, Website, Paintings and Finds

NOW THAT I've accomplished more of the 'technical' end of a website I'm designing (which I'll be sharing more about on February 9th), I've had some time to get back into sketches and new paintings:

I'm excited with where this bird sketch is going.

And this is a snippet of a new painting I started for my living/dining room.

Which will go in here above my couch:

And when I was digging around in my studio, I found the long lost old-school 35mm camera. :)
