"Autumnal" Latex house paint, ink, acrylic, and oil pastel on canvas. 24” x 36” I started this piece months ago and then hit a wall. I’ve been trying to figure out where to go with it ever since. I knew it was missing something, but until just now I had no idea what. P.S. - Excuse the shitty quality photo, it’s really hard to get a decent photo of a canvas that big in poor light conditions.

This is the final version of my piece “Wither,” mounted on a piece of stained wood and with decorative brass nails in each corner. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

A good day for art

A customer gave me a roll of Arches watercolor paper, FOR FREE! She said she wasn’t really sure what to do with it, it was given to her, and she would rather someone who could use it have it. I will gladly make use of it. w00t!!!

Also, I partially restored an old painting that over time had faded. A little more touching up and it should look good as new. w00t x2!!!
