Solstice 2014: Spirit of Winter Wall Hanging

Wall Hanging (5"x 7", I think? Forgot to measure)
I made this as a Solstice present for my girlfriend. The main picture was painted with gouache (with glitter accents that don't show up in the photo), while the frame is patterned paper overlaid with shimmer-watercolor and a snowy-chunk nail polish. The shaker fill is iridescent confetti, silver sequins, silver snowflakes, glitter, and tiny faux pearls. Then the outside is, of course, ALL THE THINGS. (And yes, she loved it. Hurray!)

Solstice 2014: Mom's pots

So, I painted these for my mother because... well, she asked me to paint some pots for her and wasn't very specific. Total success though!

Holy crap.

I posted a link to my first ever post (that watercolor mermaid I doodled while the plumber was over) on one of the Bloggess's (BOW DOWN AND WORSHIP, YE MORTALS) comment sections and it bounced from 13 views (half of them probably mine) to 71*.


If you'll excuse me, I need to go plotz at the thought of having WILLINGLY AND ACTIVELY drawn attention to myself. Then go get more ink from Jenn The Marvelous, so at least I can stab the nerves away.

EDIT: It is the next day. I have indeed gotten more ink (yay!) and the view count has crept up to 187. Eeeshk.

EDITTY EDIT: It seems to have finally stopped at 253. I might finally unclench.

*After roughly an hour and a half. FUCK FUCKETTY FUCK. Do I want that number to go higher? Do I want to hide like mad? Yes and yes.

Art Journal Extract: Adventurous Elves

I will be coloring these in, but for now I'm enjoying the black and white versions.

Both are 7" x 10" ink on paper.

Vlogtober #29: Mailbox

We're slowly painting our house, and I went ahead and did an Alisa Burke-inspired doodle on the mailbox. The original brass color can be seen when the lid is up; I may end up painting the inside a nice green to match the green glass in the front door that's next to it.

Don't get too excited, but not only did I craft one fine mothafucka of a tripod (video below) but I have been filming an actual giant painting project which hopefully will be finished and up on here within a week or so. THERE IS STUFF AND I HAVE BEEN DOING IT YAY

Yeah, it's a little wonky in places. But I did it in a morning, so bllllpth.

Acrylic, 12 x 14 (estimated)

I'll be up posting stuff again soon. Things here have been...stupid. Rough and stupid. I'm on the last portion of my Masters classes, we had three of our cats die in the span of a couple of weeks (one from old age, two that had to be put down when they tested positive for FIV), and one hell of a mental health rollercoaster. Think of this break from posts as one of those insanely annoying mid-season hiatus breaks that your favorite TV shows go on, except that this blog is none of those things...perhaps that was a stupid analogy. As Helbig would say, I don't know.
