Ill start off. Like I said previously I haven't been painting too long, I learned about a year ago in a 4 month class than stopped up until a week ago. These are 2 paintings, I did without any aid from my teacher. Sorry for the bad photos, I need a scanner or technique for taking pictures of paintings.




They are acrylic btw.

Thank you very much. I get told that a lot about her gaze. I wish I could capture it in all my portraits.

That just means you caught something special for that one. What's the name of the piece? Was that a model or drawn from your minds eye? You have talent, your should keep painting.

Usually everyone calls her blimp, or dirigible girl. I use refrence photos and change them completely. Usually i just use it for shadowing on certain poses, because im not too familiar with lighting to where i can just do it out of my head. Every other part of it comes from my head. I wish i had models for my stuff itd make my life a lot easier, but i wont feel comfortable doing that till i have a real studio space. Not just come to my apartment so i can take naked pictures of you. Lol.

I hope other people post their work, i feel all out here alone. And dont want to post tons of my stuff all at once, ahah.

My gosh. That first one---you have her collarbone/shoulder/br east structure *perfect*. I like the shading of the veil she's peeking through in the second one, but I'm not sure if I get the concept fully... Beautiful paintings, though!

Never be tentative about showing your work!! I'm a writer and film maker, that's my art and I put it out there! You have talent, and I'm very impressed. Thank you for sharing it.
I agree with you about the models. Hahaha. I've done some nude modeling for a sculptor here in ATL and felt totally comfortable at his studio. I might have been a little less comfortable at his apartment

I LOVE The Bleeding Hearts. It makes me think of Georgia O'Keefe "Red Canna" great piece. Yours and hers

I knitted this scarf for Master's birthday. Since it's in September and he lives in England he'll definitely need it.

Lion Brand tweed stripes yarn in woodlands. Took four skeins to make a 66-inch long by 10-inch wide scarf with 10-inch fringe on both ends.

My Doctor Who scarf. It is about 14 inches wide. And 14 feet long so far and it is half done. I need to buy more yarn so it has kind of been on pause for right now.

AWESOME! I'm working on one, too. Although I'm distracting myself with other knitting projects. I started mine while married, and it reminds me of my ex-husband so I get agitated when working on it. I might start over and find better-matched yarns (the originals all have different weights and materials).

Ooh, nice. When I get around to learning to knit, it will be so I can make my own 4th Doctor scarf.

I mostly do embroidery (recently I've mostly being working on crewel projects, along with some cross stitch, needlepoint, etc.), with the occasional appliqué, weaving, or needle felting project. I haven't ever had much of an urge to learn to knit or crochet, but someday I probably will.

Never got to finish this one. Lost it somewhere. (Don't ask me how.)



Mixed media! Torn pages of a book on Borderline Personality Disorder glued down to a larger piece of paper and shaded with charcoal.



Made of 4 layers of cardboard, duct tape, and a fabric remnant. It's a cool little board I put pins in and hang jewelry on!



Cabled slouchy hat I made at work one day.



Kusudama flowers!

I love pretty and weird things together. I get all these ideas of pretty girls with weird objects, etc. I dont have enough time in the day to paint whats in my head, lol.

I love that your painting has tons of stuff hanging from the clouds, it's adorable. Your other stuff is awesome as well, I need to learn to knit hats eventually. I started off painting with mixed media stuff when I was younger. It fun ripping paper up and adding tons of stuff to it.

Ravelry has tons of patterns. The hat there is a variation on the Star Crossed Slouchy Beret. It's super easy on cable needles.

Likewise!

My best friend is about to burst. She wants me to make her little things. I think I'd go nuts if I did.
