Time to change up the journal

Mon Jun 15, 2015, 8:26 AM
So it's been awhile since I've updated this journal and I've been meaning to do so since I rebranded Cogwurx a while ago; lots going on so I couldn't devote any time to any journals.

So..um...what's new. I have an 8 month old who is now crawling, so that's taken up most of might time, but I'm fortunate enough to be able to squeeze some paintings in. I'm so glad I switched to the water-mixable oils. Takes a lot of the worry out of painting around kids, though still need to be mindful of them.

I have an art show coming up at a local library. Nothing major, but it will allow me to sell my originals and clean out some space from a closet I dubbed "art storage". That also means that I'll be getting my latest batch of paintings (about 19 of them) professionally photographed so I'll be able to offer some new prints! YAY!

Mixed media on board
(Oil, Acrylic, paper, tea bags)

Wow! did this go through several iterations. This is a painting that I started back in May and was going to be a collage sort of thing. I knew an elephant was going to be the main theme.  I thought I had finished it mid-May, but something about it didn't seem right. I stared at the painting for a couple days and I  got to the point where I really hated the painting. So I put it away for about a month or two and revisited it last week determined to finish it. The fact that this painting wasn't complete and I knew that there was one in there bothered me so I just let loose on it. This is the result. I don't think it's my best painting, but I did some new things with it that I'll apply to other paintings.

Mixed Media on Canvas
(Oil and Acrylic paint)

I wish I had a camera that took better pictures. Anyway, this one was a pretty interesting piece that sort of came to me rather quickly. I had one last, large canvas that I wanted to painting so have been thinking for quite sometime as to what to painting on it. Then one day I had a sketching app open on my phone and doodled something really quick that really clicked with me. So refined it in Photoshop a bit to get the general concept of what I wanted to achieve and then set to work painting it. This is one of my more quicker paintings that I've done.

Trying something a little different with composition and I just felt like painting these flowers again.
