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!

The Drop by cogwurx
The Drop
18″x24″
Oil on Canvas
 
This piece started off rather differently. It was to be based on chair up against my kitchen wall with an apron draped over it and a light switch up near the top. I photographed it and thought it would make for a nice painterly abstract piece. I've been thinking about this piece for a few months now and finally sat down to paint it. Well I got to painting and didn't like where it was going. It just didn't look good after I painted the chair, but I got some neat textures going so I used them. I changed the color of the yellow a bit...made it more cheery and then started to added the blues.

Mystic Blue
5″x7″
Mixed Media on Clayboard
(Oil, Acrylic, and Gold leaf)

This was interesting to work on. It was reclaimed clay board of an ancient painting that I did. The only thing that kept from the original was the gold leaf in the top portion and a bit of green that is buried amongst some red and orange in the bottom portion.
