12 paintings- Done!

Posted by eyeofthehurricane99 on January 26, 2010

Okay, so way back heeeere….

I showed you 12 paintings I was working on at once.

Well- they’re done!

Okay, if you’re smart you noticed- there’s only 9!

3 of them were for an awesome client of mine who bought a whole bunch of paintings from me for the holidays,

so I sent him and his family some little tiny paintings as a thank you gift. I know, I’m such a nice guy, right?

I like the color on all of these- I’ll be sad to give them up. I had an artist friend tell me- when I showed a piece that’s really my favorite painting ever (which was sold) how much I missed it. She said basically- never sell the ones you love. I think the opposite is true- if I don’t love it, who else will!

Anyway, enough blabbing about my personal opinions. It’s starting to sound all ‘blogg-y’ up in here. Yuk.

How about that monkey, with the little peeled bananas running all along the sides, eh? I like it!

I’m kind of on a pig kick these days- I’ve redesigned my pigs a bit, as I was running out of posing options a bit before. See, used to be them little piggies only had a profile.

No front view to speak of. Okay, they still don’t, but I’ve designed a more frontal nose and some different feet that make them a bit more fun to do stuff with. So yeah pigs.

Elephants, too. I been mad for elephants ever since I drew some silly ‘White Elephant bags’ for my girlie’s Xmas party:

Yeah, he’s stuck in the chimney. Heeyuk. She gave these away with some (not nearly as) cool gifts inside at the office party.

Oh yeah, and I painted 100 little paintings for my art show while doing all these other ones, too!

More on that next time!
