You can’t go wrong on a hot summer day with a banana Popsicle. Yum!
Thanks to those that like, comment or reblog any of my artwork. I don’t get that a lot, so I appreciate it when it happens. :)
I’m enjoying reading all of the tumblr posts freaking out about some of the Game of Thrones episodes. Oh boy they sure are in for some surpises! But, it’s good to see the excitment about this series.
I’m re-reading the books right now, partly because of the tv series, but mainly because of the fact that the 5th book comes out in July! So far, I think they are doing a great job with this tv adaptation. I only wish the wolves had a bigger presence, but maybe that will come in time. And of course, Tyrion is stealing the show. I can’t take my eyes off the tv when he’s on the screen. He is doing an amazing job. The scene of his confession to Lysa was hilarious. But, as good as the series is so far, I am far more excited for the 5th book. Finally we get a little more of this tale.
I accidentally stepped on a wolf spider barefooted. *shivers* At first I just thought I stepped on a cat toy, but then I looked and saw the spider and nearly died. So much for trying to get over my little fear of spiders. Now I can’t get how it felt out of my head. And, those bad boys aren’t pretty. They are big and nasty, and from what I’ve heard can leave a painful bite.
I need to take some time with my art to get out of my comfort zones. Ah, I hate doing that. I like feeling comfortable. but, I need to step outside the box for a while to learn. That way I can step back into my box and make it prettier. Am I even making sense? In other words, I don’t want to change what I do. I just want to develop it more, but I’m not sure I’m going to be able to do that unless I really push myself past those boundries I make.
And, what’s the big deal anyway? It’s just art. It’s not like someone will die if I screw something up. Art is one of those things where it is definitely okay and beneficial to experiment, but I sometimes get so caught up in wanting sometihng to look good that I fail to take any steps forward.
I cleaned up my last painting a little bit, http://themeds.tumblr.com/post/5561921567/not-much-to-say-about-this-picture-i-was-just
Not a whole lot of course, because I kind of like the messy and loose look. However, there is a fine line between a messy/loose style that looks awesome and a messy/loose style that looks like crap. I kind of linger around that line a bit, and I’m not sure I’ve learned how to do it right yet, but I will. I admire artists that can.
Thanks so much! You are very kind.
I’m not sure if this is just showing my age, or if I’m just in one of those moods, but I am really tired of what the entertainment world has to offer. Almost all of what’s popular right now in music, art, tv, movies, games, etc I find boring, empty, and skilless. Our culture is about money and fame, and somehow what’s real has been cut out. I could go outside in my backyard with my barefeet touching the grass and the warm sun on my skin, and I’d get more out of life just sitting there taking it all in than I would if I tried to take in the meaningless junk our world has to offer.
So what does this say about my own art? I have no idea. I guess I’ve been sucked in as much as everyone else.
