I’m so excited to say that I have finished the paintings on the cornhole game for my customer. It started out with some Dallas Cowboy stickers and she requested an underwater scene with a shark and an octopus. The pic on the right is about halfway through the painting progress. I’m still adding a few coats of varnish and I need to photograph the finished product and deliver it on July 4th.
Everyone badgered me about the toothless shark until I finally painted in some teeth 😂.
New Drafting Table
I bought a drawing table that I am so happy with. Actually, my dad bought it for me as a 3 month early b-day present. I love it. It has surprisingly good quality for just $100. It was easy to assemble and doesn’t take up very much space at all. If you’re looking for a good drawing table, I highly recommend giving this one a try. And they delivered it only 2 days after I ordered it.
I also bought 2 new lenses, that I haven’t started using yet, because I was making the paintings my priority. My Nikon D3100 is apparently discontinued and I only ever bought one lens, and the two lenses I just purchased were very affordable. One is a Holga lens. I’m not so sure about it, I still need to use it, but it was really cheap so why not. The other is a 50 mm lens.
Happy Independence Day
I have a bunch of drawing and art ideas I’m going to be doing and I’ll go into more detail on everything as I’m working on them. I just wanted to provide a quick update. I haven’t done fireworks the last few years, so we got a lot and I can’t wait to pop ’em.
These packs have a good assortment so we got one of these.
Gotta’ get Black Cats . . . and some stuff he threw in for free.
I chose these two because I love muscle cars and horror.
And the finale. There’s always one that grabs my attention when I walk in, and it was Kabuki. It looked cool to me and after he described it I decided that’s the one to get. What’s your favorite fireworks? I like ’em all! 😝 Have a Happy 4th of July!
