This is the second robot I'm currently working on (see previous post for the other one) - I'm hoping to get them done for the show in September. I still have to confirm details about that one, but I'll try to post it here soon.
Time to stop fiddling on these clouds and get to work on some smaller robot paintings. I'm hoping to get them done for a show at the Ottawa Art Gallery that I'm participating in. It's in September in conjunction with the animation festival. Also, Dave Cooper is in the show too, which is exciting. I'll blog more about it later.
Making progress, but feeling a little slow this week, which is due to spending time at night cleaning the basement, which flooded due to a heavy rain last Sunday.
That's where the cat litter comes in: we threw down 200lbs of it to soak up the water in the carpet. After hauling a pile of stuff out of there first, of course. (holy crap, where did all that stuff come from?!?! Oh yeah, that would be me.) any way, once We shoveled out the cat litter and the carpet dried out, I spent 2 evenings with the carpet cleaner trying to get it to a passable level of clean. Which is where it is now, so we can start hauling all of that stuff back in there once it dries, again.
All of which is to say, sometimes life crops up and gets in the way and you end up extra tired and your work doesn't go as well as you'd like it to. I shouldn't complain, I have it pretty good, but there it is.
Anyway, here's the painting, I've just finished some more of the clouds:
Had a bit of a crazy week, but I'm back in the studio today, and I've started on the impasto layer on this big landscape piece. Not really happy with what I did yesterday, so I'm going to paint over that bit again. It's a bit too flat maybe, so I'll try with a different colour set.
