Test post. Please ignore.
I have come to the realization of what I want to focus my blog on. I have a few unrequited desires that I want to fulfill, that for whatever reason hasn’t played out the way i had planned. A few weeks ago, my attempt to return to teaching was thwarted by a paperwork snafu by HR. That said, I’m going to treat it as a blessing in disguise. Earlier this summer, I had met a girl who had been accepted into a graphic design program and my conversation with her was invigorating. I stopped just shy of offering her help as mentor, because I hadn’t thought out all the logistics and commitment to doing that. In any case she was an ideal student in that she was young and had a stronger portfolio than some of my students who had already graduated. I know a few people who i would like to mentor, but I really am on the fence about putting forth the effort a commitment like that would require. However, having been at death’s door last year, I also don’t want to go to my grave with what’s in my head all locked up without passing it on. My son has been bugging me to teach him to paint, but I can’t even get him to clean up his room. So I think I should start an art blog. Hopefully, by time he matures enough to actually digest the content, it will be there waiting for him. And if it benefits other artists along the way, all the better. There’s no point in waiting for the student to be ready. I’d best start now. Part of the inspiration for this is the movie “My Life” starring Michael Keaton.
I have been a big fan of the Karate Kid as long as I can remember first seeing it in the theater. Ever since then I have longed to find a mentor of the caliber of Mr. Miyagi. Sadly, such a thing doesn’t exist. No one is ever going to fit your idea of the perfect mentor. You will have people who drift in and out of your life, dropping nuggets of wisdom along the way. You might even be that person dropping wisdom nuggets for someone else without realizing it. So your best bet is to being open to new ideas and new experiences.
I painted this a few years back in an older version of openCanvas.
So I’ve added some new videos to YouTube. I hope they’re helpful to some of you.
It’s pretty easy to do this. You have one window open with the reference and then you paint in the other window.
You can use the eyedropper tool to pick colors and the the rest is simply shapes and drawing skill.
So it’s the end of June and I’m in a rehab hospital trying to regain the use of my legs. I also have lupus which is affecting my hands.
I can track how I got here step by step. But that’s the past and I need to concentrate on the future.
For example Facebook has taken off since my last post. My plan is to sell some prints and offset at least some of these medical bills.
the hard part is that I’m still in the hospital.
