So quiet here in Canyon this holiday with everybody mostly gone. Art and I played the Plough happy hour gig, then back for a nonexistent party.
I have been using two or three different brushes constantly this year, particularly a 1″ flat Princeton and a #4 round Raphael travel brush, with Winsor Newton, Sennelier and Pelikan watercolors.
Lettering and random brush strokes is a thing right now. Yes, two things can be a thing. A stained chair cover spontaneously updated with sume-i ink straight and diluted, and a first iteration of the “$1,000, FINE FOR LETTERING” sign are examples.
I went haywire with some house paint and the 1″ flat in the roofing house, painting a plywood wall panel and putting together a small matching panel and another newsprint-collage-on-tiny-stretched-canvas piece. Deeply meaningful transformative story of discovery I will not subject you to, about family and creativity and home and how I became an artist at a young age. I took some shots with my iPad of the interior and small paintings, I will post them later.
