Lost in a Moment

Painting is fun to do, fun to do, fun to do. Painting is fun to do, to do, to do, to do.

Brenden 2

This is the second painting I did of Brenden, my brother's friend. He asked me to do another one so he could use the two images for his album art (Brenden's an artist AND a musician). I was flattered and obliged. This one took me a bit longer than usual. I drew inspiration from Atoms for Peace, Passion Pit, The National (I have tickets to their show, by the way!), Nikki and the Dove and De/vision.

Flowers in Her Hair

This is the second painting I've done of Raquel. I think she has an interesting and beautiful face. I thought I'd try something new this time--I start with an abstract (splashes of random colors) background, then I drew the figure on top, then painted it. Another new experiment--using paper doilies as stencils. I used other stencils, too, of course. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. Painting is so much fun!
