This weekend I dug in and made some serious upgrades to the studio. First I was able to have my art bench wired with its own breaker. That means no more extension cords all over. Second, I was able to install a sound system that would let the the kids shriek without drowning me out. That’s a HUGE accomplishment in and of itself. That means in Thursday nights I don’t have to make my family feel ostracized for the sake of the show. Awesome. It’s been a lot of work and I’ve had to forgo a video for the week, but I think it’s been worth it. Besides, I may STILL get a video out by Wednesday.
I’ve been painting these little minis in an attempt to work on my detail skills and as a way to raise revenue for the studio. Â They are 2.5″x3.5″, acrylic paint on the backs of The Artistic Biker playing cards from the poker set I had made. Â I’ll be putting up videos of these along the way so you can see how a few of them are done. Â I’ve actually been painting three or so of these a week, so it shouldn’t take long to get quite a collection of them.
Every week, I ask for submissions for The Artistic Biker Live! “What’s On Your Easel” feature. Â In this case, your easel is wherever you create, whether its painting, drawing, practice, sculpting, any of the visual arts, or photographs of your culinary and performance arts. Â The submissions will go here from now on. Â If you would like to submit something, send me a photo of it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or tweet it to me @bladetheartist.
Girl2 had a soccer game Saturday morning. Â So we went for breakfast EXTRA early. Â Turns out when you’re early like that, there’s almost no waiting for service. Â Of course, that doesn’t leave much time for sketching, but we don’t starve out waiting on the food either.
Â A few weeks ago I decided to get back on the fitness track. One morning I decided to go for a run. The “bowl full of jelly” way my body shook the entire time was not pleasant. Â My whole body was not just sore, but sore to the touch. Â Apparently, I angered my fat. Â Click Here to watch the speed painting of the journal entry on The You Tube.
I also uploaded a video of me painting the Baby Elephant mini. Â I enjoy painting these so there will probably many more and many more videos of them to come. Â Click Here to watch the video over on The You Tube.
