Electric Chair

     Finally, a new image to post... sorry about the wait. 
This was an interesting project, because we basically got a very rough drawing that someone else did and had to redo it in our own style, and finalize it. All mine was a business man in an electric chair.  I'm partial to this painting because it took a lot of setting up and planing to get it right.  And in the end, I'm not sure how to feel about it.  there are things I wish I could fix, but I guess its at it's point in the "pyramid of doneness".  This was done in watercolor, goauche, and concentrated watercolor, which I love and hate.

Heart Chicago Motel

My most recent watercolor project was to paint a sign, and I chose the Heart Chicago Motel sign which I thought was near my house, but I was wrong. It's a nice sign, but the motel looks sleazy.  Anyways.. can't write much because I barely get any time to do anything online.  I have no internet at home (insanely slow dial-up isn't real internet) and that severely what I can do online... not to mention networking.  Anyways... I want to start commissions soon to get some money for school.  More information later....
