I Know I Know they are bad. But they are meant to be exercises. I am willing to show you bad art. This is what keeps me warmed up. Right!
The top is someone that I admire. That love or hate her, you have to admit that she changed this world for the good.
The other is just an idea for a Wizard of Oz painting. I have to add the Lion. He may just be by himself because he is special. I have a thing for lions because I am a Leo you know!
Also I wanted to discussed unfinished art!! I have so many paintings started and never finished. I am working on one today that I started last Valentine's for my husband. But I never finished. (I will show you sometime this week) I always have 10 paintings going on at a time. So these are some that I am going to work on. The above I am going to add a bird and other good stuff. The one below I don't know what I am going to do yet. It may be totally different then what I started it out as.
Other news Steve is removing the wall paper from the hall way in the upstairs. Steve is a contractor. It comes in pretty handy. But did you ever hear the saying "The shoemakers kids never have any shoes" (or something like that) Last thing he wants to do when he comes home. What a pain! But it has to be done. Underneath it was a name and date of the person that put the wall paper up in 1961. Pretty cool.
Richard Ritter 1961
I think that is pretty cool. He wanted someone to know he was there. That he existed.
