Last night, I decided to take a break from one of the pencil portraits I'm doing for Christmas and lay down a rough sketch and some underpainting on a Mariano Rivera piece I want to do.
I'd love to get a canvas out and do a nice oil painting of it, but I've gotta finish this commission. With any luck there'll be another nice snowfall with some accumulation, and I can get a really nice piece out of it.
Oh well, back to the grind.
I'll still be taking some breaks in between working on them and messing around on some other stuff, so stick around for some strangeness.
So, just like Jesus, I'm spending the next 40 days and nights wandering the desert. Or my studio.
I've got a lot I need to do in the next 40 days and a lot I'd just like to do, so I'm going to spend most, if not all, of every day right here working and blogging it for you as I go.
And... Here. We. GO!
- Listening to WFAN is going to be unbearable this week after the NY Bretts win in Tennessee.
- Donovan McNabb is the most overrated quarterback of the last decade.
- Few things in the NFL right now are as entertaining as Andy Reid and his challenge flag.
- If this is what I do to my dog every Sunday imagine what my poor kids are gonna go through.
Finally, I've gone and gotten rid of my crappy GoPhone and upgraded to a BlackBerry which means I'll be able to post all sorts of live blog updates from my studio, gigs, or wherever I am.
Above is me this morning putting the finishing touches on my Eli's Escape painting. Enjoy. Talk to you soon, kids.
So, I finally moved all my junk out of my bedroom and got me a proper studio to work from; free from distraction and fully able to concentrate on my work. And, wouldn't you know it? In just a few days I've gotten more done there than I did in a month at home. Following is another update on that Eli's Escape Super Bowl painting I was working on, then a few snapshots of the new palatial digs.
