Mermaid W.I.P.

I finally started painting after (3+) years of it sitting in the ‘drawn’ stage.

Her face so far:

I’m still trying to figure out the color of her hair (I’m leaning towards a very dark paynes gray), her top (Kinda thinking a rust color), and the color of the baby octo. (maybe a light purple?). I hate to rush these kinds of things because I know later on I’ll regret it.

An artist friend of mine posted this as his status (on FB) “Half the time it takes to create a painting is spent sitting and working on it, the other half is spent standing and staring at it.”

Ain’t it the truth, you finally get it drawn, you stare at it for a week or so trying to visualize colors, then as your working on it you stop to stare at it making sure you’re going in the right direction; once it’s done you stare at it more trying to make sure it’s really done.

I was hoping to have it done by the craft show this weekend, I dunno we’ll see what happens tomorrow. *crosses fingers*

Geneseo Music & Craft Festival

June 18 & 19 (this weekend)
Rain or shine I’ll be there… at the moment it looks more like rain, rain, rain. Should make for a muddy show. Right now since it’s going to be so icky, I’m not so sure I’ll be bringing my paintings. Might just have a bunch of prints on the the stand, but I’ll have a lot of other things; NEW Stickers, NEW OVAL Glass Pendants to name a few. =)
