I've been working on my Slowpainting video for about 6 years.

My first acrylic painting is coming along. I'm adding details but it feels as if it is missing something. Like there's a lot of 'white space.' I want to keep it simple, so maybe I am just being hard on myself. I guess it looks overly simple at the moment.

Acrylic painting feels somewhat tedious. I am enjoying it, but maybe it is not for me. I used to do a lot of detailed pencil drawings and ink stippling. Now, my flavor seems to be watercolor and inky cartoons.

Maybe this is a natural process for me-- breaking down the complex, realistic style based on references into something created within my head?

I don't have a date or goal yet for going to an art market. I really should set one.

However, my strategy is just throwing everything at the wall. I've got a couple of ideas to paint on canvas, 2 collages done, a written piece I want to mount, stickers, and I hope to create a number of hand painted cards for sale. There's another wood craft I am thinking of doing as well.

Hey friends, I have a question. I'm planning on going to an art market with my work.

My idea is to sell mostly handmade watercolor cards. Though, I have a couple paintings and collages.

I have a name, but now I wonder if I'm building too many "brands?"

T-shirts under one name, cards under another, and my writing under my name.

Not sure what to do next. I've affixed half of the fortunes I've received in my life to this board.

More details, maybe some gold lines in between some of,the fortunes?

A finish of some kind? That seems like a good idea. I'm not sure what? Clear acrylic? I'm out of my element and experimenting, so feel free to chime in.

Used to add my words to my images for my blog. I guess the next step is to try Kdenlive to merge the words to the animations I did for

Might as well keep going with this idea of moving away from Adobe. I have six animations to do it with, so wish me luck.

Using to combine the words and images from my challenge into something I can post on my experimental art blog. I'm super excited to not be using Photoshop.

This is my goal for 2019, freeing myself from Adobe. I'm thinking I may dual boot the desktop to Linux to help me on this goal. Gotta keep windoze for the partner. :)

*breathes in and exhales slowly*

is done for me. At times the words and images radiated from me. Other times, it bled me dry. This is life. Ups and downs. Much <3 to those who encouraged me and followed the progress. Thanks.

Sleepy rant--

I should have restricted myself to using FOSS apps for . This would help me get more familiar. In university I spent an entire semester, in one class using only After Effects for the projects. That worked really well.

At the same time, creating, letting it flow, is rewarding. one day, animating another, experimenting. It's been interesting. I need to not be so hard on myself.

I feel like I'm running out of steam for You can see what I've been doing on my @pixelfed account, @sikkdays

If you're here for decentralization, you might like letter M and N. Much of the rest of the alphabet has been focused on

Now that I'm more confident in my drawing, I thought I'd play at sketching with my old Wacom. I'm not sure I'll ever be comfortable with digital sketching.

How do you all do this? You're amazing.

I had my own daily art project to start soon, but I may dip into 36daysoftype.com/

Maybe to spur some creativity, though I'm sad they've partnered with Adobe which I'm trying to cut ties with.

Added my watercolor paintings from my sketchbook to my art site, because why not. blogin.space/blog/watercolor-w
