Life is so good......

Above are some sketches for the new painting I mentioned yesterday. I thought I would show them to you like this first because since I've started working in Corel Painter, I just love working in layers! It really is the bomb. And now that I have the full version of it, you would not believe all the awesome things I can do, including making my own brushes for the program. On this new piece I might add a second skinwalker. In the story there are 2, but we'll see. Sometimes when you have to many elements in a pic like this, you can over do it. The scene will be night with a full moon, probably a little misty and in a desert setting.
I want to talk about happy things, but first i guess most of you have heard that Farrah Fawcett died this morning from her long struggle with cancer. She was and will always be remembered for her role in Charlie's Angels, but I was much more impressed with the movies I saw her in after the legendary show. "Burning Bed" was a classic and really showed the woman's talent as an actress. But like all teenage boys at the time of Charlie's Angels, I had that poster of Farrah hanging in my room. You know the one, her wearing the Red bathing suit and the "Just got out of bed" hairdo. May she find her way home and her loved ones find comfort. We''ll miss you.
There isn't a day that goes by that I am amazed at all the cool, new technology that keeps coming up. Just the Imac alone, I have about 2000 of my all time favorite songs downloaded so I can put Itunes on shuffle and rarely hear the same song twice. An this bad boy has some really awesome speakers as well. I can hear things in songs I never heard before. I can also do all my artwork here and in any medium you can imagine, and much faster than traditional means. I can have video calls to my friends, I can create music of my own. Almost anything the mind can think off, I can do here.
Ok, switching gears again. I just heard that Micheal Jackson died today as well. This is truly sad to me. I grew up listening to the Jackson 5, and have loved Micheal's music all my life, as well as Janet's. I know people say all these bad things about him, but you should never judge the art by the artist. The artist can never live up to their art, and today's news people have nothing better to do than to dig up trash on anyone that is in the spotlight, and anyone with money is a target for lawsuits. Try to remember all the wonderful music that he and his family has given us all.
I'm outta here for now, I'm just bummed out and I still have to do an article about myself for a magazine. We love you all. Peace and Blessings.
