Hello my friends. Much love and blessings to you all. As always, I am very happy to have you join me again, and please don't forget to click on the advertisement to the right under the visitors map. I say this every week, because on average we get 50 new readers each week. Each time you click on it, one cent goes to the Shriner's Children Hospital.
Here is a photo of the finished "Dragon Mystress" painting. I will have a finished scan of it for you next week. The newspapers where talking about this painting before I even finished it. Here is one of the articles. I thought I was getting a lot of press before, but now that Tilly and I are working with each other, her international fame is getting me noticed in really big ways. I want to thank Jake Roberts and the "Canada News Now" for writing about me again. I appreciate the kind words and all the interest. This is the first of a series of 4 paintings based on the Dragon Mystress theme, and I promise you I will be painting Tilly Rivers for years to come.
Next up is the private commission of "Cerberus." Here is the pencil work for it. I will start painting on it later today. I will have some in progress photo's for you next week.
I haven't added a lot of details yet or wont until I start the under painting, hopefully today, but i am very sick with a bug. That is why the blog is a day late. The background will be very hellish with hellfire and all, or "Hades" fire. lol I know, I'm easily amused.
I still have 2 other paintings to be done with by the time we attend "Confusion" in January. After "Cerberus" will be a steampunk love thing featuring Madeline Frost and Darius. Both will be in attendance with me at Confusion. An interesting fact about Darius is that he was the personal bodyguard to a General while serving his country in Iraq. A very impressive young man indeed.
After that will be the 2nd Tilly painting. It will be a much darker piece than "Dragon Mystress" It is about a Dark Fairy. It is really going to dive into the dark side again. I've noticed here lately since I have amassed a huge library of audio books and that I am becoming much more interested in magical creatures. I am loving this Cerberus painting and have an ideal for a dark unicorn painting featuring Tilly also. But I am also getting into all the creatures that Lovecraft created in his stories, so look for a lot of them in the future as well.
I am really happy about acquiring all the Dragonlance audio books as well, including all 7 of the Deathgate Cycle novels which I read years ago. Life is so amazing right now. I cannot believe all the good fortune that has come to me. I got some more major news this morning, and it means I have going to have pic up the pace a little more now. Even more work, but I couldn't turn it down. It's another dream come true.
Okay, I really need to not have to think now, and just try to do motor actions, lol. I love you all, oh did I tell you I bought Madison a diamond so big that I had to buy a wheelbarrow too just to move here hand around in? lmao. Not that big, but for a starving artist type, it is a big deal to me. Peace and Blessings. "May the Darkness Comfort you"
