Maintenance (raven ink paintings)

Just spray everything with wolf urine and put bees on a fence, for protection, so noone can take your January grayness. This is of most importance.

The what (oil painting portrait)

The purpose of this blog is entertainment only, I don’t know what I’m talking about, everything I say is fabrication and in fact, I am completely insane. (a lovely disclaimer via a random cringe-binge video)

In other news, I have been enjoying oil painting every now and then, I used Adorkastock as model because she has a bunch of great references. For example, this face of pure question:

Pink in July (ink paintings)

I guess the pink tones have creeped into the recent paintings because the whole world has been so fluffy recently. This week has been weirdly productive though! And it is caused by one thing only – the cool air arrived from Norway and it is giving us a week long break from the cute century record breaking heat wave. Trying to get as much painting time in before the next heat wave starts. I can’t believe that you southerners have to deal with this every year! I have no idea how you manage.

Enjoying the very early spring, it’s a bit hard to focus and look at things since it’s too bright from ice and new Sun. April! https://www.etsy.com/listing/1028128225
The earliest spring of all early springs – the first roadtrip gas station break, a handful of willow branches with fluffy catkins (willow chicklets!) and the upcoming cold from looking at some icy lake beauty for too long. The first days of March!

Oil portraits 2021

Do you remember the oil paint smell! It’s so good! So I took the paints out and felt like painting, I started with a couple of landscapes, and then a couple of rush portraits. You need to paint sometimes or you will forget.

My sister is sometimes making photoshoots for creative purposes, so I lent some portrait photos from her shoots for reference with her permission. It’s pretty hard to find serious portrait references.

The first portrait started out as a realistic one but then I painted over it and made it into a blue vampire.

The second portrait from this month, is another model from my sisters photoshoots.
