Fun to mix in a little more watercolor with the gouache. Basically I'm playing with the addition/subtraction stuff I've used in a few in class demos and other little paintings with bit of the dry brush on top that I've been working with since college (thank you, Rudy Gutierrez:)). I sized it to fit this great wood frame I found at a little used furniture/antique/various stuff shop about a block and a half from my house. 20$! plus 22.79$ for some plexi, and ba-boom! Teddy!

Between shuttling back and forth from Pratt for the end of semester survey and final critique, I got to spend a little quality time with my oft ignored sketchbook and some .005 microns.
|I love the 65 year old women who dress like 18 year olds in Brooklyn. |
How do they keep that denim so shiny?!?
|Puffed up pigeon under a heat lamp in Chicago.|
|Character idea for a children's book I'm messing around with.|
|One Philly park tree, one Central Park tree. The Philly one is the one|
with cheese whiz all over it.

Gallery1988/Marvel/Disney Avengers Movie release show that's open this weekend in LA. I went with the 80/90's costumes for most of them, mostly because it's what I grew up with, and I sort of miss a bit of the "camp"- Hawkeye without giant purple boots just doesn't work for me:). I haven't seen the flick yet, but I'm looking forward to it. And I can still write off all my Avengers related comic books for like, a year, right? All Marvel titles? Really? ALL COMIC BOOKS? Wow. Sweet.

My grandmother, Alice, passed away this week after a long bout with dementia. This painting is based off of a photo of her from 1950, right after the birth of my mother (sorry to date you Mom!). She was a very kind, independent, and complicated woman, and I wish I had been able to spend more time with her. She had a great laugh and she will be missed. This one's for you with love, Alice. Rest in peace.
