• BIG news,  my art is going to the dogs

    Done da dah Done Done!

    I signed all my paintings today

    I finished all my paintings yesterday! I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself now. That’s not true. I have tons to do but it is going to be very strange not to be completely obsessed with painting any more. I still have three more canvasses I could dig out if I really get desperate but I feel like the collection is complete.

    I have a collection! I can’t even believe it. I’m so happy I did this. Even if the show is a complete bomb (which I know it won’t be) I am soooo glad I forced myself to go through this exercise.

    The Baby Bug Channel

    Channel Baby Bug

    Hi! Did you want to tune into Channel Baby Bug? Hah Hah. Well, there you go.

    pink dog, deconstructed

    Flipping over to the SUMMER IS GOING TO THE DOGS channel, I finished this pink dog! It’s called, “Pink Dog, Deconstructed” but you can call her “Armadillo Dog”, everybody else is. Or “Icky Mauve Dog” for those of you who hate mauve.

    I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of painting dogs. I finished up TWO today and am in the middle of a very very cool TOP SECRET painting that I’m not going to show you on this blog BECAUSE I WANT YOU TO COME TO THE SHOW and see if for yourself. It’s really neat with a light feature! After the show, I’ll put pictures up here but not until then.

    Oh you wanted to watch the Baby Bug Channel and you are tired of that other silly dog channel? Hmmmmf. Well. Okay. We’ll compromise. It’s Baby Bug AND Dog Prints on the BABY BUG DOG CHANNEL!

    digital test prints

    Baby Bug is helping with the framing of the dog digital prints. Notice how they are in the middle of the coffee table. That’s because when I lined them up on the floor, she thought they were blocks and promptly knocked them over and then tried to stack them. So if they have a few nicks in the frames, you can blame Baby Bug.

    It’s amazing what cheap IKEA frames can do to your art. It makes crappy ink jet print outs on cheap office paper look all puurty and stuff. These are not the final prints. I’m just trying to make up my mind what I’m going to frame… When I decide, I’ll print them on really nice archival paper and have a pro do it for me.

    The show is only eight days away. I’m SOOOOOOO excited!

    p.s. letters coming later.
