Roosters: January 16, 2009

Two of the roosters have been done except for the foreground, or grass beneath them, which I will do once I get all three roosters completed.

Aliens and Roosters: January 13, 2009

I redid the alien for my son. He wanted it bigger and with a wider stance so I adjusted the legs for him.
I also began three 4"x6" paintings of roosters on handmade watercolor paper. I plan to mount these paintings in floatframes in which the paintings are pressed between two sheets of glass and mounted in a frame. So instead of a mat creating a space between the artwork and the frame, there will be clear glass, thus the color of the wall behind the framed painting will act as the mat. This will show off the rough edges of the handmade paper.

Aliens: January 5, 2009

These 4"x6" aliens were created by my 11-year-old son and colored by me using acrylic paint on watercolor paper.
