Intermediate Painting Part 3

Here is the next painting.  Sorry the first two pictures are a little crappy.  I have no lighting in my house.

Intermediate Painting Part 2

This painting I just finished is probably my favorite out of all the ones I’ve done in this class so far.  It is 16×20″ and took me a total of about 6 1/2 to 7 hours to paint.

Of course there are things about it I don’t like, but overall it is pretty good I think.  I am posting the process because there actually was one.

Intermediate Painting Part 1

So I am starting on my 6th week in my new school and I have finished 4 painting, 2 of which are part of a diptych.  I have had no time for anything outside of school.  My design classes are taking over my life, we have a critique every day.  In my painting class we are supposed to finish a painting each week, but as you may know, I am a very slow painter.  I have a lot on my plate right now and tomorrow I have an Art History test covering Early Christian to French Baroque… So I thought this would be a good time to post something on here…

I usually show my process, but because each painting took me about 6 hours (3 hours each class (which is unheard-of for me)) there isn’t much to show, except for the shell painting.  That one took me longer ’cause it was hard, yo… Way more difficult than I thought.  So if that is something that interests you, you can request the process for that one, but I feel like no one really cares.  So…


This one was deconstructing candy packaging. ^


This is the diptych. ^


This one was a grid project, obviously. ^

I’m thinking maybe later, when I have a little bit of a break, I might post something about life as an art student if that is something that interests anyone.  I just thought it would be cool cause that is something I would want to read so I figure maybe I’m not the only one.  You can see a few things relating to school I’ve put on Instagram, kinda fun stuff, maybe.  I used to be crazy about Instagram, but now I barely have time for that.  The amount of time I DO NOT have will probably be included in the school post.  SPOILER!

I started these back in early 2013.  I wanted to make a bunch with different color schemes and all with similar content for a huge series, but of course I didn’t… Maybe once I start this semester’s painting class I will pick it back up.  I at least got two done, finally.  I just finished the second one after it has been hanging on my wall, unfinished, for a year.  These were my tests.  I really like how the inked one turned out.  They are 8″x8″, made with prisma color, chalk pastel and ink.

Metals Final

Our final project was stone setting.  I have to be honest, by this point I just wanted to do something easy that wasn’t going to kill me before the semester was over.  I also made it so I could remove the stone piece and just have the flowers.  Don’t mind the chain, it’s just there to show it’s a necklace.

The Woodblock

For my Printmaking final we carved a woodblock as a group and printed it at Rockin Rollin Prints at Saint Arnold Brewing Co. this past Sunday.

I went with most of my class and my professor and we volunteered all day.  It was really hot and most of us were filling in for all the people who didn’t show up, but it was really fun!  I can’t wait for next year so I can make my own block!


Hollow Beads

I’ve been kind of behind because finals are just around the corner and things have been due and I have been doing things left and right.  (So I don’t procrastinate, I am going to go ahead and post all the things that have happened while I have a second so I don’t put it off anymore.)


Just a few updates first:

1. You may have seen on my facebook page, I won an Honorable Mention for my Metal’s Poppy Necklace.

2. I got an instagram account!  I have a feed on here (this blog) if you scroll down.  But follow me if you want to see yummy food, my dog, and all the cool art things I do ’cause sometimes it is just easier to put it on there instead of getting on here.  I’m just networking out of the wazoo!


I have finished my Hollow Bead project.  We had to make two “beads” that had some relationship to each other, physical or conceptual.  I went with an aquatic theme for my necklace charms.  I hope you can tell.
