This past month has been amazingly out of this world busy and it appears to be slowing down just a bit but not a lot, just refocusing the busy in different areas of life. I have lost a contract as it has come to an end and I am picking up 4 commissions, a live demo painting job and a local charity, seven chances, company has hired me to design their new logo, business cards, and a flyer for their up coming fundraiser. PLUS – I have an art piece I have to get done before this coming Friday the 7th for an up coming art show I have been invited to be apart of. Life is good – Life is good.
I must not forget that I am also preparing to write for an up coming new magazine called “Strange Beauty” and will be having some of my photography published with its’ pages. What will I be writing? Will I be actually answering questions because I be writing an advice column. I actually need to come up for a title for it, which I have yet to do. But, haven’t received a launch date yet for the first issue so I am good on time, I think.
Below is a couple of pics I have done for a couple of people just in the past few ways…comments are welcomed.
I am really proud of this one. I am still cleaning out external hard drives. So far have cleaned out 400 pictures tonight alone – over the past week I have deleted close to 1,000 pictures off one external drive and I have four of them to clean up and out.
I also am editing pictures for client and re-organizing my studio as I had a door put on my open door studio this week. So, I have been very busy making improvements, hopefully for the better.
My wife and I have Dinner guest coming this Sunday so tomorrow I will be cleaning house in between working on photos and burning CDs.
Let me know what you think of the photo to the left. I am thinking of having it printed on Metallic in large format! All sizes are up for grabs but the large format metallic print will being my studio for sale, as well placed on my etsy site.
Let me know if your interested in a print, and what size!
I have been cleaning out an old external hard drive and found a scan of a original sketch which is only on a 3.5 piece of index card, called “Beauty”.
The scan of “Beauty” has been in my old external hard drive for past few years while cleaning out the drive I ran across it and decided I would finish doing the “computer painting” of “Beauty” and create “Beauty 2” for prints.
So, I have just finished “Beauty 2” this evening 3/17/13!
Original sketch is framed and at my studio for sale $15.00 or can purchase it through Etsy. http://www.etsy.com/people/TrinityHawk?ref=si_pr
Prints are also available of Beauty 2.
