The Evolution of Man

I’m still working on this.  A friend said it looked like Rob Lowe.  I’m the only person I know who can accidentally paint Rob Lowe.  I’ll definitely be lightening the lips.

Work in Progress

I live in a small apartment, but I decided to make room for an easel.  Sure it takes up space in my living room and the cat has to walk around it to get to her food, but I always have access to it.  This is something I spontaneously started.  It is made with acrylic paint, lipstick, and eyeliner.  I found some cosmetics I had sitting in a drawer and did the math.  They were 11 years old.  I think they were **WAY** past using for what they were made for.  I will work on in more on the weekend.  I’ll post a photo of the finished product.

Coffee and Paint and Photoshop

I find painting relaxing and want to get back into it.   I have a 20×20 canvas dying to get messed up. I played around with some things I found on the internet and came up with this idea.  I like working out things with Photoshop.  I’ve been around long enough to know that the finished work will not look anything like this.

The Magic Spoon

Bruce has a special mix of unicorn milk he uses for his lattes.  It requires a special spoon to be mixed properly.

If you go to the Beaverton Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, you may recognize this spoon.  Visit the Pony Espresso to get a great cup of joe from a great guy.

I created the steam with this tutorial.  I had hair brushes that I messed with to get the unicorn milk.

Crazy Orange Kitchen

Sometimes I dwell on a little fantasy.  I was thinking of what my dream kitchen would look like and I came up with a color scheme.  Now I may change my mind tomorrow, but right now I am enamored with the color orange.  Orange, White, Yellow and Red are hot kitchen colors.  Click on the image to enlarge it.
