Today, I'm taking a little break from business-business in my studio. I've been working on my Queen of Hearts, but I haven't been able to get back into it since Friday. Still, I finished her hair and crowned her:
|She has strong iridescent highlights on her hair and eyes, so when the light is directly on her she becomes very scary looking.|
Over the weekend I went running outside and got some fabulous shots of the ice and a short video of the water running behind it at the dam:
|Those are frozen water streams from the dam. Isn't that wild?|
|Icicle steps, how cool is that?|
|Shot of the icicle steps farther out, the video is of this area where the water was pounding through behind the ice.|
But then yesterday I spent all day on the computer side of things and I feel like I lost my mojo. So, today I'm taking it off from the "have to" and working on just Valentine's Day stuff. I have one mouse and hart candies sketched out, but some folks have suggested I do other animals too. So, I'm working with a bunny or two, and I'm contemplating a giraffe. I have no idea why, as giraffes aren't exactly your standard Valentine's fare, but we'll see what happens. I'm taking a workation kind of painting day!
So, here's hoping for snow and cute paintings!
