Happy New Year 2010!

I just want to wish Happy New Year to anyone who reads my blog. I hope 2010 bring you health, happiness, and prosperity.
Thank you for all your nice comments throughout this year. You all motivated me to be a better artist *grin*
I'm not on hiatus...just a bit slow with everything. I can't wait to update something new soon. I guess it'll be for 2010.
Stay safe peeps and have a great NYE party.

Painting in Progress and My Creative Process

Hello Hello....
I hope you guys stay warm in this cold cold world. It's been in the highest of 30ish F lately. PJ pants and long sleeves shirt are pretty much my uniform lately:)
Anyway, my latest painting is slowly emerging. I think I may be able to finish it next week, and of course I'll post it the final result.
I have found an idea for my next painting. When I got an idea in my head, I would immediately sketch it on my moleskine. It'll be my preliminary sketch of what I want to include on my canvas. Then I'll sketch it on a bigger paper. On this stage, I'll work on a specific expression of the girl....I give her a personality:) I will then transfer it on a canvas. You know the rest...underpainting and layers of oil paints.

Here is my progress from my latest painting

Latest sketch

Well, now I'm hungry. I'll make flatbread topped with baby bella in tomato cream cheese sauce plus mozarella cheese. Have a wonderful weekend!

I'll be Your Best Friend painting and twitter

I just realized that I haven't posted my latest finished painting. So there it is, and I promise I'll post picture or at least progress shots of my current painting. It'll be a bit slower, though. This weather has made each layer dries longer. I'm hoping to finish it before Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, how is your Christmas preparation? Are you done with Christmas gifts shopping? I'm glad I'm done:) Everything is wrapped and ready to be shipped out.

Anyway, I'm wondering what you think of twitter. I joined because one of my good friends was there, then I found lots of artists also had twitter. I'm doing it because everybody is doing it, but I'm not a huge fan of it. The newsfeeds keeps coming really fast so that sometimes you wind up ignoring somebody's response. I don't like that part.

See you soon!
