New Paintings, New Programs

I recently finished two new oil paintings and finally photographed them to my satisfaction earlier today. Both works are 11" x 14".

"Star Eyes" 2009

"Dysfunctional Family Theatre" 2009

These pieces had been in the works for a while, and both were begun without a plan so each composition developed over time. Personally, I think it's very liberating for me to work that way; it's quite a big contrast from working with grids, trying to recreate a specific likeness or preliminary drawing.

Recently, I've also begun playing with Blender in earnest. If you on a tight budget and are curious about exploring the world of 3D graphics, Blender is the way to go since it is an open source, freeware program. I'm still learning how to navigate and how to think like Blender, with the aid of Blender for Dummies. As soon as I make any cool images with it, I'll share them here.
