Up to Something

"To Sea" Arylic on Canvas
I haven't been very active about posting lately and it's my plan to change that...Hopefully I will be able to get the illustration of the week back on schedule, and I would like to send updates on what I'm doing in class and the dreaded Notre Dame de Paris project.
Today I finised a painting that I've been working on for years. Seriously. Not everyday, of course, but years. A bunch of them. This was for G:
"Glockenspiel" Acrylic, etc. on Canvas

Amazingly, after the bunches of years of dissatisfaction, I'm ready to be done with it and I feel as though it is ready to be done. Some day there may be a real clock in the clock face, but not yet. Because of that, I thought I would post the other two paintings I've finished in the last couple weeks. "To Sea" I started Monday and managed to bring to completion yesterday. And below is Cathy Jo's birthday present:

"Turtle Bird" Acrylic on Canvas

This was based on an excellent picture G took snorkling in Hawaii.

Pats self on back.

"1st Year Flying" Acrylic on Canvas-ish
I've kind of wanted to start illustrating Harry Potter, so I decided that now was as good a time as any. So here's my first one, poor Neville on his out-of-control broom. I had some problems with it at first, and then I realized that I just needed to make it looser and stop fussing with the details.

Well, they asked for it. Done mainly in Illustrator with a wee bit of Gimp.
