I feel like I've been flailing about looking for ideas lately. After a number of uninspired projects that went nowhere I decided to dig in my heels and finish something, anything. The first project I completed was a digital panting of Judith and Holofernes based on the biblical story but more especially based on my favorite Caravaggio painting.
Once I had finished that digital painting I was going to finish something in a traditional medium. Here's Leonore, my second accomplishment during this (probably brief) fertile period. She's oil and acrylic on a 12" x 6" wood panel.
Now it's back to work.

I've been having a lot of fun recently playing with my watercolor pencils and ink. My scanner is a bit too sensitive for my taste (accentuates every pencil stroke) but a quick color touch-up in Photoshop seems to smooth everything out nicely.
I'm also trying to offer ACEOs for all of my drawings and paintings. I'm way behind the times but I think they're an adorable way to start collecting art affordably. I wish I had known about them when I was a teenager.
