It’s my first blog post of the year! Yeah, I know. I’m a bit late to be saying this, as we’re already 30 days into the new year. But it’s true; it is my first post of the year. And for this first post, I have a pretty decent postcard to share with you all. Check it out.
I call this Along Side The Road. This came about on one of the days I was at home, recovering from a recent injury. I was sitting on my couch and looking out my patio window and I see two trees. They’re sitting on some patches of grass in the middle of our building’s parking lot and they looked sort of interesting. The trees here didn’t come out to be exact copies of what I saw, but for this painting, they’re good enough.
The rest of the painting came from my own imagination. I kept building upon each element; adding in new details to try and make it more interesting, hence the telephone poles and the double yellow line, creating a more 3 dimensional space. I don’t know why, but somehow, adding these minor details makes it work. Quiz time: what season do you think this postcard represents?
So overall, not bad. Not my best work, but it gave me something to do for about an hour. Better than being bored, right?
I’ll see what I can come up with next!
In the meantime, check out my friend, Salazar’s blog over on 14 Shades of Grey. She has some pretty awesome artwork! I particularly like her beach in Batam, Indonesia. 🙂
