Guys! Hey Guys!

So. I got into the Artists' Guild juried show!
My "Dreams in Gold" piece will be there.

I'm still kinda surprised. I mean, I like it, but that doesn't mean anyone else will...

Still, now I have to figure out where to get it printed (yes, only a print will be going), a matte for it, and a frame! Gah!

One of the things I miss the most in Savannah were the numerous print shops with large format inkjet printers. Sigh.

Okay. Off to bed. (eeii! oh my gosh!)

Mushrooms: August

I remember why I like these. I can share very easily and they go super fast.

So this is August. It's this little tiny blue mushroom in New Zealand (and strangely in India too) called "Entoloma Hochstetteri". Yeah, it's a mouth full, but it's beautiful and tiny so that's all I need to know. Plus I wanted a BLUE mushroom in my series. ^.^

I think she may be my favorite so far. It's a tie between her and June.

Mushrooms: July

The mushroom Amanita or "fly agaric" is a classic, easily recognizable mushroom. I think this one is one of two "male" mushrooms I have (the other being the partner in Feb).
When I think of July, it's the heat of summer and the bright flashes of fireflies or the explosion of fireworks. The fly agaric is bold and festive and also known for it's psychedelic poison. I think they fit together quite nicely.

Still not completely happy with it, but for now I want to move on to the next one... ^.^

Oh yes- and updated the website in case that gets buried.

New Stuff!

Yay! New stuff over at the website.
Updated the layout of artwork into sections and made a "Sketches" section, which could be interesting... Also new artwork sprinkled in there.

And just to show that I do still care, here's the Beauty and the Beast poster. I'm not sure how much I like it... I'm on good terms with it, I'm not going to work on it any more, but it just doesn't grab me the way Dreams of Gold did. Ah well, can't win them all!
