Work in Progress


I love it when other artists post photos of their work in progress yet now, as I have decided to do it since I've not posted art in days, I realize how awkward it feels... very exposed.  But I'm going to be brave.  This, so far, is pen/ink and the pen work still isn't finished, obviously.  Once I finish all the pen work, I will complete the piece in watercolor.  I'm still experimenting as to whether I prefer to paint the piece first then detail it with ink or do the pen work first.  I am swinging both ways.  I think if I paint first, I can get by with less pen work but does that make a big difference in the end?  I dunno...  I guess I just have to go with what I have time for.  Pens travel well so I can take it places with me.  I worked on this a few minutes this morning when I went to get the CT scan of my sinuses.  My appt. with the ENT is next Thursday so I'm anxious to find out what the films show.
On another note, tomorrow, 2/22 is my 22nd wedding anniversary!  Wow, that's a long time!  Over half my life!  Chuck and I don't have big plans but we are planning to go out for breakfast (my favorite time to eat out) and maybe go to a movie or something.  I asked if we could spend the school hours together as oppose to having to get a babysitter and fight the Friday night crowds so that is what we are doing.  I'm at my best early in the day and nosedive after 3:00!  Of course, since it's Friday, the afternoon is Family Fun Day so my boys expect some family fun when I get them after school.  Maybe we can do something different tomorrow instead of our usual movie rentals or games.  Have to think about that and talk to Chuck...

This is going to be a great piece when it's finished. You seem to be doing very well using ink. That's something I just can't make work for me. I'd love to see this when it's all complete. It will be really stunning, I think.

Happy Anniversary!
