I started a new painting today. I was working on my still life for Illustration 1, but... that painting is soooooo boring. Not only is it a still life, but we have to do the stupid thing in black and white. And I'm sure everyone reading this blog knows how I feel about black and white.
Even though I don't like it much, I'll let you see what it looks like. As well as a camera phone will let me, that is.
The assignment was to do a still life about either child abuse or the commercialization of Christmas. I did Christmas (if you can't tell.) Its a manger, but instead of the baby Jesus, it's holding candy and presents. The animal at the manger scene is... a piggy bank.
The painting I started today... well, I was looking though our Mexico pictures and... I liked this one. So I did a painting of it.
An inch or two from the top and like 1/4 inch from the bottom aren't in the photo. But here it is. Dunno when I'll finish it, but I really should do real homework now.
