My mom just gave me a huge canvas, already stretched. What should I paint on it? I'm trying to deviate from my normal deformed portrait painting... And since it's free canvas / stretcher bar I kinda want to just paint something FUN. :\

My mom does that when she watercolors. They're really cool, but a lot of people don't "get" them, I guess you could say. Here's some early work she did with them last year:

I have books and books of great art I've done but I lost my mojo a few years back and can't draw a thing, don't even try anymore. I will scan some for you peeps when I get a new scanner, mine is all parallel port 10 pounds of crap.

Awesome, we need more Netphorian artists around this joint. The only time I'm seemingly able to draw anything GOOD is when I'm forced to sit in front of a drawing for 18 hours, i.e., in school. At home I just can't discipline myself and I don't have enough raw technical skill to just whip out awesome drawings. Everything I draw is pretty distorted. :\

Hey, thanks for pointing that out to me; It should say 25!

Is that a "that's a lot of money" face or "that's really cheap" face? I've sold prints for $95 and paintings for $125 and up, so it really is pretty cheap.

The last commission I did was dreadful. The woman asked me to paint a portrait of her step daughter and her (the daughter's) fiance, which is fine, but she gave me the WORST fucking photograph on the entire PLANET to work from. I asked for more and they were just as bad as that one. Ugh. Good thing I got over a hundred bucks out of that woman.

I'd give you a discount commission though :)

That's lame! ***** should make it so your name can be that long... Like when Mason changed Cheo's usernames all those times. That was great.

And yeah, the essence would be totally lost :(

Hey, Kimberly, I wouldn't mind having a self-portrait of you or something (even if it's something you did in the past). But if you already have something worked out, I'm sure that would be wonderful, too.

I don't have anything solid at the moment worked out for you. I've just been working on some mock ups on paper. But now that you say so, a self-portrait it is!

Thanks Ceci. :)

I think she's great, though. I don't have any pictures of her recent work. She's really gotten a lot better.

She has 2 kids under the age of 8 and she's done a lot of abstract paintings that collage their drawings over the canvas / wood. They're really huge and equally as amazing. I wish I had pictures... I think I'm going to visit the classroom and see all my old buddies on the 1st of Sept, so maybe I'll snap some photos then.
