Let me tell sucks...the wall takes forever to dry and doesnt want to cooperate with anything but i am making it work. so let me show ya what have been doin with it instead of just talkin about it.

voodoo puppet

This is just a new piece I did just before the Student Art show. I orginally started off with the arm on the left and thought to leave it at that. but you always know once you start you just wanna keep going, so i did a 2nd arm. The piece didnt look right though so i decided to add the body. Once i added that however i thought it would be awesome to hinge it all together and see how that looked. The judge for the Student Art show liked my piece and thought it would be great idea to hinge it as well. I almost didn't get to put into the show i was out buying the hinges to put on the piece and didnt make it back in time to enter it in the show. But thanks to my friends jess and amanda, they entered it for me and it made it in! so finally its all together and in the show and I almost won the student choice award again this semester but lost to a pretty sweet sculpture so it wasnt a bad loss. The bad part is the piece doesnt have a name, so if anyone has any suggestions im more than happy to hear them out.

Project- Train Room Day 2

So this was actually done on wednesday the 28th, it really sucks not having a computer sometimes just cause i want to keep up to date, but hey what can you do? I started work on the far side where i would have to get up onto the train set itself and start painting, but also so it would look like i had gotten something accomplished. The first area I painted on was sheet rock so it held pretty well, but took a bit of time drying; not as much as the concrete did mind you. it took about 6 hours to complete this section, im not sure if it's done quite yet though. I wouldnt mind someone's opinion on it though, just so i can make it better. but so far in 2 days i have finished a 1/4th of the work so im on a roll!
