Hello! I step out of the fray once more to deliver an update to you lovely souls whom are following my art.
I finished and scanned the line work for my Wild Hunt (of Portland) painting. For the assignment, I plan on creating the painting digitally, much like the treatment on my Oberon and Titania illustrations. After school is out, I’m planning on redoing the same painting in the mannor I dealt with my alchemy series.
As you can imagine, the photo shoot I conducted to get the photo reference for this project was so much fun. I’ll be sure to post the results when this piece is finished.
In my free time (which means the hour that I’m waiting for my sleeping pills to kick in every night) I have been working on this piece:
It’s the first of what I would like to be a series of plant & animal totem series. I will continue to post them as they are created 🙂
Next order of business: Portland’s First Annual Dark Fairy and Fantasy Ball!! APRIL 21ST!! Will Valerie manage to complete all her assignments in the next few weeks AND get all of her swag ready for vending AND original paintings ready for the gallery show? Of course she will, it will just involve a lot of swearing, lack of sleep and a lack of showering. People that don’t think artists work hard are crazy.

As you can see, there are a collection of insanely talented people in this show that you must go see.
Last, I just wanted to wish everyone a happy Ostara, Easter, or whatever spring holiday you are observing this time of the year. I celebrated a late Ostara yesterday. I drove out to my favorite hide out (featured in the My Portland drawing) and ate breakfast. Check this view:
