I think I'm about 2/3 the way there. I'm still less comfortable painting than I am drawing, but I think I've figured out a way to make it work; if only I weren't so slow.

progress shots

Camden and I are driving up to his dad's, a lovely cabin-style two story house with acres of pine trees in the back yard, his two dogs, his sweet stepmom, and no internet dun dun DUN.

(I typed "internut" at first.)

I'm looking forward to having a weekend retreat to just working on my school assignments and catching up on Etsy drawings. And, in the mean time, here are some progress shots of the canvas I hope to finish by Saturday afternoon:

The ochre underlayer.

The layout.

Most of the underpainting.

About halfway there. The photo is a little washed out.

Hopefully I'll be able to have the second half of the process to upload when we get back home Sunday evening.

new drawing

"Housekeeper," graphite on paper 8.5"x11".

I scanned this in just now from my sketchbook, so it needs a little cleaning up before it's ready to print.

winter displays

Busy, busy, busy, but I made myself make time to re-shoot some framed prints with a more cold-weather appropriate background. Not that you'd know it's autumn where I live - today was a balmy 77ºF and not a cloud in the sky - but I know many of my friends are enjoying their first bevy of hot drinks and warm woolens to brace themselves against the cold.

New ideas are stirring, but I'm playing a vicious game of catch-up with my schoolwork so I'll have to leave them be for now.
