After completing "Joie de Vivre" I am trying to think what I want to do next artistically and haven't come up with one idea I really want to pursue yet.
However I have been getting quite a bit of inspiration.
Joelcy Kay from Edge of Humanity Magazine contacted me by email saying she was interested in featuring 10 of my Woodies in the magazine. I sent her the ones she was interested in and she said they would be published in the next 60 days, so stay tuned and I will post a link when it happens.
As I was browsing the magazine I loved the work of Kevin Grass.
He has a style I am very much interested in pursuing with my painting. Check out his site, he does beautiful work. There are many other artists and photographers featured in the magazine and I plan on checking them out as well.
Since I can't seem to sit still when I'm not working on a painting, I created a couple new Woodies. Digital art is so convenient to work on and I have all the parts for woodies ready on the computer since I shoot trees and people whenever I have the chance. I am also amazed at how different the same wood source picture can inspire me on different days.
This is Woody 221 and the source wood image was captured in Fernley, NV a while back. It has my cat Noels' nose, my eyes and some car parts I photographed at Pick and Pull for brains.
This is Woody 222 and has a definite "Wood Wizard" look to it. The wood source image was also captured the same day in Fernley, NV. Maybe it belongs in the Wood Spirits section instead.
