oops! I should have mentioned in my last comments that I shared the new photographs in "My Art Projects" link, and in the page Photographs of work I'm going to sell original. Under the "More" page, scroll to the bottom link. A total of 4 photographs of artwork already seen but not set up for prints. The newest art works will go up last. More to come, until I get them right. Workin hard at it.
Yep, I'm trying again with my own camera. The outside photo venture was not working. This place is too busy in the day with people out, and about, and traffic going by, and then the heat comes on early. My little tripod was always moving on me, even though I brought a stool for it out with me. It was no easier to use the tripod then using my hands. So, better lighting indoors was necessary. I am working either in my kitchen, which has the brightest lights in my place, or in my living room area with the bright morning sunshine coming through the large window. I'm not a morning person, so I have to work at getting up before the sunlight moves away from the windows. I have a good dozen artworks I need clear photographs of. I have managed to work the flash from showing on my work. Now it's just getting the photo clear, and bright for future prints. I have shared 3 or 4 of my latest photographs so far. Only one that is good enough for prints, but I'm sharing the differences in how they come out.
I'm having a real hard time with my mustangs artwork. It's large, and graphite, and not a single picture comes out the same, but for blurry. My signature is always coming out blurry, too. I will keep at it, until I am happy with every single one of them, and can offer them up in prints. I've got to get this done. I have other artwork projects to get started on. Imma gonna git thar! LOL
Have a great week!
That camera I borrowed was a joke. I found out after the fact that it had been dropped several times by my neighbors grandchildren. No wonder. The clicker didn't work at all. Waste of time there.
So, I have all this art work to share, and I'm still trying to get photographs. I just finished the latest drawing I was working on. I'm so bummed out right now, that I can't properly share it. This sucks.
I tried to get someone to help me move some furnishings to get to a window in my room for better indoor lighting. It's very heavy, and there are only very disabled people living around me. Where is a young, strong hunk when ya need one? Huh!? LOL...
There is a solution, I know there is, I just have to find it! Don't give up on me, yet.
I've been sick the whole weekend. I rarely have a problem with generic meds, but a new generic brand has worked it's way into my system, and in the most unpleasant ways, it, with everything else has worked it's way right back out. I'm sluggish, and in a little pain, but I stopped taking them, and will have them replaced very soon.
That's the latest. I just need to get those pictures!
Taking a break from art, internet, photographs for a day or so. Getting a bit of help with a better camera. Not mine, but it seems to take some better pictures. It has all these filters that go with it to make the indoor lighting of a photo look cleaner. Making some adjustments until a nice, clean photograph. Just trying to produce at least one good sample while making the camera adjustments. It's a bit intimidating to work with. So many buttons! I dunno... At this slow pace I'm always stuck in, I'll likely have the current secret drawing finished for a picture of it, too. That will be a good thing, huh? I think I have kept everyone waiting long enough, all though not intentional.
My life is stuck on slow gear. I try to speed things up, but there's this curse you see. I drop stuff, and spill things, and make a nice royal mess, while getting myself all agitated enough to want to throw something. That's when I have to stop what I'm doing, get it off my mind, and try again the next day. Life is a booger sometimes. LOL
Enjoy the holiday, my friends.
Hey art lovers,
Good news, and bad news.
Bad news, I am dealing with some major increase in pain, that concerns my disability, and arthritis in my wrists have forced me to make some choices. Surgery is in the future, but I have dental needs that must be taken care of first, and that will be in the near future. I am not on my computer very often because when I have to do a lot of typing, my wrists flare up, and I can't draw. Even drawing causes some problems, which is why I have to make choices.
Good news, I may have found help with photographs of my art works. I will know tomorrow if that will work out, or not. There will be a few sample pictures taken in the process.
I have been drawing, long hours of drawing. A color pencil drawing. It's the secret piece that I had mentioned in one of my bog posts. I'm working hard on it because I want to include it with the rest of my work that is still waiting for a photograph. I want to offer it up for sale, as the original, and save my photographs for prints. I already have my next piece in mind once my current one is complete. This current drawing is a near copy of a drawing I kept for myself, and hangs on my living room wall. It has always been popular with anyone that see's it. It's a good feeling to see people stand in front of it, and just stare at it awhile.
That's the latest.
