Here’s a silly digital piece I’ve been working on. This is a close-up of it. I’ll reveal the rest of it over the next few weeks, tantalizing you, to see if you can figure out what cupid’s love interest is. Here’s part of the original black and white pencil sketch…

And the color…

I love doing digital paintings too. It’s a lot different than painting with real paint…and yet…not as different as you would think. The only down side is the lack of a finished product to hold when you’re done. And that’s part of the reason why returning to oils has appealed to me again.

Off we go to Spectrum Live this week in Kansas City, MO. It’s going to be quite a spectacle – so much imagination in one place! My eyeballs will surely overload! MS has a booth and I am along for the ride (literally even, since we are driving!) Looking forward to seeing familiar faces and getting to know some new ones. If anyone can recommend any restaurants, let me know! I have no idea what Kansas City is like. I was talking about it at lunch today and I said: “You know how, when a particular place comes up in conversation, some sort of image comes to mind? Well, all I see is a line.” I have absolutely zero knowledge of Missouri in general. But after this show, I shall have an image in my head to file away that will pop up if someone mentions it. ;)

That’s all for now. See you next week!
