Font Showcase

I love this movie. It is actually my favorite Hugh Jackman movie. And personally, I think Karl's poor bewildered Friar Fraidypants totally makes the movie. Without his sense of fear, self preservation and surprise this would be just a bunch of great costumes, graphics and melodramatic posturing. Karl brings the reality.

Taking Care of the Art

It isn't finished but I put it in a frame anyway. As long as it is tucked away I will never finish it. And I need it safe while it is out. So here we go... framed and sitting on the little bookshelf by my bed waiting for me to figure out how to work the issues.

Part of me really likes this the way it is and doesn't want to futz with it too much. In person the pillars really glow and the tile is starting to shine a bit. The issue I have is that the face isn't complete on the fountain head so it doesn't really look like a lion to me. Also... the background doesn't recede enough for my liking. I'll figure it out.

And while I am figuring out the painting. I will figure out what kind of words I will add to it. I almost think that is half the problem. After all it was the title page for an article in a travel magazine and the blank spot is where the title went. Perhaps that will be a gouche situation. Maybe in gold or an aged bronze.

A little digital respite










Playing with some digital art since it travels well and is easy to pack up when I only have a few minutes.

Last Summer was full of adventure. This Summer is full of work.

Hiatus

I hate to do it, especially since I am finding a groove with words and photography. I gotta do it though. I can't open the hotel and keep up with the hobbies. I will be back when we are up and running and I've had a couple of days to recover from the physical challenge of doing so. We are close. We are really close.

Close only counts in horse shoes.
