Do you suffer from that bloated feeling when a portrait is starting to just become another typical "nice" painting? Here's a top tip, beat the living shit out of it until it resembles something more interesting, and sums up your current mood! 👺🗡"The Beast In Me" Acrylic on Boxed Wood Panel.
Crazy-style! I've been working on this painting for so many hours in a row my eyes are starting to lose track of reality. Then I look up and remember I better get some other things done before bed. Just going to work on this a little bit more first...
So many projects, so little time. Ello lovelies! I made an Instagram just for my art! Please follow for updates, works in progress, doodles, projects and final pieces on this account.

Seen here: my interpretation of, "let's paint pumpkins" (on top of easel), and boy (6)'s (in my hand). You might say we had artistic differences. Thank goodness for the lessons of the last few years, in which I learned to stop saying, "no." And so it is. Yes, go ahead and paint the pumpkin with acrylic paint. Tell me how you could suspend one from the ceiling. And when your brother remarks that the one I'm painting pink looks like a doughnut, I reach for the sprinkles and the Mod Podge... As I type, my boy (6) is painting with acrylics, over some address labels that he's cut up and stuck at odd angles onto the canvas. The canvas was painted white with red and yellow blocks, before being smudged with a cloth. The painted labels get a layer of Mod Podge next. I have no idea where he gets his method but it's a treat to watch. Besides, I am seated, drinking tea, saying nothing. My favourite approach to teaching art. #art#teaching#silence#homeschooling#painting#mixedmedia#acrylics#modpodge#canvas#newwork#justleavethemalone
