Octopus’s Garden

Here’s some art:

I started this piece several months ago. Somewhere along the line I went mad with power and blacked in way too much, and once I realized it, I sort of stopped liking it. I’ve been trying to use more contrast of both black vs white and texture vs space, but I think this one would have been better sticking to the texture play. Now it’s a bit too heavy, but it’s still technically worth showing I suppose, so here you are.

I could probably help the balance of this piece by putting a bit more black in the white areas of the top right quarter, but for the moment I’m sick of looking at it, so I’m calling it done.

Artsy People

This is a pretty cool idea… not sure my art style really fits with this group (its more multi-media which I like but haven’t experimented with much) but maybe it will encourage me to start doing more drawings, and, who knows, actually post to the blog occasionally. I first saw it on Norah’s Art blog (whose name is really Sharon, which confuses me).

Edit 01/26/11 *I had to delete this script because I didn’t blog much last year and this post was taking up far too much room on my front page. I hope you’ll visit some of the other artists from the comments.
