I have not been up to much lately. I finished the plexiglass. However I will have to sell it. I had my client come by because she was having a few changes made. Unfortunately she didn't care for quite a few of the fonts. After lots of research and a small trial nothing that can remove the acrylic without compromising the plexiglass. I really don't want to start over its tedious and I do not feel inspired or creative. However I want her to be satisfied. But I will most likely do things very different if there ever is a next time.
Last weekend I painted live at Lumen8Anacostia here in Washington DC. I sold one piece. But I still have the other available for sale. It had been about a year since I painted live. Not to mention having a creative block for two and a half months. So I was surprised at myself at how well I did.
Also I have been doing some drawings for perhaps future paintings. The ideas have been flowing every since my rut ended. THANKS LIVE PAINTINGS!
I also have been working on a small oil painting of an eye. It will be a start of a series of fantasy make up eyes.

Plexiglass

I have been working on a commission for a salon for a friend of mines. She wanted some inspirational words artistically written on her wall some how. However after our consultation and my quote, she really wanted something  she could take with her since it was an investment. That is if she decides to ever relocate. After much thought I knew she would love the idea of plexi glass but I did bring some other samples. But I like thought she loved the plexiglass.

So after securing a deposit I went to Lowest and purchased fancy hardware to anchor it and 7ft plexiglass and 34inches wide. I had to ask a friend to bring it home for me. So far it has been a challenge because of the turbo around time I had no real time research how I could make the process as easy as quick as possible. So I traced the words printed out in different fonts on one side and did the pain staken process of hand painting the other side. TEDIOUS needlless to say. But turning out very nice.
I will update the finished look once its installed.
