Paints, ATCs and inks

I've been busy making art and working on various projects so I haven't been a good poster lately. Plus,. to be honest, it's always a struggle to write something to accompany the pictures. I'm more of a "here's my painting" type than a blog writer. So boring I know.

I'll set some new year art and posting goals and try to stick to them for 2015. I know that 30 Paintings in 30 Days is happening in January 2015 and I might join in there though I'm more of a markers and ink type than a painter. Painting takes me such a long time. Holy slog fest.

I started a painting this afternoon! Woo!  It's just acrylic right now but it will end up being a mixed media piece. It's pretty big. I think this is the largest size I've ever painted at 30 x 40". I tend to stick to my comfort zone of 9 x 12 " MAX. There's so much more surface and I'm going through a lot more paint than I'm used to. I can see myself making a trip to the art store for some big tubes. Anyway, hope to finish this one up over the next couple of days... before the chaos of visitors and holidays.

Below are a few of sets of ATCs I made for some art friends over the past few weeks. Mostly markers and ink - smokers, lovers and fancy animals.

Happy PPF! :)
