Jellyfish

I’m catching my breath and getting some work done.

Jellyfish are lucky, by the way.

SHIPWRECK LAKE

Not far from the lonely swamp is shipwreck lake. It’s not uncommon for naive sailors to dock at this small town to enjoy its legendary hospitality (beer), only to loose their ship and sometimes crew during the night. No one is really sure why the ships go down…

Adrift

For Illustration Friday, adrift (India ink applied on acrylic paint with nib pen).

And here with a dime for scale:

We’ve been adrift like jellyfish in ice water. Baltimore has had two blizzards in one week – something that’s never happened before.

I am not teaching any  classes at the community college this term, nor are any of my graduate school classes running. I’m using the time to paint more – including oil painting. So far, acrylics have been my favorite because they dry quickly. They can be mixed with water to resemble watercolor, but don’t run once dry. I’m interested to do some things with oils.

Stay warm. Can’t wait for spring.

A Shaky Situation

Larry is on shaky ground
I drew this a year ago.  By coincidence, I  just finished it last night. This is 24″ by 8″ and when I originally posted it, I colored it in Photoshop.

I’m happy to say that I think  the original  looks BETTER than the digital version – I ended up cutting the giant jellyfish out with an exact-o and mounting it mat board. This now lives with my friends Julie and Dave.

See below.
