# 279: Rocker Boots

6" x 6" oil on canvas

Painting shoes is a lot of fun...those these were quite difficult with the folds and all. Shoes are very personal and I have an ambition to paint the shoes of all all of my friends and family! These boots belong to my cousins fiancée and he used to where them to rock concerts.

# 278: Remedies

6" x 6" oil on canvas

Well it is flu season and pig is looking for a remedy. I need a remedy as well. not for the flu..been there / done that. My painting has been getting too tight. I think that I am feeling the pressure of putting up a show in a couple of weeks and so I "have to" paint some "good"  stuff.

# 272: Blue Blur

6" x 6" oil on canvas

it's been a long time since my last post and more than a week before I completed my last painting. life has been a bit nuts. I started a new teaching job and I am applying to graduate school. Writing those essays is chore! All I could think of is how I would rather be painting. 
I decided to continue with he bulbs for a bit longer, since I am trying to get enough together for a series.

# 271: Fire and Ice

6" x 6" oil on canvas

light bulbs are interesting to paint, because of their transparency and sheen. The is not much in the way of value shifts and so defining the form is a bit tricky.

# 270: Earth and Sky

6" x 6" oil on canvas

I think that I like this even though it got a bit overworked in the end. The white bulb is a bit out of balance, but that might not be a bad thing because it's instability counters the heavier green bulb.
