Thing-A-Week #5

Starbucks Poem watercolor.
I was actually at home this Monday and had access to my portfolio and was flipping through it to figure out which painting I’d like to feature this week and found my Eye of Jupiter/Starbuck’s poem watercolor that I made a while ago. I put a lot of effort into making the Eye of Jupiter and capturing a rusty feel with the background, and I still really like how it turned out.
So, for this week, it’s $10. 😀

Eye of Jupiter Watercolor

You know that Moment

When you make something and you love it and are proud of it and aren’t really sure you want to sell it?
 
That.
 
Today.
The TARDIS.
I bought two 7×14 canvases the other day so I could use my acrylics again, and this was the first thing I decided to do.
 
And also, yesterday, I was interviewed on Home Life Simple and featured on Harvesting a Legacy!

It's Friday

Now that I have Rebecca Black stuck in everyone’s head….I painted the Eleventh Doctor today (Alex has great ideas).
I realized that watercolor isn’t exactly the best for portraits, at least not when I make them watery…but still, I’m pleased. When I get some canvases again, I’ll have to make another and see the differences. I added details to his coat and of course, added the sonic.

After that, I had an idea for an ACEO, which is basically just a mini version of the painting I made yesterday…but with words.
I made this in reference to “The Doctor’s wife” (Season 6 Episode 4). Which we watched last night on the Apple TV and was just awesome.
Life
In between the paintings I went to check out the farmers market, and then Alex eventually went to Starbucks to work so I could work out. Since Alex usually works in the living room…which is where I need space, it usually works out for him to get a change of scenery and it seems to help him concentrate. Then I can bounce around the living room until I get tired.
Food
I made eggs for lunch today and cleaned out the fridge a little. Tonight I think we’re going to go out and watch a movie. 😀

My Friend Felix

For some reason it just seemed fitting to make a 5×7 acrylic painting of Felix Felicis while listening to the last half of the Half Blood Prince. I thought it would be fun to include a short essay on the potion too…or at least some of an essay.

I also managed to correct and redesign the wand on my previous Harry Potter inspired painting of the Lumos spell. It looks way better now.

I picked up the Deathly Hallows from the library today, so I’ll get to start that later this week and I’ll finally be done with tapes! So happy the last book is on CD, I’m tired of the tapes garbling and the stuff coming out. CD’s are far superior.
In non-harry potter news, I have my cord back, so I can play WoW again! yay!
