I started Around the Korner several years ago. I keep adding as
My Art Notes
art concepts Updated:
My art notes started as scribbles from books in my sketchbook.
Then I decided, what if I gathered all my notes in one place and
tacked them into each of my Art Journals.

- 072302: 20-27 I had such a vivid dream
An Art Timeline of Sorts - Sometime between Jan 2003 to June 2003
- I was doing a series of xwp folks as paintings. I started
Gabrielle and the outline came out so well I just couldn't face
the possibility of putting paint on it and ruining the picture.
So, yes, I know the lips are a bit exxaggerated, but damn I
love the impish smile. (Januarish)
Ares - He was just
plain fun to paint. He *wanted* to be painted. I was trying
to do something "new" with the background, because
Kym pointed out that I wqas going with a particular color as
background a whole lot. So I went bright. I don't know what
I was thinking, but I am relieved to say that it seemed to work.
The Tree - Then I
was watching Jerry Yarnell and had an epiphany about trees and
paint and I had to try it and lo, it was good. (Sometime right
Color Man - Then
- in late April, early May - I read this book and it had a section
on color that just blew me away and I had to try it. I kept
on trying it. And the color worked. I painted this while I was
watching Real Men. It was fun.
- Every one keeps telling me that I should sign my name to my
paintings. I keep saying that's not how I was trained at school.
In fact, they wouldn't let us sign our names. We had to use
little cards in/on the back of the painting. This was great,
except people kept stealing paintings. I don't think I ever
heard of a semester that someone's work wasn't stolen. But then
there was the fact that I have *always* hated the way I sign
my name in paint. Hated it. But I thought, oh heck, I'll practice.
And, as I was practicing - I guess because I was ready - I found
one I could live with. And I went ahead and played around some
with the paint while I was at it. Practiced measuring. (2nd
Week of May)
- This is the signature from the painting I did of stohli. She
just looked too cute sitting in front of the blinds. (2nd Week
Color Cat - So
I'd been reading more on the use of color and Painting "Fun."
So I decided to try out painting "Fun" It worked I
think. (3rd Week of May)
Painted - And as soon as I finished the Color Cat painting
I needed to try something else out. (3rd Week of May)
- A couple of days later, and whoa did she turn out well. Which
was reassuring, because I wasn't so hot on the way the Gabrielle
painting came out, though I sure learned a lot from her.
Xena Painted - Last
night I was feeling terrible. I knew I needed to paint and didn't
feel like it, but finally was "pressured" most gently
into it. So i popped in a X:WP tape and watched an episode and
painted it. It was the episode where Joxer gets beat up for
some gold and Xena gets pissed and decides to destroy a bad
guy's life and profit at gambling. (June 3, 2003)
I think there has been some definite leaps of consciousness there.
This is one of the joys of doing art, I think. In the meantime I've
been writing, editing, paying with 3d images, taking photos now
and then, drawing (a lot) and just whatever was in the moment.
