I have not touched much yarn lately, or done any dyeing except for a couple of things that I haven’t even bothered to photograph. But I have been painting a fair bit, so I thought maybe I’d share some of that instead. This is one of my earlier ones. Acrylic on canvas. Twas fun!
A part of my big commission: 'The Stations of the Cross', composed out of 14 (possibly 15?) acrylic paintings on A4 canvases, to ultimately be displayed in a church.
The idiot who ordered it requested 1 cm to be left blank all around the edges bcs of the future frames, and I'm a fool who fell for his ignorance!
After all the drama I dealt with, involving the commissioner and another person, I was pleasantly surprised upon learning that canvases always need to be painted fully bcs the frames cover up only a few mm.
Now I'm left with not only a bunch of work, but an additional bunch of work.
Recently I painted a concentration of marine life in a light that makes them seem alien,eldritch,or like just funky.
I’ve always had an immense love and fascination for marine life but I never really knew why.Just the concept of life living and swimming in waters as of it were birds flying indefinitely was strange.And the fact that we’re were much more to it than just “fish” was so extraordinary
On my Instagram I provided “in-the-field descriptions” as if they were real.I gave absurd fictional logs on the way they swim or how absurd they are for hunting food.Sure I exaggerated: angler fish using sounds,squids having exoskeletons.But I wanted to present how bizarre marine life is even if you leveled it back with regular oceanic fauna.
Originally I made them for room decor so I gave them a punk collage look but I ran out of glue lol.Ok end of posts it’s starting to lag.
