Hi there! This baby right here was my big splurge of 2016. A monitor I could draw directly on. It’s a 22″ Cintiq Creative Display, made by Wacom. It’s been life-changing. Seriously.
My weeks of late have been rather full and purposeful, as I zero in on completing various projects and goals. I took a break for a First Friday event, and snapped a few photos along the way.
Rowhouses, like so many of the mid-1800s era ones found here in Boston, often capture my imagination. And you know that delicious spy-like feeling of walking through your neighborhood just after twilight, when the lights are going up in homes…
What’s today, Tuesday? That means I haven’t left home in at least 4 full days. I was down for the count with a cold-cough-fluey condition. But from my windows I can see the big chunks of white on the cityscape growing smaller every day. I see people walking by in less heavy clothing, looking a lot less hunched over. It’s happening, folks. Spring is inching closer. I went excavating in some of my less-recent artwork files and found this lovely beast. This began with a photograph I took, somewhere in the city, which I pulled into Photoshop to paint. I’ve got a small print run scheduled for this week, and I’ve decided to have this giclée printed in 18″ x 24″. When I saw it today, it spoke to me. It is the spring bouquet that is beginning to blossom in my head, a few steps ahead of the real thing. Cheers, Paula More Paula Ogier Artworks.
There are just a few finishing touches left to do on Cali’s portrait. For now, it exists only onscreen! Then it will become a high resolution jpeg file, which I’ll take to my printer to have a giclée print made.
