This is Mr.Hootsey, my two foot tall stupid looking vintage ceramic lamp. There's more work to be done on this painting, but right now I can't be arsed.
I bought an Asus eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee slate tablet pc. It's a fancy toy that's making it fun for me to do paintings from life. I do feel guilty that I rarely uses real paint, and fear that I'll be spoiled by the forgiving crutch that is computer painting. But there's no set up or mess involved, which works for a transient wanderer like me.
