Preparing to Paint!

I'm getting ready to paint =)

Not sure what I'll be doing first - I might just start painting and see what shows up. I've got a few specific pieces I'll be working on, but I'm not sure in what order. I'll probably start my dragonfly painting in the next day or two. There's a little bit of a story behind it - basically a fan of mine wanted me to design a tattoo of a dragonfly for her, but she didn't have the budget for a commission, so I let her tell me what she'd like the dragonfly to look like and I promised to include at least one dragonfly in a new painting of mine. I'm going to auction the finished piece, but I'll give her a scan of the dragonfly part for her to use for the tattoo =) It's amazing - I've had over a dozen people in the past month or so get tattoos of my artwork (that I know of!). It's an amazing compliment to me as an artist!

I might do some more bio-mechanical type pieces - I've been discussing such things with the wonderful David Gough mercury_realm. He's a great fantasy artist (he's going to put up some work on eBay soon, so keep an eye out for it!) who paints gorgeous mermaids, biomorphic dark fantasy, etc. I did a lot of "Giger-esque" artwork when I was in school - I think I might look through some of my old sketchbooks and see if I find any new (old?)inspiration from them.... Which reminds me - before I moved I was going to post some of my old artwork (well, from middle school or high school)here on LJ! I'll look through some boxes and see what I can find....

But for now I'm going to start painting! I might be on and off, but you can watch me work on my webcam =)
