#inktober 17 got away from me a little bit. Got too dark on the side and it all spiraled out of control from there. Lesson learned. (This is Steve Martin).

#inktober 15 is an ink wash portrait of one of my favorite performers. I didn’t quite get her nose or eyes. Can you guess who?

Many thanks to Mary Wendel for painting my little bean - Arya. Now I have the complete set of my pets from all three of our Paint Your Pet artists (and the fourth being the one I painted of Midna).

Coelacanth Embroidery

I just put a special piece of art up in my Etsy store. This was part of the Contemporary Austin’s 5 X 7 show, where local artists presented whatever struck their fancy in a 5 inch by 7 inch format.

If you’ve never heard of a Coelacanth before, go look this guy up, because he’s fascinating. The cliffnotes version:Β Coelacanths were thought to have gone extinct in the Late Cretaceous, but were rediscovered in 1938 off the coast of South Africa. They are considered a “living fossil”.

At one time, I was making plush Coelacanths, but none of them sold, so I did not continue. I’d love to redesign them and try again. Would you be interested in a plush Coelacanth?

I’m getting a little done with the wine part of my wine & paint job. People have really been overdoing it lately. #inktober number 14
