Finally have a new painting! This is based on the Lady of Guadeloupe image of the Virgin Mary. It is 16x20 acrylic on canvas. I decided to try something new, I really tried to get the flow of the dress and robes to look realistic. I focused on adding more contrast between light and dark colors to get a shadow. I am happy with the way it turned out, one of my favorite parts is the moon, I wanted to change that up from the traditional image, just to give it some of my own touch.

Hey there! Well I graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh last Saturday, so hooray for now more school! Now I have to really focus on finding a job, I've been sending out applications and e-mails, but no one is hiring. So in my free time and boredom I played with this old photograph of my parents. I found it in a little wallet sized picture case, scanned it in and enlarged it. Then went about fixing the damage and making it look nicer. Makes you want a time machine so you could see how young they were!

Hey all, Tim needed a picture for school, so I decided to play around with one and make some improvements. I have the original, and then the one where I took away some shine and smoothed things over, and then the last one where I just had fun and added a fancy background.
