I just made a new acrylic painting.  It looks great in reality, but when I scan it, not so much.  The light is reflecting so bad off all the little canvas bumps.  You miss out on a lot of the detail.  I'm going to put it up, but keep in mind how much detail it's lost.  I'm going to try to take a picture of it and see how that works out.  But for now, here it is:

I'm pleased with the way it came out.  I just have to figure out the fuzzy bump issue.

Ergh, not again!

I'm so tired of snow!  I can't stand driving in it.  I don't like the cold.  I just want to move somewhere that its room temperature everyday.  I don't know if that place exists, but I'd like to go there.  I've also been getting these terrible headaches everyday.  Don't know if that is weather related.  But it is annoying. 

All this indoor time should be good for my art-making, but my headaches are kind of destroying my motivation.  I'm trying to get an acrylic painting done, but it's slow going.  There's so many things I want to make, but I lack the time and motivation I guess.  I would post the painting here, but it really is in the beginning stages and not sure if it's worth seeing.

Resolutions IF...

The theme this week for Illustration Friday is "resolutions".   My resolution this year is to relax and enjoy the world more.
