Good afternoon, it’s nice to see you again thanks for coming by. Today I’ve been spending some time with a dear friend and collector of my art. One of the very few I’ve had the pleasure of meeting face to face. Today’s Process post is just a quick touch base as I have an appointment in a bit. Yesterday we added some color and then had to do my least favorite thing as a painter. Literally watch the paint dry. Pretty darn boring if you ask me. So this is what we waited for from yesterday:
Since I’ve seriously only had a few minutes with it today this is what we have now:
This particular piece I will be using my glazing technique on, meaning it will eventually have hundreds of micro thin layers of paint at different thicknesses to create depth and color differentials.
Here is a close up up the coral technique being used, this style of texturing with allow me to build depth by pooling the paint in the valleys and crevasses.
If my appointment this evening goes well and I’m not completely exhausted then I’d very much like to continue to work on this tonight, if not then tomorrow it is.
Until then much love and afternoon naps for all.
Ps: say goodbye to the Grapes as they have gone off to there new home today.
Good morning, I figured posting when I actually got up us excessive so I waiting till now. See because I have this rule no coffee before 3am unless you haven’t gone to be yet, which I have.
Any how it’s time to make coffee and start my day if not sleeping and painting YAY plus I get to hang out with a friend today….yes I do actually know a human or two.. And well if we lived under an hour from each other we could meet for coffee as well. Speaking I coffee again I’m in need.
Much love talk to you when I’m actually awake enough to talk.
Greetings, I hope the day is treating you well today. Thanks for coming by the studio its great to see you again. Today we will continue in the process of creating these two pieces the other day we left off with the two panels having had multiple layers of primer(not gesso) applied and today we will begin adding some color and texture.
Where we started. Here we have the first on many many layers of color and texture:
Ooooo what’s it going to be? Well…. We’ll just have to wait and see right?
Oh no somebody spilled gesso all over…. Ha, why yes, yes I did but in a very specific place and pattern.
The green and yellow piece is going to change so much I think you’ll be pretty surprised when we go on to the next steps. I am using the coral texturing technique on this piece for a very specific reason which will become evident as the piece evolves. With this piece I already have a name and highly specific image I’m going to try and draw out of these panel.
This is a close up of the panel on the right. I have a color scheme in mind and a eventual goal (feeling) that I’d like evoke but because it’s an emotional piece the process will be far more in depth than the green and yellow piece.
Right then I’m back at it, these textural pieces need to dry and I need to paint, I still need to finish Green Girl and Grapes of Wrath . Once again thanks for coming by you lol beautiful as always, do please take care and I’ll see you again shortly.
Good morning, I hope you slept well.
I think today might just be a fantastic day. I to slept last night…really you say, but Benjamin you don’t sleep. I know right well from 10p – 4a angels wings embraced my soul and gave me strength to come fight another day.
So in turn let me spread that love and joy to all who are in need. Find strength in small places, don’t forget to look up there’s a whole world above us. Know one thing you are love and cherished.
Good evening, afternoon and morning. Please add your name here __________.
After spending the day with my most super fantastic son who is 13 going on 13 and pretty sure he’s more than happy to never get any older and become a giant troll who occupies the game room for the rest of his natural born life.
I have now learned how to make the most obscure things in mine craft ever thought possible. I’ve been reminded how absolutely useless algebra is to normal every day life. I’ve also watched 4,600,234.00 YouTube videos about absolutely nothing. But they for the most part were so wicked funny, ok yes I’m 42 going on 13 I admit
You will now be returned to your regularly scheduled broadcast as the Process Pt.2 and Greeting from the Studio will resume tomorrow at there normal times. This has been a service announcement from BMP Studio.
Big hugs and kisses.
Ps: if you remember that tv show theme song,……your old just like me.
As this frame shakes and quakes
Under the strain of its own making
I search the sky, I search your eyes.
For some glimmer of what was lost may be found.
Alas, tis not for the making or breaking of this man to decide.
The colors fade from my dreams
As the demons creep in
Stealing piece of my soul
I’ve left behind for all to find
Bread crumbs for the birds
Ravens and crows to pick my bones clean.
and wait for these things to pass
Like the remaining days of this
Pain drips from every pore
Like the tears of a child left
For to long, calling to nothing
Won’t you please…… Ease this pain in my brain in the rain…..
Gone, lost and left…
I spent the wee hours on the morning writing a very lengthy post / poem and thoughts o the day only to find that it didn’t save to WP: In short I will be taking a little break today to work out some physical and family issues that have come up know that I love you all and will post today if a can, until later I leave you with some music and images.
There are some things in life that I feel a man should move mountains and part seas for and if he’s not willing to do so, well then he’s not much of a man, gentleman or person is he.
I hope love guides you through your day and you find peace, love and hope in your heart. I will be spending the day treat to heal my very very broken body today and spending some quality time with my son. The one true reason I still walk this earth.
You didn’t actually think I could end it on such a somber tone did you? To quote a wise and honorable bird
“He don’t know me very well do he”
Over and out
