paint number 2

This is a project Ive been working on this week and Im really happy with these 2 paintings Ive been working a lot lately experimenting with different painting styles and techniques and researching my favorite artists some include, lori earley, mark ryden, and ray caesar. Im drawn to deep dark art ive noticed and im really trying to work on developing my technique and finding my own personal style. I really like this messy style which is more like wes borlands...

Since its a snow day Ill probably be painting working with oils and including no paint thinner. I wanna see how using pure oils looks.

For my very first oil painting I thought it acceptable to to remake original works.

The other night while we were watching the very last episode of Sons of Anarchy (season one) *tearteartear* I knitted a little pair of fingerless gloves just for fun. Ive actually never completed a 'knitting' project before this so it was a pretty big deal to me they may have several holes and they dont exactly fit right but Im proud :) see....

Its quite easy just knit a rectangle big enough to fit around you wrist and hand the sew together leaving a hole for you thumb. voila!

Good Night yous.

Muuuusic Monday

I decided to do a weekly music post of whatever I'm listening to the at the moment called music monday! I really love when people have weekly traditions on their blogs so I wanted to start my own I'll probably have more in the future but for now its musicccc monday. :)

This week I have been seriously obsessed with Muse.... and Slipknot. But I wanna talk about Muse.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic I've been listening to this in my car non-stop. It's soooo pretty.

and we bought this...Image and video hosting by TinyPic today and I have a feeling it will be my new favorite record to paint to....and I love the art work.

Below is a recent interview I found of Matt Bellamy (he pretty much is Muse) and I think its really interesting. I love how he is so simple about the most complex things (i.e. relationship problems, government issues...)  enjoy!

How the devil are you? 
– I’m not in a great mind-frame… I’ve had a rough week.  But we’ve been playing concerts in the UK this week that have been amazing. 
What’s been the best thing about this century?
 – Blimey.  I have a fishbowl memory; I am not very good at retrospectives.  So I am going to say our gig in Sheffield recently.  The crowd were just mental.  We’d played some shows in North America and Northern Europe on the tour but it was a different ballgame in Sheffield, a noticeable shift in atmosphere.  It was amazing.
 And the worst? 
– I remember getting really drunk and eating an entire chorizo sausage while we were playing in Spain, and being sick for three whole days.  Waking up in a pool of sick on the day of the concert is not a good place to be. 
What’s the most extravagant thing you’ve bought in the ‘00s?
– I’ve put a deposit down on one of those Tesla cars, the electric cars.  They’re about 110,000 pounds, which is pretty expensive for a car.  But it won’t need petrol so I am hoping it will pay for itself in the next 30 years.
What is the most decadent party you’ve had recently?
– We don’t go that decadent any more.  We had a party in Berlin and A-ha showed up to drink our champagne, but it wasn’t wild.  We keep it pretty frugal these days, I am not sure there’s much room for the excesses of rock’n’roll with the way the world is now.  Dom (Howard) and Tom (Kirk, Muse’s media manager/web master and Bellamy’s best friend) are both single, so they’re living the party life on behalf of everyone else.  We get to hover around it, and when people start pulling their clothes off I go home and phone my girlfriend. 
What are the best and the worst things about having a psychologist for a girlfriend?
– The best thing is getting free therapy and the worst thing is getting free therapy.  She has a way of reading some meaning into everything you say and do, and that can do your head in: sometimes you just want to keep it shallow and talk about the weather. 
Is there any chance of wedding bells? (Unintended muse-pun by the journalist)
– Um, well, you know how I said I was having a rough week?  Well, it’s exactly the opposite at the moment, we’re kinda on the rocks as we speak, so who knows what the future holds?
Oops.  Moving on… Hoodoo was voted Lyric Of The Decade by Q readers: which lyric are you most proud of?
– Hoodoo?  That’s weird!  I like, “Rise up and take the power back, it’s time the fat cats had a heart attack” from Uprising.  It sums up how I and a lot of people feel about this banking crisis.  Not many of those people in the high region of wealth deserve their wealth: the Duke Of Westminster is a pretty fat cat and someone should take him down!  I’m coming to the conclusion that the UK needs a constitution.  I’m a libertarian but it feels like a time for a drastic change.  Because Britain has no constitution there’s no higher power than the government – I think that’s why the UK is getting so done over. 
Have you got into trouble for your views over the years? 
– I was thrown off a plane.  I got searched in quite a vigorous manner before getting on a plane to America and I made a bad joke about not having a bomb on me.  Two home security officers took me off and asked about my political views.  I told them what they wanted to hear so that I could get back on the plane.  Quite often coming to the US now I get red-flagged, taken aside and asked about my political views.  Don’t make bad jokes on planes is the moral of that story. 
Has conspiracy theory uber-lord David Icke been in touch yet?
– Not yet.  We played the Isle Of Wight festival and he lives there, so I fancied getting him on stage to make a speech, but it never happened.  I think he might think I am a lizard.  Some of the real hardcore conspiracy theory types think that those who aren’t hardcore enough are working for the other side, so he might regard me as falling into that category.  I’ll have to be careful. 
Do you have a favourite conspiracy theory from this century? 
– My favourite is that oil is endless and the notion that it will run out is a conspiracy to justify government actions…  I don’t know if I believe it, but I hope it’s true – otherwise we are going to run out of oil in 10 years and all sorts of wars are going to kick off.
Well, you’ll be alright; you’ll have your electric car… 
– Exactly!  I’m prepared.
Can you sum up your century in a Tweet of less than 140 characters? 
– It’s been a great decade, I hade some great times, had some ups and downs, but I’d do it all again.
