Blue Giraffe

This semester I moved to a new studio, one that has windows. I was so excited to finally have natural light in my studio, so I brought in some plants to decorate my windowsill. I still felt like I needed more color, and was inspired by all the gold-leafed or painted animals I had seen on Pinterest. So, meet Gerald the blue giraffe!

Also, I have noticed many new followers in the past few weeks, and I would love to meet you all and hear how you found my blog! Welcome to the blog and I hope you enjoy!

363/366 – Experiments

I don’t normally crop my images to strange sizes, but I like how this one looked. This is one of my many “experiments” for my grad work. Any guesses as to what you are looking at? I’m curious to see what you all think. And, this image (of an image) has actually sparked some further ideas that I plan on playing around with.

The next two days are going to be insane again, so I may hold off on finishing this project until the end of the week.

358/366 – Gustaf

I completely forgot to take a photograph yesterday, which you would think wouldn’t happen at this point in the project. And today I spent a good chunk of my day in studio reading for class, so I grabbed this shot of my other fish quick before leaving.

Also, lately I have been very aware of how different my mind functions being an artist. My friend and I picked out the color of the glass rocks because it would be the compliment of the color of the fish, and therefore make him look more blue; it is not a normal way of thinking.

354/366 – The calm before the storm.

I have been busy planning for the class I will be teaching this semester, and so when I saw the beautiful light in the empty classroom this evening I had to grab a shot. Ironically enough the file number is the same as the course number I will be teaching. And, this is my first photograph in daylight in 4 days, so that is exciting.
