FRIDAY ART BLOGGING-my uncle Ken's stuff
i was at my uncle Ken's house to be their for a delivery of their new entertainment center. so i took advantage of taking some pics of stuff they have that i did. 1st, one of my clint pastels. the 1st of 3. my jane russell psychadelic pastel. and a watercolor of baby ducks. OY. they are so NORMAL looking!!! but does prove i can do 'real' eh?
i suppose i will have to go to the cusp of my psychadelic phase. all because of willard my 1st drawing instructor who sent us out around the school to draw. when i came back s these started, he asked if i was dropping acid. 'what?' jane and clint came in my 2nd year. the 2nd semester of drawing we had an idiot instructor who went all academic. had to draw a yellow, red, and blue fucking block for WEEKS! after willard it SUCKED!
i was going to a county libray and just taking biography books. starting with a and i got julie christie and clint eastwood. also my aunt had film books. i sort of dropped doing this style after doing the mona lisa. i guess i got bored with 'super real'.

before i forget. house appeared big from the outside, or maybe it was the side screened in awning that had a tree in the middle of it. BIG trees in front yard chi chi neighborhood. LARGE vinyl awning, sreened in and had a tree in the middle. printing press in basement, but just teeny tiny metal font. shh, i found 2 mini wood ones. the walls were similar spanish plaster, organic pattern, but not leafy. nice wood bannister. bad kitchen update. but wallpapering the front entry over the spanish plaster??? oy. did find another nice ice pick and looked at a folio of nicely reprinted art prints. mostly rembrant. cool.
i did like the big beautiful trees of the yard. if the new owners remove them, they are stupid stupid people.
