I’ll start off by saying that spring break did me some good. I got some sun (Thank you California), I relaxed, explored the never-ending Los Angeles and even got some art done! I’ve actually started a new series. My boyfriend managed to get his hands on 5 plain skateboard decks that have absolutely no finish on them **I almost cried when he told me** and have begun a new series. He actually helped with the new idea as well. The idea focuses on Evolution and will be shown across all boards. The sequence is still not set in stone, but hey, I got it started. So here is what I’ve been working on:
This first picture shows the sketch ready to transfer and in position of where it’ll be placed:
This is a shot of the finished outline and the major details in progress:
And lastly the finished burning:
I’m really happy with how it turned out and have already started the second board. I’ll try to put up pictures soon.
**One question I have is, should iI leave the board as is and call it complete, or add a stain to the wood? The stain would most likely be a slightly dark brown/red. Opinions and insights would be greatly appreciated!!
First off, here is the FINISHED Product of the gift I had posted about earlier. It’s a little hard to see, but I’ve added a “wood grain” effect on the border. Feel free to post and tell me what you think!
Next, my favorite piece of all time has sold!
This piece was the first woodburning I had ever done and what solidified my love of woodburning. It was sad to see it go, but it has a fantastic new home now!
Starting tomorrow, I have absolutely no class and no work because I will be in the lovely state of California, on my summer break, focusing on nothing but art! So you will be seeing posts on new pieces and most likely new items in my shop! I’ve marked down a ton of items so please take a look!
So last night I totally forgot to mention I have an etsy shop. I’ve put up most of my artwork on that site, but of course there are a few gems I can’t bear to sell. Check it out at http://www.etsy.com/shop/sarucas . I know it really hasn’t been updated in a while and it’s mainly older stuff but it’s all for sale and I’m slowly working on new projects. There just isn’t enough time in a day!
On a side note, evil homework needs to be defeated today… and as soon as that’s done and over with, the first “real” blog begins! I say real because I’ve been itching to show some things rather than talk about it. What was that? You’d like a sneak peak? Oh I can’t do that. Oh fine, if you’re going to twist my arm about it…
It’s an AWESOME, super simple recipe for a delicious… TREAT! I can’t give it all away. What kind of blogger would I be?
I’ll document step by step guide and I promise it’ll be the best _____ you’ll have ever tasted!
