I’m seriously considering not posting WIPs anymore because of these comments. I’m not sharing my work so you can make a DIY version.
Please don’t let people like that get under your skin. They just want to be jerks, and want attention. Most people completely lack the skill, knowledge and patience to do what you do…
I love seeing your work in progress. I love watching others explore and experiment in their art. And I frankly love seeing you come up with stuff I’d throw money at your to own!
And to all those twits out there who see awesome art then say “I can do that” like it’s no big deal. Shut the hell up. Seriously. No artist enjoys having someone say that about their work. It’s rude, devalues their sense of accomplishment, and effects their sense of self-worth. Just don’t do it. Even if by some rare likelyhood that you COULD reproduce the quality or theme of the piece. Just, keep that kind of shit to yourself, k?
CHANUR’S BREAKOUT (1991) by Michael Whelan, cover for the book by C.J. Cherryh.
I loved this book.
Digital speed-paint based off the photos I took yesterday evening. Took longer than it should have, but I had to take quite a few breaks to rest my hand, and frankly it’s been a long time since I used the tablet.
Beautiful post-storm sky this evening. Thought I’d share…
Photos from the garden today. 08/19/14.
The cherry tomatoes are finally turning red. I managed to harvest a dozen or so. They taste fantastic! :)
The Chard is doing well, as is the Kale. But with how cold it’s been, I’m not surprised.
Butternut squash is missing some fruits… like, gone. Not rotted away, but missing. I’m suspicious that a local pest Raccoon may be snatching them in the night. Which would tick me off, let me tell ya. Given that I got NO zucchini this summer, as ALL the zucch’s failed to thrive. I’ve had NO squash at all this year. :/
The Sage is doing alright. I’m really hoping it survives the winter and comes back bigger and better next summer.
I scattered Dill seeds in different spots in the backyard. Hoping some survive and sprout next spring.
The little old fart broke out at some point this morning and I didn’t even realize he was missing. I moved a garbage bag away from my front hallway while getting my dog ready for a walk. And surprise! There he was looking at me like “whut?”. So now he’s in “snake jail” aka, the Snake Rack. Until I decide whether or not I’m going to repair/replace his tank lid or make the tub thing permanent. I’m leaning towards making it permanent. He’s proven himself a habitual escape artist over the past fourteen years (and ONLY him, no one else has EVER escaped on me). So I might just leave him in the rack, or get one of my other tubs with the lid locks and set that up for him.
