Did a little project. Don't let the word little fool you. I was asked to paint accent lines and leaves around a laser etched design of the Kansas City LDS Temple. On 15 gift boxes. In one night. Got them in the evening and finished at 4 in the morning. Yeah, that's how I paint.
The boxes still need another layer of sealant but my part was done. Well, except that there are 15 more coming sometime soon. Though I don't think the turn around will be that much of a panic. I hope.
Do you do projects from the heart, that your head says, "What?"
I was a student of Richard Hull (Illustrator) for several years. He did a demo with acrylics and palette knife in class one day and he whipped it out rather quickly. I'm pretty sure he was going to throw it away but I asked if I could have it. (Isn't that clever of me.) He obliged and signed it for me as well. Just read here that he will be retiring next year from teaching after 23 years. Wow. Put he isn't putting down his paintbrush. Seems he might be on to bigger fish.
