How I spent my Birthday Vacation

Up at my folks for a few days--birthday present was some paint and canvas. And so, like any good devotee of video games--I used one on the other.


Mesmer


Mountain Trip


Star Blossoms


Private Garden


Mountain Blooms

No worries there. Today's been in and out. On the train for most of it. Home, now, but not together.

:heh: How's the economy treating you? I could make you a great deal once it dries ;)

I think it's pretty cool, myself, but it's very strongly a style Amy has no fondness for :)

To my eye, Mesmer and Mountain Bloom are beautiful, worthy of hanging anywhere. But the one that made me smile was Star Blossoms - Van Gogh on Mars! That could be your new icon, as it clearly says: I'm a talented artist who is into science fiction...

Mesmer, though simple, I think is the most polished and balanced of the lot. Trivia--it was painted upside-down from the way it's displayed and was the result of far more bad decisions than the rest put together. ;)

I actually tried a few crops on Star Blossoms but couldn't get anything that seemed right for an icon :)

Thank you :)

I really like "Star Blossoms", though I can't help but think of meatballs when I look at the lower portion of it. Nice work!

:heheh: meatballs on gravy seas--yeah, I tried to make them something "more" but wound up ruining that half and redoing it.

Now that was a productive vacation! Looks like you really had a good time :)

It was good. :) I almost wish I'd painted more, but I think the not-painting time was also good. And there's only so much of my crap the world can take ;) Or _will_ take, so far, anyway. :)
