Going for the Gusto

The iris piece is moving along and I already have an idea of what the next piece will be. I was going to make something ridiculously huge but I’ve decided that I want to submit work to new american paintings and one of book arts press’ other publications….Long story short the “other publication’s” deadline is friday and they only allow two or three pictures however new american paintings’ deadline is in 4 weeks and they allow 4 so I need to make an extra small piece so I can submit the best 2 for the first one. After the longest sentence ever, I’ve decided on orange hibiscus for my next subject matter. It should be fun 🙂

I learned all about irises today on wikipedia. More like I learned what a lot of different people that have edited wikipedia have to say about them. My current favorite breed is called the samurai warrior and it’s pretty wicked. Also the fleur-de-lis is modeled after an iris, go figure. I could never figure out how to draw those things because I didn’t have a shape to compare them to… But I digress. Here is the progress I’ve made on my irises:

I probably won’t be blogging until after I finish the hibiscus piece but I’ll be sure to post photo updates on facebook and twitter 😉 That’s all for now, stay tuned folks! 😀
