It’s been way too long since my last update, so there’s a lot to go through. First off, in June I got my mounted print of Glass and Gold from Redbubble! It turned out great!
The colors are right on, with very deep blacks and bright yellows. It’s incredibly light, weighing in under a pound, so it can hang just about anywhere. The paper used for the print itself is really glossy (it’s actually difficult to photograph without a glare or reflection), but that doesn’t seem to be a problem unless photographing it. I’m currently looking for a good home for it, so if you or someone you know might be interested, let me know
I’ve also been going back through old flame files to see if anything can be reworked into something I like. I definitely recommend going through your old work, fresh eyes can help you see something you might have missed before that you can really bring out!
This was almost completely different when I first came back to it. The only similarities were the color scheme and the basic sphericals form. Working with it for several hours, I decided to get rid of the original hyperbolic transform (which made it look all spiky and thorny) and went back to more familiar plate, rings, and spheres. I’m really excited with how this turned out now.
This was actually a flipped disc, like Power, in red and cream. I found that a polar final transform could take the normal circular shape and give me some interesting squares and rectangles. With a little more tweaking in GIMP, I was able to make those reds pop.
Well, I’m going to do my very best to keep everyone apprised of my progress on a more regular basis, even if it’s just a little note mentioning a piece that’s not quite complete. I always welcome any feedback, questions, whatever, so get to commenting and I’ll blog at you later!
