GETTING AHEAD OF MYSELF SO EARLY IN THE GAME!

50/50 #6

50/50 (6)
Well, it turns out I miscounted and this is actually #6, the previous being number 5.  I know my math skills are under par but I was sure (up to this point) that I could count to 10 without any trouble.  Apparently, I was mistaken.  Actually, what happened is that the one I did fifth doesn't fit in stylistically with these, so I am renumbering them and confusing the hell out of myself.  It will all work out.  When they are all done, I just have to put my name and a date on the back.

I worked on three today and they are much more painterly with chiaroscuro.  I will decide later if I want to give that effect to all of them.  I just can't keep things simple.  I guess I find it boring to keep doing the same thing over and over exactly in the same way.  

Here's a great quote from a wonderful little book I just purchased called "Steal Like an Artist...10 things nobody told you about being creative" by Austin Kleon

"Don't worry about unity from piece to piece - what unifies your work is the fact that you made it"

You're an artist, you don't have to do math! ha ha I love the quote - and am enjoying your series. I would like to see them all, whether they fit in with the series or not, just to see how busy you've been (and maybe give me a kick in the pants to do something besides feel like a wet washrag from the heat and humidity). Keep 'em coming, Myrna!!
