Progress on my project

Well, I have been working on my project. I spent a lot of time thinking about it. Deciding exactly how I wanted it to look, and then trying to figure out how to actually do it. And I have been doing some actual work on it. So here's what I have so far:

I feel a project coming on!

I'm not 100% sure what all this is going to turn into, but if it comes out good, I'll post a picture of it.

Old Artwork: The red parrots

I like it when one of my old artworks surfaces after many years. My dad sent me this. He thinks it belonged to his aunt and uncle, now long passed. I don't really remember painting it, but Dad says my signature is there. It's probably from the early '70's. I'm not really sure where the painting is now, but I would like to see it again and take a better picture someday.

This is a photo of a photo of the painting. It's out of focus and angled slightly.

This is the same image, straightened up and brightened up a little bit, and digitally re-framed.

Altered photos

I haven't really felt like drawing much lately, but I have been playing a bit with Photoshop. Here are a few of my latest favorites. They are all from pictures I took.
