*My Le Vian three piece wedding ring and bands are getting soldered together and this Swarovski rose gold spiral ring is normally for my index finger. Beautiful and not very expensive, $175 at your local Swarovski store or you can get it online at Lord and Taylor: (click here).

My husband is always getting me new creative tools to keep me busy…I have an obsessive/compulsive personality so I will like something a lot and then just quit because I either get bored or overwhelmed. He has figured out that if I am on one project too long then he will help switch it up ever so often which decreases my panic/anxiety attacks :) Smart man…and he’s tall, has a beard, and one heck of a killer man…literally. Thanks Jason.

Taking three to seven photos and stacking them in Photoshop layers, I added motion blur filter to each layer, resized to smaller and larger formats , liquified, then I decreased opacity until I got the desired look on each layer and sometimes repeated the process a couple more times. Added a dark filter and another outside filter for a bit of color pop to each of these images, about 10 minutes each editing.

They will look amazing on large canvases next year for one of my upcoming shows. I didn’t want them so blurred you couldn’t tell what they were, I wanted each viewer to look closer to see if they can piece together what exactly is the subject. This will be a fun project…

He’s dead

I get really bored with the same old images over and over. I look at photos like a read a book, I am either going to speed read or engulf myself in each descriptive sentence…same with images. I will either quickly glance and others I will get close enough to examine each square inch.

My favorite part of every show I have been in since 2007 is observing how people look at my work, listening to their opinions and I can’t help but smile every time they like or dislike my work. People have their own taste in art…I am sure a lot of my own visual art isn’t appealing, I don’t even like some of my own pieces :) I am going to call this project my Blurred Scenery.

I have been getting some massive headaches under my eyes lately, add the pain in my hands and eyesight going bad, plus all the other physical pain I have…I am going to try to draw daily until I can’t anymore. Insomnia helped me try out some new techniques overnight. I literally went through numerous paintings, a lot went in the garbage and a few are saved for my kids. They usually get my no-goes and they add their own artistic touches. Good way to recycle your own art. Last one for today…my hands are killing me. Till next time – NE.Perkins

I would digitally create artwork like this when I was pregnant with my daughter. Decided to try masking first, then I painting background, took masking off and painting the black inside of fairy. I love it! Turned out great.

The last few days have been true Oregon summer weather all the way over here in NE Oklahoma. Might as well try my first Oregon watercolor painting. I didn’t do that bad for my first time….Ha! You should see the last couple flops…horrid! I miss my mountain! I have been able to hang out on my 3rd floor, painting and enjoying this lovely weather. Almost time to hideout inside now that the weather is going back to its original hellacious summer temp. To my Oregonians: I miss y’all terribly :)
