RED POPPIES @ 8/20/14 sfa by kimartist

Finished version of my gypsy drawing in color (previous b&w version below).

Seems like a sort of hybridized cross between Klimt, Picasso and Matisse?

I had a hard time photo-ing this, so I put up a couple of versions…

BOATS ON THE BEACH A LA VAN GOGH @ 8/19/14 sfa aceo atc by kimartist

A miniature impression of a miniature impression - now that’s ALL crazy, LOL.

Which must be why I made MY fishing poles all jabber-whacky like a bunch of school girls jumping up and down waving their arms? Rofl.

As you can see, the color register/schemes were completely different in my two models (the book and the refrigerator magnet), which actually freed me up to be a little “looser” with my color choices… Take what you like, leave the rest. ;)

BRATTY CAT POSING 2 @ 8/18/14 sfa aceo atc by kimartist

Libby is not really a bratty cat, but she turned out looking that way in the art, so I went with it. ;)

As an aside: You know how some cats are hard to photograph? Not this child. A total and complete ham sandwich my Libby is.

QUESTION: Anyone recognize the game box Libby is sitting on? (tick tick tick… ding) ANSWER: Bible Trivia, circa 1980s. They should have named it Bible SCHOLAR Trivia, because heck if I could answer even half those questions, LOL. :P

With some unsold k.i.m. art in the background… LOL.

HIPPIE JOHN SPORTING HIS NEW PSYCHEDELIC ANGELS @ 8/18/14 sfa aceo atc by kimartist

If you know who the “Jesus People” were? (1960s - 70s) Then you might have an idea of where I was going with this…? ;)

LIVE MODEL SKETCHES (GLOSSY PHOTOGRAPH PAPER) @ 8/13/14 sketches by kimartist

Another repost with (hopefully somewhat) better photographs.

I’m probably going to do some more work on these before selling, so if you see something you like now… speak up before it’s too late… O yeah, and the price goes way up after I rework these, too. ;)

Keep in mind that shadows on most of these (except for the first/top pic) are not there in “real life” - the background should be white. (On the first/top pic, I used the ART-C spray ink for background texture.)

SHE’S NOT HEAVYSET, SHE’S MY SISTER @ 8/17/14 sfa aceo atc by kimartist

Loved the extreme low angle on this one.

O the difficulty of getting a decent shot with the cell phone… Bleh.

Anyhoo, I feel my weight-loss theme coming back into play… Kickboxing anyone? LOL.
