Things





I discovered that I can use acrylics in my sketchbook without warping the paper. I just lay down an initial layer, wait for it to dry, and then anything I paint after that, regardless of how wet it is, won't make the paper buckle. Cool, eh? Some sketchbook stuff and a cutout from an image I'm working on. Getting pretty close to having everything ready for critique.

I love the last image. Not sure what it is about it but the colors and texture of the paint make my little "I wish I was an artist like Sam" heart jump for joy

Sam you rock!!! I love your art. So where can I get a Sam Ricks original? Every time I see your painting hanging in Scott's house I think that I need to get one before you are so enormously famous a poor school teacher will never be able to afford one! How's school going?

I love that you (being anyone in general) don't even fathom what that light from the fish ship is actually hitting. Yikes!! It'll be fun when you finally post the real stuff.
