Ain't So Hot

My friend Penny and I have a standing joke between us... cat videos are all right, but if you REALLY want to cheer someone up, share a goat video.  So we do, frequently.

Another friend shared this picture of her goat guy and he made me laugh.  I told her that even though I had a dozen projects, everything was going to have to go on hold till I paint Nerd Goat.  Isn't he adorable!?


Yeah, so I bought this hot press paper when Bran and I went to Jerry's Art-a-Rama.  I cut myself a 6x6 piece of it and got to work.  Well, I don't know if it's only sized on one side and I used the wrong side or what, but it was really not workable with wet media, it kept balling up the way you'd expect a napkin to if you tried to paint on it.  BLAH.  I may try it again, but the way it responded was completely unworkable for this piece so I scrapped it.  Darnit... NERD GOAT MUST BE PAINTED!  Maybe I will save him for September's 30 Paintings in 30 Days, though.

I didn't want to start all over because I knew I didn't have enough time to finish at this point, so I tinkered with another project that's been rolling around in my brain for a little while now.   I think I'll save it for another post, though.

Check back in for Nerdgoat!
