From "gone to the dogs" to "sick as dogs"

Since my last post, my family was hit with the H1N1 virus. Needless to say, nothing much is getting done. I thought I might work on the horse color book, since it’s something I can pick up and put down pretty easily. I hate being idle! At least, I hate being idle when I am well; now that I have the flu myself I am quite listless.

So the pretty little claybody from the previous post sits her unnamed and unphotographed. But I noticed that Sarah has put up some teasers on her blog from the article on painting conventions that I mentioned. This article dovetailed in with some of my own reflections on where I wanted to push my glazing, and it gave me new things to think about as I worked on the mare. I know I’ve plugged “The Boat” before, but truly there isn’t another magazine out there like it. At almost 250 full-color pages, it’s more like receiving an in-depth book on the nuts and bolts of creating realistic equine art. I cannot recommend it enough.I’d like to do post more of my thoughts on painting conventions and the areas where I see glazing going (or at least, my glazing!), but I think I’ll wait until I am not at such risk for fever-induced rambling!
