The Eyes Have It

I’m testing out some different eye techniques on 2 x 3 canvas. The eyes are one of the most difficult things for me to get right when using acrylics. 

First I went for the normal sparkly look.

Meh.

Then I tried a close up of someone crying.

And then I thought, I should paint vampire eyes.

Lets face it, vampires rock. Oh, and of course the vampire should be crying blood instead of normal tears.  Because, you know, there are simply not enough paintings out there of vampires shedding tears of blood.

So, here you go..

One more vampire crying tears of blood.

Your welcome world.

New site and a new painting

New site, new blog. So, my old web site and all my files were apparently deleted with a system upgrade that no one bothered to tell me about. It was the third time this has happened in the last year, so I waved farewell to my previous hosting service.

Do you think I backed up any of my files? Of course I did! I just can’t seem to locate them at the moment…

I tried to re-register my old domain mstingley.com, but that was an epic fail. So, I went with Margieart.com instead. It kinda you know, made sense since I call my site Margie Art.

Anyway, the moral of this story is, back up your shit people. I mean it. And, remember where the heck you saved all the stuff to. Trust me, it will save you hours of frustration and tears.

Your welcome world.

Now look at the pretties…

Just finished working on a new acrylic painting titled Forest Nymph. This was done on 8 x 8 wood block.
