Happy Halloween

Sat Oct 31, 2015, 8:13 PM
Actually I haven't done anything noteworthy for Halloween, despite that it always was my favorite holiday; I don't even have any chocolate. :( But Happy Halloween anyway.

I finally made a new painting which gives me an excuse to write a new journal entry, not that I really have a reason to do that anyway. 

National Novel-Writing Month begins in two hours and my sister is coming to visit for a week or two. So of course this strikes me as a perfect time to start painting more.

My nice Epson 1640XL scanner is gone and the smaller scanner on my new cheap little all-in-one jobbie is not, I think, quite of the same caliber. But I'll just paint small things with bad color to begin with and no one will notice.

I keep wanting to try to paint more stylized things with less realism, since that's the kind of art I really like, but I keep failing in that.

So overall I suppose I shall endeavor to paint small things inaccurately with bad color quickly. This should be simple, right?


MistiqueStudio's Profile Picture
Misti Hope Wudtke
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
“Mistique Studio” is the rather-too-professional-sounding title for the collective artistic output of Misti Hope Wudtke, ostensibly a human being from the planet known locally as Earth. She currently resides in Madison, Wisconsin, USA, where she dithers about whether to spend her free time writing or painting, and therefore rarely gets much of either done. In Real Life she works as a Geospatial Analyst, which is a pretentious way of saying she makes maps on a computer.

Misti works almost exclusively with watercolors, since acrylics dry out too fast and oils smell bad. Her favorite subjects are fantasy creatures, songbirds, horses, and pretty much anything except people, because hands are so blessed hard to draw. Yes, My Little Ponies were her favorite toy when she was little, and No, she does not like the new ugly ones, thank you very much.

In her spare time, Misti enjoys long walk in dark forbidding forests, exercising all the rights and responsibilities of a crazy cat lady, and talking about herself in the third person.

Greetings from the Art meetup! Your stuff is really amazing and it makes me feel odd.

Greetings to you! (I really wish there was the option for dA to send an email when one gets a comment.)

Thank you! But, I'm not sure how to take the "odd" thing. Hopefully you don't feel "odd" in a bad way. My stuff isn't supposed to be bad-odd-feeling-engendering, lol.
