MR. GIRAFFE - a new blog post by North Carolina Painter, Sue Scoggins

This little giraffe has been commissioned and waiting to be completed for over two months.  Thank you, dear client, for your patience.  The orange underpainting in the assorted canvases in the last post was the beginning.  The canvas was completely covered with orange.  Then a brilliant liquid acrylic turquoise blue was poured on.  From there....this little guy was born.  He's ready to go to his new home and get some well deserved lovin'.

New Meaning of Yard Art - a daily art post that is NOT daily - by Susan Scoggins, North Carolina Painter

I have about 14 painting requests lined up and not enough time to do it!  It's a good problem to have and thank GOD I love to paint.  Yesterday was a beautiful sunny Emerald Isle day and I knew ice was coming in by evening.  SO, what better thing to do than lay all these canvases out, look at my notes for each one, label them on the back, and start some transparent underpainting/toning of the canvases.  No doubt the neighbors were talking about the crazy lady in the cul-de-sac.  Not so crazy....just having fun and doing my job.

Country Music, a Sunny Day and INKS - by North Carolina painter, Sue Scoggins

 It's a sunny day and I'm bebopping to country music and pouring liquid inks across a canvas to see what happens.  This will be the underpainting of some sort of water landscape.  Stay tuned.

This is a hand on INKS

Having so much fun pouring liquid acrylic ink across a 36x36 canvas. Notice the shoes!
