Commission for of her allegorical figure of the deadly sin Lust.
Oh, I forgot to mention, too, that this was another one of my color experiments. Warm light and cool shadow tends to be the general rule. I just upped the contrast, let's say, and did away with most of the local color. The original character hadn't been colored yet; I was allowed to pick my own. I ended up focusing on the quality and color of the light more than the color of the figure.
Saint Barnaby didn't like anybody. If this were a standard story of saints, he would have a conversion experience and become a friend to young and old alike, but it isn't, and he didn't. He didn't like anybody, he was born not liking anybody, he went to his grave not liking anybody.
Between those two events, however, he stood off three attacks by Huns on his monastery, more or less singlehandedly, because he didn't like armed raiders any more than he liked anybody else. Since the monastery was being used to house the wounded from all those Hun attacks at the time, he became a minor patron saint of hospitals and nurses, although he probably wouldn't have liked people praying to him anymore than he liked anything else.
----------------- Saint Barnaby is based on the obscure, but awfully cool Red River Hog, a wild pig found in Africa and Madagascar, who have some of the greatest eyebrows in the world.
The original is 6 x 9ish, going to the AC art show unless somebody really really needs it for their Red River Hog collection, and prints are available for $10 plus shipping. Send a note or visit [link] for details.
Quick the donkey looked up the cliffside. The voodoo doll was making impatient motions for them to climb up, never mind that it was a near-vertical surface with very few hoofholds.
It was easy for him to say, thought Quick glumly. He was made out of burlap and stuffing. The worst thing a fall could do to him was bend a few of his pins. But of course he never seemed to stop and think of the more splattery members of the group.
As Quick watched, the voodoo doll grimaced and switched to a gesture that shouldn't have been possible for a being without middle fingers, but which was remarkably expressive nonetheless.
"I'm sorry," said the goldfish, in her small, burbling voice. "Pins means well. He's just...impatient."
Quick wanted to tell her exactly what Pins could do with his impatience, but he was a well-brought-up donkey, and it certainly wasn't her fault. He sighed again instead, and started looking for a way up.
6 x 24 mixed media (mostly acrylic.) Been awhile since I painted Quick and his cohorts, and I had this board that just kinda called to me...

Whew, just hammerin' out the art for AC. I...think...I might actually have enough for the art show. It scares me to SAY that, because once you say it, either the cat eats your showpiece or somebody buys you out or something, but...there it is. I think I'm set.
This is just a straightforward portrait of a sort of steampunky hare and his faithful lizard lab assistant. Chemistry. We likes it.

Songkran Festival is considered as Thai New Year celebration, which falls on 13-15 April of every year. In this festival, people can splash water to each other. Since Songkran falls in the hottest month here, water is needed to cool us down.
These days, Lesus and I are supposed to do exercise every morning. If not, we would be sleeping, playing around, eating, and wasting a day lazily.
We've been doing many different kinds of exercise such as rope-jumping, jogging, weight-lifting, etc. Our shoulder got a bit hurt last two days. As a result, we had to put on an analgesic cream which helps to relief muscular aches and pains. It feels very hot!!!
