Portrait of a cousin

Another fixed pic of one of my cousins. At a later date, I might revisit the pic in the future to take the texture out of it, which was caused by textured paper.

The gangs all here.

This times restored pic is of my mother when she was a kid. She looks a lot like me with out the glasses. In fact I still look the same if I pulled my hair back like that even at my current age. Ha!

preview of Caught in paradise

Another tropical themed artwork is in the works. I originally sketched it at work on a break. Possibly some of it was inspired by paint fumes aside the usual thoughts of inspiration. Finished with tracing it on textured paper and started with painting the background. I just hope the background works out cause so far I’m not quite see it. I am as usual using samples to help me visualize how it should look but it just doesn’t look as full so far. Probably because of all the distractions as always will not stop me because of that.

Updates and a pic of my young mom

Its a pic of my mom probably in her late teens early 20's. She is babysitting a young boy. When she was still living in Croatia before she got married, she taught as a daycare teacher. A day care teacher over there at the time was equivalent to a grade 1 teacher over here.
Kind of ashamed that children aren't teached like that over here otherwise children would be much more smarter around here. Instead they make dumb cartoon shows for kids like Dora the explorer that talk down to kids and dumb every thing down. Its a shame that cartoons aren't seen as just another form of entertainment for all ages. Instead they have to slap on the word education and make some money when really all it would be doing is brainwashing in to stupidity.
If you want smart kids, play with them, share with them don't dumb every thing down to the point of Dora the explorer. Yeesh!

Anyways also updated the MMMM section in the Secret Treasure vault of my K Tigress's Virtual Gallery Lair.

In a field of corn

The latest repaired pic features I guess another pic of one of my cousins probably some time in either the late 60's early 70's in a corn field. Again I had to repair the colour est.

Tranquil Tropic

New in Miscellaneous; Finally the finishing touches are done on this thing. Its hard to finish things when you have so many other things that occupy your time. I kind of wanted a banner for my boring door and something comforting to look at so I designed this originally in my sketch book, One of many drawings, fixed it up on the computer, blew it up to fit on a piece of cloth I bought at the store and took my time airbrushing it. I later cut a piece of burlap and sewed it on then added a few pieces of bamboo for it to hang from and wallah. Don't you just wish you could just jump in? I'm calling it Tranquil Tropic. Is it a sun set or is it sunrise? It's for you to determine that. The chair is just ready for you to add the towel and lounge in and sip that drink. I was fairly satisfied with it although I think I could have added some more shadows on the bottom part of the stone banisters at least, otherwise I'm pretty satisfied with it.

On a hill some place

This repaired pic was taken in the same year frame as the other one in 85. It was taken in Medjogoria where that group of children at the time had a spiritual meeting with the blessed Mother Mary about future events, things that must change and so on. In the pic you can see one of the people here who had the meeting with Mother Mary talking with one of my dear relatives. The pic was in only in two pieces as you can see and there fore was really easy and quick to fix.
