Acrylic Moon

A moon is a pretty thing to paint!

(Edit: I used the burn tool in Adobe Photoshop to bring some of the darkness back in the picture, my camera reflected a lot of light off the paintings surface).

Art in Progress

Here are some pictures of a painting I am currently working on. Some photos are earlier shots, I was trying to take pictures at different stages of the painting. I am not liking the latest stage of the painting as much as I would like, but it has a long way to go so I am not too worried about it.

Ducks Are Cute

Yesterday my friend and I went to the nearby lake to take a walk and some pictures, and I had to post this one because it is so cute!

Earthquake In Ottawa

Well, that was strange! We had an earthquake here in Ottawa, I think it originated around the Ontario-Quebec border, and it registered a 5.5!!

That is so strange for here!!

I had an appointment and I was waiting to take the bus back home, but since I was standing by the side of a busy road I didn't feel anything (since large trucks were going past). If I did feel anything, I probably thought it was a truck. :P

Thankfully everyone is fine, I haven't heard of any injuries. Crazy stuff!!

Gross Temperatures

Today it is pretty warm outside, but tomorrow's forecast is scary:

29oC and feels like 37 degrees Celcius!!! (84.2 degrees F and 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit). Also, the humidity is supposed to be at around 67%. Ugh, not looking forward to it. Usually I wouldn't mind as much but since my boyfriend and I live in an apartment on the 9th floor with no air conditioning, I like to complain about it. ;)

Now to talk about art:

I've been working on some acrylic paintings right now, but they have a long way to go until they are finished. I'll keep you posted on this.

Until then, the picture I posted is of some mushrooms I drew a couple years ago.

Some Art From Before

Well, I figured I would start adding art to this blog (since it's about art) so here we go! These are from the last 2 or so years.

A Welcome Post

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog! This is the first time I will be making an effort to write a good blog, although I can't guarantee the quality of it.

I chose the name Art Evolve, because I am constantly learning and hope that my art moves forward.

In this blog I will be exploring and discussing different aspects of art, from drawing and doodling to painting, music, writing... and my journey exploring it.

I will post art that I am working on, have finished, and interesting tips that I have learned along the way. I am also welcome to constructive criticism with my work, as I am far from perfect.

I will also have posts about favorite and interesting artists that I have great respect for.

I hope that you enjoy your stay at Art Evolve.
