Whenever there’s an unusually cold/snowy day: “HURR HURR HOW BOUT THAT GLOBAL WARMING”

Idiots.

Top photo was yesterday morning, bottom photo is this morning. My bush was defeated by the snow. I have a nice view of the street now though…

(and it’ll all melt by the end of the week and we won’t get any more snow till January, probably…)

We got a HUGE dump of snow last night. This is even after a lot of it melted. We only have two seasons here: construction, and snow.

Aw man Mads Mikkelsen is gonna be at the Edmonton Expo… That’d be cool to go, but $$$ and it’s a four hour drive with a six month old baby… but Mads Mikkelsen…

Canada is too bloody big. The fact that in Europe you can drive for 45 minutes and be in another country is something I can’t even wrap my brain around. I can drive for six hours and still be in the same province.

Mads why don’t you come to our expo? Calgary is cooler than Edmonton!

Oooh how fascinating. Now Painter has decided it likes to crash periodically when I use the magic wand. This makes painting more fun and interesting.

I swear to god I will kick this buggy program to the curb as soon as Photoshop can do all the effects and brushes that I want…

So if anyone is interested, I have repainted/retouched my Molly Hooper piece at a much higher resolution, and it is now available at print sizes all the way up to 33x42”! (lesson learned-always work at a much higher res than you think you’ll need) So head on over to my redbubble account.
Now, I have made some small changes. Most noticeably, I flipped the background gradient so the blue is at the top instead of the bottom. I think it looks better this way. If anyone is really not liking this and wanted a copy of the old one instead, send me a note and I will put the old one back up on my redbubble as well. (but it won’t be available as a supersize print)

Odyssey II Project - Chapter 8 - Wanderer Through Space
Deviantart had a collaborative contest / project thing with Clive Barker a couple years ago. Clive started a story prompt, and everyone continued the story and made illustrations for it one chapter at a time.
This was my entry for ch 8. Acrylic ink. This is a take off of the classic romantic painting Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog.
Prints available here or redbubble, if you have a preference.

In Painter, why is there always a small “dead” area in my picture that the magic wand will never work in? Like, it literally will not work, it will not select any pixels from this area. Every picture. I don’t understand. If anyone knows what the hell is going on, send me a note about it. I’m using Painter 11.

Ah it sucks when you get ideas for what you want to work on next while you’re still working on something else… I can only art so fast, brain, come on…
