The Ball is Rolling

So today,

I'm in the studio catching up on my senior show work. I started a new painting along side of one I'm currently working on. I've taken some images of things I'm doing and wanted to talk about them. 

I have three large paintings I'm working on for the Senior exhibition in April. In the image below you can see a blue painting peaking through the two that are just under-paintings. That piece is more worked and is sitting so I can come back to it with fresh eyes. You can see a better view of it to the right

[In the image below that] The the red painting on the right is a photo-collage (When I take multiple images of the same subject and put them together in photoshop) of a building I took some photographs of. I've started it by putting down varying thickness of oil paint mixed with Gamsol, which is a paint thinner. The painting on the left of that is a painting of a simple collage I made. 

I've included a small sketch of my boyfriend Cody from me sketchbook. I'm trying to do more little sketches to keep my hand busy when I'm not doing much artwork. 

What my studio looks like right now, I hang everything on the walls to keep them off the floor. I'm a messy painter so I have to cover some artwork with brown paper. You can see that in the back behind the red house painting.
