Puffin Project.

Puffin Project.  

Long story, that I wont get all into right now.  However, I'll promise to come back to it and explain actually what the idea is/was. 

None the less, it required a few paintings of puffins that I needed to spawn off.  I did one a while back and ended up painting over it.  I even painted over it upside down!  It was absolutely horrible, and no, you nor anyone else will ever see it.  I won't even tell you what I painted over it, just to make sure someone would have a hard time finding it via blacklight.  I was just not 100% into the project, and I needed to be to produce better work.  I learned that being at 90%, is a dangerous thing.  You either have to CARE, or not at all.  That middle ground forces the brush to do odd things. 

So, I stopped caring.  Painting a few paintings/studies that I enjoyed.  Very quick.  

The one on the left a friend of mine (Nick, I'm talking about you) and I painted on drunken night when he told me he had a hard time with paint.  I told him that theres nothing to it, and that I'd spin up a session with him.  He painted the majority of it and I stood over his shoulder helping when he had questions with color, strokes, etc.  I always felt like I might be a decent teacher because it runs in my family, but this session confirmed it.

This was one that I did for my dad.  It was about a 2 hour painting (and thats being generous).  He remembered the project a while back, and just wanted one for his man cave.  Done and done.
