I'm learning Adobe Animate this week. Crash course...but I am surrounded by wonderful people so there is hope yet! I started off an oil painting which I look forward to finishing traditionally but it was good enough to work as a baseline to paint digitally for this class. I will try to get the original scan of the oil painting that I had started at another time and hopefully figure out how to embed a video into this thing. Here's to hoping for a successful 6 hours put into this today.
This past week, I have been struggling with not only my right arm but my left arm. I have been the sight of sore eyes at PT with both my arms packed with ice. Funny actually that here I am now with two bum arms. HOWEVER, I am extremely pleased with the progress my surgery arm (right). The pain I get now are minor in comparison to what it was like a year and half ago. Now its pings and strain from apparent overuse. This weekend, I have been trying to get catch up with my assignments for my MFA and although it has been a challenge. The work has been welcoming. So, with this painting, I was working in very short increments and putting the paint brush down and taking a rest every few minutes. As you can see from the photos above, The collage of 4 pictures, shows the transition from start to midway. The last photo is the finished product. Or at least....till I get the approval of my thesis adviser should there need to be any changes done. Loved working this piece.
