Sort of quickie Self Portrait, 2008

More Photoshop CS2, about 3 hours
Need to get back into the habit of doodling and painting daily, esp. on non-work related (or NDA covered) things.

A quick 2 hour painting, this time of my love.

Android Jones told me painting someone's portrait worked as a damn good pickup line. Have to see if it works for me, too. ;)

My most recently finished piece, for the girly thunderdome on - topic was tarot cards, this is the Ace of Cups.

Ace of Cups - Everything starts with love, so they say, and this is certainly true of the Cups suit. The Ace of Cups is the initial flow of emotion that could become a mighty river is given time and attention. It is the planted - but still dormant - seed of great love and affection in the future, the first stirrings of passion, joy and insight. Often, the Ace of Cups will predict the start of a relationship, one that is full of potential and may eventually lead to true love and happiness. But you must always remember that the Ace can show only potential, not the final result of a situation. If a relationship starts out well, it is up to the two people involved to keep it that way, and improve upon it in any possible manner. The Ace of Cups is not a guarantee of happiness, but a guarantee that you will have the chance to make happiness for yourself if you want to. All of these things associated with emotion and intuition run high when the Ace of Cups makes an appearance.
