Quick Charcoal-Paint Drawing and Website Updates

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I started the day by running a 5K in 22 degree weather (it was fun!) and finished by having a BBQ sandwich, pie, and good company.

Above is a really basic outline painted in, with some charcoal lines still visible. This was originally going to be on a 30" x 24" canvas, but unfortunately when I pulled said canvas out I noticed it was significantly warped. I will have to see if there is a way to fix that or get a replacement. However, I didn't want to wait to start a new painting, so this is on a 20" x 16" piece of ABS mounted on a maple board. I love ABS, but it does take the first layer a long while to dry. Hopefully I will have a full base layer done by tonight, and then I can work on the painting below while I am waiting.

Also, I made some small design changes to my website. Please take a look and let me know what you think! I am always considering getting rid of the red background theme, but I have had it for a while now, and it's my favorite color. In the near future I need to add another demo or two and update a lot of information.

At first I thought, "Um, no, your blog looks exactly the same." Then it occurred to me you said website. Like, not blog.

I like the look of your website. The yellow on the red background is easy to read, and the black panel makes the pictures stand out. If you like the red, keep it?

Fun running in 22 degrees. Hm. I'm afraid we'll have to agree to disagree. In my opinion, the only fun thing to do in 22 degree weather is stay inside wrapped up in a very large blanket. :)
