Today, I wanted to write a blog about some of the nice décor I saw in the Barcelo Maya Palace. When one talks about a resort, it is important to talk about the ambience. It depends on what you consider important.   As for me, I like to look at random decorations and blog about them. The first thing I wanted to talk about are these cute figurines. They are ceramics that are drawn over. Most of them feature faces of maidens in different outfits.   It has quite the peculiar cartoonish style that is quite charming. In the gift...

Today, I wanted to show you my latest watercolor projects. I like to post my portraits in pairs. It gives the folks plenty to look at. The first painting is based on an obscure Frida Kahlo painting. Frida’s self-portraits where all about expressing herself. The originally and symbolism behind her work is the main reason why she became famous.   When I was in Primary School, the art teacher gave us this assignment. She told us to mimic the style of a painter. The first painting she had us mimic was a self-portrait done Frida Kahlo style. She gave us...

I just thought that it was an interesting design for it.   (Disability...

I got around to making a new Hollow Knight parody. In this one, I am making a reference to a famous Arthur Sarnoff painting. It is called Scratched at Dawn. The wife of one of the dogs went to pick up her husband at the bar. He has been playing Pool for far too long. He has work tomorrow. The bulldog’s wife is holding up her umbrella menacingly, while she pulls at his dog ear. The other dogs at the bar are laughing. They find it amusing that such a big bulldog is getting pushed around by a poodle.  ...
