I wonder if there would be a quick and
 easy way to move the pics from here to  
my new blog..or the posts...since most are
 before the other one.

ok..well..the library sounds more interesting than that right now.
So that is where I am going.

Not gone

I am getting married on July 28th. I'm not gone..I haven't stoped painting.
I am busy.
I finished my tiny little bag crocheted in thread today...but that will go on another blog.
I did finish a painting this week..but I did it while playing the role of "swap angel" on
A swap angel steps in when someones swap partner flakes on them.
This yound lady wanted a painting of her brother who died in the line of duty as a fireman.
I am giving her the option to see it before it arrives by post, so if she wants to, then I will post it.

Edit..I have added the painting so that Hertrigger can see while waiting for it to arrive...or before it arrives. Larger view by clicking the pic.

changes in commenting.

You no longer have to type the annoying code to comment on my blog...but the comments will be moderated.
I think this is the happy medium.
I myself was getting tired of having to use the codes, and just would rather hand delete spam, than to make my commenter/viewers go through it too.

Studio Friday:sounds

My first entry for Studio Friday

The theme is "sounds"

The sounds I hear in my studio right now are pretty limited. My ears ring and buzz constantly. Only the sound of Arthur ( my kitty) periodically asking to be fed for the 72nd time in four hours makes it through the buzz and ring. I used that background because I dont really interpret sensory input like other people..there is a name for it..which at4:44 AM I am not going to go look up. :P
But anyway, I have to run it all through a filter and sort it out and blah, blah, brain is all swirly and twisty turny like that.
I am now boring even I'll post the pic already, and off to bed...or to paint..or have a bagel.

For those new to my blog from Studio Friday. My name is Rebecca Lopez..and I like to paint..alot.
I like bagels alot too.

By the way...I not only have bees buzzing in my head..I have them in my mail box too.
That's just not good.

Picture is digi-paint, made in painter IX with a wacom tablet.

sugar rush "fat" for illustration friday

My keyboard is giving me in short: This is an older peice that I did to warn myself of the perils of giving into my sweet tooth. A long time diabetic, I have battled against the lure of the evil cake for a years. I didnt take my own warning, and now fight with my own nervous sysem for control of fluid movement, and daily functioning. I am also in pain and shake. With time and my new resolve to take myinsulin and eat hopefully will improve. Until then I am on nuerontin which does help some and hopefully w'll see more participation from me ( in illo friday) both in art and commenting on other illos.
"Cake aint worth it"'s my new motto.
Sorry about the small size and the boarder...long story. Will one day remove that boarder.

Anytime Geisha

I'm going to go ahead and submit this for Illustration Friday ...theme this week being "Glamour". This is about as close to the concept as I will get. Take it from the make up aspect...or from the concept of making ourselves into something else...something more exciting in order to please, and be accepted.
Take it as a painting...I really don't get the concept of Glamour too much...

(I wish I had some sort of meat. I'm very hungry...dinner time. )

The painting is based upon this .

It is titled: "anytime geisha". And it is acrylic on canvas.

long over due

at least in my opinion it is over due.
I now have a store on, where you can purchase my little lovlies printed as posters, on cards, t-shirts, and ...even real US postage stamps.
They have reasonable prices and most items can be customized as to background colors, etc.
The clothing comes in many styles...including night shirts and childrens wear...and ALOT of sizes...we're talking mega "x"'s in front of the "large".
So think of me for the holidays...and make me a part of them.
I am seriously considering Christmas cards..Valentines day cards for keep checking back.
I also am keeping an art journal there, as well as a message board. I would love to exchange ideas on art and design with anyone willing to have an open mind, and enjoy themselves.
Of high interest to me...experimental techniques, especially focusing on mixed media.
Really..I have tried to make my store interesting and fun to the site...
and as I have the delicacy and tact of a baby rhino, I'll also add...


Well, since this page is an art blog..I'll now insert ...some art..lemme rummage a moment...

lookie, there to the left, and

Oh...and here is the link to the wonderful place that is my Zazzle store.

I did this on deviant art and was tagged again here on blogger by Carla
So, here goes.

Tagged again

1 I can wear childrens shoes, pants and PJ bottoms, and skirts.

2 I am wearing false eyelashes right now...and my night shirt.

3 I am almost constantly in pain. I am angry about that.

4 I have decided to eliminate the people from my life who cant give and express love as well as they recieve. I have no qualms about it.

5 I have only one popcicle in the freezer and two children that want it.

6 I just now got an appointment with a gallery to show my work. It will be the first "real" show I have been in if I they like my stuff.

7 I make almost no effort to show my work in real life. I had mistakenly, told the gallery mentioned above that I wasnt interested because they woke me, and I thought it was sales call. I was nagged by friends to call them back. I finally did and was 100 percent honest about what had happened. The lady on the phone thought it was funny...thank GOD. And commended me on my honesty.

8 I am now calling my sisters house as I write. She is also an artist. A financially successful one. My sister looks just like me....but people think she is the oldest. I am.

9 I did not know my parents or sister until I was 6. I had forgotten my parents because I was sent to live with my Grandmother at 18 months. My sis was born shortly after I was sent off to Mexico.

10 I love orange marmelade....and pumpkin flavored anything. My Mom says "punkin" and it drives me crazy. She's teaching my kids to do it.

11 I have been involved with the same man for 16 years. I have felt everything from distaste, hate, distrust, anger,and love, adoration, worship, passion,and soul- bound-to, for him. I am in a love, passion, etc phase right now. He pretty much keeps his feelings for me at a nice and level... obsession. We have done, dreamed, played, and exhausted ourselves in a million projects, schemes, plans, and fancies. I have not once been bored with him or of him. He may at times be the devil but he's my devil, my Master, and my love. He's German...he'll tell me he is German as an explanation for many a thing.
He will come across town to pick up a gallon of milk for me. He holds my hand when I have to go to the emergency room.He buys me diamonds and rubies for no reason. He draws the designs for my next tattoos on my body with a washable marker He writes me naughty stories.
We go to a cabin in the woods to escape and sit on the back porch naked after hottubbing...and talk for hours. He opens all packages, cans and bottles for me, while I am in his company. I sometimes am grateful and sometimes it makes me want to smack him.
He is more than 30 years my senior...and I rarely notice.
He grew a beard for me.
He helped me pick out the false eyelashes I mentioned in number 2
He tells everyone that I am the "boss", but when he puts his foot down...that's pretty much that.
I would rip to shreds anyone that ever harmed him. So would he...he is a very large man.
His name is Bill.

12 I am going tonight to try on a fabric template/pattern for a leather skirt that is being made for me.

13 I intensely hate day after day after day of sunshine. It gives me a headache.

14 I have quite an exhibitionist streak in me.

15 I had another "Bill" in my life once. He was a greyhound. He was named that when he was working at the track. Best damn dog I ever had.

16 I lost my Dad to lung cancer June 2004. It changed who I am as a person. It was a life tragedy unlike any I have ever experienced. I was very close to my Father. He was an exceptional man. He kicked heroin, put himself through college and help countless people become clean and sober in his life. He was an exceptional artist and scientist.

17 I have 6 tattoos. On each leg there is a large one, a fairly large one on my left forearm and hand, a band on my right forearm, a small heart above my right breast, and a large tattoo on my neck and shoulder area. They are mostly flowers, vines and some hummingbirds....except for the heart. They can be seen here. ...
I plan on getting more.

18 I am pierced. And they arent all on my face....I find it very...stimulating as well as decorative.

19 People often say I live a fairy tale life...because I have unbelievable good luck. I also have unbelievable bad luck...all a matter of...luck, I guess.

20 I am a very sexual and kinky person.

21 I dont know who to tag...I'll come up with it eventually.

Self -posted for illustrationfriday

Self..I grieve, with all depth, I mourne for what and who once was, and what never was.
I mourne for all the "hims", it seems.

-My lover
-My Father
-My "should be" lover
-My comforter

Perhaps they died. Perhaps I never allowed them to be.

I grieve for myself. And I, myself, am grief.

( older drawing...done when near the time my Dad died of lung cancer...but the loss felt ranges far and wide in my inner ladscape..and applies to so much, and so many others. )

( I have a hell of alot more tattoos then I did at that time. This was "tattoo summer" for me.)

I want to thank someone, who means more than words could ever convey, for suggesting this pic for this theme. I was a bit stumped.
