New Website!

Alright. So I'm terrible at keeping up a blog. Well, so the most recent news is that I had/currently sort of have my senior show up. It was definitely a lot of work but I actually had some fun doing it. Now I'll be working on the rest of stuff I need to do for life after graduation. One of the things I made sort of for my show but also just because I need it is a website. Well, I had a lot of help but I've got a little bit of art up, and  in the next couple of weeks I'll be working on getting more and better photos of my work up. So, if anyone reads it and would like to check out some of the work that I have been neglecting to put here, you can look at it there. Maybe if I get a lot of questions or things I'll answer them on here. I may also try to keep this for in progress photos and a bit more talking about my art. Anyway!

Here's the link: jordan-taylor.me

So go check it out! And definitely go ahead and Like or +1 it. If you have any questions you can send them through there or ask them here. :)

More artz. I do have a couple of in process photos of this one but they're on my cell phone and I'm too lazy to get them. I personally am pretty happy with where this one is at but my professor disagrees so I may end up working on it some more.

I realized a while ago that I put up the beginning to this painting but I never put up the finished piece so here it is.

I accidentally cropped some of and I'm too lazy right now to take a better photo and fix it, especially since I don't particularly like this painting.

I'm not going to write much, just posting up a small recently finished piece. I just built a stretcher for a 4' x 6' canvas, and I have a 3' x 4' board and a couple more small ones so I'm going to have a few things going at a time.

I think this one started as a map of Dublin, Ireland but I can't remember for sure. If so I find it somewhat funny that the one of Florence started on red/pink and Dublin started on green. Not intentional though.

I am so not made for blogging it would seem. I have one mostly maybe finished painting that I will put up and the beginning of a new one that I'll put up as well, though it isn't very far. I don't think I'm super happy with either of them, especially not the second one but I'm much farther on it than this photo I'm going to put up. Also, these are both taken with my cell phone. Tomorrow I'll try to remember my camera when I go to the studio so I can take some better photos.

I actually thought I had a better photo than this but it was an earlier one. So after this one (the first official painting of the semester! Yay!), my professor suggested I look at some people and use their color palettes instead of trying to come up with my own. That's how I ended up on the one I'm on, and might be why I hate it so much.

Haha! I don't even know if there's a point in putting this up right now since it's so early on. Oh well, it's up. I much farther along in this painting and I'll probably put up another progress shot tomorrow. Hopefully I'll hate it a little less tomorrow.

Epic blog upkeep fail. How long has it been since I've posted? A couple of weeks I think. I don't have anything very exciting to post today, just thought I'd let the internet know that I didn't fall of the face of the Earth or anything. Classes started this past Wednesday so very soon I should be posting some newer and slightly more exciting things. However, right now all I've got is some photos of the studio.

A sad old paint covered computer on a sad old paint covered  table.

My area! Fully equipped with computer, microwave, and mini fridge (shared with others of course).
The rest of the studio, well half of the rest of the studio. There's even plants!

I really am running out of things to put up here right now, which really is just a sign that I need to do more art. Well in a couple of weeks classes start and I won't be able to avoid it. For the time being here is another piece from the abstract drawing class I took this summer.

This is gouache on paper.

And on a completely different note, have you ever come across a ridiculous captcha? Well I have recently.

How are you ever supposed to type that? Would "x/l(x" work? Anyway, I came across that while making accounts on a bunch of art sites to try and promote some of my paintings. I have seen more ridiculous captchas but this is the worst that I personally have gotten.
