Horizon Line // Paseo Update

I went to the Paseo opening Friday night despite rain, coldness, driving my dad around for errands, a quick drop in drop out birthday party and a trip to Urgent Care that day. The crowd was a bit sparse for one of the peak times, the turnout was better on day 2 on Saturday. I had a
very good time. There was someplace else I wanted to go to on Saturday but I'm sure if I went I would've been unwelcome and would have caused trouble if I popped up.
I had real fun on saturday to make up for that.

The amazing experience I wanted to share is when my friend and I were looking through the rooms in the Coronado hall. We went into the last room and a crowd of 10 or so people were surrounded around this one piece. I turned to look to see what they were looking out and it was my artwork!! I was so excited. I tried to walk a distance and I fumbled my camera. By then the crowd dwindled. I managed to take a picture but not with all those people looking all at once. That moment was priceless. I was so happy I wanted to jump and down. It's motivating.

I like to get people to look at my paintings from across the room. That is one my intentions. For you to notice my work across the room and come closer to look at it, But a crowd! Just wow! I want to evoke that emotion more. I infuse a little soul into my work and make my painting speak the loudest in the room.

For my fine art work I use my middle name Prichelle.

Hence K. Prichelle

I was painting up until the submission date. Oil paints dry very slowly naturally. It can take weeks to months to dry at times. When I saw the painting it turned out beautifully. It was still wet when I submitted it. I use walnut oil and that slows your drying time. By adding the cobalt drier it accelerated the drying time. It dried by the end of the week when I saw it. Hooray cobalt drier.

Still went after practically balling my eyes
 out most of the day

Thank you for all your support it gives me hope, confidence, inspiration to go fourth with my next piece in my un-announced series.

Sometimes one can get used to their painting. It is like eating the same lunch everyday. You get tired of it but for someone else when they see or try it for the first time it is a new experience and its delicious. When you release the artwork you are tired of looking at it and think others will see it that same way.

To be honest I invited 6 people to come hang out at different times last year. Either they said no, did not respond or like one friend went on a totally different day I went on a different day. It was made up by one of my friends who is not an artist but was interested in seeing the show.

Speaking of Urgent Care. I was at work Friday and my boss was handing me something I couldn't reach and Baammm!!! This delivery guy swung really hard and it slammed on my left shoulder....where I already have a sprain there.  OM it hurt so bad and I was livid. Because every time I make progress in my recovery I get injured again due to someone's negligence. I got an X-ray and thankfully nothing is broken. Just pain and numbness at parts. It felt like Mortal Kombat 9's x-ray fatality.

My friend M was like did you still want to go to the art show? It's like denying a little kid christmas if their leg is broken, theyd still want to celebrate it.

Now I can show off Horizon Line. I've been painting it off and on for about a month. It is 9x12 and for sale at the Cornoado Hall until Oct. 1 for a low price of $597.

 12 hours was invested.
The under laying wash was a vibrant red. Which helped to create a dramatic effect. I added a lot of texture and paint so I had to wait for it to dry to layer more colors without picking up the under layer.

Generally don't put the palette underneath you for long periods of time.
I do that to mix colors. But you don't want the solvents to be right under
your nose! It makes you sick and cause bad health effects long term.

 I like to walk away and check on what the 
painting looks like from the other side 
of the studio//room to check out if 
it does grab and maintain your attention.


There were some cool light installations out.

I've been re-listening and this would 
make great reinterpreted muisc>artwork. Very Sensual.
This collab is toxic in a good way.
Glad I found these songs in my library.
