From Doodle to Done: “I’m of Two Minds About It”

I'm of Two Minds About It
Final Print: “I’m of Two Minds About It” by Woodsherry Anderson

This print is part of the exhibit:  BO GO – a show of Diptychs at Electric Moustache Gallery (at Krankies in W-S). Artist reception and opening tonight, Monday July 9th, from 7-9 pm. Stop by if you can for some coffee or a drink and some great art. A quick tour of creating this print after the jump.

** WELL FOLKS I just lost this entire post when WordPress crashed and dumped out everything I just wrote, including all kinds of nice inner-workings-of-my-brain type stuff… so you’ll have to be content with the following photos and captions because that’s all I can manage through my clenched teeth. Maybe it’s a sign that I should’t let you see behind the curtain. 🙂 Or something. Sheesh.**
