Just read an amazing article that mentioned how color can affect your productivity by Talor Casti @thecoppergirl on @mashable. Even if you may have a favorite color, the effect of being around certain colors are universal. I’m putting together an experiment to try this week with my peeps on my email list. Come try it with us. It’s easy and fun. Sign up for the email list at leahsmithson.com (the link is in the profile)

What’s In a Name? Underpainting + The Countdown

Some have been wanting to see ‘behind the scenes’ of some of the paintings I’ve been working on. Here’s the sketch and underpainting of one of the pieces I’m currently working on getting ready for the upcoming show July 25 – 27, 2014.

I’m depicting an Ishan woman as she’s leapt into part of the atmosphere where the birds usually fly. She never revealed her name, so I have to give her one in this portrait. What do you all think a good name would be?

Oh, and this is Day 13 before the official Launch of Wearable Art That Restores Knowledge of a Forgotten Species Kickstarter.
