Nothing new

Hi all,
Nothing new posted. We are working on abstracts. I have to draw three more of the tree abstract, but each in a different color. One monochrome, one in complimentary colors and one in analogous colors. I'm almost finished with them. I don't really like them myself, so don't know it I will post them. We'll see.

I could use your help. For my final I have to draw two drawings that when hung side by side look like they belong together, but when hung alone also look like a complete drawing. I can't decide on the subject. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :)

Hi all, I'm back from vacation and catching up my blogg. I've added some new pieces. My midterm has been added. It is one of my favorites so far. I appreciate all of you who have linked my blogg and passed it on. So far no one has told me to stop drawing so will struggle on. I have added an abstract page. I personally don't see the point in abstracts, but it was an assignment and I may not have put my whole heart into it as I was trying to get ready to leave for Vegas when he assigned them and I had to stay up til they were finished so that I would not have to take them with me. I had these horrible visions of sitting in my room drawing instead of being out giving my money to the one armed bandit. Anyway they are here for your enjoyment or disgust.

Take care, Love to all

More about the self portrait

Hi All,

So I've finished my self protrait. An exploration into my looks that I wish never to take again. I get finished with it and am standing back looking at it thinking it makes me look fat, need to loose some weight...those kinds of things when Alex (my son) walks by, glances at it, says "Good Job Mom....looks kind a like you, but your face is much fatter than that." He continues on his way and I feel like smacking him.....teenagers, I totally understand why some animals eat their young.

Anybody who wants to see what I look like, according to me and not my kids, check it out on the charcoals page.

Have a great day, I know I will now that I don't have to stare at myself in the mirror any longer. I will go back to my quick glance in the mornings and be totally happy with that. ;)

Self Protrait

Good Morning World,

So this is the second day of my blogging experience. Hope I don't bore anyone who actually reads this.

My current assignment in class is to do a self portrait. Uggggg....who wants to constantly look at themselves? You begin to see things that you normally try to ignore. Like my face is fatter than I thought, I have more wrinkles and my glasses really don't do anything for my looks. Beginning to second guess my latest haircut too. My lips have gotten a lot thinner than I thought they were. Again I say UGGGGG. I guess I can ignore my age and say I feel much younger than I am, but my face is beginning to tell on me.

Ok enough about my fading looks. Soon I will be done, the drawing will be on here so you can all see what I am talking about and I can go back to thinking I look much thinner and younger than I really do.
