Work came slowly even with time off. Holiday, reunions and travel kept my pencil, pen and brush from the page. I did do a couple of angels for the holiday, but I'm not wild about either of them. They need work. But I like this girl/woman.
Class is almost over, it has been ravenously eating my time, and I resent it like hell--but you'd never know from these posts:) No not at all....It has sucked, but met some new friends, so get over yourself....

Journal entries are more in my field now. You know, you do some canvases, they sit, and you get antsy. The canvases take up space, remind you that no one has bought your work yet. Yet. Time, I know...

Far from the Twisted Reach

I liked the angle of this, but was not pleased with the skin tone. But she emerged....slowly. We paint ourselves, in this case me, with a lot of collagen.
This angle was quite a struggle, though. Two day week coming up, maybe I'll get more painting in, I hope.

Desert Flower/Let it Rain

Was hating the acrylics and canvas work, and she stopped by. Eric Clapton singing in the background and it comes to together. The art could get better, but the experience doesn't.

It rained and rained and rained, but I listened to music and painted.
"Let it rain, let it rain, let your love rain down on me...."

No painting, no journals, no drawing just homework

I am totally bummed that my work load for school and work has to take precedence over my art. This is a reality for so many creative types like myself, and it's frustrating. I am working to further educate myself in the teaching of art, I am currently teaching art, but I currently have no time to make art. There are worse prediciments I certainly know this, but I'm just so frustrated. I envy those who can wake up, walk into their studios and begin to create. I know someday I'll get there, but it's just so frustrating now. It's not going to end world hunger if I paint, but painting just seems to make my life make sense sometimes. Lunch break over.

Busy weekend hit two canvases. Actually the culmination of two weekends. Feeling more and more at ease with the acrylics. First one is "Back to the Garden" second, "Some things Go On" back to the Petty lyrics.
They speak to me, what can I say? Just layered and layered with paper and glaze with these two, and they came to be. Can't bear to auction them off. When school's over, I'll look for a venue to exhibit. When school's over, God willing....
