Hi!

WIP
Graphite on Bristol Smooth

Things here are going pretty well.  Work has kept me pretty busy, but I found this old drawing that I set aside and I have been working on it on and off.   It feels  pretty great drawing and I found it much easier to leave it out handy and work on it when I can steal a few minutes here and there.

I’m not complaining….A little time is better than nothing!  And today is an on day!

So……I have the Hallmark Channel, homemade chicken ‘n dumplings on the stove and my drawing….what’s to complain about.

So, my question for you is:
How often are you able to work on your art?

Be Well and Happy!

Projects gone Amuk and a Review…

 

untitled

It’s been a while and I really missed blogging, so I thought I would take a few minutes and say “HI!” and let you know what I have been up to.  I hope you are doing great and having a wonderful summer.

Things on my end are plugging right along.  We take our little Sweet Cheeks back to school next Friday.  (kinda depressing…and yes she is 20 years old and I still call her little pet names, lol.  I think secretly she likes it)  I am still loving my job and I adore the people I work with.  My time management is still terrible, but since I am actually posting…I am getting better at it. (YAY ME!)

I haven’t been painting all that much…which makes me antsy.  I mean I have started quite a few paintings and drawings  but I haven’t finished ANY!  Wellll, that isn’t exactly true…I did draw a couple of cherries at work, while I was on floor duty but other than that?  Not so much….I have one painting that it perfectly content to stay in the ugly stages forever and four more with nothing but a set of eyeballs. I won’t even discuss the three foot painting that I have started.  At first I thought that I was just being lazy (and it still may be a little of that) but I believe mostly its just access of the materials and clean up.  I just hated dragging everything out and set up every time I wanted to paint….just to put it all back….then drag it back out….then put it back…See where I’m going with this?

I saw the Masterson’s Sta-Wet Palette  at  Michaels.  The palette looked promising so I purchased it.  The palette was a little over 11.00 (using my coupon).  And boy am I pleased.  I loaded it with acrylic paint on July 9th and it has been 1 month to the day and the paint is still wet!  No bottles of paint everywhere I am not being  intrusive on David’s space, so  I don’t feel too guilty about leaving stuff out until I get the chance to paint again. It has really helped me steal bits of painting sessions when I am able to grab a minute or two. And it is especially helpful with my watering bucket (pictured on right)  It has two wells: one for clean water and one for dirty.  So when I want to paint, I just take the lid off of everything and when I am done I just have to put the lid back on, wash a couple of brushes and that’s it.  And if this doesn’t work?  Its all just laziness, lol

How do you deal with spatial issues of an art space?

Be Well and Happy!
