Pastel Techniques #1
Before I wrecked this with some badly sprayed fixatif (aka hairspray) I was pleased with the sky.  This is my first try using soft pastel for more than playing at sloppy sunsets so this is encouraging.  I think i’ll focus on this medium for awhile.

Roadside Discoveries #1

This may be the beginning of a series.

life at 17 is remembered more fondly by you than me.   the past is usually best left in the past. 

As an artist is it possible to be self reflective and find happiness and achievement.  Do artists have to be depressed to create?  Why is sadness more beautiful than joy?  Dysfunction more interesting than stability?

If these are truths, what is wrong with us?

I am happier than I have ever been and never want to go back to where sadness was suffocating me in all aspects of my life.  I wasn’t creating, unless my own empty isolated island counts. 

If facebook is for braggers and twitter for complainers then tumblr has to be for the depressed and anxious.  This is a really sad place. 

this is a quick example i put together tonight for an art project for grade 7 and 8.  i think with a little care and creativity this project will go well.  i used white crayon in the white areas but i don’t think its necessary.

snowflakes, watercolor and pages

I’ve been experimenting again.  i don’t think it all works but i do enjoy the snowflakes.  from this experimentation however i developed another picture i think i do like.

edit:yes those really are my toes :)

questioning my resolution

SO… looking at how much I have accomplished towards my New Year Resolution I am worried that filling my many journals may be impossible.  I am not giving up it just may take me longer than 1 year even working at it everyday (I have).

My set backs have included:

1. discovering Wreck This Journal

2. discovering junk journals
