I had to do just that one last thing..... Now it's turned into one of those things that will bug me because I can't take it back. Sometimes you've just gotta know when to say when, ya know?
My coloured pencils are nibs now. I guess I'll have to find a picture that will make use of some of my other colours to give them fair play.
The painting was bowed when I photographed it for the blog, so the wall behind looks a little bent. It's not in the actual painting.
I went to get an estimate on having it framed. After the estimate I decided it looked lovelier hidden away in my portfolio.
I told Mr. P. this morning, "Well, been there done that, what hobby should I try next?" That didn't go over well, and apparently I will be doing more paintings.
I've contacted one potential model, and am hoping that maybe out of the kindness of her heart that Adventurer will send some more pictures of beautiful children my way. I have one of a little angel that she gave me that will soon be in the works.
Here's my newest drawing that I'm working on. Also of someone in my neighbourhood. By about the 30th hour of looking at the same kid I'm really sick of looking at them! I can capture a better, darker picture of this one when it's done.
Ah, yes....as a matter of fact they were jumping off the roof! I was not pleased. 4 of 4 was told by Mr. P that she could join her sisters when she turned 6. I explained that that would indeed be a terrible mistake since she turns 6 in the heat of the summer. Maybe if we're lucky we'll have this much snow again next year for her;-)
I've got a couple of stories, but I'll save them for later. A dark and cranky little fellow is staring at me wondering why his little legs aren't bounding through those snow banks. He likes to paint them yellow.
