Fantastic day!

Learning how to paint was really fun today!! I was at my instructor’s/co-worker’s house for several house while she explained art theories and paint colors. Since I normally draw with only pencil, painting is an entirely new medium. She had me create a project that dropped paint down the edge of the canvas from the top, and then the side, to make a grid. The squares that were formed the  had to be painted in various shades of the same type of colors. However, the same colors could not be next to each other. What I came up with is a little rough still, but in progress! Check it out! 

   

 

Nail art is therapy!

while my parents were in town, my mom and I went and got our nails done together! It was such a blast! She doesn’t often pamper herself so it was a treat to be able to have her take some time for herself. She deserves it! šŸ™‚

Her nails are the blue ones, and mine are the green! 

   

 

Art lesson!

The last few weeks have been very stressful and draining. The end of a school year is always insane! For whatever reason I always seem to forget that fact. I think that the adults in the building feel “summer fever” the most because they all start to get snippy and start all kinds of drama! I am so ready to get away from it all! 

So to escape the never ending stream of educational drama (lol) I am taking an art lesson tomorrow morning!! I am really looking forward to it and I will be sure to share it with all of you when I am finished! I am going to be learning how to use all the painting supplies I got for my birthday! I can’t wait! 

Pursue your interestsĀ 

For several years, I have wondered if I would be good at painting. In the back of my mind there was always a push towards pursing that hobby but I never thought I had what it took. I have always been very good at drawing with pencil, however, I thought paint wouldn’t work for me. 

Fast forward to last night, I picked up a little paint set that was on sale and I gave painting a shot! I was pleasantly surprised by how it came out! I am glad I took a chance! It may not be amazing, but it is cute!
