a drawing or painting a week. :)

So, recently I kind of got into the Midori craze. Been looking for a good sketchbook and thought using a Midori was the best idea because you can change the notebooks regularly and just use the cover over and over again with different inserts. Plus it fits great in my purse. I'm going to try to sketch something regularly in this Notebook. I made watercolor notebooks and mixed media inserts for this. Can't wait to start :)

Heyyy! It's been awhile that I've actually focused on the whole art blog thing. I've been painting a lot recently, jumping from one to another. I lost my job a few days ago. Well, I didn't 'lose' my job, I was layed off because the store closed. That's just greaaaaatttt, right? Note the sarcasm. But this is a good thing. It gives me a chance to focus on my work and technique. Also, I was slacking off in school and now I have all the time in the world to study. I'll be posting some abstract art I've been working on recently. 
On Saturday, it was my 25th birthday. I celebrated with my boyfriend and a few close friends and family. I always thought that my big 25 was going to be celebrated in some huge way. But no. I just painted in the morning and I couldn't have been happier. My mother gave me a laminating machine for my birthday. Awesome, right? At least I think so.  I've been getting into the art journaling and planner craze. My boyfriend got me a pikachu plush toy and some beautiful yellow daffodils. I'm pretty grateful that he's the kind of guy that would buy me flowers just because it's Tuesday :)

getting the oil paint out again,

To be honest, I've been going through some kind of a rut with painting. I need some originality. I kind of want more realism and more definition in my portraits. My arm isn't working I guess xD. I need to look harder and plan ahead the colors of the shadows. Maybe even another angle of the face. That would be a nice change =]
