SOOO, as you’ll see in my previous post¬†I have a long standing fear of face drawing and painting.¬† Well, recently I started a grid project to help me get over this fear.¬† It’s turning out actually quite well and curing my fear of faces!¬† the grid system works great to get you off your feet and flying!¬† Here are the results!

Back from Vacay and school starts soon!!!!

Well, we’re back from Vacay¬†………..and here’s a few more sketches from my journal during vacay¬†time.¬†¬†I focused on faces because I’ll admit they are a weakness for me but mostly because that’s¬†how I want to start the year with my students.

I am sad when summer is over because the illusion that I am a “full time¬†artist” is shattered¬†and I’m reminded oh so vehemently that I do have another job to go¬†to in order to¬†pay the bills….I’m just very lucky that it’s TEACHING art and keeps me on my toes and allows me to keep working on my own projects in bits and pieces.¬†¬† But still I so enjoy the “illusion” the summer creates and am always left perplexed, anxious and sad when it’s over.¬† Not because I don’t love my job and my amazing students,¬†but it’s that constant reminder that I have yet to make it to where I can survive on my Art alone and that September Stab every year never dulls.¬† But I won’t let it bring me down because I have 250 students waiting to take ART and they WANT to be there…..unlike Math class….so I can’t and won’t let them down….I’ve done over thirty¬†pieces this summer and now I have 250¬†“MASTERPieces” waiting for me all with a face and a name.¬† Let me serve them well.

My husband and I also made a valiant attempt at getting all my art off the floor and out of the garage so we got it all hung in my studio and ready for showtime in October.
