Howdy! Boy I sort of fell off the blogging wagon for awhile I was just giddy with no school slacking off :) Actually I lie I haven't been slacking off I have literally been working my buns off I am down 39 pounds now:) Yay me. Gord worked it out and I have been walking around 7 miles a day. Right now I am sick so I have not been exercising the past three days and I hate it.
So one of my favourite blogs to visit is Kal Barteskis http://www.lovelife.typepad.com/ not only is she Canadian she is from Manitoba which holds a special place in my heart because I spent the first 6 years of my life there :) Not only that she is an awesome artist and I love her work. I first discovered her when I went to the INSPIRED event in 2008 and she taught a workshop there she has such a positive spirit about creativity I just love it. Anyway to make a long story short Kal has been doing something called GOventure creative prompts and sharing them with her readers and inviting us to create something using the prompt as inspiration. So I figured I have this new backyard studio and a whole bunch of spare time I should join in :)
Day one's inspiration was GREEN and DIZZY. Now if you know me at all you know I love zombies so that is what came to my mind right away and I settled in to make this silly little painting which cracks me up and makes me smile. I found the saying online somewhere it was a toss up between this and "Zombies love chicks with brains" :) It actually says "Aaarg... that's zombie for I love you" What an awesome way to officially break in the new studio with a zombie painting.
Just a silly little painting :) It's fun to paint for fun and not for grades LOL this would never fly at school.
Ok day 2 prompt was NOT MY TYPE. Which for some reason got me thinking about relationships, which made me think about love and I had these three little wood panels sitting around and so I messed around and came up with this....
Have I mentioned how much I hate taking photos of my work if you have any tips for me that would be awesome because it never looks right in photos. I don't know if you can make it out but it says "All we need is love" ala the Beatles.
What else is new? I am registered for next semester for Intro to Sculpture, Advanced Painting (aka Painting 3), Intro to digital media, and Issues in Contemporary art 2. It's going to be a full load again but I am looking forward to it and I am hoping to apply for some scholarships because my tuition is in the $1600 dollar range and that doesn't include the many supplies I need.
In other news school is almost out for the summer for Adam two more days tomorrow is Beach Day and then half a day Thursday and then on Saturday Adam and I leave for a week vacation with our friends to Osoyoos. I am so frickin excited and so happy they invited us along our vacation prospects are pretty slim this year because of Gords busy work schedule. Josh has opted to stay home he thinks a week away from his mom and brother sounds heavenly, I say poo poo on him :P
Ok I think I have rambled on enough ...oh but wait the most exciting news!!!!! JOSH AND I ARE GOING TO SEE BLINK 182 on July 28th !!!! I am so excited Josh and I like alot of the same music and I introduced him to Blink but by that time they had split up. We got a chance to see Plus 44 in concert which was one of the spin off bands but we are super excited they reunited because we love them and Josh, the drummer of course loves Travis Barker. I can't wait!!!!
Ok now I am done! Tomorrows prompt is POCKET and I already have mine done but no photo yet I will share tomorrow.
