Taking some inspiration from Paperfashion, I have started trying fashion illustrating. Not the easiest thing to try after so much abstract painting.

Daily Dose

New top with ruffles. New pallete...i have graduated from paper plates. Work in progress tonight. Feeling really obsessed with my neons and metallics. I have been particularly lazy the past few days. The kitchen is clean, but clothes still waiting to be folded two days later. Very unlike this neat freak.

I should also mention that it was my dad who made me my canvas frames last weekend. I covered and gesso'd myself.

Still trying to delve into watercolor anf ink. Drawn to illustrations lately. I find my pinterest art board booming with inspiration.

For now, i am really proud of hownfar i have come in a year. I am actually mixing colors and using new techniques. Ahem...water plus acrylic makes drippy wash? Who knew.

How was your day?

The boog loved the zoo. It was way to hot. I had to push some little kids out of the way at the splash pad so I could get soaked by a giant water bucket.

Art by a shitty camera

I worked on these two projects tonight. I am super lazy because we went to the zoo today. It was that kind of night where all I wanted to do was paint some pretty things.

Apparently summer breeds the painting side of me.  I have been so engrossed with art again lately.  I want to be better.  I will keep working.

Pictured at the healthiest place on Earth.  D has been begging for "crispies" nonstop since we have eaten there. The hat was too big for her head, so I wore it for her.  

In other news, not quite much going on here for the fourth of July.  I am looking forward to seeing many good friends this weekend at a wedding.  It will be mommy's weekend out, as I have bridal party obligations with all the lady friends.  I still need to shorten my dress for the big day.  It is a tad long.  I am excited to wear it.  A royal blue Calvin Klein eBay find.  It is gorgeous, and makes me look not so fat. 

Happy Fourth!

Sitting here dreaming a little bit today.  May be due to lack of sleep.  I may really be sleep-typing and I may be really dreaming.  I tend to stay up way too late decorating, painting, sewing, eating bad foods.  I put D down later and later, as she gets older, and I need my creative time more and more.  I have just cut out the sleep.

Hoping to get some projects done this weekend.  Not looking forward to "project clean white slipcover", as my husband WAS right, and our two year old did stain my precious white couch.  Boo!

Have a Happy Weekend!  Maybe I will have an RSS feed by Monday?  Trying to figure that one out.
