Stressed, yes indeed! I have suddenly realized what my weekend looks like. Yikes!!
l have 3 dozen eggs to hard boil and dye (hoping for some boy help with that), a book to finish, our book club mtg is tonight. The theme, Irish night, although it has nothing to do with the book we are reading, we just love all things Irish and right now Bailey's is sounding pretty good. An art show to attend, the one we prepared for last week, matting and getting hangers put on over a hundred pieces. My father is coming to stay today and my house is looking like a bomb hit it. RPGing at my house, all day Saturday and get ready for Easter dinner, which thankfully is not at my house Sunday. Not to mention the art project that is looming over me. My dining room table has become my easel for 3 weeks now and I'm still not finished. All that and a bit of life thrown in. Normally I'm a fairly calm person, but right now I need a bit of magic. Cleaning fairies and father time would be nice!
Self Portrait: I saw this concept on another blog not long ago and wanted to give it a whirl. I used white crayon to draw myself on white paper, not easy because I couldn't really see what I was drawing. Then I went over it with colored inks, using a paint brush and a bit of water. I like the way it turned out!
I'm sure I could come up with many more S words, but I will end this post with this picture I recently did. I was inspired by a song called, Schiff Ahoi. It is an instrumental song, lasting less than a minute, by a German, somewhat screamo band called, We Butter Our Bread With Butter. I live in a house of teenage boys and so my musical influences have a very wide range.
I don't have a picture of it finished so this is a work in progress picture.
I did this one entirely with Illustrator inks and a quill pen. Except for the colored parts, which I used a paint brush for a smoother look.
Have a super and hopefully unstressful day, filled with some yummy desserts!
