Art Run...

    I feel like Im going through something that needs to be seen through...I cant stop this feeling of wanting to be better at this craft...I just need to improve as well. Ive been bombarding my eyes with images from james jean and audrey kawasaki...( probably my two favorite artist of all time...other than Alphonse Mucha and Monet ). I want to be as good as them so badly...or even showing signs of skills nearly as good as them. Im desperate.
    I had an art supply run and a couple of hours to myself to think and sketch..Every time I have time alone...the moment reminds me that this decision of creating image and colors as a lifestyle and career is one I made whole its honestly one of the only things Im somewhat talented in..Math and sports are definitely out the door..
    Speaking of ankle is taking a small vacation from the exertions of sports activities..I twisted it again in the reaction to stepping onto a piece of glass...-__-  Iam more concernicus about my ankle and the amount of times Ive sprained it..rather than the small piercing wound at the bottom of my foot.
....I have sprained my ankle a total of 5 times now. -__-

...Im attempting a mix media for my next piece...probably watercolor, acrylic, and marker..the piece thats almost complete is not exactly up to my wished standards. ..but its a start from a long hiatus of painting.

Ill be in my basement if anyone needs me. ^___^

..heres the first piece so far..say 40% done.

Hommmmmme finallly...

     Last minute Virginia is always fun. Dania was a freaking handful as usual...its astounding how smart she gets within a few months between visiting her.Also how much of a smart ass she learned to be hehe I wonder where she got it....she's lucky she's cute. Heh.
     My brother and Ate' Fe's new house is pretty awesome... they're asking for a really long painting for their new big living room...I have no clue where to start..but i really want to make them something...they deserve it. New painting...I've been sketching a few ideas lately for the new series..I gotta settle down and scan a few just to put them up..
    Also have been looking in craigslist lately for a more art-related employment status...I found a few..*crosses fingers* hope they bite..
 ...also saw this on and made me laugh a lot.   : D

Late Nite Inspirations . . .

Hello Readers of the first entry...I appreciate you already.
Its funny how all my best inspirations and intentions seem to seep into me into the ungodly hours of the late night. I finally found the internal nudge and push I needed to start this...I realized making one of these "blogs" is almost no different than artists in history did with their personal notebooks journals and sketchbooks...except Im alive and this is intentionally public..
       I started something in the last few weeks...I started doing something for myself and for my personal growth as a potential artist...its been a long moment since I began painting for me again..
Its almost scary...Im on my own in one making their mark in the world should be. I feel like Im just coming out of a coma or waking up from a deep dream. I dreamed of things my hands would create..(my left hand really..)..I woke up.
Having forgotten most of the dreams..Im going to try and find them and put them a whole again.
Wish me luck...its not even funny how much I will need it. *thumbs up*
