We have internet service again, and my computer at work is working again - so whatever evil force was at work there, it seems to have calmed down (knock on wood). So here are some catch up items.....lucky you!!
Last weeks portrait drawing class. I only stayed for an hour as I had to leave very early the next day for Florida. But I got two drawings in - and I really liked using white pastel to add the light highlights. It helped to define things and shapes for me. And no, the poor woman is not crossed eyed - she just looks that way here.
While I like glasses as they are good to define areas and give dimension - I hate drawing eyes behind glasses as evidenced by the drawing two down.
As I've been decluttering, I found my high school notebook with this folded drawing. Cracked me up - even then I didn't like drawing eyes!!
So yes...de-cluttering. A random comment from DH had me swooping down on all sorts of crap in my house and making give away piles in every room. This is a pile of books and other items that is/are going to Goodwill for others to enjoy.
And as for clothes - well - I've done about 3 big bags to goodwill. Good stuff mostly but either I have too much or I don't need it or it was a fashion mistake to begin with. OR...it doesn't fit and I'm not going to keep stuff saying "maybe it'll fit next year". Years ago I bought this 1940's lounging dress, and while it fit at the time, it was always tight. Well now it's more than just tight - and I've decided to get the wrinkles out and sell it on either ebay or etsy. I've always loved it but it's ridiculous to hang onto something that needs quite a bit less in the avoirdupois area.
I think it's handmade and it's blue with pink butterflies. It's lovely really......(big sigh)
On another note, I've been working on the Miss Em comics and my goal is to have 48 pages worth of stuff by the beginning of the year. Right now I have 24 finished pages and 10 in the works. If I don't get 48 - it's OK, but I'd like to have more than 35 at the least. Lot's of work here, let me tell you!!!
It's nice to have internet again. I've missed this....
