Daily Face: June 24 Student Portrait

Well no amazing art happening here today, but I did do this portrait. My husband and I are planning a brief getaway with no children, so I don't know if I will have any more portraits for a few days. I hope that while I'm on vacation I will put ink to paper.

Daily Face: June 23 Student Portrait

Yeah, I think I'm back on the rode to consistency. However I would like to start painting again and drawing more than portraits.

Daily Face: June 22

Today I did not accomplish all that I wish. But I spent time just being with my husband, which is never a waste of time. We are best friends. It's nearing the end of the day and I finally made myself come to my office to draw my daily face.

What's Blooming in My Garden?

 My plans for my greenhouse have not come into reality yet, but I still have hopes and dreams. I love to see my beautiful flowers blooming, they filled my heart with gladness. I have also been harvesting my fruits and vegetables. However something has eaten all of my kale. Once it was large enough to start eating I would go out and get some to put in our daily nutribullet juice drink. I guess it was ready for the critters too because they ate all of it. I guess I need to find a natural deterrent to keep them off.

Daily Face: Student Portraits May 26th, 27th & 28th

My husband asked me if my May 26th student portrait drawing was a girl or boy? It's a boy having a bad hair day. It is as though he picked his hair out without a mirror present. I'm sure everyone has had a bad hair day student photo. My mom had my hair looking beautiful for picture day. I missed the school bus and walked to school. Of course it began to rain before I made it to school. I tried to fix my hair but to no avail my cute little shirley-temple curls were gone. The Photographer, Snap! Photo. Everyone laugh at my school picture when we got them back. As  a matter of fact I still have it.

Sketchbook Fabriano: No longer a timed challenge

When life hits you some battles you can let go. I decided that it is not profitable for me to keep a time challenge on my Sketchbook Fabriano Gray-scale; I'm just going to go with the flow and focus on my real life challenges. So this is what I did today.

 Playing catch-up with my student portraits I'm 2 weeks behind.

No Drawings or Reading: Unexpected Life Interruptions

I'm sure in everyone's life at some point in time you have a life interruption were you only function at minimal capacity. Carrying out your daily routine of work and home. That's what happen to me. I'd made plans, expected to complete challenges for myself then boom! So I'm getting myself back together. Here are a few student portraits to try to catch back up with my daily face drawings. Although school is out here, I planned to keep drawing them.

Sketchbook Fabriano Challenge #7 in Gray-scale

As usual you have great plans but life throws you a curve ball. I got off track because of life. I'm praying for God's mercy to see me through.
So I have to regroup and hopefully finish this challenge before June 30th.
Sometimes when you fall you have to get up and keep trying.

Daily Face: May 7th

I'm not being responsible, I have so many things that I'm suppose to be doing at home, but I just want to enjoy myself. I know the Procrastination Monster will bite me later.

Daily Face: May 6th & Fabriano Challenge

A very uneventful day. Had a great morning run, work was the usual. I was so excited about adding another illustration in my Fabriano Sketchbook Gray-scale challenge and it came out hideous. I really don't like it. I tried to fix it but to no avail it does not speak to me. Then I had the dilemma of, do I really want to show something I don't like? Finally I decided to show it anyway. Hopefully it will make me become a better artist. I actually have a blog were I show my unwanted art called Fourborne Days of Art.

My May Challenge: Fabriano Sketchbook

Fabriano Sketchbook
I woke up this morning and decided to challenge myself. I have this sketchbook I purchased from Blick Art Supply its a Fabriano Sketchbook made in Italy. It has 40 pages. My challenge is to complete 35 pages by the end of May. Let me add this disclaimer: I am not good with challenges. However this will be the first challenge that I put on my blog that is not from someone else. Also I only plan on using my Tombo Dual Brush Pens in Gray-scale Palette to color all illustrations. This is my first drawing

Daily Face: May 5th

Nothing much to say. Another full day at work.

Daily Face: May 1st & 4th

As usual things were so busy that I was not able to post my current student portraits. These two portraits were requested by the students. When they come into my office and see my daily portraits they ask me to draw a picture of them also.

 Monday May 4th, you can tell that the school year is almost over, the children are very restless.

Sunday Sketchbook and Notes
Thanking God for all of his wonderful mercies he has show us. It was a good day. I like to keep my Sunday's simple. We went to worship service, came home, ate lunch, took a nap, watered my garden, went back to 6 o'clock service came home, ate a snack, watched a movie. Nothing fast pace or stressful. In my What to Wear illo I got tired of drawing so many small dots, so the dress looks more white than it should.
