Before I can create a three dimensional figure out of plaster, I have to master the proportions of the human and the plausible gestures and movements. Here I have my planning for this project and a couple ideas for my installment.
As we near the start of the Christmas season, I am becoming more and more excited. Mostly I am eager to volunteer again wrapping gifts with the Canadian Cancer Society! (I always try to coordinate the gift wrap to the ribbon). I am hoping to create a piece this year to convey the beauty and stillness of winter and the warmth of Christmas. Stay updated to how it works it out.
In case you were wondering… I LOVE peonies, particularly pink peonies. I am hoping to incorporate them in to my art, I have yet to do this! Until a few moments ago, I was completely and utterly unaware the variety they come in, so here I have attached a guide. If you like peonies as much as I do you’ll find this quite interesting, otherwise keep scrolling!
There is finally an art supplies store in White Rock! Long lost are the days when needing new paints meant a long drive to the nearest art store. Yesterday however, I seem to have accidentally purchased fluid Acrylic paint, rather than Acrylic paints. This proved to be an experimental event for me. Being that it was the first time I have ever worked with these paints, I experimented with them, mixing and dripping them across my canvas, until I created a pattern of line, which I decided would work well as a background to layer upon. This mistaken purchase resulted in a new piece!
When I find a lull in activity in my life (AKA when I don’t have home work, and I’m not working on art), I will often fill my time with baking. I find baking as a simple way to combine science and creation. Most Importantly, I found the most delectable recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Seriously! I will even make the claim that these cookies are the best I have made. I had to share this tidbit, because I am seriously ecstatic about this. This may be a hyperbole but it seems all I want to do now is make five batches and give cookies to everyone! I can’t exactly upload a cookie on this sight, so attached the recipe.
