How did that happen?! I swear I was still writing August on things when suddenly it was October! What even happened in September?!
::consults Facebook wall::
oh. right. September was full of crazy – good and bad – and it flew by. Everyone was back in school – here is photo proof:
And then there was the headache week from hell that ended with me getting shots in my butt on Day 6. Day 6!! damn. But to spin a positive from all that pain, I did create a couple more pieces of ‘migraine’ art.
A Day 4 painting:
And a Day 6 photo became a drypoint that I’m still working on:
Of course that was the end of my 29Faces run. That week really wiped me out!
The next weekend had me and Kyle in San Mateo for the 2-day tournament that starts the fall volleyball season. Always fun. And then Ericfish and John came to visit! And that was more fun! And then, just like that, is was October. so yeah. September was a blur and it’s already the 11th! The Halloween decorations have been up for over a week, and its time to think costumes. Someone wants to be a bat.*
* with over 2 weeks to go, this will most likely change. I think she should goes as Pig-Pen. 1st grade Erin is the dirtiest Erin yet. And did you hear her snort?
wow. August kinda rocked! Between an really fun August project for True Free Spirit and the Visual Quest course work, I finished 3 canvases and several paintings in my journal!
This is the TFS “primitive” painting that is also my donation for the ‘2013 Artists For The Cure‘ fundraiser.
Mixed-media on 10″x10″ wood panel.
And then a background I had started for another “primitive” TFS painting took a Visual Quest of its own and became this:
Acrylic on 11″x14″ wood panel.
A couple pages from the art journal:
And finally my finished painting for Visual Quest!
Mixed-media on 30″x30″ wood panel. Sorry the image quality is so poor. If only I knew a photographer.
So yeah, a fun month of creative flow! Let’s hope I can keep it going through September.
To help with that (and because I must have bumped my head again) I decided to try the 29 Faces Challenge. Yeah, basically I’m going to attempt to make 29 faces in 30 days. And that could happen. But you are also “supposed” to create a blog post each day with your Face. Well we all know that ain’t gonna happen. Maybe a weekly update. Or Instagram! That’s doable.
Since I didn’t find out about this fun little project until today, I submit the self-portrait sketch I did on Friday. This is for the first project in my Printmaking class.
28 to go.
