Wooly Buns

Here's a sampling of some of the supplies I just purchased for my next 3D project with fox and bunny.
What can it be??

My First gif

I just spent the past hour and a half trying to teach myself to make a GIF in Photoshop CS6.  
It probably would have been easier if I didn't have a tragic disease that prevents me from reading directions all the way through before going back and messing with the project a dozen times.
I emerge triumphant!

Fox & Bunny Color Breakdown

I just cranked out a color breakdown for both fox and bunny, because I will need to order dyed wools for a special three-dimensional project for these little guys...

He was Ready to Follow

We are all carrying loads. 
Nothing is so exhausting as someone coming to you with problems and having to tell them,
“My life is a mess right now, too.”  
But His strength is made perfect in our weakness, and when I am my most waterlogged, I’m most peaceful.  
All I can do is heave my bruised body up off the ground to ease your broken bones---I may be black and blue but I will take you to light and healing.

Phillipians 4:6 To not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving make your requests known to God.

Two More and Out the Door

My little brother, Fletcher, is turning 16 next week.  
As usual, my gifts are artistic favors. 
This year I made him a hip invite that is totally reflective of his noisy retro style.

Today has been a difficult day, but my love dropped this little beauty in my spotify inbox this morning. The sounds that keened from my speakers pierced my tired heart with a ray of sunlight.
I'm on my second listen now, and so far my favorite lines I've caught have been:
"Your strength just makes me feel less strong"--Lover's Eyes
"Paint my spirit gold"--I Will Wait
"But love the one you hold/And I'll be your goal/To have and to hold/A lover of the light."--Lover of the Light
"And I will love with urgency, not with haste."--Not With Haste

Rise-N-Dine with the Ace Gang

I'm not a hearty breakfast food person--I'm a coffee or tea with a hunk of biscotti, granola or scone kind of gal.  
I have dreamt about the fantastical Polish Omlette that I gobbled up earlier this summer at Atlanta's Rise-N-Dine.
I was able to return with my nearest and dearest, the Ace Gang, Sunday after church.  
We whiled away the afternoon catching up and inhaling our food.
I got my polish omlette once again, with every intention of photographing the pierogie-stuffed beauty, but my tummy beat my camera to the punch.
I'll just have to go back.
The food is all local, delicious, and interesting.
Also, the decor is amazing: light, bright and country shabby chic.

Una pieza más - Marian Ruzzi y Sr. Amable

I am such a big fan of illustration and animation, and this video encapsulates all that I love about them.
I found this incredible video on illustrator Julianna Sweeney's blog.  
Gorgeous, dark, sweet and strange are the illustrations by Luis Safa (Caricrimen) and the music by Mexican artists Marian Ruzzi and Sr. Amable.
Plus it is in spanish, which is just fun!

The Fox & the Bunny White Board Stop Motion

This is my first stop motion project for my advanced graphics class.
I made it using my own ink and watercolor illustrations.

New Agenda

I decorated it with my favorite washi tape!

Project in Progress: Lady with an Ermine

I am finally taking oil painting this semester! 
 I'm in a wee class of 5, and our first assignment has been to copy a Michelangelo or da Vinci.  
Tall order.
I've been working on this little painting, Lady with an Ermine, by Leonardo da Vinci, for 3 two-and-a-half hour class periods now.  I've been easing into it.
Believe it or not, I'm still working on the underpainting.
Her expression isn't right yet, but I have a tendency to work intensely in areas for long periods of time, and then hopping around, neglecting others, and this alters the likeness.  
It won't be until the very end that I will see what she truly looks like.
