This week I missed posting my Wednesday question! I know you're dissapointed right? Of course you are *wink*. So instead I'm doing five things on a Friday, and posting an older work because I have not gotten much painting done this week. Sometimes life is overwhelming, and that's ok. Because without those experiences my work would be flat, lifeless. So here's to all the play-doh, Wii games, stories, and sippy cups for this week! Huzzah!! I love my little family :) And since I like to get you guys to join in on the fun I'm asking you to participate with me! You don't have to tell me five, you can do as many or as few as you want. Just tell me what's new with you. Here we go.
I now have a website! I'm pretty excited, it's the first one I've ever had. So if you want to go check it out and tell me what you think it's at crystalcookart.com . It's a work in progress, but still, coolness!
My son had kindergarten round up this week, and I'm trying not to feel sad that this fall he won't be my little shadow during the day. At least for three hours. It's hard once they start school, it's never quite the same as when they were home with you all day. *sigh*
I watched Avatar with my husband for the first time, and I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. Actually I really liked it. I mean action, adventure, a love story between two 10 feet tall blue people who are still strangely beautiful. What's not to like? :)
I'm working on a new portrait of one of my boys (see below). And I am very excited about the light in this one. There are some lovely pink, violet and yellows I'm hoping to capture. This is the one I'm going to use as a demonstration for that local art organization in a few weeks.
The song "This is War" by 30 Seconds to Mars has been replaced (I know, sad huh?) by my current two faves which are: "Make This Go On Forever" by Snow Patrol, and "Feeling Good" by Muse. If there's no 30 Seconds to Mars on my ipod there has to be Muse. It's just a given people!
And now I must go friends, apparently I have been spending too much time on this blog post and not enough on fixing snacks. I feel a little hand tugging on my pant leg. Have a happy weekend!
