"I'm overwhelmed with art on my desk!"What's worse, today I woke up but just couldn't keep my eyes open. I've napped the whole day away! Now I'm REALLY behind, lol. Hopefully I'll be productive this weekend. Maybe it'll be a Sweet Saturday and I'll magically catch up with everything I've been struggling with this week. Mom's birthday is Monday so that's something wonderful to move toward as the weekend moves along.
This post is being written over the entire Friday, so now I did actually get some of my work done. :o) I'm feeling ever so much better now. So, I completed a painting about opposites, a challenge from Fully Buttered Effect. I loved how it turned out! I'm just giddy with happiness, I'm getting better at seeing shadows and layers of color. It used to be such a struggle but it is something an artist has to train her eye to see. Mostly one just sees things three dimensionally. If you want to translate that to two dimensions, you have to analyze what makes it look three dimensional. See those shadows in all their glory, from the lightest hint to the darkest depth. Also, my mom is helping me understand "where the light comes from" which also helps see those shadows, even if they're hiding, lol. It's making such a difference in my paintings. (Click to Enlarge)

Lisa Gardner called "Catch Me". I'm so psyched to read and review this book. I love mysteries, 99% of the time, it's my genre.
So, now mom has a new 6th gen. silver Nano and I'm gonna buy her some cool new speakers that will keep it charged all while filling the room with tunes. I seem to be lucky this week. Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket... Hmmmm.
