It is now Monday evening and I HAVE to finish "whimsical painting" two chairs for a silent auction that is in two weeks. I have given myself until Thanksgiving to finish them, that is exactly 3 days away. Pictures coming very soon!
Another thing I've been working on is transferring all of my pictures onto a new computer (also putting them on a disk because I'm old school) because my old computer is finally dying. I have also bought the latest version of Adobe Photoshop Elements and I'm having a blast altering my photos.
I think creative Kim is coming back (thanks mom for encouraging me!) so look for updates on my latest art dolls coming soon.
- I started this blog on November 23, 2009 just because I wanted to chronicle my artistic endeavors and see "in black and white" how many different directions my artistic brain would go. I challenged myself to try different mediums and that this blog could be a platform to post my achievements and failures. I cannot believe it's been six years now! Over the past 6 years I've learned a few things from writing this blog:1. Art is in my blood, I will always be thinking or doing something artistic2. About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea3. I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while4. It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at onceWith all of this said I now consider myself a mixed media artist because I a lot of my talents cross over into other projects I've already started; It's a great life and I wouldn't change anything about my crazy artistic brain!
