I've begun porcelain painting this past year and I absolutely love it!
These are my favorite pieces I've done.
|Music and Roses tarte plate|
|Cranes decorative plate|
Other than painting, I do some drawing. Nothing too big and always in a black book I have, but I like them. It keeps me entertained.
I'll share a few from this year with you. No harsh criticisms, please. I look at the drawings as more of a study in materials and form. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. Most of what I draw is from life or a still. But, well, you'll see.
|This is a stuffed animal dog, named Biscuit, who belongs to two sweet twin girls|
(grandchildren of my dear friends here). They had asked me to draw him.
So I did. They only gave me 10 minutes hence why it's not properly shaded.
"Cat in a tree"
|This is a study in charcoal and colored charcoal. Lucky for me, the cat outside |
was adorable and decided to be a nice model..for 15 minutes.
|And this, well, it's entirely from my own mind. I was craving Chinese steamed |
pork buns that night. It's amazing what happens when you get cravings...
And this one's the newest. I call it, "Bedtime Stories".
|This is based off a still from Jane Austen's "Northanger Abbey", the film from 2007. I changed a few things but the idea is the same.|
And, oh yeah, I'm working on a new writing piece and will be joining a writer's group soon. So very excited about this.
So yep. That's what I do in my spare time. Mom, now you know.
(It's always scary sharing art online, so I'm just going to trust that all goes okay.)
Thanks for reading!
Until next time,
