So my senior art show is in a couple of weeks. (Yikes!) I've been going through my art and trying to make a list of the things to put in the show. Which kinda made me realize that I don't have a ton of work that I'm super proud of. I mean, I'm generally happy with most of my art, but there aren't a lot of pieces that I am REALLY happy with. And all the art I have is from classes. I've rarely done anything for my own personal enjoyment. How sad! But lately I've been working on a couple of pieces for myself. Nothing fantastic; just a couple of masks that I'm painting. I started a picture last semester and I'm doing it all in stippling (I know, what was I thinking?). But I wanted to try something else that I haven't really done. But my goal is to finish that in time for my senior show. That gives me...roughly 3 weeks. Aaahh! So much closer than I thought. Finish a stippling picture (which is reeeeaaally slow since it's entirely in dots...) and a couple of new masks in 3 weeks. Can I do it? YES! ...we'll see.
I started painting that new mask last week and I go SO HAPPY! I forgot how much I love painting. Which is really a shame. After I graduate, I'm hoping I can try a periodically work on art more often, since I won't have homework hanging over my head for once in my life. The problem is that I get so lazy that whenever I have some free time, I just want to goof around a do nothing. My new goal in life: make art. ALL THE TIME. Haha, okay not ALL the time. But more often than I do now. God gave me a passion for art and I need to use it to the best of my ability.
