This is a work in progress for my virtual sketch date. It won't be finished on time, but this gives an idea what it will look like. This months reference comes from Sharon of Flat Sound of Wooden Clogs. The participants will be posted on Sunday on the sketch date blog. I received an easel at Christmas time, the kind with paints and it folds up and you can carry it around. Well since I have never painted, I kind of ignored it. This week I decided to give it a try, thinking I wouldn't like it. Silly me! I love it! I had to improvise a little, I took the wooden pallet and locked it in like a canvas. Then put my paper on top of that. Now my drawing is ready to go all the time. I can work on it for two minutes or two hours then just walk away without worrying about putting it away.
I have been trying to decide why I am writing a blog. I think I want it to be a type of journal, a catalog of my interests. It's public, so I think that is the reason I went to showing just my art. Now I am thinking if the blog is going to keep my interest it will have to follow my interests. Things like art, cooking, kids, dogs, Jim and his trains and the world around me. Will this be of any interest to others? Maybe sometimes and maybe not. But it, I think, will keep my interest. My blog will be for me and anybody who is interested is welcome to read along. I hope that it will show me in the light that I have always tried to portray, that of some one who is always open to learning new things. To that end I am going to keep Becoming a Renaissance Woman as the title.
