Art Whatever No. 7

Hope everyone had a Happy Christmas today. It was pretty awesome for me. All I needed was to see the movie Love Actually. Best movie to watch for Christmas. Not much art stuff today besides having the honor of celebrating and admiring God's best piece of art that is Jesus Christ and His birth. I know that sounded wrong but tried to make art fit in with today's Christmas thing. Anyways, I got my camera back so I will be putting up some pics either tonight or tomorrow. Have to go now. Joyeux Noel!

Art Whatever No. 6

Uber sorry that I have not posted lately. I have been kept busy with school as exams are this week. Actually today is my Math exam and I'm at school on blog. That's life. Anyways, let's get caught up. I did go to the art show. It was quite a hassle though. Fortunately I was not the only one at the door handing out the show programs. Either way the show was a bit bootleg, as I expected. I finished my portrait but I have not been able to post them because I have retrieved my camera to take the pics. Yesterday I took the Art exam and it was friggin sweet. Everyone was nervous but I was just thinking "Whatever". Anyways I annihilated it with a nice surrealist oil pastel piece and included all the elements necessary for the exam. I was very proud because I finished it in the appropriate time with a minute or two to spare. The Digital Phot exam was not as pleasing as I thought it would be. I almost bombed the Camera part of it and I got an 81 on the online part. The online part ticked me off because I knew the stuff but panicked. Anyways thats all the art highlights so far. For the Winter Break I plan on doing some more oil pastel and maybe a painting or two. Will post more tomorrow.

Art Whatever No. 5

Sorry I have not posted in a while. I've been sick for almost a week now, but today I feel better. Let's see. Art stuff. Hmmm....OH! Tomorrow is the Spain Park High Winter Art Show. Anyone reading this from SP should come out and support the art and the artists. Also, there will be a lot of cookies present and cookies are always good to have. I do not believe that I placed this year, sadly :'( , but I will still go for a bit to get the grade and help out a bit. I will be at the door handing out programs (hopefully not by myself). Then I have to work. The show should be good though. Perhaps not like years in the past but still good. As for my projects now, I have a completed oil painting of a Venetian building thing. Quite nice in my opinion. My portrait is close to being finished. I might just stay up tonight to finish it for tomorrow's show. Unfortunately, I cannot post picture because I don't have my camera to take any. After these two projects, I am heading towards a metamorphasis project that will be done over my winter break. Also, I am thinking about doing another oil painting but I have no idea what to paint. Whatever it may be, it will probably be finger painting. Finger painting will be an experiment for my next painting project. Yup. I think that's all so good night.

Art Whatever No. 4

I'm going to try to make this one fast and juicy as the last two posts have been quite long. Let's see. Today, I went to school early to get some stuff done. I happened to go in the library and started checking out the new work for the winter art show when I noticed my still life drawing was not up there. A bit disappointed I must admit but I at least lost first and second place opportunities to the two I knew were my competition for that category. After school, I went to help put finishing touches to the show til five. It was pretty cool but I was disappointed to see a small number of people at the meeting, especially with this show being a very frantic one with all the new changes and what not. Oh well. I'll try to put up a new post of my current project in a few minutes. Till tomorrow.

Art Whatever No.3

So, HA! It is currently 11:43 and I am typing the post for today. I actually did a new post the next day and not the next year. By the way, what is up with Blogger time? It is way off. Maybe I need to do some kind of adjusting. Anyways, did not get to stay after school today to help with the art show but tomorrow seems like a swell day to stay after. In art today, I was filled with a sense of something today. My experiments were crappy failures but what I was informed of was better. The Scholastic Art Competition is in a sense, underway, in our class. Though only two or three will only participate, I believe it would be awesome to put my work in there. I need to check it out more but I am definitely going to give it a shot. I'm not sure about deadlines but from what I was told by my art teacher, it seems that I have months to prepare. I will most likely put in a whole ishload of stuff, that is if I can. Tomorrow I have Digital Photo as my first class and I am unsure about it. We have a second quarter exam that I need to be studying for tomorrow but somehow I ended up here. Also, I am creating an event poster on Photoshop that is weak right now but. if I implement a new idea for it, could turn into a beastly thing. So I'll be going now to study like half a minute for the exam. Oh, and please check out a problem that I need solved. It is in Art Whatever No. 2 and respond. Je demande une response. I don't even think that is correct French.

Art Whatever No. 2

Hello. Sorry I haven't been on in a while but I've been totally swamped with school and work so I haven't had much time to post. Right now I'm working on a project that I am trying to bring back, as I haven't had the opportunity. I'll see if I can post a separate post so anyone can help me with it by critiqueing it. It is a self-portrait of myself using oil pastels. This has to be my favorite self-portrait ever and one of my favorite pieces. I'm kind of at a bump in the road with it because I'm not entirely sure about what I should do for my background but I haven't given up. Speaking of, I would like to ask anyone who uses color pencils as a medium for advice. A classmate of mine decided to use color pencils as her medium for her portrait. It looks way awesome and I have to give her a lot of credit, as I practically suck in that medium. Anyways, she has been uber frustrated lately (so much that it shows and being the great artist that she is, is surprising) because the paper that she used doesn't have enought tooth or something so she can't add more color to her piece. Too much waxy build up I believe. Our teacher helped her today but she doesn't look to optimistic. Anyways, all I ask for is advice for her so that she may work with that or around it or any methods to use. The Spain Park Winter Art Show is next week so it would be nice for her to be finished by then and better for me because I'll have some competition. Hopefully, I'll be able to go help out at the MANDATORY meeting and take a sneek peek at the scores on my pieces. For now, I have to get back to my current piece so til tomorrow night....Wait, scrap that. I can't even go to the meeting now that I think about it. Work. But I will post.
