I moved to Sarnia into my now husbands home...it was lovely, he welcomed my belongings (including my multiple bins of arts & crafts supplies) and more importantly, me. It felt like home but I never quite felt it was My Home...so, we began to talk about searching for OUR home...We had been looking at on line sites and shared ad's on social media for a couple years now, but never quite pursued this.
We were comfortable!
But then, a fellow art friend shared a posting on good ol' facebook.... gotta love facebook! :)
I viewed all of the images and read the details and thought...Oh boy, this could be THE ONE.
I forwarded the article to my husband and....well, In short, that night we went to a showing and funny enough, it turned out to be another fellow art friend who owned the home. Felt like it was meant to be.
This was it....Our time to start the next chapter.
So, now I sit in MY/OUR new home after a lot of hard labour and mental stress....moving is work!
I laugh at this moment in time, because I am presently taking 2 courses through the Community College...Nutrition In health care and Drawing Realistic subjects with Pencil.
Yes, Drawing...I wanted to add a fun art subject to my selection, again. No ceramics this time though, I wanted to do everything on-line.
I thought I would complete a couple on-line courses to avoid the drive and work at my own pace, to provide more free time to focus on myself (exercise and such), and here I am, in the middle of a huge life change. Oh, it's been all worth it though and I am so very proud of my husband and I.
Unpacking and organzing and all I can think about is getting my drawings completed. Being an artist and not doing art is like not eating or drinking... I am sooooo thirsty.
I had completed 4 lessons before the move and I would like to share them... I always loved to draw with graphite and although my most love is painting...to be a great painter you must know how to draw, understand the light and contrast and shadows and value.....AND cast shadows and reflective light which are two of the subjects I needed to work on.
I have been pleasantly surprised how following these tutorials are helping me understand and see this more clearly.
P.S. Anyone can take these lessons.... check out "realistic pencil drawings" with Melissa Schatzmann.
A wonderful teacher and artist. :)
Well, I must finish unpacking, sorting and organizing... Thanks for reading and supporting me and the love of art.
