At art group, most people have finished their pen and ink paintings now, and are back onto their oils or pastels. Madge was doing a grassy prarie with mountains in the background, “And I’m not putting no wildebeast in it”. “I’m not putting none in either”, I said, becoming aware of the grammatical contradiction. Mind you, my trees are from photos taken of Cornwall anyway, and the nearest you’d get to a wildebeest is probably a cow in a field. Maggie has been making some decoupage cards using photos of paintings she has produced herself. Some are for friends and family but she might have some on sale at our Easter exhibition.
I took my 3D drawing book along this week (which was a Christmas present) and began to read it towards the end of the session. It told me to draw some caricatures or cartoons, and I did. Of the group members – so I can’t put them on, or I’ll be in trouble! Next week, l’ll be using the special 3D compasses to try and produce some pictures that way, although if I want to show them at the exhibition, I’ll have to leave the 3D glasses out for people to use, and they might get pinched. Perhaps on second thoughts, I’ll stick to completing my oil painting, now it finally seems to have dried.
Below is a link to a blogger who has recently featured a link to my blog on hers. “Parenting reinvented” is – well - about parenting. It’s an American blog, and many of the articles are aimed at Americans, but the “Angry Birds” shown can be ordered in the UK at Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Limited-Angry-Birds-Plush-Toy/dp/B004N7QMZI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1297531788&sr=8-2S
