Let me say very publically...I love spring break. I love being able to sleep in (which for me, 7:30 is still 'sleeping in')...but I love to have all this day time to myself. Love it.
So this morning...I decided to 'wake and draw'. Instead of staying inside, I headed poolside to enjoy a spot in the sun before it gets too hot.
I started working on my CED #74, so far just have the figure drawn in, going with closed eyes and head down for this one.
Drawing the figure is the easy part...figuring out what to do next...that is the hard part...especially now that I am trying to branch out into some mixed media work...which I am loving...but I still think I need to push more. I did notice a change in the works I created once I stumbled upon that Somerset Apprentice magazine (Spring 2012). So I am anxious to see where this will go. I am hoping to bring in some small shadow boxes and work within that space on at least a few of the pieces later this month.
The last piece, #73, was so much fun.
I found this cool bird cage pendant that I took apart a little...add feathers, gems, and layers of paper...my bird figures look like showgirls.
Which, of course, I love...
