Right off the bat...I posted some final pics today...my daily piece, CED13- 51 and the final pics of my 'Winter Ladies'.
Not sure I am feelin' that name. Might have to revisit that. But not tonight.
Tonight I met up with my JV cheerleaders to collect their uniforms and poms in exchange for a little treat bag with some candy, a team photo and a CD that Marisa's mom made for each of the girls with the pictures from our last game. I blocked off 4-6pm as the time I would be there, waiting at the Starbucks in Barnes an Noble- my plan was to work on some fashion illustrations. I walked in, picked up the latest Harper's Bazaar and set up, with all intentions to sketch. It never happened, for four reasons.
#1... I wanted to draw the whole magazine. I opened to the first page thinking... 'I am going to select one print ad that inspires me and then look up more of the collection.' Problem is...I liked too many. I closed the magazine after the first ten pages...Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Jil Sander, Louis Vuitton...I wanted to just jump into the pages of the magazine and close the cover, trapping myself inside. Sigh.
#2... I was too busy chatting it up with folks I adore. Coach Ralston stopped by and sat with me for just about the whole two hours, and cheerleaders were stopping by with their cheer items. With all the hugging and catching up- I just never got around to sketching. And they brought gifts! Wow. Totally did not expect that...thank you Marisa and Lexi! Love you both!!
#3...when I got home I was distracted by unpacking from my weekend in Atlanta and then putting away jewelry. Anytime I put away jewelry that is automatically 30-45 minutes. I like to stay organized. I am a little OCD about my accessories.
#4...I finally sat down at my art table to sketch and then I decided that I should work on my 'big bow girl'...distracted by the need to add crystals to her bow and uniform.
So...not gonna beat myself up too much. Maybe tomorrow I will sit down and do some fashion illustrations after my middle school cheerleading practice. Or...maybe some more winter girls...or more bow heads...hmmmmm....
