new goal

once a week is my new goal. might seem lame, but i don't want to stress so i think it's a good place to start. once a week i will post and the post will be with pictures of my process, finished products OR very much relevant to my work and showing a forward moment. of course that means this post doesn't count. i'm going to try to sit down later today and get something done. most likely work on the colored pencil piece i started and the frames i scrounged up.

the daily grind of life

slow going

had the past week and a half off and you'd think that i would have gotten a lot of art done, right? nope. hardly anything at all. i put the finishing touches on a few things which i have already posted and i started yet another painting which makes a total of 4 paintings started, but none finished. on a more sour note, i've decided i HATE acrylic on wood; it's no good. acrylic on canvas, fine, i can handle, but on wood, heck no! its like painting with glue. my friend said if i gloss the wood first i should be fine, but i don't quite believe her...i have glossed the panels...but i haven't painted on them since. i miss my oils. if i could find another artist to live with we could turn the whole living room into a studio space which would rock and may allow me to do oils once again.

anyways. here is a posted for my show in june:

skool...

lets be honest, a BA in theatre arts gets you better much nothing. i have been looking into changing it up. i applied for an internship as a theatre which i very very much admire and respect, but if i don't get it then i think it might be the straw that breaks my back when it comes to theatre and art. i just can't seem to hack it in that world all by myself with no funds to support me. and so far the idea of finding man to do at least some of the supporting has fallen completely flat :laughs: i'm pretty surprised that the idea was ever in my head in the first place...i blame my last honest boyfriend for installing the idea in my head in the first place. ANYWAYS, i'm thinking about going back to school in order to get the training which will get me a job which i will be able to support myself on so that i can do my art. i would be going back to do computer science which was always my second love..in fact sometimes i didn't know which was my first in the beginning. i'm talking to an former professor of mine currently for some advise about universities, but the whole idea came to me about 3 days too late because all the deadlines to places i'm interested in were march 31 at the latest. just like my flight attendent idea came right when they stop hiring and started firing. :sighs: i guess i'll just have to keep mucking around in this thing we call life.

will post this after i find out about internship since my website leads to this blog...:winks:
