I'm at that point where I would rather be doing anything than sewing. I get like this after I've been cooped up in my sewing room for days on end. I find myself doing odd little things like cleaning out the garage, dying my hair, making yummy treats, blogging. Things that I should most definitely not be doing right now. Just before spring market in May I was digging around in my garage and found my old art portfolios from high school and college. Inside one of them was this:
I forgot that I even knew how to paint! I think I did this when I was 18, but I haven't done anything since. I even tried to sell it once in a garage sale. Can you believe that? What in the world was I thinking? Luckily, nobody bought it.
My husband thought it was a shame to have it hidden in the garage so I decided to hang it in the kids bathroom to brighten it up. I was just in there cleaning and noticed it on the wall and since I am looking for anything to do other than start a new outfit, I decided I would share it with you. I have some other pieces of art that I might show one day if I can get up the nerve, but this one is definitely my favorite.
My boys love this nasty skull I drew when we were working on still lifes in art class, but I don't think I'll post that because it freaks me out! Well...maybe for Halloween.
