I been sick for over a week. I know I haven’t posted for about 3 weeks, so I don’t know what to tell ya about the other 2. I been doing some small, more personal arts in my art journals. Been kinda/sorta following the class on ning and stuff.

This weekend I wanna go *back* to my very short-lived sketchy sunday “tradition.”

Here’s some art for another new “tradition” I’m gonna call “Art Journal Friday, Dammit.” Maybe some weeks I’ll leave off the “dammit.”

I drew them as I watched Tam’s Week 2 Video.

Then I cut them out of my sketchbook and collaged them here in my small journal. Then I just pushed some paint around for awhile, along with some extra graphite and some ink from a black gel pen.

These gals kinda remind me of an art journal entry I did last year.

So yeah. Sometimes I look at High Fructose and I think to myself, as though I were still a teenager, “will I ever be that good???”

Then I have to remind myself that I didn’t have the luxury of art classes or anything like that. I have to remind myself that I can draw what I can draw, I can paint what I can paint,I can improve what I can improve in my lifetime, and that is enough reason to keep doing it because doing it makes me happy whether it’s good or it’s bad.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Happy Saturday Morning.

BTW, has anyone noticed how cold it is in Orlando?
