My ever-so-helpful friend, let's call her "Tanya" (Tanya was such a cool name when I was in HS) told me that people would enjoy seeing my artwork and the projects we do at school and all that kind of thing. I am going to take her word for it and throw a couple of photos up on this page. My main outlet for creativity these days is photography, and I am getting my hands-on painting fix from the scenery we are preparing for our school musical. The show is "Honk", which is an updated version of The Ugly Duckling. Photos may follow on that one! These are two paintings I did earlier in the school year:
|Old Truck- Oil on canvas|
|Old Truck 2- oil on canvas|
And I am going to post a couple photographs that I recently took:
|Past It's Prime|
Do you sense a theme? Why am I showing you so many old trucks? I am thinking there may be an antique truck number 3 in oil paint in the near future! I am not necessarily an old truck nut or anything (though there are those who may dispute the nut part), but I love the curves of old vehicles and the lovely patina of the weathered paint and rust. I think older people (say over 50 or so) should be admired more for their patina!
So, why is the art teacher mad today? Well, we have to go BACK to school tomorrow, which is enough to drive anyone mad. But, winter would be boring without the kids. Until next time... be a joy giver!
Btw, if you want to see more of my photography, short of hacking into my computer, go to Capture Wisconsin. You can vote for my pix if you want to!!
