Central Netted Dragons

I think my dragons are getting frisky! Well one of the boys is. This could be the start of their breeding! Whoot! A new chapter in their life.....

Art Class

Today was the final of the 4 art classes that I signed up for. I can say that I learnt heaps from them and am glad that I decided to try them out.
Our art teacher (Mark Robinson) has decided to continue teaching classes on Thursday nights. This is great because now I can finally do something for me and at the same time improve on my drawing skills. Today we learnt a little on perspective, composition and aesthetic eye/design. When I get a little more sleep I shall be able to put these things into practice and hopefully produce some masterpieces, or at least something that will hang on my walls.

I know where I want to put them, on the feature wall in my office, school, work, computer area. I think a cork board the size of the recess would look good, especially if i had some neat looking pins to put the artwork up with. The kids could even have a section, and it would be a constant reminder of where i could improve, to keep practising, etc etc. I might look into that for a future idea. Possibly tonight, I might look at practising todays lesson, even if it is only rough.

"Workin' Hard"

Well, I am working hard. My list of things is never ending and I am not sure how I ever fitted in homeschooling on top of it. Tomorrow I have my sister arriving at 7am so she can babysit the kids while I head to art class. During art class I expect to have my sis-in-law and her hubby arrive, as well as the property manager to do the 3 monthly rental inspection. Once that is taken care of it will be great, relaxing and I possibly will get more then 5 minutes uninterrupted in which to draw, sew, paint, read, create, and get started in my new business.

Regarding the new business, I am not sure how it will take off. It could be a roaring success or a dismal failure. I am hoping it is a success and eventually I will be able to get some sponsorship for it. Once I have it up and running it will be easy to maintain and keep going.

Enough said for now, except for the fact that I hope to have it up and running in the next week. Time to go mop floors, set up the guest room, do the dishes, finish up my drawings for tomorrows art class, finish the last few pages of the fantasy novel I am reading, shower, etc etc.
Have a good night!

"Sketching"

Last night I finally got to starting on my homework. It is amazing how busy you get when you have kids and then it doesn't stop till you get to bed. Last night I said no to playing cards with the family, I said no to watching tv and started on my pre-lim sketches of the character I want to create for art class. I actually drew two figures but the second one really was no good. They are full of lines but they are only the roughs, outlines, etc.

I really enjoy these art classes but may have to forfeit next monday's class due to rellies coming to stay (needing to be picked up from the gold coast - 2 hr drive there). I am hopefully going to be able to organise it so that I can arrive late and stay late.
Our first lesson consisted mainly with the basics, looking at the musclces in the body, how to get proper height, positioning, shapes etc.
My next class is tomorrow

"Busy Bee"

Today originally looked to be a nice slow day, easy going, etc etc. It never ended like that though.

The day started with getting up early to take hubby to the train, then a round up of kids, getting them ready and heading out to get petrol before picking up my sister so she can babysit while I attended my first art class.

Art class was great. The guy teaching it has produced some amazing works and he was easy to understand and follow. Since there was only 6 in the class it was small and I got a good seat. I did get a little bit of homework to do and I have to bring in a picture I have drawn previously. I have an idea of what I will bring in but am yet to find it.

After this it was a quick dash up to my mum's shop to drop my sis off, then head to the shops to find it a waste of time and head home for lunch before heading out again. During our home time we had a repairman arrive, fix and leave, and we had lunch also.

Did you know Merc has the stamina to stay awake during car trips now? Unfortunately she does and has not had a sleep today so I am expecting an early bed time for her tonight.

Lunch over and it was time to head out and do more chores. We were home by 3pm. Well, 1 minute to 3pm and I had told the girls I wanted to be home by 3pm at the latest. I guess I scrapped it in close.

Now all I have left to do today is the household chores, possibly fix a holey lamb and prepare dinner while trying to fit in drawing practise!
