SELF PORTRAIT


I've been wanting to insert a picture of myself in here for a while now, but figured that doing a self portrait instead would be a little more fun. So, here it is. I didn't use a mirror so there are no wrinkles and my nose is a little smaller but I hope that those of you who know me can see myself in it. What do you think?

IF MUSIC


I just couldn't resist and use something old this time. This is a picture of something that I painted on my dining room wall about 5 years ago. The guy on the right is leaning on my kitchen bar. And I just couldn't stop thinking how this is a perfect illustation for this week's topic - music.

IF UNBALANCED


Unbalanced. Looks like it. Is she? Heck no! This is just a jump and she's having the time of her life:)
This is a pretty quick sketch. I missed last week and there is no way I am missing two weeks in a row, but I had to hurry since it's already Thursday night. I used watercolor pencils again.

MORE BABIES IN BELLIES


I've been working on these during the weekend. Here are the triplets. I know, I know, they're almost like the twins but I just couldn't resist.
And below is my Chistmas Baby in Belly. He / She is ready for the Holidays. It might be because it's coming during this Holiday Season or maybe because it just wants to participate in the celebration.

These are actually my last two of the series. For now anyway. They haven't been as successful as I've hoped and it's time to move on. I'm sure I'll revisit this topic soon but for now I'm planning on working on something else. :) I'll be sure to share it out here.

IF SKINNY


Here's  my skinny. Last week when I signed up for IF, I've decided to submit every week. I feel like it's a good way to stay regular with being artsy.
It's a sketch done with watercolor pencils that I got a long time ago from my dear friend Aga. I haven't used them until now and I have to say that they are pretty cool to work with.
The sketch itself is not as elaborate as I was hoping but I'm a little time constrained this week and I wasn't about not do it all this week.:)

SALT DOUGH ANGEL PROJECT

My sister and I made these angels out of salt dough. I mean she mostly made them and I painted. We thought it'd be lots of fun and super easy, but it actually turned out to be hard and frustuating. It also took hours and hours. We were going to have this great little stand at the Christmas craft fair at the end of the month but we pretty much gave up on it about 5 hours into playing with dough and baking.
We have a whole new respect for dough crafters.
The angels came out pretty cool though. Here are my favorite two:
