My Keys, Ink and Water color, Moleskine.
I can’t function at work without these keys! I bring them with me everywhere! There’s my swipe card for work which I use to sign into the computers+workstations, my OH! Henry/Reese retractable blade (my two favorite chocolate bars, btw.), Hawaii key chain (which I don’t know why I have it since I’ve never been to Hawaii), and keys for work and home. I use about six of those keys everyday, several of them I don’t even know what door or lock they open to. I should probably decrease the amount of keys I have, it’s getting really heaving on the pockets!
As for the drawing, I’m actually quite glad how it turned out. I started it about 3 weeks ago and stopped halfway because I was getting frustrated w/ the colors that I was using, but I decided to finish it over the long weekend and I couldn’t believe how well it turned out. I use student grade water colors, I bought them when I first started learning about water color, but now I find the color in the set aren’t the type of colors that I need. Maybe it’s time that I upgrade to a higher quality of water color that would suit my needs a lot more and give me a more richer colors to my paintings.
I love the holidays only because it means I actually get some time off work. haha. No turkey this year though, I’m just going to relax and do some drawings at home.
I’ve been working on a painting for the past couple of days. It’s been so long since I’ve held a paint brush. I can’t even remember how to mix colors! But the painting is turning out really well. I might post it in a couple of days when I’m done. I’m just super glad my paints haven’t dried out after so many years!
Here’s a lil update… well kind of, I drew this less than a month ago for fun. I got the model off from one of the Glamour magazine pages. haha. I thought it would be neat to draw. I actually didn’t want to color in her hair and lips in the beginning, but I guess I got a little carried away. =) Sorry about the quality of the picture, I no longer have my scanner, so now I have to resort to using my camera instead for taking images of my artwork.
My brother Len and co-worker Jacob walking up to the Inukshuk
During the summer, my family and I was able to go see the Inukshuk near our house before my brother left for Calgary. It wasn’t as rocky of a climb as I thought, there’s actually a drive path behind the hill that you could use to get up to the Inukshuk. The statue was huge! We were able to get a family picture underneath the Inukshuk. It was such an awesome sight! You could almost see the whole town from up there!
