Perfect for a painting

I like this picture. Taken last month at balboa park in the prado restaurant, it would make a very nice oil painting. Interesting background and a clear light source. But I’ll have to teach myself how to do this portrait at least for the next year or two, since I’m starting on the 3D sculpting instead. Wonder what we get to make in the first class? Some fun sculptures would be my dragon cat (done properly), the cat and mouse house, a small little mouse like creature that could scurry up a tree (combination of squirrel and mouse), the lady in the moon, or a hand seat for a cat. Might save the dragon cat for a more advanced class, it’s such a vivid picture in my mind.

Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
