31 Days Straight Art Day 30: March 30, 2015


Yay! Second to the last day of the 31 Days Straight Art! I am sorry if I ended up just posting everything on one day. I have been very tired as of late. I did take pictures of everything so it is not all lost!

Spring has officially sprung (daytime wise but weather wise it was like this since January). I am upset about the weather. It is just too damn nice! It feels more like summer than spring. The lack of rain didn't help. In fact, it made things worse.

Since it is so damn nice I went to the yard to weed out my strawberry patch. It has it coming. I had put coffee grounds on the ground to get rid of the snails from the strawberries, which works to a degree. Once you water the plants there is a limit on the effectiveness. I will have to get some more after I get back home.

31 Days Straight Art Day 29: March 29, 2015

Hello again,

I haven't been inspired to sew, mainly because I can't get my sewing machine to behave. It happens to the best of us. We cannot all be masters of our machines as much as we like it, so I took another break from sewing today. I really need to stop that.

So I did some drawing late into the night. I am such a nerd sometimes! I have watched TONS of anime but my favorite would always be Sailor Moon. It just has that certain something that is lovely AND pathetic about it at the same time. I haven't really seen many shows that comes close to this. I grew up watching it. I was around 6 when the show started, so I knew about the show but it wasn't in the US until much later. By then everyone around me was hooked on the show. I guess with the dawn of the Internet and all we can all enjoy the show now whenever we want to, but the manga is the thing that stuck with me.

I am usually awful with my drawings. My family is a family of artists. My brother is an artist. My mom (was) an artist. I have an uncle that was famous for his Chinese style watercolors (he has since passed away LONG ago). I have a niece that is studying art in art school (lucky her! I want to go to art school!) I love to draw but I rarely keep anything because let's just say that my family's achievements overshadow mines any day. Plus my house has limited space so drawing anything large would make things worse. I haven't given up hope yet. I do have watercolors and I do have watercolor paper, so maybe someday when I am not so nervous about drawing I will color them and give them some life.

Well now you know I can draw. I shouldn't be embarrassed about it really... I really should just post them anyway.
