well I didn’t scrapbook today instead I drew. Inspired by Elizabeth Ruuska and Allison Strine and countless others, I made this 10" by 10" canvas for Sean, I had planned on giving it to him as a going away present in a couple of weeks when we leave for Iceland, but will probably give it to him tomorrow instead. I had not drawn, drawn in ages and it felt good. I blocked the image onto the canvas using a photograph as a guide. I then realised I had no white paint so a trip to the shops where in order and library on the way. Well I was in the art store and saw the pastels section, and all ideas I had of using paints were out the door. I picked up a 48 pack of oil pastels that were on sale – for $2 more than the 24 pack! easy choice there. Got home and started on it. Oh I have had a ball! I am not entirely happy with how I drew Sean, especially his eye and the shadows on his face but for my first attempt I am mighty proud, Mum thought it was cool too 🙂
