I Love Photoshop

It is not a project for class but I missed working in photoshop so much that I had to play alittle.

Love what you do

I had a new assignment this week for my art class. I got to paint in on of my drawings with photoshop. I have always relied on my photoshop skills and never given my drawing skills much merit but through this class I feel I am merging the two talents.

The assignment involved perspectives, I painted a snowy picture. I wasn't as happy with it because my figure holding the umbrella is out of proportion but I did enjoy getting dirty with the paint.

Lastly I did a tree house for my 2 point perspective. This drawing has a lot of sentimental value to me. It takes me back to my childhood. 

I have never had much confidence in my hands on art but the more I practice the better I feel about it.

Back At It

I have been doing graphic design work for various companies off and on for over 10 years. I have finally gone back to school to get the degree to go with it. Currently taking an Art class. This is one of the assignments I have done for the class. I wish I could say this was a thrifty free artwork for my house but the art supplies for this class were over $100.00 but it will all be worth it when I'm done.

Best Find This Year

I have left my local thrift store empty handed for about two months now.

Persistance paid off tho.

Today score, this fine gem.


Shut Up! Yes, really $1.00!!
I know you can see it too, a coat of white spray paint.
The Dr. Pepper bottle is just to show it's size.
And now......

New Buffet

I've wanted a buffet for my dining room for over a year now.
But didn't quite have buffet monies.

My neighbor threw out this record player console.
So guess who gutted it and has a new buffet. ME!

I couldn't believe gutting it would make it
at least 100 pounds lighter.
I still have to find some wood to make doors
and I want to paint it a blue/grayish color.
More to follow on this project.

Well it's done...

It just so happened that the reason I had the primer paint handy,
was because it was nice enough weather to finally paint this....

All I need for this is some cute pillows.
