New Moon at Midnight!

We weren't planning on it but last night when on I got home from my book club my daughter Emma and I decided to zoom over to WalMart at Midnight for the DVD release of New Moon! I was super tired but Emma was so excited and she's such a good kid that I couldn't resist putting a smile on her adorable face. We left about 12:15 to avoid the lines and made it 5min before the store was closing! Emma was thrilled and it was good mother/daughter bonding. We're so excited for the next movie this summer! Happy Saturday to all.!

Practice, practice, practice...

I should be have been doing a million other things today but I let the laundry and the dishes pile up cause I wanted to practice drawing. I work 5 days a week so my free time is limited. I should be asleep right now. I think I'm improving a little bit. The key is to not look at other peoples drawings too much, or you'll start those little conversations with yourself like, "uh, my drawings look ridiculous compared to these." I'm trying to just have fun and tell myself that I can do anything with a little practice. If there is something new you're trying to learn, keep at it, you're bound to succeed if you keep trying!

Fun with faces...

My little brother is taking an art class and some of his drawings are amazing! He has inspired me to give drawing a try. In the first picture I'm just practicing features, I know it's kinda funny with just one eye, the second I did in pencil and crayon, and the third is just pencil. I realize these are very amateur, but I'm really enjoying it. I'm thinking about taking an online class. If anyone has any suggestions for a great online class, let me know.
