Pretty Petals

Since I’m in the right mind and mood to blog, might as well I posted something here before the feeling pass on to other things like blog hop or streaming bunch of series online. And God knows when I’ll get back to posting anything good in here. Not that this will be amazing but hey…. I’m here, alive and kicking and I’m sharing something. All is good.

I am currently on my replacement leaves after 10 days of working nonstop. Yup. I was working through the last weekend and I dont usually like to take the replacement leaves immediately. I like to keep it for longer holidays because I like my days to be well planned, but I’m too knackered. So here I am at home and contemplating if I should go to Mom’s for a free meal or not.

And before I decide on anything, I’m sharing this. These were done with watercolor pencils and I’ve posted it before. I’ve finally scanned these and made a few enhancement digitally to brighten up the colors. So here are better, clearer pictures of my “Pretty Petals”. (Oh hey… something that’s finished. Good job, girl!) hehe Thanks.

Ok decided. I’m heading to Mom’s for the free lunch. I don’t know why I took too long to decide. It’s like the easiest decision y estoy siendo estúpido. Tsk tsk.

Bye, love.

A Sketch A Day Project Continues

Still working on it but I hardly manage to keep up with the promise of one sketch per day since it has been a crazy month with a lot of things going on at the office. This kind of arrangement will continue on to March with 2 events to look forward to (Ahem.. and my birthday of course).

Other than that, as you can see, I’m putting more effort in my little sketches by bringing in some colors to it and actually finishing it till the very end. Yupe! No more halfway projects and it wont be a sketch a day challenge any more since I made a pact to myself that I have to finish  the one that I’m working on before moving on to a new sketch. Oh well yeah..I guess it wont be sketches any more too. Instead it’ll be finished drawings. But..

…whatever.

So picking up from where we left off

Better? Well slowly but definitely.

Repurposed canvases

I decided to repurpose the old unfinished painting that I had for years to these two.IMG_3722 IMG_3734

Finally something finished, sealed and ready for framing.

It’s acrylic on 1ft x 1.5ft canvases.

Yay.

Another Throwback

Found some of my old paintings while I was helping the Queen Bee purging out old stuff of ours (and by ours, I meant the brothers’ and mine) because the parental units are relocating again.

This one is acrylic on canvas that I made during my lull period after being recently graduated and not having any job (Awesome time). That was somewhere around 6 to 7 years ago. I made the composition in such way that no matter how you place the twins together, the image continues to the next frame – giving it 4 different compositions with just 2 artworks. Yeah but it was never finished. I have problem with that. No, not with the painting but with ‘the finishing what I’ve started’ thing.

So now, what should I do with these?

a) Finish it!
b) Cover it up and repaint on it.
c) Leave it be.
