Hello, Mr. Yeti! Currently I'm working on two stories for two classes, and this is one of them. I've sketched out my characters and I'm really excited because I have my manuscript written already (it's still a it'll need work) and I'll have more room to work with. This is one of my characters..a I'm sure you can already tell. I got my idea for the story randomly at the beginning of this semester..things are shaping up!

So I never did post the finished version of this painting. This painting was done in memory of my friend Cristina. It was done from a picture of her when she took a trip to El Salvador, and it's one of my favorites. Miss you Cris <3

The Sketchbook Project: 2011

Last week I signed up for the Sketchbook Project (you sign up online, and they send you a sketchbook to fill up and send back. Hundreds of sketchbooks will be taken on a tour throughout various cities in the country so people can take a look at them.) and this morning I got my sketchbook in the mail! I'm so excited to get started!

***(The castle with the bright blue background is a color copy of Sleeping Beauty)*** This has been what I've been working on lately..homework..projects. I've been doing mostly painting this semester. My friend Rocio always ends up being my guinea pig when I need a model for my projects ( 2nd image---thanks Rocio!!). I haven't painted any live figures nor have I touched oil paints til this semester so I would consider that painting pretty successful. As for the sleeping beauty painting that project took a very, very long time but I had a lot of fun since I got to use all these bright colors. Currently I'm working on a portrait (last image) for my watercolor class..the thought of doing a figure in watercolor made me a little nervous but its actually coming out pretty well, so my fears have settled a bit. It's a favorite picture of mine so I really wanted to do it. There will be more to come!!...

Busy Busy Semester!!

All I have this semester are art classes, so for me, I've been frantically painting away! Its the last two weeks so there's a lot to do. I finished my last in-class painting for my life drawing class turned out pretty good I think...
