I've been sick for the past week or so. Here is a new piece I have had shelved for some time now in my folders. I knew I didn't like the original colors that I did(they were far too intense for my linking) so I toned it down to more of a soft palate. I like it better now. Holidays are coming up quite quickly, it always comes faster now that I'm older. I remember waiting like crazy and doing the advent calendar at my house and thinking it would never come. Now Christmas just sneaks up on you. I sadly won't be getting to spend the holiday with my brother, mom, or dad...I will miss them.
I've been wanting to do a drawing of Jane Eyre. I just have to find the right photo for it. I'm going to go see "A Dangerous Method" tonight which will be interesting. I've heard so much about Carl Jung and learned a bit about him in my time with an Analyst. I hope its good.
Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday time!

Nearly a month since an update! My, I shouldn't do that again. I wanted to post the finalized version of Tea Time. I adore Elizabeth. Not all the things she did but what she stood for. A woman in a time and world where to rule as a woman was often not done. When I went to London with my mom after I graduated high school, one of my highlights was getting to see her tomb at Westminster. I couldn't get over the fact that I was standing beside the tomb of a woman I looked up to for her strength. I love drawing Elizabethan garb. Its so intricate and those lace fans they wore were stunning, though I'm assuming quite cumbersome to wear they looked like something that just needed to be painted.
I wonder what Bess would think if she knew how many documentaries, movies, plays and costumes had been made to immortalize her reign. I'm assuming she would be quite happy and perhaps want to have some tea to celebrate.
Next thing I want to draw is Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. I'm going to go see "A Dangerous Method" when it comes out this month!
Also in wonderful news. Bunny Dee was featured in a wonderful brand new online magazine!The Unexposed is a wonderful magazine that interviews up and coming artists and seeks to display their work and thoughts. I'm interviewed on page 148. Take a look!
Hope everyone had a good thanksgiving and a good holiday coming up!
