A Still Life
We draw Still Lifes in art class. I'm not sure I know what one is. My life is whizzing by. It's definitely not a still - life. But! I'm enjoying the ride. And, I'm enjoying my drawing class. It was just the ticket to motivate me in so many ways. My instructor is perfect. Amazingly, I have not shriveled from his critiques. He truly has the art of constructive criticism down pat.
No, that's not one of my drawings above. It's a camera-phone picture. I snapped pictures last night with my digital camera. Then, the battery died and not one of the pictures came out well. Or, is it good? And, the one I was willing to post, I accidentally deleted off the card before saving. Darn it!
The above is a cute-cute-CUTE blue mirror that I got from a very special blogger last week and I've been remiss to write about it. Not for lack of love and appreciation. I assure you! I hope to purchase one of her paintings one day soon. I'm just waiting for the right one for me to come along. But, I'm super excited to have one of her mirrors which I find inspirational and whimsical. And, all the more so because it was a loving and gracious gift for winning a contest on her blog. I'm pleased too that she'll be starting her Artsy Essay contests again so perhaps I can have the chance to win more of her creative fruits. Keep your eye on her blog and perhaps you too can win something.

P.S. The above is only a temporary home for the mirror. The overhead light on my stove is the best place for pictures after a certain time of day. Although, having a mirror at the back of your stovetop is supposed to be good Feng Shui, this one is too special to allow to be splattered with grease.
Thank you Judi!!!!
