A Moth to the Flame
The second art class that I was supposed to take fell through. Apparently, there wasn't enough interest so the college cancelled it. I was totally bummed. But, I decided I just needed to take action and make something. I bought this book, although I have PLENTY of books on drawing and painting, and I ordered the supplies needed to do the painting of the cat on the cover. I'd show a picture of my work thus far but I'm only up to laying the tissue on the canvas for the background. White on white doesn't make for a very interesting composition.
I'm really proud of myself to have gotten this far. I've found myself starting and stopping a lot of stuff lately. I get that sometimes you have to have more than one iron in the fire but I am like a moth to the flame instead. I burn out far too early and nothing is accomplished.
