Day Twenty-nine!

 

Today is a basic image kind of day. Started my drawing when I woke up because in all honesty if I didn’t do it then, then it wasn’t going to happen. I’m at the Source today and after work there will of course be drinks with my girls from up this way. That in itself  means nothing productive will happen after. Anyway, everyday is its own thing and all I ask from each day is to get into a drawing even if it is only for a short while. So enjoy and I apologize for the horrible photograph my iphone is malfunctioning. Silly thing! See you tomorrow!

Day Twenty-three

I can tell you that when I got home from work all I wanted to do was sleep, but I was super excited to see my sister and her family who arrived back from Florida today! We had been watching their two puppies so once they headed home tonight we were down to four dogs, that’s nothing once you have had six puppies! Anyway I worked from 10 to 8 today and started drawing around 9:30… I needed to finish something rather quickly mainly because I am meeting a friend at 6:45 in the morning to go to the gym and let’s be honest who REALLY wants to wake up at like 5:45am to get out of the house in time to go to the gym. I honestly am excited to get my workout in early but the sooner I head to bed the better. As for drawing, I was delighted to have worked on something today. I also filled out my application for Open Studios, which is always a good time. Now to get some of my finished works framed! EXCITING! Alright, I’ll see you tomorrow!

DAY TWENTY!

 

feels like a milestone today! Funny how since I started this challenge every day seems like a milestone for its own particular reason whether it be the  actual numerical day or because I am shocked that I actually got something posted! Regardless, I am happy with what I have been doing. Today’s post is coming a bit late but better late than never. I spent the day working, then a wonderful 3.5 mile walk/talk with a very good friend followed by some cooking, Shepard’s Pie to be precise, a big hit in the Fogarty household! Anyway, today’s image was a layering process for me I started with one base shape and kept building from there. What it did make me realize is that I think I want to try this concept in color so watercolor here I come… Could tomorrow bare color, the world may never know…. until DAY TWENTY ONE!

DAY NINETEEN!

Today is going to be super long and since I know I won’t have energy to do this later I decided to work on my drawing before work. I love the shape although the image is kinda basic. I won’t lie I just don’t have the time to get into detail.  I’m excited for the next few days though nice and “short” days with plenty of time to draw.

For anyone who has been reading these, you are already aware that I have six dogs staying at the house right now and normally when I get home from work I have a chance to sit and clear the head, but for now I have to be with them to try and ware them out since they apparently never run out of energy. Wow that seems like a serious run on.  It is funny though watching these crazy animals, they have such personalities. Alright enough about the dogs I’m gonna start sounding like crazy dog lady, forget cats. Time to go I’ll see you tomorrow!

Day Eighteen!

Well, it is fun to look at the image and then remember it came from day sixteen. I’m not sure what my final thoughts of the image are but it was very enjoyable to destroy the prior image. Maybe I shouldn’t call it destroying but it felt that way. This exercise has always been a big hit with me, I have an obbsession with changing things I don’t like and normally it is drastic. Maybe I’ll cut the next image up into tiny bits who knows. I’m very happy to have had fun while working on this since I was kind of wrecked after working all day at the salon. Tomorrow will be interesting, I’m working for 12 hours,from 8:30 to 8:30, and I need to try and fit something artistic in there! Well good luck to that! I’ll see you tomorrow!

Day Seventeen

So I thought today was going to be a brilliantly productive day but it ended up being quite the opposite. It was gorgeous here and after I worked out and did my errands I ended up meeting a friend at the beach. Now I had a wonderfully amazing day with a friend I had not seen in months, but I was far from creative unless you count building a sand castle with an awesome 3-year-old. That kind counts it was like a sculpture which was then destroyed by that same small 3-year-old feet!  Once I finally sat down to draw I was kinda out of it, funny how sitting on a beach in the sun can actually feel draining. I usually get mad at people when they say things like that but here I am saying the exact same thing. Anyway, I did my drawing and I like how there is like one shape that was being continuously built off of, but that’s it for today folks. Tomorrow is a new day. See you tomorrow!

Day Sixteen

Today was such a beautiful April day, Marathon Monday here in Boston. It was crazy hot though for the runners, it was like 84 which when running a marathon can not be enjoyable. I don’t even enjoy like 70’s for a 5k… Id prefer like 40/50. Anyway, had to work a bit today which was fine and after work on my way back into the lovely town of Hull I was stuck in crazy traffic for ages. In a way it was kind of entertaining, There were so many people and the cars were insane, people were parking everywhere. If there was like a bit of grass/dirt/undesignated pavement they were parking there. The out-of-town beach goers were not in luck though there were like 3+ tow trucks just hauling away cars. Mad really it looked like Southie on the street cleaning days.  Those outta towners never learn. Anyway, I started drawing around 6 and enjoyed the cooling weather on the back porch. Now this image I’m not crazy about and I think that this will be the one I “destroy” and try to develop something else from it. Tomorrow I have the day off and after my morning class I plan to find a good spot to work from… Hope I find my inspiration! See you tomorrow.

Day Fifteen

Today was such a wonderful and perfect day. For those of you who don’t live in the Boston area, it was sunny like high 70’s and perfect. My day started with a run on the beach with the hubby and some after run breakfast sandwiches. When we got back to the house we set up camp on the back porch and things only got better from there. The SIX puppies were running amuck in the backyard having a ball while I was drawing and lee was reading. Now, many hours later all the dogs are completely panned out ALL over the house, mainly because there are six of them! As for the drawing, I spent some time just developing the image and although I said I would rework it tomorrow I don’t know if I am really ready to. Also, sticking to the monochromatic color scheme has really been helpful for my imagery because it takes away a bit of distraction. Anyway, Ill see you tomorrow!
