It is time to update my current artistic goals. I like to reflect on my long-term goals and short-term goals (which are smaller goals to attain the bigger ones).
I’ve decided it is time I learn how to paint on canvas. I briefly took up oil painting in my youth, as I’m reminded every time I visit my parent’s house and walk by my early work hanging there. I have always wanted to work with a variety of mediums- with the exception of chalk because the texture and feel of it makes me cringe.
Anyhow, starting new month, I am taking 2 classes on painting with acrylics. I will give you more info about this class as it gets closer. I am excited to take a class as I am mainly self taught.
I am also thinking of taking art classes at my local college. I had hoped to sign up for metal arts this semester, but the class filled before I could register. Perhaps I should improve my drawing ability by taking a drawing class. Since I like to draw anyway, it would be helpful.
What are your artistic goals?
Lynn will be jealous to know I have been spending quality time with Woody the last few days. The Woody Gate is coming along nicely, today I ordered the 4 light fixtures that will hang on each gate pillar. Woody spent alot of time explaining to me why the gate needs to be HIGHER… I just think its a redneck ploy to make the gate as “bitchen” as possible.
I still have to order my flat screen monitor that will be next to my telephone in my Great Room. The system works like this… Car pulls up to our “bitchen” Woody Gate and presses a button on the keypad control that is mounted flush to my rocked entry gate. This rings the house and give us the ability to see the person on the monitor by way of a minature color camera. We can then open the gate and let the person in- or not if they are simply lost.
Family members and emergency personel will have a special code they are given to gain entry. Joe and I will have special electronic gizmos on our vehicles so it senses when we are nearby and opens automatically.
Fancy system to keep Rancher Ed’s cows out, don’t you think??
Plans this weekend include Easter Hill, putting in my second garden, and hopefully a visit to see Jack on his first Easter. Oh… btw, if anyone can help me in my last minute search for a Parsnip Pete Chocolate Easter Bunny, please HELP!!! It just isn’t Easter without Parsnip Pete!
