6 Paintings in 6 days.

November 27, 2010

I know, quite daunting.  But this is my assignment for my painting class.  I have already done one of a creepy 1960’s doll that was my teachers, but I haven’t the foggiest idea what to do for the other 5.  Any ideas? Anyone?  Anyone?

 

What I have been up to.

I am a bad blogger, and I am sorry to the 4 people who may or maynot follow my blog.  But here are some pictures of some ceramics and paintings that I have been doing in school…

We surely miss you.

Shaped Note Singing

September 26, 2010

Mama and I went to WCU yesterday for Mountain Heritage Day Festival.  She had signed up to sing with the Shaped Note singers and apparently so had I.  I had never done it before and I can read music, but it’s not like reading music.  There are only 4 tones that are sung–FA,SO,LA,and MI.   Tenors, Alto, Soprano and Bass sit in 4 sections all facing the middle and sing at the top of their lungs.  We sang for 5 hours.  It was awesome!

I am not super tech-savvy so I don’t know how to convert the video I have to one that I can upload on WordPress.  But, here is a link so all of you non-Mountain peeps can understand what I am talking about.

Carolina Chocolate Drops…whoa.

September 24, 2010

I went to see the Carolina Chocolate Drops on Tuesday.  My awesome school invited them to play and only charges students $5 to see them.  I was blown away.  They can play every instrument under the sun!  If you haven’t heard of them, check out their website here.

Here is my favorite song they preform:

Embroidering Raoul 2…electric boogaloo.

Here is an updated picture of the embroidery of Eating Raoul for my friend Eric’s blog.  Any critiques?

It's getting there...

I’m kind of a big deal…

I love love love painting with oils! I just finished my very first oil painting and found that I really like the medium and am not too shabby at painting!  I will take a picture soon and post.

Our next project is to pick a master painter and either do a full on copy of the painting of choice or use the painter’s color palette to create our own painting.  I thought I’d go big and choose Frank Frazetta.  Hopefully I will be able to do him some justice.  I will keep you posted on how my painting turns out.  Here is the painting I am basing mine off of.

Oh dear, what have I gotten myself into?
