Poodle Skirts and Prom Dresses
This is an art blog and I haven't posted much art lately. I have been doing sewing projects like Poodle skirts and Prom Dresses. My girls are doing a Grease Musical for their choir concert tonight. I made a black one (pictured) with matching hair ribbon and a pink one with a matching neck scarf (not pictured)
The bottom is a picture of the prom dress I made for my sons girlfriend. She is amazing and I was very happy to do this for her.
I took 4 years of Home-Ec in High school. I finished my requirements in my freshman year. They didn't even have 4 years worth of classes. My Home-Ec teacher called my last year "Individual studies" so they had something to put on my report card. When I sew something up for my kids, it feels good to justify why I took all those extra classes.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
