Happy Easter, everyone! We (meaning Dad, Mom, Will, and I) read the accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John over the past week in order to 'get in the mindset', so to speak. It's been kind of fun.
Major apologies are in order for those of you who follow the Mizzie story: I am very, very slowly picking away at it, and for being so lax I truly am sorry.
On other news, I have gotten a set of watercolors and I love them. Watercolors used to frustrate me because I would use too much water and all the colors would run together, but recently I have gotten the hang of it and slapped out several paintings. My ratio of 'good' to 'bad' isn't very good, but I do like these two.
I've been on a unicorn kick ever since my last art lesson. My art teacher was commissioned by the local library to paint a mural in the 'teen vault', and the picture is a medieval-looking corridor with open doorways branching off to the sides; at the end of the 'corridor' is a scene with a girl and a unicorn. I drew a picture of a girl and unicorn almost two years ago for this purpose, and we're finally getting the mural drawn and painted. My art style has changed significantly since then, so I'm redrawing the scene. So...the top picture I drew in art class and painted it the same day in watercolors. I haven't actually gotten around to drawing the scene, but I'm getting there. XD
Oh! My art is going to be put on display uptown! There is a new second-hand store on the square, but the owners deal mostly with antiques and artwork. So Mom and I took some of my artwork up there, and two pictures are on display; on days when lots of people are on the square (4th of July and stuff) I'll sit up there and offer to draw people or their animals. If I can get some marketing going I think maybe I'll be able to sell some of my art, which is really exciting. ^^
And, as I promised in the last post, here are the pictures from some of the rehearsals from My Fair Lady: http://picasaweb.google.com/molly.nolden/MyFairLadyRehearsal32909?authkey=Gv1sRgCNrb5rqyur2V3QE&feat=directlink
