Without Colors

Posted 10 hours ago

Oh no! Or so I thought for a moment.

My New Agent contacted me about Tomorrow's job. She said that they would be providing the paper, and it would be fine if I just draw head/shoulders in black/white. That means, of course, that the Paper will be White!

I figured I should check it out. I felt like I should try a Warm Up on White Paper using Only Black Markers and Black Color Stick.

Oh. Looking at the randomly chosen reference pictures, I sure wish I could use Blue Paper this time. Or at least a pink and a brown Color stick. But as an exercise ~ to be ready for tomorrow's event ~ I really kept it Black/White.

Success! I didn't need the extra supplies after-all. I feel confident to draw at tomorrow's Black/White event

Graffiti Words

Posted 1 day ago

We had a good time at this Party. I imagine the children will be positively affected by the Graffiti Words. And they usually hang them on the wall in their homes after the Party. The picture (the Word) becomes a basic part of their lives. But I feel like I could have had more impact if I didn't let the children tell me what word they wanted me to write for them. I feel like they already affiliated themselves with the words they gave me. But if I bestowed my random positive words on them, my pictures could have broadened their sense of self.

If people feel like they have only the labels they had already been given, they might feel limited. As though that's all they could be. Or they Must always be That. Pigeon-holed. Possibly even limiting their futures.

If we didn't get off on the 'wrong track' (I don't remember for sure, but I think my hostess told the children that they could tell me what word they want me to write for them), I could have helped people access the positive traits that we all have inside ourselves. Sometimes dormant or hidden, but it is there.

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Temperence, Action, etc

The Artist should be Drawing for Herself

Posted 5 days ago

The Artist should be drawing for herself. Or else she's just a hack. She here I am again. Drawing and drawing and drawing and drawing in my Time Off. Even though my previous style already works just fine at Events.

But here I am still learning my new style. I arbitrarily chose a photo of a woman that I previously drew just fine at a Party. I felt Blocked against using my new style tonight, but I made it through to Success.

I lost the first picture I drew ~ trying the new style. Came out crummy anyway. Maybe it's just not my Zone for this moment. Another part of Artwork besides trying new things ~ is to Not Force It. Comes out best if I do what's working. So i put myself onto Uninspired Automatic. Feh.

Nope. So I went back to my original reason for drawing on my time-off. Nope ~ this isn't what I'm looking for. The next one was really getting away from me. Then an ugly picture. That's not right. Then perky, but wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Am I really just drawing the same Incorrect choices over and over? Stop. Look again. Come up with something different. I started the circle thing. Got it right the 2nd time. Pretty good Caricature, but I sure hope I would never draw anything like that at a Party. It would get a good laugh, but that's not who I am. It's not what I want to do.

I want to help people accept themselves with all their idiocyncracies, and feel thrilled with themselves ~ just the way they really are. I like clean, energetic drawings. My final drawing here: Success

Here are a few of the Names that I drew at a recent Party. I just know that the girls are going to feel special to have them.
