So, I made it a point not to sleep tonight because I am a. scared b. stressed about the oral surgery tomorrow. About the pain, and the outcome…plus I go to the hospital monday so they can prepare for the redo of my arm surgery cause the metal rods broke through my skin…gross I know.
Like I said previously I’ve been rearranging my small very limited space of a room. Usually I have a separate room as a closet , make up , and office. Now its all in one bedroom so i have to get creative with decor and storage….making vintage dresses wall decor and what not. In addition going through storage that my parents put away of my belongings from years ago (i feel like a hoarder) …and dumping out the unnecessary.
Besides that and blogging what seems to be like a million blogs(sorry folks for over saturating your news feeds, give a gimpy girl a break).
I started to draw …reminder i double majored in studio arts. Post college did not do anything drawing painting or photography related (well photography , cause i was in front of the lenses). Somehow as of late , my brain which is a muscle….muscle memory decided to rear its head no pun, and I have been creating art i haven’t tried in years.
I love charcoal , its so easy to manipulate and flowing. I love how it smudges. I love the black and white high contrast it gives. It feels more dramatic yet so simple. So i took an hour created “distorted faces” mostly charcoal with some watered down and mix medium in some pastel. Rendered the edges slightly on my pixalator….so here is tonights recovery doodle.
I zoned out with my charcoal and sketch book for an hour in between
