157: painting

another cheating post, as mentioned in the beginning.

i painted this last summer when i was taking an art fundamentals course. it was the first time i painted something and knew what i was looking at. the project was something like “subtle illusions,” and we were tasked with clipping photos from magazines and combining them with a small twist. the twist in this is small (very, very small). and it’s not that i never painted her face or that she has a huge block chin and what may be a hunchback should she stand straight. still, for my first and only painting i’d consider it a moderate success. at the very least, not a complete failure.

I drink too much unsweetened iced tea, sleep too little and laugh too loud, all while creating something new every day and trying to remember there is beauty in everything.
