I realized I never showed my free-form watercolor to you all. It was my first time using the medium and I am not happy with the result. I feel like I let myself down. I wish I could show you some of my classmates' work -- it's amazing! One girl, incidentally also Stephen/Steven's ex-girlfriend, did this spectacular piece where a girl had an octopus for hair and was surrounded by other sea creatures. When our teacher had first introduced the project -- last November yet -- she showed multiple examples that included marine life and I think it influenced most of us in the class to do something similar, almost subconsciously. Anyway, the girl's watercolor was also featured/made into a poster for a local art show and won money. How cool is that? I think she is well-deserving.
Model Student Senate was unexpectedly fun. I think my various friends enjoyed being either Senators or pages. But, if nothing else, we got to skip a day of school. Will I continue to do it next year? Probably.
I also went and saw To Save a Life with Aniesa, her sister and others yesterday. It wasn't bad. I think I inhaled enough popcorn to certify having high blood pressure, though! I know they do that intentionally so you'll buy a large drink as well. Sneaky, sneaky scamming bums! Now I want make a trip to the cinemas to see The Lovely Bones and perhaps Sherlock Holmes.
Today is my first best friend's birthday. We lost touch after pre-K and have recently reconnected through Facebook. I miss watching Maisy with her. Plus, tomorrow is my mom's birthday. Time to make a card.
It's going to be interesting to juggle three art projects at once. One will be the nebula -- not the one orignally posted -- with not paint but oil pastels. New medium, new struggles? I'm up for the challenge. My grandfather drawing still looms and I've recently been tackling my social issue project. I'll let you see a picture of it. It's not even close to being done. I'll be taking guesses as to what you think the issue might be based off this small hint in the comments. :]
Good night and good luck.
