When I read other people's blogs I find I am constantly being inspired. There are some posts where you can positively see me drooling and salivating over the creativity and genius within our crafty blog community. Without blogland I wouldn't have even considered trying quilting, evenweave or even using a sewing machine.
I found inspiration of a different kind over on Terry's Blog.
This month I decided to try painting because I couldn't afford to buy anything to decorate my bedroom.
I wasn't going to do any more but then I saw this.
I emailed to ask her if I could use it to base a painting on to which she obviously replied yes (I felt t'was polite to ask..thank you Terry)..and this is what I came up with this afternoon.
Hope you think it is ok...but...BUT Terry is to blame for more than the above painting *(which is still wet and that is why it is shiny lol)....as I looked at her photo I thought to myself how much I would like to actually know what I am doing when it comes to art. I really enjoyed it...so ....like you do....I have applied to do a degree in Art and Design!!!
It is part time and I asked to start in 2013 because I have more surgery next week and possibly another one afterwards...but after a phone interview and them asking me what I do...they want me to apply for this year! This September!!!!
I have to have a portfolio of 20 peices ...well, that is four done rofl. They are giving me until September to finish it but between you and I, I haven't a clue what I am doing. So..Thanks Terry haha.....no, it is ok. I am sure it will be fun lol. I will just have to keep stalking blogland to see what other photos inspire me!
Have a good week everyone, and please, read my previous post re: update for Ellie and Getwell cards for Ellie.
