And we wait again…

Waiting in the ER as I write this post. I will probably be here for several hours as we wait to see if the new antibiotics help my skin infection.

In preparation I have brought my sketchbook and charcoal pencils, my knitting that I restarted, and a stuffy that my son picked out.

I’m still thinking about the self-portrait from yesterday and realized that I made the mouth too wide. When I crop out the bottom part of the painting, I’m pleased with it.

The background needs some work.

I love that I was more daring with incorporating brighter and bolder colors in the face and then added some traditional skin tones. I feel confident that my next attempt will be even better than the first two. I’ve been using unsanded paper but I think I’m going to use sanded paper for this next attempt. I am working on having a light touch with my pastel application but I think I filled the tooth off the Canson Mi Tientes paper that I used yesterday.

Stay tuned – hopefully I’ll be able to share some good news and creations tomorrow!

Hi there, this is Brandi. I'm a pharmacist who works a very funny schedule, all week long but only every other week. As a result I'm off half the year plus vacation time. What do I do in all that time off? Good question... maybe if I start documenting it I'll know too:) Just kidding! I spend a lot of time on domestics: fixing up my house, cooking, sewing, knitting and of course bonding with my darling dog Darcy. I actually have the time and money to travel a bit, finally, so I will try to do that often on my week off. To my friends, this may be the quickest way to see what's going on in my life while I'm away.
