Medium: Watercolor, Mixed Media
My niece (who thinks I’m a really good artist, which is really sweet) asked me to paint “smile, be happy” on a canvas for her birthday. I was touched that a 11 year old just wanted my art for her birthday lol. Which was in October and I just now finished lol… pretty typical for me, actually…
I’ve never listened to it in a non-Christmas fashion until I listened to it from the prospective of a friend who went through an uneccesarily harsh breakup and gosh… what a heartbreaking song.
Medium: Water and apparently glue – I saw a “painting with glue” thing on Pinterest and decided to try it out. Pretty fun, if you don’t mind your shit looking like a kindergartner did it. 😂
The thing that I love most about summer break (I taught summer school so I’m technically just starting summer break) is that if I can’t sleep I can stay up as late as I want and doodle all the fuck I want. I hear all the time “teachers have it easy” lol but we NEED these weeks off to recharge after dealing with your children. At the end of the year a kid told me “you’re just a fat white bi*** who can’t get a man.” This was a 5th grader. AND I teach in a “good” school lol. That’s just the average fifth grader these days… I love my job but I’m going to get as much therapeutic painting in as I can before school starts.
