I found more artwork!

So I've been going through the mounds and mounds of stuff in my house, getting ready to move (my house is going on the market by next month, around the same time I go back to school) and I found two whole portfolio folders full of stuff from my high school art class....just random portrait studies and paintings and even some plexiglas etchings and their prints. SO, I thought I'd go ahead and share my findings with everyone. After all, I have been focusing pretty much totally on photography all summer, so here's a lovely artsy break!

First off, we've got a collage I made around a sketch I did on stiff paper with Conte, which is like chalk, just fancier I guess 

This is a print made from a piece of plexiglas, painted, then hard-pressed onto I think watercolor paper.

This was a piece imitating Cubism, I did half of the butterfly normal and the other half "geometrically," or "cubistic." The branches are also mixed media, with wrinkled up construction paper glued onto the canvas.

This was just a sketch done in class for practice. Kind of like a workshop. 

Pastels or chalk, I can't remember, on black cardboard, just some bottles in an abstract way

Pastel calla lilly on some sort of paper, probably watercolor

Definitely pastels on thin paper

Still life drawing (boring)

Ta Daaaaa!

Update on my internship!

Since many kind people have been interested in how my internship is going, I thought hey! It's time for a new post. 
So I just got August's issue today with about 3 of my pictures in it (I was gone on vacation for about a week and a half of that month). So that was really cool seeing my pictures (that's what makes the whole thing worth it!). 
I just took what's called the "Quicktake" this morning, it's a little blurb review about a cool new restaurant in town. This one was for September's issue, it was a place called The Desserterie. It was actually really close to home, so that made it even better (I commute 30 minutes to my internship, but it's totally worth it, and it's only two days a week). So I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you all for sharing YOUR interest in me! 

Obviously, I took lots of pictures of their DESSERT!! Needless to say I had to hold myself back from indulging while I took these shots, my GOODNESS they looked so delicious. But I'll let you be the judge of that yourself :)
