First art class… Kate Sheedy

Today I went to my first art class!
This is my first art class picture…and oh my I think it’s good!!!
Lol. I have started art class, because I love to doodle, love making pictures, am struggling with my second journey picture (still!) and was pretty much 100% convinced that I couldn’t draw…and then I did this!
Surprise doesn’t really cover it.
I can still see lots of little problems with it..and I don’t think I’d ever want to do portraits for a living (or anything else that is actually supposed to look like something in particular) as I can see why my mother-in-law used to swear at her pictures so much trying to get them ‘right’…
But I can draw 800% better than I thought I could!
Now I’m on the hunt for some images that approximate Lilith’s face, and hopefully I can move on with my journey pics.

Hi mungojelly!

 

My mother nature

 

I love my mother’s pictures…especially the pictures she finds in nature…just looking through them on screen makes me happy and more relaxed…so here are three for us all to see.


And it’s nearly mother’s day too! It’ll give me an excuse to do more mum things!

The motorway

Taken by my mum at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Everyone is taking it in turns to be ill…Again! …I’m trying to refuse to be ill.

This has been an amazing week where Thursday felt like Saturday, Friday felt like Sunday, and by yesterday we has no idea what day it was for half the time…

I like not knowing what day it is…I think it goes someway toward being in the moment once you begin to lose your framework.

I have a particular few moments that always feel as though no time has passed between them…the moment I realise it’s Friday again, some point on every motorway journey, moments in the light on the beach, and having a cigarette with certain friends (though I don’t smoke anymore so…) in those moments, some enjoyed for longer than others, suddenly nothing is separated, everything is a daydream or thought or distraction from that moment. It is all the same. In those moments I feel sure I am in them forever, have been, always will be…those are also the moments I am far from sure that I am me…I just happen to be part of the moment, as much as Friday, a cigarette, my friends or the light…no different to the motorway.

up and down with the sun

Enjoying some moments of peace, listening to Faithless and Coldplay

Life is a lot more settled and stable than my rollercoaster emotions/hormones would have me believe currently…

Walking home as the sun set early this evening gave me that wonderful hopeful sensation of the later evenings to come…Life is good. There is magic and mystery out there for the experiencing.

“Look at the stars”…

I’ve had fun exploring magnified pictures again…I’ve done a couple of pictures that I’m really not fond of 😦 …but the magnified images I Love. I’ve even printed some this time to play with. I’m not sure If I’m going to post pics or slide shows (you know by know though)

I’m wishing you some of the Yellow.

Happy to have my linkrolls back!!
