This week has been tiring week. Usually, I'm all lively and flowing with ideas and concepts. But this week...I'm so out of it. I blame the lack of sun!😒 I want to be doing more than I am right now.

My first workday in ceramics was CRAP! I can't even throw cylinders right now!  And I have to make shot glasses and bowls, which I have never done. 😒 sigh...

For both painting and drawing, I get propose what I want to do. Of course, I'm going to continue on with my Totalis experimentation, as much as I can. I think I'm going to do the Totalis bible for   Problems in Drawing but have no idea what I'm going to do for Painting 3. My brain in just stuck right now.

I have life drawing. It's a bit more intensive than the one I've taken before. I needed to relearn the human form and thankfully I got right back in the niche of it! 😋

Hopefully, I get back in the swing of things this week.

Tomorrow is MLK Day!!! So if you can go out and see Selma, you should go!! I can't, so I'll be up and in the studio at the regular time. Revealing in the freedoms afforded me. I am truly thankful for the sacrifices made to grant me these opportunities and I mean to not waste them.

Much Love,
Hema❤️

So, I purposefully didn't post anything last week. I didn't have much to talk about. EXCEPT my family and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the Bone vs DC fight. We're all Team Bones so we were happy with the outcome. Not the best fight ever though. But it was fun spending quality time with the fame.

Tomorrow is the first day of class!!! 😬🎉🎉😲 kind of excited, not thrilled at having to wake up at 7:30am Monday through Thursday, I have Fridays off.

I went to the studio earlier today to put back most of the stuff I took home and remember where I put stuff. I was amazed to find that most of the paints I mixed for my last painting project were still wet!!!  It's only the darker ones I may have to remix. I really do want to finish this mural, or at least get farther than I am now.AND I check on the black walnut liquid I made in November and it is now dark and beautiful (I had to do the evaporation method instead of boiling). I transferred it from the plastic bottle it was in into a class one (so the acid of the nuts won't eat through the plastic). I can't wait to use it.😊 I tried to crack open one of the nut...I'm going to have to chisel those bad boys open!! Just hammering them does little to nothing!😒

Mondays and Wednesdays are my 9am-6pm days, Tuesdays and Thursdays are 9:30-4. So I'm going to be going back to MWF posting. Not this week but probably next week. I want to get back in my class and studio grooves! With ceramics and sculpture AND painting this semester, I'm really going to have to work time and rest management so I don't stress myself our. I'm definitely going to have to put in an effort to do fun stress-less things.

I have some ideas of stuff I want to make, most are sculptural, but it would take luck to have them fall into projects for my classes! So that'll just mean I have to work on them in my free time which definitely goes back to time-fun/rest management.

But, I'm looking forward to this semester! It is definitely going to test my creativity and ingenuity.

Here's to a great semester!!!🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎊🎊🎊🎊🎊😁

Much Love,
Hema❤️

I hope everyone had an amazing holiday, I know I did!

I aced my art history paper, got straight 'A's again this semester. I got some much needed clothes, coat, and shoes, and a new backpack. I also FINALLY got to see Dracula Untold!! It was really good. It wasn't as brutal as I thought it would be, because it WAS suppose to be about Vlad the Impaler, but the action was enjoyable.

Had a lot great family time!

Finishing up a commission (if it could stay dry long enough for me to spray paint the frame 😒) and got another scheduled for the summer, when I actually have time to work on stuff.

That's pretty much it.

Have a great New Years everybody!!!!!😙🎊🎋🎉🎋🎉🎉🎋🎉🎊🎊🎊🎉

Much Love,
Hema❤️

I am so tired!! I've been sleeping so much and been eating like crazy and I don't like it! I must have been more stressed than I thought I was. 😕😒

I haven't really done much, even thought I need to. I have been thinking over some new works I hope to do next semester.

Legend of Korra is over, sad to see it go. I enjoyed the progressive ending (though I did feel it was a bit pandering, like they did it just because we said they wouldn't) but as a hardcore Makkorra shipper, I still want Ava-fire babies! 😭😭😭 it makes me sad my otp didn't sail at the end. The end wasn't what I expected, a knock-down drag-out fight! I guess season 3 spoiled me. Kind of a let down.

Nothing much else to talk about. I've really just been sleeping so far.

So, happy holidays and have great family and creative time!!!!

Much Love,
Hema ❤️

Yepers, been here for a day now and I'm about ready to go back to work!! 😜I'm still going to get plenty of sleep though. Night is a lot more freeing for me when I'm at home. I have the atmosphere to myself. It's much easier to think.

Welp, exams are done for everyone (in college). I hope all of you did well! 😊 I can't check my grades until Monday afternoon but unless I totally crapped out on my paper I history, I believe I'll have all A's.

I got all my Christmas presents done, cleaned my new studio before I left, and brought most of the things i needed home. I always forget some thing! 😔😝 just a circle template this time...so far.

During this break I plan to finish my sports commission, I may have a mural commission, and work on some more talismans and jewelry.

BIG NEWS!!

I won a materials award for next semester, $250 to an art store!! (I'm actually splitting it, $150 to Dick Blick and $100 at Walmart, I really need an external hard drive, my flash drives are reaching their limits).I'm so excited.  There are quite a few materials I want to work with: leather (a big one!), soapstone & alabaster, and a new material I found called raffia. And of course I'm getting some much needed paint, though it's the liquitex 48 sampler kit and a few tubes of color I really need.

I was lucky enough to find some raffia at Walmart and got a pack! I wanted to test it's strength and durability before I got a bulk pack from Dick Blick. So far I love it!!! It's a LOT more malleable than I thought it would be. I think it will be perfect for some projects I have in mind.😊 I just can not wait for next semester! This will be my first art haul in a LONG time.

That's it for now!

Much Love,
Hema ❤️
