That’s right! As of this Monday night that just passed I am done with Uni for the year. I spent all of last week finishing off artworks for my folio and writing up a few assignments. I’m relieved that it’s all over, it’ll be great to have a bit of time off, but I know in a few weeks I’ll be missing uni like crazy.
I’m working on keeping myself busy so I don’t miss it too much though. I’ve just started volunteering at a local gallery and in a few weeks I’ll start my Christmas Job – decorating custom Christmas balls! I’m going to be just covered in glitter constantly. Of course I’m also still drawing pictures all the time, I’ve got a bunch of pages in my art diary to scan up. I’ve also been toying with the idea of having a crack at NaNoWriMo and I want to start working on my crochet again (I spent a few hours tonight just untangling yarn). No rest for the wicked right?
I was kind of silly and forgot to take photos of all of my finished works for the year, I’ll just have to do that when I get my grades back and the email letting me know when to pick up my artworks.
I did remember to take this one photo while I was finishing things off.
On the left we have “La Madamoiselle” who was from the week we were working with a limited palette using only complimentary colours. On the right is a painting that was created using a monochromatic black created from mixing other colours, and of course greys by then adding white to it. I can’t remember what I named that one. I’ll find out when I get it back. I probably named it something like “skull and candle” or maybe “still life”. I’m not always original with my titles.
Well look at the time! I should probably head to bed soon, it’s going to be a struggle keeping some kind of regular sleeping schedule now that I really don’t have to!
