Art #66

Saturday (8/30/14) I hiked Twin/Sculpture/Hidden Falls.

It’s a few miles of what used to be rushing waterfalls in Southwest Austin.

An extension of Barton Creek Greenbelt.

Don’t get me wrong, even though it’s basically dry, it’s still an absolute gorgeous hike.

I got “lost” for a few hours (2p-6p), just wandering around.

Laying down in the shade or sun.

Listening to the wind, my breath, the leaves, and the phantom waterfalls.

I hiked probably close to 12 miles.

& I took my sketch book with me as my companion.

Art #54-62?

wow, I haven’t posted any art on my blog since November 2012.

what’s in this post in no way sums up all of the art I have created between then & now, but it’s a start.

& I’m pretty sure they are in chronological order.

(:

 

#54 – wall art I made for my room when I first moved into my apartment, July 2013 – I used cardboard & paint – the font was found in Microsoft Word & blown-up, and the lips are a blown-up version of my own kiss print (see #59).

 

#55 – from my sketchbook – a reminder to focus on myself because happiness comes from within – I used multiple pens.

 

#56 – from my sketchbook – when I was overwhelmed with love for my boyfriend at the time – I used multiple pens.

 

#57 – a sketch I made after me & said boyfriend parted ways – made with ballpoint pens & the back of a SoLD worksheet.

 

#58 – I didn’t create this one – it’s a beautiful piece I purchased from my friend Emily.

 

#59 – another reminder to myself – I used the back of SoLD worksheet, my kiss print with lipstick, and ballpoint pen.

 

#60-62 – this is actually one of my favs that I’ve made for someone else – my friend Kaitlin is having a little boy named Silas Orion Colby and her baby shower was this last weekend – when I was going through her registry on Amazon.com, I saw a little owl poster that was cute, but I thought I could re-create my own version that would be personalized for Silas – I made up an owl design and used an old map book & some paint, but the awesome part is that in the center of each owl beak is a town with part of the baby’s name – the red is “Silas” (AL), the green is “Orion” (MI), and the orange-brown is “Colby” (WI).
