I’m going to get back on track, I swear! Because life is more fun when I’m always working on art. And I get so disappointed in myself when I’m not. Here is a drawing I worked on, off-and-on, for a while. Watercolor and pen on paper. Lots of time-consuming detail and I’m not sure if it’s finished. This is one of my favorite necklaces. Love the color and how chunky and exotic it looks. Yes, it’s a bit heavy and a few strands of hair usually get caught in it but so worth it. It makes me feel like I’m an interesting person when I wear it. I guess I should be rocking that thing every day!

Black and White Necklace
Well gosh, I am such a delinquent blogger. Not that you are clamoring to hear from me but the whole idea of my blog is to draw and post stuff on a regular basis. Certainly more than once a month. But never mind, time to jump start it again, get back into the swing. Here is a simple necklace I made from rustic glass beads from the ReStore and a length of black suede cord. I drew it on this vintage ledger paper for added interest, using a black felt pen, white acrylic paint and watercolor pencils for the shading. It is too big for the scanner so I took pictures and then got obsessed with the photo editing trying to get it to look like it does in real life. Spent way too long on that. Geez, as if it mattered. I hate my inability to decide and select. Turns everything into a monumental ordeal. UGH. Sometimes I hate myself. Time to cut into the chocolate cake!
