Hello! It has been awhile since I posted something. Thats because I've been lazy, working at American House, working on art stuff, and just been down in the dumps to be honest. But now I'm better. I like to keep it that way.
So we started a new project in my editorial class. We have to create an image for an article called. Oubliette. Oubliette means a secret dungeon with access only through a trapdoor in it's ceiling. The article is about a story of a girl who has a mother who has some sort of mental disorder and she locks her daughter in the attic. Her father doesn't know about it until he comes home and finds her. The daughter's parents split up but the father takes care of her in the hospital and when she is finally able to live on her own, the daughter goes and visits her mother and spends time with her. There is more to the story but thats the gist of it.
So I'm working on an illustration of a scene in the story after the dad finds his daughter in the attic he takes her to their favorite diner called, Conrad's. And the dad is upset and applogizes for her mother's behavior and I have the daughter just sitting and taking in everything that happened. Can you imagine what it must have felt like to be locked in the attic for hours and hours?!! She tried to get out but failed and so she just sat and waited for someone to find her. Her mom wasn't a loving mom either.
What I decided to do was have the viewer see the two of them inside the diner through the window. I will have CONRAD's in neon lights but not realllly bright. It takes place in October so it's going to be a little cloudy outside so it contrasts with the bright window from the light inside the diner. I'm going to paint it in watercolor.
So, there you have it. I hope to have it finished in a couple weeks. I also have been working on my devotional on heartbreak. I think I'm going to need some help writing it and making sure I make sense. haha.
In other news, I really wish I had time to take tap dancing lessons I miss that. And I wish I had time to try and learn a piano piece. I want to learn a piece called, Radio Ballet by Eluvium. Go listen to it! Its beautiful!
I am an artist who enjoys the outdoors and living in Michigan where I can live in all four seasons in one day. I love cake or anything that is sweet!
