Hello, my friends!
I am so excited. I had a birthday two days ago. Usually, birthday’s are okay but nothing special. I am not a tiny person so I don’t like many clothes. We are on a budget so extravagant gifts don’t interest me. Most of the time I don’t get anything too special. This birthday was so simple but wonderful. My husband has been so supportive of my going back into art and writing. As you can see, I am slowly building an art and writing collections. My husband talked with me extensively about what I needed to accomplish it. Then knowing that we could not buy all the markers that I needed from on brand, he asked me what other alternative brands I would want. He bought me an 80-piece set of those markers and behind the scenes bought me a small set of the great markers to start off my great collection. What a thoughtful man. So, here is a picture of the bouquet of markers he got me.
Isn’t it beautiful? It is a mix of Ohuhu markers, Copic skin colored markers (the great collection) and Copic blender markers.
That’s the gift. Here is my gift to y’all. I hope it is a gift. This is my first drawing in marker with blending.
Does that bring a smile to your face? I hope so. Can’t you just imagine a child wanting a lollipop that big? And the dog helping himself to what he can. I loved how the image turned out. I know it isn’t perfect. It was the first time I used some of my skills.
Here is the newest news. Starting Monday, my daughter and I are taking courses at a professional art school. We are absolutely excited. Time to shine and step up to something wonderful.
Back to the drawing. At first, I did not like it. Therefore, I redrew it in and colored it in colored pencil. Here is the result of that.
A little bit of difference. What do you think? Which on do you like the most?
Well, that is it for today. Have a good day, my friend.
