Daily Chat April 16
Good morning all!

I hope you guys are doing great and are able to get a little art in today..for those of you who have been down and out and unable to get any drawings or paintings done I hope things improve for you quickly.

I woke up with a massive headache and what feels like a headcold..though I don't could be allergies or related to pressure changes. Its a cold day here today. I took some meds so hoping it mellows out enough so I can draw at lunch.

I started my next drawing yesterday. I am afraid this one is going to be a challenge. The horse is at a funky angle and the kid ... well people aren't my favorite things to draw ... I have to do well on this so am going to take my time and try to do it right. Maybe I will share it today..maybe's in what I would call a "hot mess" stage. It looks really really bad. I need to work on my lines a bit more I think. I don't usually have this many issues with the outline. Maybe because I feel pressured to make this one special that it's not working out so well. I need to back up and calm down and approach it like my other drawings.

I just got asked by another person if I would do a drawing for him so, at the moment, after I finish this drawing, I have 3 more drawings lined up to do. This is my last one that will involve a horse though. The rest are just portraits of people. It's ironic that as much as I do NOT like drawing portraits it's what I get asked to do the most. I hate turning people away though and try to do my best for them.

Terry..I look forward to seeing more of your work today. I just adore your goat..I wouldn't mess with those horns if I was you. Maybe tweaking the nose a bit. The nose isn't folded..that's just shadows..I see that now. You are doing a stellar job. Keep it up.

I would say 80% of my drawings are in this state until approximately the half way stage. I am so tempted to just bin them at times. Usually I just stop working on them for a while, and when I come back, my attitude seems to have change. My Jessica Biel & Manny Pacquiao drawings both got started and left for quite some time before completion.

Really looking forward to your latest piece. :)

Morning Chanda and Carl. I've been reading posts all morning. I love that the forum is getting busier and what a bunch of great people are participating. It's a joy to be on this site.

I have a busy day planned. I need to go grocery shopping for the weekend an tonight I'm going to watch my oldest granddaughter in a soft-ball game. I'm having my Granddaughters over this weekend so I need a ton of food in the house. Those girls are constantly eating but are all as thin as tooth picks (so un-American -- LOL).

Chanda totally agree with you on the nose and that's why I love to post works in progress because you see things early in the game and at that stage they are fixable. In fact I worked on the nose a bit last night before going to bed.

I got my new glasses on Monday and I do see more detail now. Ugh, why did I wait so long.

So no drawing for me today. My indecisive kid! He has been saying over and over and over that he no longer wants to be in problem. One less thing I have to worry about. Then last night he decides that he has changed his mind and wants to stay in it. I told him that if he stays in it he needs to be committed to it. He needs to do the projects and be fully in it. He agreed. So I called the extension office this morning and the deadline for filling out his release is TODAY. I had to rush over there at lunch to get his release signed. Little stinker.

Hope you both have had a good day so far. Sounds a little busy for you Terry.
