I love the month of September! Cooler nights, crisp air, that fall smell. It's invigorating. Happy Sept. 1st Artist Friends.

I decided to set a goal for myself in the art department. Of course I want to get better and be the best I can but that is too vague for a goal. The one thing that would really make me feel great is to have a painting of mine shown at my bank. They show a local artists painting one at the time at my bank. (Sometimes it's great and sometimes not so much so in my opinion). The way I'm going to go about it is first to stumble on a composition of my own that I absolutely love. Haven't had that happen yet...though I have come close on a couple. Then I'm going to reproduce that picture on a large canvas, like maybe 28x45 or even 31 x 50 (these cost a lot). All the paintings I see at the bank are large like that. Then I will talk to the folks at the bank and request to have my painting shown. Oh Yeah...I should make up a business card to put with the painting. Now that would really give me one heck of an ego boast. So that's my goal right now as far as art goes.

This morning I painted the first coat on the vase in my picture. I put in blue for shading but I think I made the vase look too blue instead of the intended white so I see another coat going on after it dries.

I'm probably going to start another picture while I'm waiting on it to dry. I'm going to do more flowers just because I'm really enjoying doing them.

So everyone have a wonderful day and share it with all of us. You young folks with all your energy doing so much for others be sure to take time for yourself.

Nothing crisp here yet tho it did drop about 10 degrees putting us at about 100-105.
Cool goals. Can't wait to see your new piece.
My artistic goal... Just improve.

Our days are still getting up there in the 90's, but the nights are very pleasant and the mornings are great. But about 10am it's hot.

Our nights still don't leave the 100's yet. And now the monsoons are back so it's humid.

For some reason I am loving that it is September.

Maybe it is just knowing that cooler days will be coming soon.

So now I have two works in progress going on. Both are at a stage that I can't go any further on them until they dry. So I guess maybe I'm done painting for today....maybe not...I've been thinking again about taking one of my old acrylic paintings and update it with oil touchups.

Hi Hi!

Already September! I can't believe it!
Hmmm nothing special here, I'm with no energy to draw lately. When I'm in my top is when I finish my gym session, but I can't handle the pencil right in order to draw well, and it's also the only free time I'm having so... I'm a bit stuck right now.

Yo Terry, that's a cool goal :3 It'll be very interesting seeing how you accomplish it ^^ I know you can do it! :)

Cricket, I'm very happy is september too, I want this year to end! And this month one of my favourite rappers is taking out a new disc so... yeaah!

Eddie, I hate humid nights they don't let me sleep correctly and my knees hurt a lot when is humid!

Melody, that crazy home stuff doesn't sound fun :/ Hope everything gets better!

Am I the only weirdie who drinks cold Choco in winter .-. ?
