Spent one of my last days back in Calgary with some of my favorite people. Went for some Thai food on 17th, and followed up with coffee. Then I (finally) got to check out the Peace Bridge. Can’t believe I haven’t gone to see it before! The lights and everything are spectacular at night. The wind picked up when we were there though, so it was absolutely freezing. I’ll have to make a point to go back there sometime when its warmer.
But on that note, Calgary really has been too cold (or i’m just a weakling now… hmm). Blankets have been my best friends recently. I guess this is it telling me that its time to head south again.
Back in Peoria in a couple days! Here’s to hoping I still have enough time to keep up with blogging frequently while back at school.

More sketchbook doodles! I’ve got a couple days left to draw/paint my heart away, and then its back to Peoria for school again. And who knows how much time i’ll have for that when classes start up!
+ new painting will be up soon - about 15 minutes of work away from completion!

Sketchbook doodles! One thing that I love so much about them is that they’re a great way to occupy a few hours and just let my mind wander.
One week left of winter break until I head back to school. I’ve been throwing all this free time i’ve had so far into drawing and painting. Just finished an oil painting (which is the first painting i’ve done since graduating high school!), and actually immediately started another one the day after. Feels like its going to be difficult to switch my brain back in to a numbers/math mindset for when my classes start up again since its been so much on the artsy side recently!
First time painting again since finishing Art IB in highschool. Its been a while! The interesting thing though, is that even though I haven’t done any paintings since high school, I can still see some growth comparing this piece to my old work.
Started this painting this a couple weeks ago, and made decent progress in just a couple days at was pretty much at a completion point. But then I hit a roadblock, and wasn’t pleased with anything I did with the background, so I left it for about two weeks. Ideas just came to mind today again, so I spent a couple hours this afternoon finishing it up. I am actually very pleased with the outcome!
