Slight hiatus

Forgive me for my slight hiatus, but I have a business law exam on Wednesday. This will be a quick post... I'm taking a break from studying. 

It's getting to the point where I've been studying for so long that I just want to get it over with and I don't even care what grade I get. I just wish I could study all the information like this...


This would be the perfect way to learn about contracts and bailments. 

Anyway...

I'm really starting to dig sponge paintings. I KNOW, I KNOW...so 20th century...but the way I'm doing it is more more fun that bland pastels people...

I'm almost finished with one little ditty I've been working on, which is 4 seperate 10x10 sponged canvases, each with a different color (which is actually 4 or 5 similar colors sponged together). When I'm finished, I'll have an orange one, a purple one, a green one and a blue one. I'm looking forward to the finished project. It's a great way to take a study break... besides blogging of course... 


I found this lovely picture when I searched for sponged paintings...check out the sassy little one on the bottom right...

Then when I was looking up paintings, I remembered these awesome sidewalk chalk drawings by Julian Beever. How cool are these? This man has some serious talent.





These are all done with sidewalk chalk on FLAT surfaces! Wowza!

Monday is over ladies and gentlemen... hooray! Now onto the rest of our week...

Oh! And make sure to comment and tell me which painting you like better on the post below this one!!! Thanks :)

I used to be the queen of sponge painting. No white or black shirt were safe when I was around.

Over the summer in Atl. I got see one being drawn. I stood there for forever. I was in a daze, watching him draw the pic. They are absolutely awesome!!!

Good luck with studying!!!
