A Few Things I'm Working On
After spending almost the whole day on the computer blog hopping, checking Facebook, and Twitter, reading my class notes, etc. I finally got sick and tired of sitting in one spot staring at a monitor.
I was starting to feel anxious in a way that meant I needed to create. The only problem was I didn't feel like it. So I sat and wasted even more time contemplating whether or not I should paint, when finally after some Twitter encouragement, I decided what the heck, and gave it a go.
I'm working on the middle piece right now, but it is drying so I gave myself permission to take a break (like I needed one), and post this real quick.
So the picture you see above, are 3 WIP's. I've been hanging on to them for a while now, and just can't seem to finish them. The bird on the right, I'm kind of skeptical about since it looks like he has a disease. Which reminds me of tapioca pudding. Which to me looks like a disease. I can't eat that stuff with all those little bumps floating around it grosses me out. Always has. I don't eat rice pudding either for the same reason. Yep I know I'm strange.
Anyway, the bird looks like a flapper chicken with a disease worthy of Bewitched, something along the lines of "purple glitter spot syndrome".
But I am really curious to see how these guys turn out. The middle and left one, I have specific plans for. It will be interesting to see if they turn out like I am hoping.
In other news, I'm sure you have noticed that I changed the look of my blog. That's another thing I spent far to much time on today. I really wanted to make it a 3 column layout, and after fighting with the new blogger design center for a hour, and finding out my blog template no longer exists (what the heck?), I finally found a proper tutorial. So I got it done, but now I don't know if I like it.
The blog looks really busy to me now, and I'm not sure how good that is. In one way it is awesome to have the extra room, but on the other I liked the simplicity of the two column look. Decisions, decisions. What do you think? Is it too much?
Although if you say it needs to go back to two column, I don't have a clue how to change it again. Doh!
