Poor Matt is under the kitchen sink as I write this -- trying to replace the completely dead garbage disposal unit. And this is after helping me with hours of clean up last night and this morning following a flooded bathroom! He is certainly earning his hubby points!
Fortunately, I managed to get everything cleaned up in time to play with powder a little. :o)
The first thing I attempted was my 15 minute drawing of something I ate yesterday. I chose a grapefruit for this exercise. I was not entirely successful, clearly I need to improve on shading (and other things)!
Here is my pathetic little grapefruit:
I am happier with my piece for today's challenge. We have been encouraged to make three glass powder pictures of something white over the next three days. I have seen some beautiful pictures of dandelions done by other glass artists and have been longing to make one myself. I confess to being more than a little bit intimidated, however.
Despite that, I pulled out a big ol" piece of white opalescent glass and went to work. Next time I need to use a smaller piece of glass, because I ended up with a giant dandelion that pretty much covered the whole sheet. Quite a bit bigger than something I would want to save and fire :op That said, I actually like what I came up with.
Here is my monster of a dandelion:
I think I've learned a few things and am looking forward to tomorrow!
