315/365 – Making Wishes

**Saturday, November 20

Yesterday I was working on my printmaking project, which involved using paint markers on tracing paper. I was bored, and procrastinating other work, so I drew a star, and immediately got an idea for a picture. Originally, I was going to hang these in a different way, and I was going to do it outside. But, I had this wire out from teaching on Monday, and I got the idea to hang them using curled wire. It took me so long to finish it all that I didn’t have enough daylight to take the outside, or figure out where I could hang them. So, I decided to just try using the light over my kitchen table. This is by far the most effort I have put into a picture for a long, long time. And for the most part I am pretty happy with how it came out. It isn’t exactly what I had in mind, and I may at some point try my original idea, but for now, here are the stars.

Oh, and Whitney and I decided it looked kind of cool so it is going to be left on the light for now, haha.

231/365 – Scarred

Blah. That is how I am feeling and how I feel about this picture.

My knee is taking forever to heal. It is still super swollen (this is the smallest it has been, and it has been 3 weeks since surgery), and is still quite painful. This is the best the scar has looked though, out of the 3 times that it has been cut open. So that is a bonus I guess.

I was just messing around with textures since I couldn’t think of anything else to take a picture of or any other way to edit this.

143/365 – Shine On

I was so happy with how this turned out. It was kind of a random, rushed idea because I was helping Susannah on a studio project. Plus, this is straight out of camera (SOOC), which I love.

Also, it has been brought o my attention on multiple occasions that a lot of my pictures have grass, and glass in them. Which is true, because I love both of those things. So I apologize if things get repetitive.
