Sunday morning, December 14, 2014 (only 11 more days to go)

well it is another Sunday morning....and my typical Sunday shadow of sadness hangs over me once again. Today I went through a bag of things my mom had given me that grandma had kept of things I had given to her over the years..mostly just small pics of Noah and cards....I had kept it unopened in my room all this time partly because I was not ready to go through all of that yet. I guess maybe I still wasn't ready to go through it yet.....because while a couple of things made me smile.....I had no idea when I got down to the bottom of the bag grandma's slippers would be in there. That was my tipping point. I am sure mom told me she stuck them in there back this summer after grandma died......but it probably went in 1 ear and right out my other because I don't remember it. I seem to not remember most things from the past that hurt me or apparently were hard for me to handle. I guess to cope. I am weird. Anyway....I really miss grandma. I am thankful for all I currently have in my life but I still really miss having her so close by I could pop in for visits every week. Now I am really in the pit of despair so I am going to shower and get myself busy doing something....and get out at some point today. Neither Noah nor I have wanted to get out much this week at all....especially once it gets dark. Maybe we are both weird. (and while grandma did not wear these often before she stopped wearing them....I remember seeing her wear them but most of all..they still SMELL like her house...I will likely keep them in the bag for a long time as even the bag smells like grandma)

Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat...........well...maybe not





This year we put the trees up early....like 2 weeks before Thanksgiving early..lol. I think we have a tree in every room....and we are really enjoying them. I realized I have not posted anything for a while...and I need to get back here and do it from time to time more regularly. I am working on some art projects and been busy with work and other things around here..so have skimped on my time on this blog. I hope everyone has been enjoying their lives and making wonderful memories!

my final 2 faces for 29 Faces in September (since I counted wrong)


I did these pretty rough....sort of hurried them along. Not really satisfied with them but I am stopping. I have 2 other art projects to begin so I have to let this one go and move on. I used old photos of my dad and my mom for my models this time. Messy charcoal again. I have done a lot of charcoal for this project but not sure I am any better at it.

okay..charcoal messy charcoal...Sung Joon, Kim Yoo-jung and Lee Jong-suk (all Korean actors/actress) 

the painting one I just dabbed a ton of different colored acrylic paint on black paper...pressed another sheet of paper on top....pulled it apart...added Inka Gold..used the end of the paintbrush to scrape in primitive features and then added more paint

29 Faces in September Day 21 (but might be days 22, 23 and 24 since I have FOUR faces lol)

I started out with charcoal but it did not blend very well...and then I used pencil...I ended up with so much graphite on this that the paper got rough....grainy....this is a sketch of me and 3 of my sibs when we were very young
