Dear Internet, and mom.
So you know those skills you have in your dreams, and only then? No? Just me?
Anyway, I dream that I can draw anything. If I need to sketch out something, or copy what I see, it is simple.
So I have come to the conclusion that I am dreaming. I will check my blog in the morning and this will not be here.
I should not be able to draw like this when I'm awake. I should post the bad pics to prove my point.

Princess day

As promised the sketching began.  I am not a trained artist.  My shortcomings have been assisted by a light box and pre-made sketches.  Today is light box free.  I made seven sketches, and only three didn't make me cringe.  Two I can work on and make the eyes less scary.  But one of them is beyond saving, and the last I will consider reviving.
So my work for the day in one pretty collage.  Courtesy of pic monkey technology.
Purchase The Art of the Disney Princess and see what works I was staring at as I tried to learn from those better than I.

I knew what was under the tree. And by under I mean next to because it was huge. I have a real drafting table!!! My living space is cramped to put it politely but I made it work. The pencil tray was busted so it will just taunt me for now.
The brother gave me a Disney Princess art book. Inspiring! Which princess will I tackle? Dunno yet.

Gypsy Freesian

Going through old pics on Facebook. (I'm deleting them from there, I have more control here.)
Came from a photo of a Gypsy Freesian horse that I made for a friend. Plain background yells at me from the past. 
"Why did you leave me so naked?" It moans.
"I am sorry." I apologized. "I was young then! I will not make a mistake like that again."

Sick day

In order to keep my Facebook from turning into a diary I'll rant here.
Woke up with the voice of a chain smoking lounge singer earned a day home.
The artwork of Belle getting the library went over really well!  Her dad loved it as well and I think I may get another commission.  Which means looking up Woodie cars.  I love a challenge.

This day will be full of party prep for my annual Christmas Craft Party. (Lot of baking.) And less glamorous tasks of laundry and finding the other half to the most amazing socks ever.  (The last one is a must!)

First Christmas present is also in my possession.  The most glorious purse ever.  It even smells glorious.  I don't have pics yet, but trust me.

Unfinished Art Project checklist
Sleeping Beauty (Forest creatures)
Eve (Rethink)
Midsummer Night's Dream (Rethink)
Cinderella (She is a hot mess.)

Need to make an angel (The sketch is awesome, I'm hoping it works)

My first post without a picture.  Wow.
