Yesterday sucked.

I didn’t do well on my math test… AGAIN and I vowed that it would be the last time. I spent 14 hours studying algebra and I will continue to do so until I can pass these test without a problem. I also plan to spend the thanksgiving break getting ready for next months geometry. It’s fucking war against failure and I will not lose.

Now, with that out of the way, I do have a design in art theory class and I need to pass that too, so Sundays focus was on the acrylic painting due tomorrow. I mentioned on my last blog that I was going to try to do it on plexi glass, but I wasn’t able to get any in time so instead I’m going to do it on the card stock they gave me for the project.

First thing I did was to let the math go and get in the artist mood. I put on my red beret and it was such a nice day outside I set up a little painters corner on the patio.

My thinking was that it might give me some inspiration to start my painting.

It helped, so I made up my mind and starting mixing my paint.

I’m misleading you on the idea that I thought it up on the fly, you can actually see the sketch pad in the background

I think most people who read this will agree that robots are always a good choice.

I didn’t get very far before I decided to move the operation to the dada art club meeting hosted by one of my instructors. That’s right, I went to class on my only day off.

I had a lot of fun there, it was great to work on art free form restrictions, even if it was technically an assignment. I felt like I could do it anyway I wanted, and just have fun with it. I didn’t take any pictures while I was working on it, but here’s how it came out.

Pretty good right? I also tried my hand at abstract art.

I’m not going to tell you what it means, but it does have a meaning.

Here’s me with both my masterpieces. I think its fitting that my artists beret is a military one, that totally nails my whole artist style.
