I can't believe April has gone by so fast! We had some nice rain, so that was very nice.
Since my last update, I've finished my portrait montage, and have started a few other new portraits - Sherlock and Moriarty from BBC's Sherlock, Lauren Daigle, and Tom Baker as the 4th regeneration in Doctor Who (He is my favorite regeneration.). The finished montage is below.
I'm really excited about how much my art has improved over the past few years that I've been drawing portraits. Below is a photo I posted on Instagram of some of the portraits I've drawn through those years.
|L to R: Rose Tyler and Tenth Doctor, Lecrae, NF, Angel montage.|
So, yeah, I've definitely improved! I'm still really proud of my portrait of NF, just because I hadn't done any drawing in quite some time then, and that one had turned out better than anything I'd ever drawn before. Drawing hair is still quite a challenge, but I think that's getting a little easier as I practice. But I think David Tennant would be disgraced if he ever saw my rendition of his hair. ;)
Aside from art...
I'm going to have another sibling!!! I am so, so excited! Baby Ten is due this Fall. Mom wanted me to crochet a baby blanket for #10, so I've started that. It's a blanket composed of many Granny Triangles, and is very easy to work up. I found the pattern HERE. We chose a Fall color scheme for the yarn (I'm using Lion Brand yarn for this project.).
I've released a brand NEW e-magazine on the DiverseReflections Store, so hop on over and check it out - it's a FREE download!
I attended TeenPact again this year, and it was super fun! This year's Alumni track was probably my favorite so far - The American criminal justice system. Also, I got to meet the TeenPact-meme-famous PD, Elijah Knapp, who very nearly became the King of our state (the state would have been a constitutional monarchy). ;) Awesome guy - my favorite PD so far!
Also, I met a young lady at the Church we've found in our new town, so I'm hoping that it will be the start of a new friendship - I have so much trouble finding friends sometimes. Most of the people I know here are from the Deaf community, so I'm definitely learning more Sign, which is fantastic!
Well, that's about it for now! I'll be updating again soon, so keep checking back and subscribe so you'll never miss a post. Check out my photography business and blog, Diverse Reflections Photography too!
Have a lovely last day of April!
