So guess what our art assignment was? We had to make something out of paper, like paper is the material we make it out of, not just drawing on paper. I got really excited about this one, my art teacher gave me a book to use, it took me a long time to make this, but it was a lot of fun, I actually would love to do something like this again. Technically, this isn't due till next Friday, go figure that art is the only subject I don't procrastinate in. Oh, I think i have algebra homework to do.... meh.
Ok, I know what your thinking, "Whats with the cat? Why is there a cat? Usually birds and butterflies are associated with flowers" Well to answer those questions: I do not know, I was working on flowers and stuff and then somehow I decided 'I'm going to make a cat now' and before I knew it, I was making a cat. I don't own a cat, I'm not even a cat person, I own a bird, but I can't explain my creative impulses, they do what they want.
See, he's like a jungle cat, his name is Raul.
As you may have noticed, I have not posted in a while, that's because I was having a little artist block, it's pretty much over now, you can expect posts more often.

I made this blog with the intention of putting mostly artwork that I draw or paint or whatever. But really, there is no possible way for me to have a blog and not post about riding. You see, although I love art, my truest passion is horseback riding, and it always has been sense I was 4 years old. I haven't ridden in almost 2 years, it feels so good to be back in the saddle. The horse I'm riding? His name is Red (obviously because he is red of course), the camera, although it is really good, new camera, does him no justice, he is gorgeous. His coat is redder in person and soft, he's really muscular, has to be at least 16 hands, maybe taller, he's a thoroughbred gelding, and is built like a perfect hunter horse (hunter is the style I ride). He kind of has a bouncy canter, but that's cool. He was kinda slow sometimes and he reminded me of Dandee (the horse I rode in Washington).
I was expecting to be a bit rusty after the 2 years of equine sobriety, but I wasn't exactly anticipating just how out of shape I was, I was literally huffing after cantering, I mean, I had to catch my breath. Despite the common misunderstandings, riding gives you quite a work out.
And my little sister Julia rides aswell! She is riding an adorable little pony named Luke.
Mike is a really good trainer who actually knows what he's talking about. I'm excited to be starting riding lessons with him!

It has been absolutely beautiful weather lately. Its great to just go outside all day and, you know, blow bubbles, read, draw, hula-hoop, go for a walk, basically just hang out outside while you blast music inside so you can hear it outside (and so can your neighbors). I wish everyday could be like today.
The sketchbook I'm using is one my aunt Beth gave to me last week for Christmas........
She just sent out her Christmas presents, which is fine with me because it's fun opening presents in March, in fact, we should have a lot more present-giving holidays, don't you think? Anyway, here are some other things I drew in the sketchbook. (thanks Beth)
BTW: I'm going to start riding lessons again on Thursday!!! I'm soooo excited!!!!!

If you guessed Zombies, then you really know me!! However, zombie bunnies in a garden chasing rodents was not so far off. However, i was a little late, this was last weeks Illustration Friday topic, but that's because I procrastinated. Oh well. Anyway, the basic idea is that the Zombies spread because they infect other people and make them zombies too. BRAINNNNSSSS

- To spread from person to person;
- To cause to increase in number or amount.
- To grow

This week's Illustration Friday topic is Clumsy
This rider was clumsy and forgot his equitation, he didn't ride his horse to the jump correctly, it seems like he didn't ride his horse at a straight line to the jump and probably forgot to count his strides and his horse was a couple strides off so when the horse got up to the jump he refused. Now, the rider could have stayed on if he hadn't gotten up in his two-point too early and neglected to keep his heels down. He also didn't let go of the reins when he fell over the horse's head. But you know, it was probably just a fluke, I mean he is in a pretty high rated show, so its probably not like he's a bad rider... just this one time he very inconveniently messed up today, it happens to us all, not necessarily resulting in this, but we all mess up our equitation once and a while, but I'm sure he'll be extra careful next time.

For my art class homework assignment we're supposed to draw a chair from observation. Seemed kind of odd, I'm so used to her being so vague about our assignments like: Draw something using inspiration from this word/phrase or this wrapper or this peice of chocolate and then leaving the rest up to us. But yesterday she said: draw a chair in your house from observation with pencil. I'm like, atleast I don't have to spend so much time thinking about what to draw, and It wasn't hard to pick which chair I was going to draw. Its the chair i spend hours reading in. :)

So this just started out as a square that turned into a box... then it was a jack in the box... then, while jack thought he was safe tucked away in his little box, waiting to pounce at the next victim who dared turn the handle and that played the song and opens the top of the box for him to spring, the teddy bear took the spear and through it and it pierced right through the box and skewered poor Jack!
