"60 and Main" and Other Pieces

This week has been so busy, because of musical rehearsal and bustling to get homework done by the end of the quarter. I am ecstatic to tell you that yesterday and today were great work days for me. I received an A on my creative writing journal, I started and finished an amazing little painting plus two other art pieces, and I have been nominated by my CR teacher as students of the month for my hard work! I don't have school tomorrow, and so today is an even bigger relief than normal.

"60 and Main"
This is a street intersection in my hometown, done in the amazing style of Leonid Afremov. This piece turned out so well that I have decided to make 'Street Scenes' my concentration in my art class. That means half of my pieces will be based on that theme. I got a bunch of compliments on this piece, and had two people even ask me to do a painting for them, and they would pay me. Reasons for my switch of concentration? I think it should be apparent.

"Figures in Sketch"
These are figure drawings of other students in my art class. I apologize that the picture is not very focused, but you get the general idea. I experimented with new kinds of pencil, and chalk to complete this piece. It was a bit empty, so I added floral themes for each figure, and had them intermingle.

My third piece will be displayed on Lola Everyday, tomorrow. ;)

Tomorrow, new playlist!
Have a great Friday!

Okay, before I read your post I definitely thought that you got those pictures off of some random website. That is, until I squinted my eyes and saw your name scribbled in the bottom corner. Um... amazing work! To me, you're already famous :p
