Tree Mirror

Published February 26, 2014 by konchk

017I failed to let you all in on my bucket list adventures last week.  Alas, I had many thought-out plans on what I would accomplish, but all fell through. I ended up having to find something to do last minute. No worries, however…I did indeed crossed something off that darling list of mine. I don’t quite enough time to get into it today, but it was pretty awesome considering I hadn’t planned it out very thoroughly. And you can trust me on that…

One thing I sort of felt like showing was a little something I had done during one of my art classes in high school. Earlier I had mentioned being dubbed Tree Girl, just because of how I couldn’t help drawing them in everything. I used every opportunity to pencil out some lovely trees in ma art. In particular, for this surreal-abstract thingymabobby, I drew lots of them. I can’t really quite remember what my reasoning was, something about there being good and bad in everything, sort of like a ying-yang type ordeal. But yeah, gave me a reason to draw more trees.

Hope you all likey 🙂

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Published February 18, 2014 by konchk

1. Audrey Hepburn. I am proud of sharing the same personality type with this lovely lady (INFP). However, if I had her grace/poise/pleasantness/perfectness/intelligence/gentleness/humor/smile I would be the happiest soul that ever lived.

2. The all-time best movie ever (coincidentally, one that the lovely woman I adore acted in)…Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

3. My obnoxious, gregarious, beautiful, quirky sister, Deb. One word encompasses all the amazing things she is: AWESOME. I love her more than anything in the world.

4. Art. I absolutely-dutely love looking at and creating something beautiful/meaningful.

5. Cheesecake. Would you believe me if I told you that this was my nickname all through high school. If not, poo on you. Because it was.

6. Dogs. Preferably German Shepherds. I think dogs (especially the beloved German Shepherd) are more loyal, loving, caring, and even smarter than actual people…no offense. My best friend in middle/high school was ma old puppy Jack.

7. Glasses. I think they’re awesome. On people. On me. I wish I was slightly blind at times so I could wear them more often. But I guess my fake ones will have to do…

8. Coffee…this is a new one. I’m trying to not need any every morning. It is getting rather difficult.

9. Bon Jovi. Aerosmith. ABBA. Goo Goo Dolls. The Beatles. The Grass Roots. Queen. Red Hot Chili Peppers. ACDC. And most definitely, Steven Tyler. I flipping love old-ish music. What can I say? I’m an old soul 🙂

10. My friends: Melany, Lacey, Nate, Matthew, Noodles, Mason, Lando, and most definitely Brittany-Frittany. They are freaking awesome and don’t know what I would do without them.

11. My family. There aren’t a whole lot of people who could have had a family like mine. They can be such weirdos some times…but they are my weirdos.

12. Trees. I was known as “Tree Girl” throughout my high school/college art classes. They are about the most beautiful things in the world to me. And I love drawing them.

13. Money. I am an impulse buyer. I promise. I am getting better.

Well, folks….I think that’s about it. If I think of anything else, I shall add it. Until then, sweet dreams and goodnight 🙂

Johnny, how I loved you so… Can’t quite remember if this is from 10th or 11th grade, but I still am proud of being able to capture the essence of this beautiful, gorgeous man. This is just a simple acrylic, monochromatic painting without any shading involved. Just basic shapes. Was lots of fun 🙂 Hope you all enjoy. 

Have a wonderful HUMP DAAAAY!!
