Start of School

I'm sorry if this blog becomes more art oriented these next few months, school has started again for me, and that's about all I'm finding I have time for. I'm sure I squeeze in a little crafting here and there though! :)
I've been working on a self portrait this last week, and this is the "progression":

I'm not completely finished with it , I still need to add some cool tones in the flesh, and finish a lot of the really detailed areas. I'm fairly happy with it so far though.
My grandparents visited our new apartment (see the messiness in the backround still...) yesterday, and it was a nice time. Hi grandma!! (she's my most avid blog reader)
They brought a desk over for me which is really perfect for our apartment. We have a fairly large living room, so I wanted to split it up into the couch/tv area, and a study area, now I've just got to find a place for my beloved green chair... I'll post pics of my lovely new desk when I get the study area organized. I've also been working on painting and decorating my studio this next week. Last but not least, my dad also started a blog, which can be found here.
I'm off to watch the Packers!

Your self portrait is wonderful, but you look so serious for such a young woman. I do enjoy seeing your work though and hope you continue to share it in your blog.
