So I imagine that the zodiological signs are female, that they are goddesses of the sky and that they are all sisters; and at the end of last year I decided to illustrate all of them.
I have a few projects and photos here needing to be shown, starting with last April. There's not a lot and they're all various types of art ending with the most recent which is photography.
So, this is some of what I've been doing, crafty/artistically for the last year.
My childhood church hosts an Irish Italian Festival for St. Patrick's Day. It started in the early 2000's, with the initial idea being an Irish festival, but the lone Italian family wanted to be included, so hence why it's the Irish Italian Festival. I'm not even certain if that Italian family is even part of the church anymore, but I digress.
It started out small with some bagpipe players and Irish Stew and wine and Spaghetti. Now there's a parade in the morning and mass said in Gaelic in the afternoon with the festival starting directly after. There are alters to each patron saint, where food is donated for the poor. Tons of various food and drinks to purchase, with the only thing Irish or Italian being offered is still the Irish Stew and then pizza from Little Caesar's. There's a bake sale and cotton candy and popcorn. There's a silent auction and an art show. There are still bagpipe players and then a band jamming out tunes late into the evening. It's a really huge affair now, it's kind of crazy.
So, last year The Sister and I were invited to have some art in the art show, which we did, and were invited again this year, which is this post.
I am currently participating in a four week art e-course via @ghostkittenart on Instagram. You can follow along by searching #ArtMakerCircle or following me @Peruvian.Pink.Arts
We're just in week 1, but I came out of my shell and actually pursued drawing something that I love and am interested in, but before felt that I couldn't accomplish. I'm pretty pleased.
Also, if you are interested then it's not too late to start. The first project isn't due until Monday 22. January.
Behind the cut contains all entries. I actually only made it to week three of the four week course.
Sometimes it's fun and amusing to draw what you know, as in yourself. So, I have done a bit of that over the years. Everything to my name meaning, my likes, childhood dreams to various stages of my real life and myself if I were an alien being.
