24 days and counting...

Yes! That's it folks! 24 more days, and I'm a college graduate!
Oh boy, do I have a lot to do...
I have maybe 7 paintings so far for my final portfolio, and the general guideline is 12..... so I'm about 5 short. I wish it only took me 3 days to make a painting, but I'm not really that quick. I like to take my time with details. I also wish coming up with ideas didn't take me so long, but there you go. Slow painter, slow thinker... What can you do.

So a good friend of mine told me about Art Calendar's self portrait cover contest!! It looks like it will be a really great contest and super easy to enter, and the best part is there will be no application fee! woot!
So for that, I'm finishing up a painting I started last semester, got real far on, but still need to tie up loose ends. It's actually the painting I'm using for my profile picture on the blog. I started fixing it up on monday, and I must say, it was quite a good experience. Up until monday, I have never touched a painting after it had been drying for that long... ever... so it was good for me. I really hope I can finish it up and get a decent image of it by the deadline. Wish me luck!

So my plan for the remaining 24 days is to paint, make a website, design some business cards, put together a final portfolio (printed and everything..ooo fancy), and paint some more... if I can fit it in with all that.

When I'm done with the self portrait, I'll make sure I share :)
Hope you all are having a happy healthy Thursday!

    Isn't that a great thing to say "24 days and I'm a college graduate!" I'm so excited for you.

    Good luck on your to-do list. I can't wait to flip through your fancy printed portfolio.
