What happened to the amazingly controlled, albeit somewhat unhappy me? What happened to the girl who would study every single day, read her art history book and be soooo uber-prepared for tests?
I don't know. I think it has something to do with the insane schedule of an art student, finishing a novel and planning (and painting a series for) a gallery show, serving on a planning committee for a women's group for my church, and taking two art history classes all at the same time. Yes. I know that all of this is my fault. I could have said, "No, I am way to busy to plan a show right before the end of semester." I could have said, "Huh uh, I am not taking a calling right now. I don't have time." I could have said, "Lee, you don't need to finish your book before June, just take it easy." I could have laughed at Kenna when she said taking two art history classes at the same time is awesome.... actually, I did laugh, but I believed her too, and now here I am.
So I have a 20th Century Art and Architecture test today. It's an essay test, like all of Courtney's tests. I got my most recent test in ARTH 2710 back yesterday, I got a 100%. But am I prepared for today's test? Guess how much I studied for it. I mean, before this morning, on the day of the test, guess how much I studied. That's right, ZERO. Who is this person who completely blows off studying - over SPRING BREAK?? What happened to her?
So I studied this morning. Like it would help.
I can say that the only time I really miss that girl is when I'm cramming for a test, otherwise, she is pretty much gone. This new girl is happier, laughs more, eats more (obviously) and makes happier art than the other girl. :)
So what did you do over spring break? I watched Charlton Heston movies...
What am I DOING? I'm going to read over my notes again. My test is at 2:30.
In other news: Will Terry taught us this rad technique, I discussed it here. We were told to prepare a sketch for this technique. Then he had us do a cool underpainting with a warm overpainting, or the reverse. I did the reverse: burnt sienna underpainting with cools to render it out. I showed it to Luke and he goes, "I'm an Avatar!"
I think it's kinda cool. You should see Will Terry's paintings done this way! Click here.
