Self-portrait

I'm sure we all have these moments, asking ourselves what to post? To post or not to post ... oh, what the heck! lol

Anyways, I was uploading something in my computer at work yesterday, and it was taking soooo looooong ... it was agonizing! I got bored and looked around to see what I can do. I noticed my I.D. badge lying on my desk so I started sketching it. The results...? I don't think I captured the real "me" but I was entertained for a few minutes. My excuse? ...well, the pic where i copied from was small and blurry in the first place. (yeah, right!) lol

Such fun to see you!! I didn't realize you had another blog! Your are very good at drawing. I used to do a lot of drawing and painting many years ago, love it. Then I got on to needlecraft arts and that took off--LOL! I dream of returning to fine art sometime. Happy Days, my friend ((HUGS)

Mari said...

AAAHHH...my comment vanished into thin air. Now I have to do it over again.

You made use of your time, and did a good job of yourself. Good work, Nance.

I will try to make a self-portrait when I find the time. I will use a mirror, if it doesn't scare me looking at myself, first. LMAO

Uy! May talent ka rin pala like Marie, ako laging problemado pag may homework ang mga bata that needs drawing/sketching.

REDLAN said...

Wow, ngayon ko lang nalaman na magaling ka pala mag sketch especially portrait. Nainggit ako ha. Ako kasi hindi talaga marunong magsketch ng mukha kahit ano ang gagawin ko. Galing mo.

Joy said...

That is very good! You have a gift there, Nance.

Thanks for visiting A Pinay In England. Come back soon!

Mari,
I have those times too, when my comments disappear...could be that i forgot to enter the word verification? ... maybe?

yeah, occupied my time a little bit, not very productive but when I'm at work, doing nothing will drive me nuts! ;)
