From Me & Mine to all of you,
We hope that your holiday is wonderful
and the coming New Year, too.
This piece of “art” is an consequence of an art class taken at Eastern Oregon University and is one class that counts towards the degree I am seeking. So, for those who care, and I’m sure there are very, very few. This is a hand drawn piece with pencil, felt tip pens, and in one case a Gel pen. I then scanned in the piece, and imported to Photoshop (2021) and ran it through a few filters. I cut pieces out and put them in their own layers, added drop shadows patterns, and some texture. The ornaments got covered over with the digital paint brush.
I will be sharing my projects from class soon. Right now, I’ve got a job to do and so I’m keeping this short. But, the whole experience was positive. I got myself an A on the books. And I ended buying myself a Christmas present. I now have a professional digital pad for drawing on.
I’ve had one before. I hardly did what it was advertised to do. You know, the computing power just wasn’t there back then. Today the drawing pads, can catch the naunces of the pressure you put on the sylus and in the loops and semi-lines you draw. The tool is incrediable. I can’t wait to have time to work with it in a steady way.
Because I have a job I probably won’t post much until after the new year. So, I really do hope you are all healthy, wealthy, and wise. Happy, honored, and beloved by someone. Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!! ~ Peg?
Extra note to my oldest: Do not think for any moment that I have forgotten you or the fact that your birthday is in exactly one day. I wish you a very happy birthday and a very beautiful day. I wish you health and happiness in whatever form you like.
