Sometimes I like to do more realistic art. This is a self portrait of sorts that I did using colored pencils.
The weirdest thing happened to me the other day. I had let a friend use my art and quote me for a booth at the BYU women's conference. Afterwards she sent me an email and told me that several women who stopped by the booth mentioned that they were familiar with my artwork. (that made me smile) and referring to the quotes displayed they said they were glad to know that I am a real person.
A real person? It never occurred to me that I would appear as anything different. I always assume that people who look on my blog are only interested in getting free art to use. Which is think is the main thing still. But I wonder if I need to let you get to know me a little better.
Here are a few things about myself. I'll read the comments to know if this is something you care to have me do more of in the future or not.
First of all, my biggest secret: My house is always messy. I have never been good at being tidy. While I really like a clean house, my gumption to do anything about it comes in spurts. My family is SO good at tearing everything apart so quickly that sometimes I just give up and let the house go. It's not a hoarder house by any means, but it's no model home either. When it makes me crazy, I do a big clean and the whole cycle starts all over again.
When my visiting teachers come, (if things are in the messy part of the cycle) I only clean the places that are in eye-shot of where they sit on the couch. :)
I also hate to cook. Or at least I've developed a complex about it. My husband has diabetes, and my daughter who has cerebral palsy will only eat a handful of specific foods. Nutrition just doesn't seem to make any sense in my head. So I really struggle to come up with meals that everyone will eat. I usually end up making several meals each meal just to feed my family. I hate it. If I don't have to worry about restrictions, I'm actually a good cook and don't mind doing it.
So.....what are your deep dark secrets?
