So, after far too long of an artist's block, I've finally gotten a new painting finished! :D

(Click on it to see it bigger/see detail pictures on deviantART)

Let me know what you think of it! I didn't get any comments on it at dA, and I'd like to have some thoughts on it. :)

In other news, it's snowing! Granted, it's tiny little flurries that aren't sticking very well, but it is still the first snow of the season, so yay!

My youngest brother had a doctor's appointment, so me and my oldest brother got to go hang out and shop and Borders for a while. It was a lot of fun, though I was pretty sad to see that they'd ripped out the entire DVD and CD sections and replaced them with gigantic Twilight displays (who needs Twilight band-aids?!). Anyway, while I was there I saw something that surprised me, given what's been going on with... oh, I'll just tell you the whole story...
Coincidence? I think not! )

"The chief difficulty Alice found at first was in managing her flamingo: she succeeded in getting its body tucked away, comfortably enough, under her arm, with its legs hanging down, but generally, just as she had got its neck nicely straightened out, and was going to give the hedgehog a blow with its head, it would twist itself round and look up in her face, with such a puzzled expression that she could not help bursting out laughing; and, when she had got its head down, and was going to begin again, it was very provoking to find that the hedgehog had unrolled itself, and was in the act of crawling away[...] Alice soon came to the conclusion that it was a very difficult game indeed."

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, Chapter 8

This one's for a storybook illustration contest. :D

Of anything I would have expected of yesterday, it wasn't this...
So, since the drama class didn't work out (it was really...juvenile?), my mom decided that I should check out the local art school. (Not a huge college style operation, by the way. Small local place, run by a guy with a hundred art degrees.) My mom told him how I loved Phantom, and that I was such a good painter, etc, and he just kind of said we should come check out the class that evening. So yesterday evening we took all of my canvas paintings and a few watercolours, and let him look them over...
Two paintings are looked at, and he says that I'd be an asset to the class.
A few more, and he's saying I can attend for the cost of materials (and not pay the actual class fee).
By the time he'd been through them all, he said he'd buy the materials, if I would just sit in the class and 'bring my energy' into the studio. In case you don't know, this is not typical.
Then, it gets even better, the local courthouse has an art show each month. The theme this month is 'Music'.... And four of my paintings are there now! We took them this afternoon!
These are the four in the show:

"Sing for the Phantom"    http://rjdaae.deviantart.com/art/quot-Sing-for-the-Phantom-quot-54481718
Make Your Choice            http://rjdaae.deviantart.com/art/Make-Your-Choice-55816544
Oblivious                            http://rjdaae.deviantart.com/art/Oblivious-57437231

Now I'm going to go lay down before I faint from shock/excitement.

Welcome to my morning,
Welcome to my day
Oh yes, I'm the one resposible,
I made it just this way
Make myself some pictures,
See what they might bring
I think I made it perfectly--
I wouldn't change a thing!
