A Mime in the Making

As I mentioned before in a previous post……I’ve been needing wanting to sketch.  But haven’t come across anything of interest…..until….I….went….to….vegas!

We were walking through the mall at the Venetian hotel (i think).  And we spotted this mime all dressed in white from head-to-toe.  He wore white make-up, had white gloves on and stood perfectly still until we came along and messed with him.  No, No…. actually he handled our harassment with class and all we got out of him was a grin or two.

I thought since he had on white and I needed sketch practice, he would be a good figure to draw.  It’s always fun to learn form and dimension with something that interests me and is a step up from what I’ve done before but not too…over…my….head. Otherwise I’d get discouraged and walk away.  Then I’d never learn how to draw!!  Haha

About Me

By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
