First I just wanna say thank you soooooo much to those who wished me happy birthday CCCC; I was dying when I couldn't reply from my moms phone and then after
we checked out, I found out that the hotel had computers down stairs :/ I felt so stupid because we passed them like 100 times and I never saw them once..
Anyways I had a lot of fun in New York, though I do have to say that I was waaayyyyy out of my comfort zone lol. I'm more of a secluded, small city, outdoor type of person xD but I really did enjoy it.
Everyone kept saying that it was going to be really expensive over there but all the prices I saw were very reasonable. My mom had brought only about $600 for the whole week and I got everything I wanted, from new and much better watercolors- to a bamboo tablet, a whole lot of souvenirs, breakfast, lunch, and dinner for everyday that we were there and I also got to go to Build-A-Bear work shop (I got me a bunny with a batman outfit and I named her Lil' Batmanyka
) and we still had $23 left.
It feels really good to be back home though, I missed talking to all of you amazing people on here~ Speaking of which, I met this really awesome girl at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I had been dying from all the annoying flibbertigibbet attention seekers around me saying crap like, "Oh just IMAGINE the things this artist was thinking while painting this MASTERPIECE, he must have been so full of emotion and this bucket in front of that foot MUST be a symbol of emptiness as it is empty blah blah blah-" ugh omg...My ears wanted to puke , what that artist was probably thinking was, "oh god, why can't I get this stupid foot right. Ugh...I just...let me just draw a bucket here...there...hmm I wonder what Bill is doing tomorrow- oh geez! look at the time- I need to finish this by tomorrow afternoon. Crap. Crap. Uhhhh...I am hungry though...I think this could wait 5 minutes...or 15...20.." LOL okay so he probably wasn't thinking that. Though thats usually what goes through my mind when working on anything xDDDD
ANYWAYS so after hours of intense ear withering and slowly losing hope for the art community I come across this girl sitting on a bench drawing and looked over shoulder to see what she was drawing, trying not to be creepy I was like " I hope you don't mind if I watch you draw." and she said "oh its fine." at first I couldn't really tell what she was drawing but then I finally realized it it was a face in this really awesome style and I said "OOHH NOW I SEE IT!" lol after that we started joking about random artist problems for like an hour until she had to leave, even though I didn't get her name it made me really happy that I wasn't the only one at the museum who actually cared about art.
Bloop, but now its time to submit this piece I've been working on all day~
P.S. I actually got back Monday night but I was really tired and ended up sleeping all day yesterday.
