Metallic Doodle Mosaic

Well, the year is coming to a close. I haven't been able to get in my studio for two months since I've busy with an art teaching job, subbing for an art teacher at a nearby school who went on maternity leave. I had forgotten how much time it takes to teach all day and then lesson plan all evening--and keep up with two college classes to boot (not to mention the household stuff!). I do hope that recent teaching experience will help to land me a full time job this coming school year--fingers crossed. It was a great experience! But the sub job ended on the 22nd so I finally have a little free time again. 

That being said, I still haven't made it into my studio, but I do have plans do that by next weekend. I'm itching to paint, although my studio is such a mess I may end up cleaning it before I get to paint anything! C'es la vie. 

For now, I somehow manage to do a little doodling just for fun on the couch over the weekend. This is nothing spectacular, but I sometimes just being able to doodle a little bit will satisfy my creative cravings. So here is my Metallic Doodle Mosaic, done with just metallic colored pencils and a little white, on black paper.

It actually looks better in person than it does in this photo. It is challenging to photograph metallic pencil at times. But you get the idea.

Hopefully my first post of the new year will feature a new painting! In the mean time, I hope you all enjoy what's left of your 2015, and may your new year be filled with many blessings...and lots of creative time!
