Hey DA peoples! I've been so busy with college, its not even funny, am lucky to get an hour a night to myself. But thank everything under the sun for EASTER HOLIDAYS (or homework time as my lecturers are describing it
burst my bubble why don't ye?)
Recently, I was very melancholy at the lack of free time, but I got off my arse and started using my weekends for more socialising for my sanity, and ended up having serious laughs. Laughter really is the best medicine! I've been to Dublin, and Waterford and seen some old friends from Sligo, and it. is. DEADLY!
I'm sometimes finding Fine Art very stodgy, full of big-ass words in history lectures (which normally i don't mind) but all of that is waffle, and i hear classmates constantly complaining of outdated teaching methods, which is frustrating. Sometimes, I have to wake up and say 'eyes on the prize' i.e the degree. On the plus side, time gets away from me when I'm oil painting! I love it! Its a gorgeous medium, with so many possibilities, much less flat than acrylics (which i still love).
I'll be so glad for the breather of Easter holidays, and get away from bias, pomp and malcontent opinions for a little while, to reconnect with what I love about artwork. But if I could take out a year to save money (and cling to my sanity), then conform to a fine art perspective, I can stomach more of this to my goal: an Art degree. I really hope to continue artwork I love, and be happy in producing it
I couldn't really ask for more! Hope everyone has a great Easter!! ALL of the chocolate eggs!
