When the Dog Bites

so i have decided to start a new series for the new year.  i will be adding a few of my favorite things every week for the first month of 2010!  so please feel free to comment and let me know what some of your favorite things are and what helps you get through a hard day.

"My Favorite Things"

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels

Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into springs

These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites

When the bee stings

When I'm feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don't feel so bad

The Eve of Christmas

i have forgotten to mention the fact that i have made it through my first semester as an art major.  it has been a great semester.  i got my grades for my classes and i got all a's in my art classes so that is a major plus. :)  i love my major alot.  i never knew i would like it so much.  i have learned so much too.  in art history, (which is kinda my favorite since i love to know what i am talking about) i learned about alot of different art cultures.  i have to say my favorite would be the minoan culture (pre-atlantis distruction) or maybe the "dark ages".  i had to put quotations on that because as my art instructor makes it clear that those ages were filled with so much light and not dark at all.  i have no idea why but i think i might teach art history.  in drawing, i have learned to trust my ability to draw.  i have survived two and three point persceptive.  i tried different medium.  i have to say my favorite is probably a nice pen and a juicy permenant marker.  in design, i learned how i love to put designs going off the pages, which my instructor loves a whole lot.  i really can't wait for next semester.  i will be living at home and commuting, so i will have more workspace and will probably get more art supplies.  i will continue in my journey as an art major and take all my basic classes (art history, drawing, design) part two.  it should be interesting.  stay tuned!

i forgot to mention that i painted a quote on my wall last week, right above my bed.  here are some great art quotes:
