This one is a brokebot one, and it's getting some outlines, hopefully delicate and precise. Some other details needing to be cleaned up.

Working on this right now. Well trying to. It's three in the afternoon. I have a headache, trying to drink enough water. Probably have sheets to hang to dry now. Have to go to the bank in a few hours. Have to order some cream for my mom. Started writing a letter to a cousin a few days ago. She's written me in the past, many years ago, and I never wrote back. I feel like I can't handle the concrete-ness of letter writing. But hoping to finish and send it sometime soon. Hoping not ache in the head soon. Hoping to focus my mind to detail this painting. Hoping to get my mind off of the lack of social life, lack of certain things due to have a small social life. Hoping to be beautiful person, now and the rest of my life. Hoping to work hard enough that I might be able to move to a better place one day. Afford such luxuries and professional haircuts again one day.

I suppose I ought to be painting. at least a little. something to advance this painting on my easel. but well, i am not very focused. earlier i channeled some feelings into litte drawings of what i feel my face feels like. wel.. like a characture, and then i got acrylics to color.. and realized i want to go with a realistic color for skin instead of the easy red and white.. so, i used pure like raw sienna or something. which is an earth color. only on copy paper, so it didnt hold very well. and well the results were not that appealing. but something in the corner did look nice. the line drawing of my first attempt near which i squeezed out paints for this page. it looked nice in the end. insta grammed it. then i had dinner, and came back here again.. and well, i shouldnt focus on my looks. i should focus on with what to fill my life with. And just live a good life.

Making Hearthstone decks is /can be Hard. Working on a thrall custom deck. Play loose modify. Repeat.
So updated my blog today. The one I started after I quit posting here in 2010, and imported to it the posts from the blogger account I had from before I came here.
http://carolroque.blogspot.com/
Its looking good, now managing to actually be my favorite place. Well there was a mixup, and stuff all personal about these two blogs. I guess it's all sorted now. Pretty petty in a way. And unnecessary perhaps, but it makes me happy, to have blog I like. I've just abandoned and started too many places on the internet and recently revisited many of them. Recovered that first blogger spot and posted there again, but that is what is now consolidated into the linked spot above. So, all is well. I think I will sleep good again tonight. October is here. FF is this week. Had a slow month this month, slow progress. Worked on only a few things. But have finally called it quits on two paintings. Try just need signatures and varnish. Quite happy about that. They weren't meant to take so long. But I like them. A couple others are very close. Hope to get really productive this upcoming, already here month. I will. Livejournal to the rescue, I don't think anyone reads here. But if someone does well, it's quite diary like here. So don't mind me. And if you do then I suppose this is goodbye. Haha.. I don't know. I'm a bit drowsy and I feel like I'm talking to myself here, which is perfectly awesome. It's how I usually like it, haha.. Just kidding.. I am a lone wolf sort of girl though. K bye.

Today is the 24th. My cycle has begun. I been working on this piece for like what feels like 20 minutes this evening. It's really hard to focus sometimes. Went for a walk though with aldo. that was cool. need to focus. i hope to post a picture on my wordpress later, sometime. sharing my progress. but gosh, painting is hard. Maybe this place with replace the old xanga. maybe it will be filled with nonsense, with words that say nothing of great importance. but I also like sharing pictures. I can never decide.

Played Hearthstone this evening. Lost so much and so badly. Been trying to level up my priest deck. Entered the Arena. Came so close to winning, but got defeated so It's not even funny. Well, it should be. Then tried to play sims, it crashed. I don't know what to do next. Maybe Divinity instead. Had pizza tonight. Maybe I'll post all my diary entries here, been doing some on the Wordpress, some publicly, because I know.. No one sees posts of mine that I don't tag. Or like, I don't have my full name there and things like that. In my about page I have my other blog linked which has a link to my website, which is just my tumblr. I could take either of those links of. Make them sites standalone. Any traffic they receive would be from other places anyway, or places where it don't matter, like,, well they probably wouldn't have much traffic to begin with. And if they did and like wanted to contact me they could, either via comment or maybe my email is on my one blog. Last night watched a movie. Edge of Tomorrow. It was quite amazing id say. Might watch another now, or could but, maybe I don't want to, I'm not sure. Wish I had won today at a match, maybe I even did, just don't remember.
Fun games though. Gosh.

..
Just watched aldo fight a boss on this one game, .. it was so rediculous. haha.

i think i like writing from my phone to livejournal, more than i do typing on the computer, like i am now. my screen is so damn open.

..
So, I was thinking, this here can be the place where I can write without care, without censor. Or as drafts, for posts elsewhere. whatever.
..



Yesterday I read about Virginia Woolf, on The Daily Post, on wordpress. It linked to another article:

http://www.brainpickings.org/2013/01/25/virginia-woolf-on-keeping-a-diary/

And well, all this reading was really enjoyable.

Don't want this place getting too word-Heavy. Here's a painting I've made. It measures 8 inches by 10 inches. Canvas. Made an under drawing with charcoal and turpenoid. Then laid in acrylic, which I liked. I was just going to be acrylic, but I went in with oil paint. I like the results. I might do this more often, acrylic on canvas. then oils.
It's a light hearted piece.. Simple in subject. I tried to emulate the faces off someone on a Viner painting. from his "garage days" as he put it. Those are some of my favorite works by him.

Wanna Play Hero Academy with me? (brokeneyeball) [Jul. 23rd, 2014|05:14 pm]
[Current Mood |workingworking]

I recently started playing Hero Academy on my iphone. Since Saturday I think. It's been fun. But since I've been trying to be working hard, I can't have the distraction during the day anymore. It's charging in my room right now, but, it's best it's over there. It's best to keep distractions far away, and focus really really hard for as long as I can. I am making progress though, these are looking better and better, this week I've been working on the young men paintings, I hope to finish all four by the end of this month.

Dear Diary, It is really hot right now. I remembered earlier, that, I think the first time I used livejournal, may have been exactly ten years ago. Before that I was on xanga, I recently wanted to read my old entries, but I found some odd stuff about needing a wordpress account or something. Yesterday, actually the day before, Sunday, I worked out. And I am still sore. Muscles ache. About to eat my second meal, then I'll get back to work.

ready for it. ready for it.
Three in the works. I love my view. Not now, but while I'm away from the computer and technology. I paint. My easel, my giant easel currently holding tiny paintings, compared to what it could hold. My palette, getting dirtier by the day, hardboard panel. the colors I've narrowed down to. I can mix every color from it. So I'm not missing anything. Just spend time mixing the paints I'll use for each session. I do end up with a more cohesive choice of colors on these couple paintings I've used them on. I really hope the look of it will be even and not sunken. Greatly minimizing the amount of medium I use will help with that too.
I think any time you paint just mostly straight out of the tube is good. I only use turpenoid to clean the brush in between switching colors, and leaving them in at night instead of thoroughly cleaning them each day. I really like these paintings.. I can't wait to see how they really turn out.

[Current Music |school boy q]

I just scraped my palette of dry paint, and colors from my previous palette, my second palette of colors, that includes the raw sienna and such. I'm focused in on red yellow blue black and white, from W&N Winton tubes. To minimize sunken in areas, that have resulted from too much something. I'm loving my current series of paintings, Verano 2014. I have three started, I can't wait to further detail this one I'm working on. The boy/young man.

Starting right now. Fresh paints squeezed. I'm ready.

painting right now, about to start.

just gessoed several wood plaques. One is ready with all the coats and dry enough.

ate half an apple, and half a cookie. snack.


will play with oil paint now, still at it with the primary colors in full force.
as I hear some say. my last painting turned out really good so far. I really really like it, so does A.
This one I'll make using the same technique, a sort of dry brush because I will mostly be using the paint straight out of the tube. especially today. Tomorrow I will probably use a bit of stand oil where it needs.

4:35pm. It's going good. I really like how my painting is coming along.
 It's a new one, another oval, about 4x6x1 inch. Oil painting. I'm trying to get looser with how I create the painting I paint.
 It's gonna be good. I've also started posting directly to fb, and not to twitter anymore. Through instagram.

now, Should I keep this open, and write in time by time, when i, if i want to. Or, Close it and make a new post..

4:38pm. I really am going back to painting now.

4:40 I've narrowed down the brushes I'm using. As well as the colors.
not in the past couple minutes. since yesterday or the day before.

4:57 Bug Beats radio on Pandora. My painting is looking good. Have To Focus.

I really like this drawing. I made it a couple years ago. Last night I played Guacamelee and posted some drawings on my instagram.
On Saturday I went to the store to buy some wooden plaques. 8 oval ones and a couple other shapes. I will paint lovelyness onto them.
Friday was July 4th.

We were at First Friday artwalk, it was worth going because we made some money and we're so poor, but it was the worst we've done in a long time.

I worked yesterday, but didn't make time to post anything about it. I painted a little bit. It can be seen on my vine profile..
Today I'm working on a painting I started working on last month or so. It's almost finished, but these last details I have to add are really important even though they look simple, they take special care so I don't mess up.
This one is a BrokeBot painting, more than anything else. It's not something I'd come up with or end up painting on my own, but I have enjoyed it's creation. I also can't wait until I am done with it, to cross it off my list. And to list it online in my shop. And to start a new painting!

So, on Wednesday is the last day I had a full work day. Thursday I didn't paint, ended up doing other things that day, it was like a saturday night. Friday, today, I did not paint. I did begin organizing my desk mess. So I thought that was productive.
Today was a good day.
