some people asked for me to post the finished version of my artwork which i posted the pictures for last week, so, erm *awkward drumroll* here it is.
oh, it's a poppy head by the way, in case you weren't sure what it was! (and the medium is oil pastel)
this really does make me feel quite awkward; i don't want people to think i'm posting this because i think i'm awesome, i did it because people asked but i am also quite proud of this. i never used to feel that i could draw or paint or do other arty things as well as the other people in my school - or even in my art class - but over this past year my confidence & my ability have really grown. i feel very comfortable drawing now, & i don't feel like the rubbish outsider in my class any more.
anyway, moving on.
it really means quite a huge amount to me that people even read my blog, let alone comment like these two do. and it means an even huger amount that they love this blog, as the award suggests. so thank you very very much girls!
i think i'm supposed to send these on to 15 bloggers, but personally i think that's too many & it won't be as special that way, so i'm going to pass it on to two of my favourites, Kat & Lexy. you should go visit their blogs, & those of my awarders too, as they really are all wonderful people.
i'm off to edinburgh tomorrow with my art class for a day of galleries & amazingness, so hopefully i should have some pretty pictures to share with you all soon!
ps. i think i should explain the title of this post as it seems a tad pessimistic. so, poppy seeds are used to make opium which (forgive me if i'm wrong) is something to do with heroin, which that song by neil young is about! phew, okay done.
