Reason: This month for the Thursday night class we are studying how to do good portraits (something I really need a lot of help with,) AND...Kamille is doing a Saturday outdoor figure PAINTING class. I haven't ever really oil painted ever...let alone try to ever paint anything for life drawing so this strikes me as big a huge-o opportunity. Just very very cool. I would really like to take the class and one of the regulars (it's going to be on his property in fact) told me if I wanted, he would help hook me up with all the paints etc so I don't have to spend 300 dollars in materials for a 225 dollar class.
I'm torn...logically I think if I can afford it this month it's really going to be by the skin of my teeth...but the artist in me is screaming to take it. They're not going to do anything like this for at least another YEAR. Plus I've got a chunky raise coming AND my rent is going down by about 200 a month after August...so duuuude. Painting. Figures. And portraits. And moving. And working on a little pantomine short of my own. This is going to be a nutty month. Yoinks.
Plus I'm still ticked off the boys are all going fishing in Alaska. And I'm allowed to feel however I jolly well want about THAT.
