Top knots and portraits.


Finally I have my new nixon lens, I came home from work today, to find a lovely little parcel on the table, I ran up stairs and attached it to my camera, its the best thing I have ever bought. Good bye iphone photos hello clean, crisp photos. I was devastated when my last lens broke, I took it out of my bag and it just stopped working my heart sank. 
Today was crazy busy at work and I had to cover quite a few lessons so it was pretty hectic filled with teaching g.c.s.e maths, science and english. When I get home I feel pretty much like a zombie so to cheer myself up I spend an hour everyday when i get in to do some art for myself. I miss my old University days where every breathing moment was consumed with thinking about art, reading about art, making art and drinking...those where the days. I couldn't resist making a paint brush mustache, sorry - had to be done. I hope you like "my what i wore today" illustration i did it quickly this morning whilst making a few  little lesson plan. I always put my hair into a messy bun when i am painting. My Mum always says she knew when i was concentrating on painting as a kid when I had my hair up and poking my tongue out to concentrate believe me its a good look.
