Hello World

My name is Shamus Collins. My wife came across a blog entitled "Creative Journey" by an artist named Myrna Wacknov. There is a link on that blog to another blog Myrna has created entitled "Drawn to the Mirror" and this is my point of interest. Myrna has set forth to create 365 days of self portraits that began on Jan. 1st. Well I am starting a little after the first of the year but I am going to make the same goal for myself. This sounds like a fun and inspirational way to force creativity. Let the fun begin.

173/365 Colors of the South

Inspired by the colors of San Antonio. A very bright community rich with Spanish flair and history.


171/365 From The Top

This is me looking down with sunglasses on (the top of my head). Trying to work with blending shades of the same color.

170/365 Slow Down

I spent the weekend in San Antonio with my family. While there I watched a street painter and his watercolors dance in amazement. I realized that I am trying to work way too fast and too sloppily. This was the first time I have ever seen someone paint with watercolors. I took plenty of mental notes and will try to work off of this new knowledge.
