Artist’s Goals

Hello, it’s Cam again.  I’ve been thinking about how to make this more interesting, but I wasn’t able to.  I decided it would be a bit boring for myself to show you everyday ranch life, and so I decided that I should talk about the other thing that takes up most my time.

One of my dreams is to be an artist when I get older.  At the moment, I’m trying to focus on school and horseback riding, and chores but art is my passion.  A passion that grows with every failure and masterpiece I create.

Cassy has remarked that I only draw horses and humans.  That isn’t true, and I’m working on a landscape at the moment, but my best works are people and horses. That’s what I enjoy watching and interacting with, and so that’s what I paint/draw.  Are you ready to see my art work?

I was doodling one of the horses in the pasture, and I just added some writing to it.  Cassy and I took a hand lettering class, but I’m not very good at it.  I’m better at the actual drawing.

Someone from our church wanted a portrait of their little girl, and so I drew this sketch.  They seemed to like it, and they said that some time they might want a painting.  (I enjoy drawing little children.  Their reactions when they see their portraits are priceless.)

This painting took a long time, and I still need to frame it, but I’m rather proud of it.  I like the different shades of blue that make up this picture, and of course, it’s HORSES.  What’s not to love?  And the yellow highlights…And green???? I can’t wait to frame it and get it on the wall!

I also spent a very long time on this portrait of Abraham Lincoln.  It’s done with Willow charcoal, and I spent a long time over the graft and just erasing and redoing.  I’m very proud of it, and I can’t wait to do it again with another picture.  Maybe I should do my friend Amie…What do you say?  Who’s portrait should I try next?

Cassy dared me to do some “modern” art.  She said that Abraham Lincoln looked like he was from the 1800s, and I should try being a fourteen-year-old girl, and so I drew this.  It was pretty simple and boring, but Cassy loved it and said I should do more drawings like this.  *shrugs* It’s not very impressive.

And now we shall end with a picture that makes me feel very happy.  I mostly wear work boots on the ranch, but whenever we go into town or go to church, I’m wearing my Chuck Taylors.

Thank you for reading this!  Are you an artist?  What was your favorite drawing/painting in this post?  What do you want to do with your life?

  2. Very well done Cam! I am an artist so I am pleased to find another one. The painting of the horses is in my opinion the best. Did you do it free hand? Well done.
