Interests
Though I did college in Fine Arts, I had a feeling that I needed more schooling in art. In college or university, you don't learn how to draw... you learn to express yourself, you learn about modern, contemporary, conceptual or abstract art, but no technique is taught there. It was my biggest disappointment. After college, I've suffered from a severe art blocage that have lasted YEARS! But I kept pushing and trying. Went into motherhood, so I was interrupted, but later, I kept trying and pushing. At some point, I had a feeling that the blocage was getting to an end and so, I had the feeling to really move forward, I would need some real art class.

Viva internet, I found a real cool place in Montréal, l'Académie des Beaux-Arts de Montréal  www.academ.ca/ ;
As of this week, I have accumulated 94 hours of class there so far and it REALLY pays off! I was convinced when I got to the study of lighting with the sphere (see end result here:  The sphere - Lighting study on simple shape by DemieLune ), where I really broke the wall, found the missing piece, that was THE exercice that made me SEE light, shadows and bouncing light the right way and once I could perceived it the right way, I was able to draw / paint it.

I am blessed with a very good teacher, the kind of person to whom teaching is a devotion. She is so generous, so giving, so caring. More then once, in between classes, we had long talks about my goals. When I entered the school, I knew I wanted to take the brush back, I knew my the limits I wanted to break, but the rest of the objectives were blurry. I've tried about every medium there is, from graphite, to charcoal, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, ink and digital drawing, I could not even think of one medium to focus on. It's ok to experiment, especially in art, especially when we are young... but I'm not that young anymore and I knew I wanted to get to the professional level. It's TIME to focus on what I really want to accomplish.

So, after maybe 3-4... 5? long discussions with my teacher, I finally got my ideas clear.
I've picked oil painting in traditional, but also computer graphic, like, using photoshop to paint like if it was oil (as of late, I don't really take the advantages of computer graphic, else than "save" & "undo"... and not having to wash all my material of course and keep re-doing my color palet ;p ; I paint everything in the same layer (I know, I know, it's blasphemy! ...but I'm still in a super traditional + technical school; I believe it's cool enough that I'm allowed there with laptop + photoshop + wacom intuos4 ^_^ ).

My first project in digital + art classes (more to come!!) :  Masculine Back Study by DemieLune

And my goal is to paint for novels and literature magasines covers ;P I'm myself a fantasy writer, about 1/3 of "active friends" on my facebook are colleges from the writing industry (authors, translators, publishers...), my contacts are already well started, it would just make sense to paint what I write about, but also that I paint for my friends. I believe it was my idea from the beginning, but for an... obscure reason, I couldn't grasp the idea clearly... oh well! 

I feel out of the maze of my creative mind. I'm finally feeling "on track", moving forward (in the right direction!!) ;P
