It's been a while since I blogged. Not that I have any astounding revelations after my period of absence or anything. I guess I am and will always be...random.
So launching in with a random statement... It's funny what people are good at.
At school, I was never the fastest, the strongest or the best at any sport. I was average to above average at most things...but never the best. Most of us remember the fastest runners at our schools or the brainiest dux types.
Napoleon Dynamite tells us that girls only like guys with skills...bow hunting, computer hacking etc. So with a little encouragement from his mate Pedro, Napoleon decides to draw the girl of his dreams a portrait (his best skill).
I especially like the shading. Apparently he spent 3 hours shading one of the eyes...skills!
So on a vaguely related topic, I was at Oceans Beach, Whangarei, a wee while back and was snapping away on my camera. Despite the cold the kids enjoyed playing in the water.
Then my Mum who is cultivating her artistic skills decided to paint them...
It's not finished yet but... mean skills ma! Bags putting on our wall when it's done :)
