Art of the Goat and the Cat

Hello, welcome to Road2Gold!

Today, I’m going to talk about the arts. My family has always been pretty artistic. My mom writes, my bro and I play instruments, I draw.

Here’s what I do to get an idea for a work of art: Listen to music, let my imagination go free, and boom… art.

There are many forms of artistic talents out there. There’s music, literature, painting/drawing, dance, and a whole lot more!

So, what do I do for art? Let me show you…

Here’s what I wrote in English class the other day:

Billy and Friskies, Chris and Joe

                “Get back here you goat!” Farmer Joe yelled.

Billy Goat was running as fast as he could from Joe. He had a dream to become president of the United States. The day he would become president, he’d lock Joe in jail.

“Stupid goat,” Joe muttered to himself. “I’ll get you!”

Billy ran into the town square in D.C. He saw an orange cat with stripes. “Good day,” He bleated.

The cat cocked her head. “Meow?” She purred. “Meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow, meow.”

Billy gave up speaking to the cat for he didn’t understand meow. “Bleat bleat.” Billy continued running until he felt something on his back, the cat!

“Meow meow!” The cat said. “MEEEOW!

Billy and the cat turned to the post office. They tripped a guy with a bag and almost hit a mailbox.

“Stop him!” Joe cried. He had followed Billy all the way to the post office. “The goat, get him!”

The guy with the bag grabbed Joe’s leg, trying to get up. But Joe just fell down.

“What are you doing, fool?” Joe lectured the guy. “My goat is running away from me!”

“Help me up first and I’ll help you find your goat and my cat!” The guy said. After Joe had helped him up, he introduced himself as Chris Hanbag.

“I’m Joe. I live on a farm in Pennsylvania. How my goat ran to Washington D.C., I don’t know.”

Chris and Joe tried tracking the two animals. They asked the city’s people. All they said was they saw them going towards the White House.

“Oh no!” said Chris. “What are they going to do now? That cat’s curious. She’ll climb Mount Everest!”

“Bleat! (It’s the White House)” Billy exclaimed. “Bl- Bleat! (I’m going to become President!”

“Meow meow! (I’ll be your Vice!)” The cat said. “Meow meow purr Friskies! (My name is Friskies!)”

A week later, Billy and Friskies ruled the United States for eight years. They locked Joe in jail and appointed Chris for U.S. Senator of Virginia.

THE END

There you have it! A work of art!

Another type of arm I enjoy is, as some of you may already know, drawing!

Here is one of my recent drawings:

Another type of “Canvas Art”, as I call it, is using computers. Back in the summer, I wrote a post about using PhotoShop to make my pals from the neighborhood the Superfriends. Well, I’ve gotten a bit better using PhotoShop since then as you can see. (The one in the top left is the original picture.)

The musical part of the arts is another one of my favorites. I play the piano and my little bro plays the electric guitar. We sound quite well together.

In the end, anything you create is art. Whether it’s drawing, composing, choreographing, it’s still art.

What types of art do you enjoy?

Sore Subjects

Hello, my fine friends, and welcome to Road2Gold!

If you don’t know, I LOVE to draw! Mostly Kingdom Hearts characters! (Kingdom Hearts has the blogging floor for another day.) To stay organized, I would put all my drawings in a little blue folder. This particular folder became VERY special to me. Since it was so special, I just HAD to bring it to church one day. Yeah… shouldn’t have done that.

 

 

 

That day my folder “vanished”.

That night, I wanted to draw. (And I don’t like drawing without my folder. It just doesn’t feel right.) It was pouring. So, in my PJs, I walked into the rain to get my folder. It wasn’t there!

The next week, we looked EVERYWHERE (and I mean everywhere) for this folder.

I cried.

Months of work, gone.

I couldn’t accept it, which I still can’t.

But, this past week, I went to my friends’ house and her sister told me to draw Kairi. (From KH) After that, I couldn’t stop drawing! I just wanted to draw and draw and draw and draw and draw. (If I had the kind of time, of course.)

Unfortunately, my folder wasn’t in my hands where it SHOULD have been.

Fortunately, I took a picture of every single one of my pictures! Though I still miss that folder, I found I had improved SO much.

For example:

Riku, (yes, from KH) HE IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE A CHIN! He didn’t before. Now, he does! (Yippee!)

 

 

 

That is Riku. He has a chin.

Kairi: Wow… I was a very interesting drawer then. She looks better now.

Lessons to be learned? Don’t cling to things. You could lose them. Yes, it will hurt, so have your time to be upset, and then just do it again! If you’re like me, you just might have improved.

I know you don’t want to go near it again because it brings back memories of you losing your work, (or something along those lines) But still, you need to do it again!

So, Yeah. Same for all you writers out there who have lost their work. Do it again! You DON’T want to end up like that lady:

 See?

 

 

 

 

The thing is, it’s okay to have something important in life, but don’t cling to it too much, because it could all be lost.
