April: Taurus & Aries, Best Month To Start Something New & Invigorate Yourself (New Year!)

It seems like my new year is April.

Year after year it seems I start and revise a lot of things during this month.  I’ll revise websites, start new services, etc. And the proof is in published dates!

For example, I’ve had my Jaisla blog going for a long time but didn’t do much with it or rather I couldn’t get it off the ground and running!

My Welcome post was on April 16th, 2009!!

Then, my first Facebook page related to the topic of Jaisla (which is my artist name, and there’s a special meaning to the name!), was started on April 30th, 2011.   I wonder what I did in April 2010. LOL

And on April 29th, 2012 I formally launched my readings and portraits service!

It took three years for Jaisla to manifest itself.

Amazing!!

I <3 life.

Finished Jaisla Artwork: Lady in Neptune & *NEW* Face Readings + Portrait Service

This is the type of drawing I’ll be doing for my new service:  Face Reading & Portrait

If you’re interested in sending me a clear picture of your face (side and front), then I will give you a 20-30 minute over-the-phone face reading AND you’ll get your very own Jaisla portrait, drawn in pencil for only $30 (beta version). Email facereadingportraits @ jaisla .com

Please note that colors will likely be different and I may not include sparkles in your portrait.  Also, the hair may be wildly different.  These will be intuitive drawings that take into account your personality and potential. :-) Your whole face might not even be part of the portrait.  Basically I’ll have total artistic license here so expect the unexpected!!

Except there seems to be one quirk of mine that’s emerging and that’s a graphite face with colored head / hair area. But I don’t know if that’ll continue. So go back to expecting the unexpected!! :D

For some reason I’ve had a tendency to do female or unisex drawings but I’ll do strongly male portraits too.

Lady in Neptune

April 28th, 2012
Graphite, colored pencils, and sparkle paint

 

Here are other examples, all done in the last couple of months:

Lady Jester

Graphite and colored pencil

African Queen

Graphite and multi-color pencil

Untitled

Unfinished
Graphite

 

For my Saturn type Face Reading & Portrait clients, I’ll focus more on detail of certain aspects (such as your eyes, mouth, or nose) but then I probably won’t do your whole face as it’d take far too many hours to do fully realistic. One eye, as per below, can take one hour when done realistically.

The eye below was created from a photo so there’s a lot of realism in it.

The eyes and nose below was created from my imagination, as were the first three portraits.

Art Supplies: Above Ground Art Supplies & a Visit to The Art Gallery of Ontario

Part of my Big Day Out in Toronto.

Visited Above Ground Art Supplies.

Got some new art supplies.  A gradient of yellow and orange pencils (FaberCastell) to do some sunny pictures. Some yummy conte crayons. A new drawing kit (Pro Art) with pencils and charcoal. Tiny tortillon‘s for blending very small areas like a tiny eye, and the most amazing Quattro CretaColor  multi-color pencil that I thought would be a novelty but turned out to be one of the most happiest Piscean purchases I’ve made.

As I was checking out my new art supplies, downstairs in the AGO, I got a sudden and unexpected stupid grin when I used the ‘multi color’ pencil.  I couldn’t believe how much joy a pencil gave me.  LOL

So I have decided to start offering portraits with face readings.

Yeah, that’s how my 5th and 6th / 11th and 12th houses (Mercury-Jupiter) works.  haha…. My hobbies turn into work. Stay tuned.

Checking out what the new art supplies can do. There’s a sexy all black pencil in there too.  Me, wearing all black.  Pencil, black. Mmmmm. Sexay! If I do say so myself. ;-P

This has got a Lioness quality to it… I messed up on the lips but this was just practice stuff to see what I could do with the new art supplies.  Oh my gasm, I couldn’t stop smiling with joy!
