Wow…it’s been 400 years since I posted on the blog...or at least that’s what it feels like.My old computer finally bit the bullet last weekend after being extremely sluggish for well over a year.It would take FOREVER for the internet to run or for applications and docs to open up, etc.I can’t believe how long I’ve put up with that… My old pc was purchased in April of 2003, so I’ve definitely got my money’s worth out of it.I decided to stay with the same brand, Dell, and got a Inspiron 17R, so I’m very excited to get it this week, although I know absolutely nothing about laptops. EEEK!!!I’ll have to post a picture of the new computer to the blog when I get it.: )

I finally got some painting time in today; yay!!   The past two weeks have been hectic, so I'm looking forward to having more time to get work done.   : )

Here are my 5x7 sketches that I have attached to the easel on a piece of foamboard.



Here are some paintings...the backgrounds are still being blocked in:





Well, I’m slow to post here lately, but I should have some pics to upload this weekend.I just started several new paintings, but didn’t think they were quite ready for their debut on the blog just yet.Artists tend to be a little sensitive about their work, especially when it’s still being created.Personally, when I start out on a painting, I have a sketch and a rough idea of what I want the end result to be, but getting there can be a little tricky...I may have a lot of under painting to complete, or large amounts of detailing that is not immediately apparent.    SO, if somebody is unfamiliar with my process, they may come along and say something negative, without intending any ill will, but since I’m overly sensitive about my creative baby that is growing and taking shape, I can easily take offense.Too much stress, huh?   That's why sometimes it's best just to keep things private and avoid potential issues.   Ahhh….the creative process….so fun and yet it can be so painful.
