Looking forward to a little extra time after Easter to do some painting. I've been surprisingly very busy these past two weeks with church and family stuff, so that leaves no extra time to get behind the easel these days.
I'm back to my old website!! I can't express how happy and exciting this is for me.
Last year I had issues with my domain and created another website, but was hoping to be able to get back to this format/site again. I'm praying that this change back to the old format will help me to do updates more frequently. 😊
Since the old website is down and the last post on here was of the studio reorganzition, I thought I would share what the studio looks like now.
I moved in 2017, so here is the new setup:
My entire living room is now a studio...like I've always wanted it to be. What you can't see are my book shelves and my computer corner. My studio manager/assistant, Brutus McSpadden, sneaked into the photo. When I noticed him up on his perch, I took another pic of him:
Brutus is a big tomcat...he weighs 20 lbs and loves art. I have woken up several times with paint brushes beside my head that he has brought me during night. Such a sweet kitty.
The Burst painting below is now completed and ready to go to a new forever home.
This painting is all about love bursting forth and has interference and iridescent paints in the top layers that were a little difficult to photograph. Here is a little closeup of the inner heart portion:
year has been quite fantastic. I guess
the best way to sum up 2016 for me could be done in one word: CHANGE I
have a new job (8-5) that I absolutely love at Cornerstone Relocation. The team is awesome. The office is 1.7 miles from my house. My former place of employment had a much longer
commute and a the work environment was more stressful, so this new job is a
huge blessing for me. I have a new cat
named Brutus (Bruty) who was born on 3/03/16. I got a new car. My 2006 Lancer decided it was time to start
having issues and since I was having the new car itch, I got an Outlander Sport
at the end of July. The
studio has been rearranged. AGAIN. Earlier this spring I reorganized my art
materials and moved things around only to find that I really didn’t like the
new setup several months later. It was
a chore to go through everything again and move the supplies around, but I’m
much happier with new configuration and hope that the changes will = creative
drive/energy as I have …
