Around the Studio...


   Yesterday was so nice. I got to go into my quiet studio, sit down with my paints, listen to some OnBeing, and get a lot of work done in one sitting. I'm so happy with how the clean out and rearranging went-- we put up some curtains that used to hang in our bedroom, I mopped up the floors, dusted things off and set up a nice workspace for myself where I can paint and also email and do what I need to on the computer. It looks nice and neat for now...we'll see how long I can keep that up ;)


   This fresh start is good as I embark on new plans. One of the most exciting things on the horizon is a new book project, this one that I will be both writer and illustrator for!  I signed on with the publisher a few days ago, and I think its going to be a great fit. There's lots of work ahead, but I'm so excited about it!  

  Like all of these types of projects, its going to be a long term thing and the finished product is many months on down the line. But I am really looking forward to each and every step of the process and am ready to start this new journey!

  Of course I will still be doing stand alone paintings and doing prints and cards. One change, however, is that I think my ability to do commissioned works, at least for now, is very small. It's difficult to keep up with when I have a toddler underfoot. We will see how things go, and how much time I get to devote to art as these months go by.

   But anyhow....the studio is set up! The paints and brushes are ready! And I am more than ready! 2016 is getting off to a busy, amazing start!~
