After the Move...Back to Work


It really feels good to be back to work after the move to our new home. My hrs will vary each day of work. I'm planning on spending as much time as I can with my kids. My daughter starts Kindergarten this summer and I'm making the best of my time with her.

 When the kids start school at the end of summer, my hrs will change and I will be at work full time. I'm using my work hrs I have now to get a new body of work finished. I'm going to be changing my style somewhat with fantasy. I'm revisiting some old techniques of outlining my work. It won't be the same, but I'm hoping it will help my art art pop more.

 To the left is "Blackberry Fairy". She will be 11"x14" when completed. I still have a good bit of detail to sketch in the background, but I'm excited to share it in the next stage of my work in progress. I've been taking pictures of wild flowers outside of around the house. I've seen all kinds of animals and birds since living here and I love it.
I'm going to be starting back into fine art as well. There is a lot of blackberry vines on our property and I'm hoping they come out nice this year. I've already took pics of the flowers. I want to draw different paintings of the blackberries.

 Anyhoo, this is all for now. I'll be posting more WIP here in a few days.

It's been a long time since I last post on this blog. I've been battling with my health for months now. At times it's been very discouraging. The one major blessing out of it, is I feel like trying anything and everything new with art. I finally dived into acrylic painting. I also have been wood burning a little. I got a bunch of supplies for sculpting, which I still need to get a few more things, before I start. There's still a lot of things I want to do, like oil painting and pebeo art. I want to eventually do handmade jewelry. I just don't mean regular jewelry like you see everyone else doing. I would like to design or sculpt the pendents. Right now I'm having a lot of fun with painting blank wooden frames with mermaid, fairy, and other fantasy themes. This one to the right is in my personal collection. I'm working on two right now. A unicorn theme for my daughter and dragon theme for my son. The kids are very excited and enjoy watching me work on them. …

Life and Art

Life:
Once again I'm battling my health and it's a lot more serious than before. For now I do not want to go into it. I'm just praying about it, waiting on the lord and praying for a healing.

A lot has happened since I last posted. My Father in-law passed. It was a shock, because it happened so fast. Then a little over a week ago, my Mother in-law's boyfriend passed away. There has been so much death in the family over the past few years. I'm ready for a break from all of it, but I know there is no choice in the matter.

Art:
I've been working on a project, off and on when I'm not battling my health. I'm only about 50% through it. It is different from my other works and I will be doing a lot of my future projects this way. I've learned a lot of new colored pencil techniques over the last couple of years. I'm really starting to add them into my works. I'm sorta leaning away from the heavy paintery style with mixed mediums, and wanting my work t…

May News Letter Updates

I've been very busy the last couple of weeks working on line art for digital stamps and coloring pages. I have decided to offer these from my website. There are so many marketplaces to sell online, but the downside is they keep changing their policies, prices and looks of the shops. I really thought long and hard about where I want to sell my work. I know it's going to be much harder to sell them from my website, because I won't have the exposure that the online markets have. However, I'm going to keep my art at two online marketplace and that's Store Envy and Zazzle. The shops are free, so there is no monthly bill for it. I most likely will not offer my digital goods at store envy, because they have partner with a company and the price is a little to steep for me right now.
