Winter Sketching

What's Going on with me and my Health;

It's been a while since I posted on this blog and I figured it was time for a little update. I'm still very sick, but my major Dr. appointment is tomorrow to the specialist. So I'm really hoping and praying that the Dr. can get to the bottom of what is going on with me. It's made me very aware of how precious life is and how important it is to be healthy. I've been told by so many people that I'm to young to be going through what I am, but that's a part of life for some people. Everyone has ups and downs, whether it's health or finances or something else. The thing is to stay positive and trust in God. There is always someone out there that is worse off.

Art News;

Over Thanksgiving Roy moved my studio furniture out of our daughter's room into our bedroom. There is a little office space in our bedroom, but it's open to the bedroom. I got most of my furniture crammed in there. I don't really like working while Roy is sleeping, but that's the way it has to be for now. Eventually I want to get a outside studio space built. Hopefully in a few years I'll get one.

Lately I've been trying to get a little bit of balance with art, my daily mom/wife stuff, and my health. It seems like I can't get the energy to finish a piece, so mostly I've been sketching. I figured I can get a bunch of sketches finished ahead, so when I feel better I can have a lot of projects to start :) Above are three sketches that I'm working on. The first one is a valentine angel. It's sorta a remake of one I did years ago. The other two are winter angels. I only have one winter fantasy piece and I thought it would be a good idea to do some winter pieces.

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

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.

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.
