Last week, my 9 to 5, four month term position ended.
And now my friends, the fun begins. :-)
AS grateful as i am for the experience (and the money),
i am more grateful to get time to myself again,
time to make art and to write again.
I plan on using this time wisely.
Over the weekend, i started this portrait.
The niece of a friend...Nowhere near done, but a beginning, at least.
i love new beginnings...
I'll share more pics as the painting progresses...
i'm still trying to loosen up whenever i do portraits.
It's the hardest thing for me...
i'd love to do portraits like this, by Melinda Cootsona:
or like this, by the incredible Karin Jurick...
but alas... there is no sense in comparing myself
a nice, clean workspace...
And a quote to remind me
that's is ok when it gets messy again.
Wishing you all a great day.
Thanks for stopping by...
