Ok, so I’m getting close to finished with this painting just some more work on hands and I should be done.

I really anxious to get this painting done because I want to start on a new painting plus other things. I have an idea of introducing more drawing from figure or from life. Plus I’m going to throw in a still life every now and then. I’m to a point where I feel I have neglected my charcoal drawing too much along with other aspects. It’s going to be a juggling act, but I’m sure I can manage.

On other anxious news, I’m still waiting for some materials to come in before I can start taking some good photos of my work. I just looked at my new website design (also something I’m working on when I have time) on another monitor and the photos are terrible. So as soon as I get in my polarizing filters and gels I’ll be spending a lot of time with my new camera. As of now I haven’t even turned it on!!

  1. I get so excited when I see the finish line to a project I am working on. My only issue is getting pumped back up to start a new project. Hopefully this new camera will inspire work on my Enrichment section and “Reuse, Recycle, Reduce Your Waist”. Love your excitement for all your passions! Don’t ever change!
