Busy holidays

It was a fantastic holiday for me… hope yours was, too! My darling husband got me a commissioned piece of art from a wonderful local artist, Josh Talbott (http://www.joshtalbott.com/) of a white humpback whale breaching. I’m in love with it. I’ll post a pic for you later.

On other fronts, I finished up some commissions and have been doing a lot of watercolor and acrylic sketches. I’ve also filled up yet another sketchbook with plenty of ideas. I probably have over 75 compositions I can turn into paintings… now to find the time. My cats got into one of my wet palettes and tracked black acrylic on our hardwood floor. Gives it kind of an artsy funky look (yeah, that’s how I’m dealing with it for now).

Here’s a taste of what’s coming… I’m really steering toward a very geometric/patterned style. I have my drawings dialed in, but I’m still trying to find my painterly style that works for me.
