Life changes

It’s amazing how quickly your life can change. In a matter of months I no longer work for the place I’ve been for the past 18 years. My husband got a new job and they keep changing his schedule. My nights, days and weekends are all a blur now.

I’m trying to get a handle on things and add some structure back to my life. I don’t mind some chaos, but these last few months have really done a number on my mental state. The good part is that I have much more time to concentrate on my art. I was able to do a painting for my husband for Christmas that I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while now. He loves it! I’m pretty happy with it, too.

I’m really loosening up my style, and the orders for custom works are still coming in. I also launched my own website — which was WAY overdue. It still has a long way to go until I’m satisfied, but it’s a step in the right direction.

New watercolors to play with

Woohoo! Happy New Year’s to me… splurged on some Daniel Smith watercolors in some very yummy colors. I lost some of my old ones in the move a few years ago and have been missing them ever since. Can’t wait to play!

I also have been sketching again… a lot. Wolves and women, seahorses, more owls and horses. And I promised a posted picture of my Josh Talbott original. Here you go.
