We've been very busy but not necessarily in the studio. Christine's been working on Scrapimal necklaces, minis and other pieces of art; hoping to build up inventory for the coming art show season. I had been doing the same, but I found our recently that my day job was being eliminated so all my time is being consumed with my job search.
We applying to various juried art shows for the upcoming year. Actually adding more since there's a chance I'll be unemployed and selling art may be the only way to put food on the table. Once we have an establish schedule I'll post it up so you can see it.
My studio is a mess. I have several small paintings in progress, but there is a 4' x 6' canvas taking up a lot of space. I really wanted to paint a picture of Trafalgar Square, taken when were there a few years ago. With the stress of joblessness and everything else going on I just wasn't able to put in the time necessary and even then, no saying I would be able to pull it off.
Instead I'm painting my largest stripe painting to date. It's really exciting and I believe I will be able to find a great home for it once it's complete. I'm using my favorite earth tones. I can't wait to finish it.
