From here on out, I will no longer be posting everyday things on this blog. I will only be using this blog for fine art updates on new original art releases, product releases and special promotions and sales on fine art. You can follow my regular blog for all updates on life, art, and tutorials, etc.

New Art Studio

It's been a very long time since I last posted on this blog. A lot has happened. I became very sick again and found out I have a chronic health condition. So I manage it with a very strict diet. I still have bouts with it, but I do the best I can.

Since my last fine art piece, I have not done any fine art. Back last fall I reopened shop and I've slowly added art here and there. I also reopened my etsy shop, and have become more active with other shops and social media. At this point I'm not 100% sure what direction I'm going with art, but I will be very active trying to sell current works and making new works and products. 

The reason behind this is, my husband recently bought me a nice little building to turn into a art studio. This is something I've wanted for a good while now, because I'm cramped in a 7'x15' open office space in our bedroom. It's hard because my husband works night. So I have to work while he's asleep. It's just a shell, but we plan to turn it into my art space. So there is a lot of money and work going into it.

Clementine on a Red Cruet

It's been a long time since I've posted in this blog. For those who don't know it, I've been dealing with health issues. I had surgery almost three weeks ago. I'm doing much better now and getting back into the swing of things.

Since last updating, I did a tutorial of a "Clementine on a Red Cruet" for Colored Pencil Magazine. It's in their march issue. This is the second time I've done a tutorial for a magazine. The first time it was for a fantasy art magazine.

Now that I'm back. I really need to get hopping on some fine art. The pieces most likely will be simple smaller pieces. It depends on my work load. I might have some larger commissions lined up. I'm trying to figure out what I need to do with selling art. Ebay has changed so much and not for the better. Etsy might be where I'm headed. I'm not really sure yet. I would still like to sell from my site as well. It will take some time to get everything sorted out. I'm thinking about having clear out sell on some originals I've had for awhile. Whatever I decide, it will be updated here as well as my fantasy blog.

It feels good to be back into art. I'm very thankful my health is getting back on track!

My Blog

I decided to move this blog back to being my main blog for fine art for my website. I was doing most of my updates on a weebly blog through my site, but I've been having trouble with it from time to time and I can't comment back to anyone. I don't want people to think I'm ignoring them, I just couldn't comment. I've never had any trouble with blogger, so I will just stick with what works.
