Hi there. So... I thought I had a great start to this whole blog thing, but it turns out frustration is the word of the week for me. I've been trying to finish a number of projects around my humble abode -- I've even made a list for myself of pieces I need to finish (there are about 12 on there right now. Excessive, I know). The list has graduated from a plain piece of notebook paper to a bright orange piece of scrapbook paper. Yes, this is getting serious. I've never had so much going at once, so I suppose my focus is a little scattered right now. Here are some pictures of what I have floating around, saying "finish me" as I walk by them in my little apartment:
What do you think, can I get these and about 8 others done before the new year? READYSETGO!
I do have great news, though. I stopped by Michael's today to start my display board for advertising painting classes. Add one more creative endeavor to the list, but this one should turn into a fun adventure!! I get to teach landscape, floral, seascape, and still life images -- something I don't really gravitate to myself, actually. I'm usually a "tell a story or say a message" kind of painter. Example: the tree above in fabric is off of the 4 elements.... and the other elements will get worked in there eventually! So it will be a nice change of pace, and a great challenge, to talk to people who want painting practice in areas that I normally wouldn't think of teaching.
Ok, off to stare at more unfinished work!
