I haven't posted here in almost exactly a year. A lot has gone on in the that time, some good, some bad. In that time I have become a grandmother to a beautiful little girl named Lilly. She simply sparkles!
I have a new job now working as an arts facilitator at Aspire of Western NY. I never understood how people could say that they love their job until now! I truly do.
I have been experimenting with some different media with some success. This was my latest one titled "Solace". It is a 16"x 20" mixed media of oil and acrylic paint, glue, kosher salt and pancake syrup. Yes, you read that right. It was quite fun to do and turned out great. The client that commissioned me is very, very happy with it and that makes me very happy.
My next project is repainting an old slot machine. To be honest, I am not looking forward to this but it's for a friend. I can tell it's going to be very tedious work and not a lot of creativity is involved. Oh well, the things we do for friendship!
I promise to post more often. Now that I feel my life is getting somewhat "normal", my creativity is coming back. I hope you'll join me now and then!
