Working and working

These are some of the paintings and boxes I have been working.
They are (or were) for an art festival that I may not be able to attend :( but all is good, if I can"t do it this month I will go next month.
Now I think I am going to be listing these on Etsy. Ebay became so expensive! I love the bidding format but I will try Etsy.
Lollishops are going to be open soon. What is Lollishops? a juried art shop that I was accepted and I am so excited about it.
Today I draw the big painting on your right and I love the way it turned out, I hope I do a good job painting it. It is my rendition of "Madonna of the Long Neck" by Parmigianino
I am challenging myself to make more complicated paintings as I learn new techniques.
Diet update: I lost 20lbs yay! my arm doesn't hurt anymore neither my back, I think it was weight related. I feel so good!

These are great~ It's good to challenge yourself every once in awhile. I'm going to take my first portrait class next semester - it's a a bit backwards due to the fact I've been taking portait commisions for 7 years, but I KNOW there is tons out there to learn!
Happy Day!

I've been making boxes too. I think I'm addicted!
The new sketch looks beautiful and I'm sure you will do a wonderful job with the painting of it. :)

I LOVE that line drawing that you did of that large format painting. I would love to have a print of the drawing alone. I just love to see the process, and this just really speaks to me!
