A lot has been going on in the last year. I've been trying to figure out what direction I want to go with my art. I've been experimenting on different surfaces and I've been working on new techniques. I finally feel like I'm moving in the right direction with my work. I've been concentrating on the drawing and painting side of art and not the business. I'm still selling art on ebay and I've got a good bit of commission work this year.
I'm getting more into acrylics with colored pencil. I really love how they both look together. Anyhow not much of anything else has been going on.
I've made the decision to start doing more realistic fantasy work. I will still be doing my fun non-realistic art, but I want to get into doing realistic art as well. I'm looking for reference material now. I'm not sure what I want to draw, but I want to do a lot of detail and have a background in it. I've never done realistic fantasy art, only some large angel portraits when I was younger. I've done a lot of fine art, such as still life and some scenery pieces. I love to draw moss, trees, and rocks. So maybe I'll draw something with some of those elements. Can't wait to get started
I got my website moved. I still have the same URL. I'm happy with the decision. Also I made the decision to take a long break from selling art. I need to focus on getting better at drawing and spending time with my baby girl, Savannah.
Right now I'm working mostly on mermaids. I will be doing that for the next few projects. Then I hope to get into something else.
So basically most of this year if not the whole year, (art wise) I will just concentrate on drawing. I hope this will be a more productive year than last year.
