Short version: Child #3 arrived in January. Back to work three weeks later. I have also been involved with both state and national horse organizations, organizing real-life horse events, and my business is only getting busier despite the temps climbing into the triple digits (summer is NOT prime riding time in the Sonoran Desert!).
I hope all is well with you and I hope that I might get into a semi-regular habit of posting things again as I have had a few art projects come my way, just not the time to process them for web presentation.
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Forever. It will be 14 years in December. Remember when you had to go through 10 pages to submit an image and it was focused on skins and things more than drawings?
Oh, and I've had this same account this entire time. I used to be in the habit of plowing through my gallery and cleaning it up now and again.
2. What does your username mean?
Lantairvlea is the name of one of my Guenitha characters. It means dark blue in their language because Guenitha go for descriptive names and she is predominantly dark blue.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Horsey, creative, persis
When I had more time I used to go through my watcher's galleries and leave a nice critique. Feedback on what I liked about their work, their strengths, and also weaknesses and how I thought they could make their work stronger moving forward. Had I the time I would do this with every new watcher, but I know not everyone appreciates such things, but it really is in the spirit of helping and giving back as you all suppory me.
Anyway, for those of you who watch me, new and old alike, if you want some feedback just comment here and I will take the time to go through your gallery and share my thoughts. I appreciate the support and enthusiasm fo
I am still trying to sell a bunch of art (see previous entry).
Life is super busy. I haven't mentioned it here previously, but part of the busy-ness comes in the form of a toddler and an infant. I think I have a couple more years before I really have time to sit down and seriously art again (especially since Child #1 doesn't take naps anymore).
My business has also taken off in crazy ways (like if I get any busier I am going to require a waiting list) with opportunity to have access to more space (we just need to build the facilities, ha!).
So still here. I try to keep up on comments and notes, but I haven't checked submissions in a whi
Edit: Purchased pieces removed and more drawings and paintings added. I will continue to add to this until I have nothing left to add!
I am highly motivated to move on a lot of my original artwork. If you see something in my gallery that you like and are curious about ask me! My piles of art stacked under the bed really do me no good, they need to be out in the world and enjoyed, plus I could use the extra cash (can't we all?). So as I have time I will be compiling a really large list of artwork for sale and prices. For the moment if you are interested in any of my traditional/real media works shoot me a note or comment or whatever and
