OH MY GOODNESS! Look at this beautiful painting by my dear friend :iconcrayonmaniac:!

Moonstone by crayonmaniac
Is it not absolutely GORGEOUS?
She is painting a lovely series of gem-based fantasy portraits, Here is the other one in the series:

Jade by crayonmaniac
She is so inspired! :love:
Not much has changed on my front. I am still loving my new job teaching at the university. I am teaching Flash this semester, so maybe I will share some examples I will have to do for my class.
I'm plugging away on my book. I'm at chapter 26, Yay! Will I ever finish? I don't know...some day I hope!

How are you peeps doing?

I am not on much these days, I pop in and out and fav here and there but that is about as far as I get. Work is just keeping me too busy at the moment for much else. I keep hoping things will settle down and I will have more time but then another project pops up and there I am again...I've been itching to do some painting and have some ideas. I've collected some lovely stock but haven't gotten any farther.

I am actually surprised if any of you have stuck around long enough to read this :lol: If you have God bless you! :tighthug:

I know I haven't been on here in forever. I peek in every now and then but I haven't dropped by to fav or visit too many of you and for that I am sorry. All I can say is I will try to visit as I can and maybe I'll have a little more time in the future to be active on dA.

I wanted to clear out the old journal, there was a lot of sadness at the beginning of this year. So much that I didn't think I would get past it for a while but I have. Good things have happened recently in my life. Things that have kept me busy and away, but I am enjoying life and doing well.

I am now a Lecturer at University of Houston - Clear Lake! I am teaching Web Design, Director of a new Digital Media Studies Center, and also helping with their Web site.  It's a wonderful job and I am very happy!! Everyone has been so nice there, and so appreciative. It's a wonderful working environment.

I also have a new horse!!! Hylander by LeeAnneKortus His name is REW Hylander, and he is a beautiful Arabian gelding! My mare, Pocus, is very happy to have a friend again, although she bosses him all over the pasture ;-) Hylander and Pocus by LeeAnneKortus Hylander rides wonderfully, and I am looking forward to many wonderful days of working with him!

My puppy, Jax, is getting quite big! a bigger Jax by LeeAnneKortus He is now about 9 months old and weighs close to 60 lbs.! He is still very puppy-ish and is very silly

In other yay news, I was asked by Photoshop Creative Magazine if I would like to be featured with my The Butterfly Bringer by LeeAnneKortus in one of their upcoming issues! :la:
Of course I said YES!! I'm so excited that they liked my work that much. I enjoy that magazine a great deal and it just knocks my socks off that they want to feature me in their Reader's section! :faint:

Life is good lately! I'm spending a lot of time preparing for teaching, and enjoying my new horse. There's been a lot of work to do around the barn with the new boy. But I love being outside so it's been worth it :D

I hope everyone is well, I have some art works in progress, but nothing to post yet. I will try to catch up eventually, but I hope you all are well and are busy being creative!! :tighthug:

Explanation

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 11, 2012, 4:19 PM
















SCRIBBLINGS








I realize it has been a long time since I have journaled. Much has happened since early February when I wrote this last journal. I have hardly been on, and I feel like I owe those of you who have been faithful friends an explanation.

Life has dealt me some knocks in the last few months. As most of you know, I lost my beloved horse in the Snow by LeeAnneKortus at the end of January.  In March, I had to say goodbye to my dear old dog, Reese My Buddy by LeeAnneKortus He was a sweet boy, and it was hard to say goodbye, even though it was time. He had several strokes over the last year, and I finally had to face the fact that it was his time to move on. RIP my dear friend.

I have been finishing up the last semester of my Master's study program and finally, I graduated!
graduation 2012 by LeeAnneKortus It was a really difficult semester, one of the hardest so far, but it paid off because I am to have a job!! Teaching Visual Communications, and Beginning Web Design at an ITT Technical School Campus starting in June! I have been through the interviews and am waiting to sign the final paperwork. I am very happy about that, my family has been struggling financially, and times have been very tough. If it weren't for scholarships and my Mom's help I wouldn't have been able to finish school.

A dear friend helped me to purchase an Aussie puppy. His name is Jax and he is a real clown and has given us a lot of reasons to laugh (and a lot to clean up as well!).   Jax by LeeAnneKortus
Things were looking up, and I was feeling really positive. I was feeling like being creative and wanting to move forward, and then, just two days ago tragedy struck again.
My favorite kitty, Simon, somehow got out of the house at night and got run over in the street. I have been heartbroken over it, and just haven't been able to concentrate or feel creatively motivated. I know I'm behind with keeping up with your work. I'll try to get back in the swing of things soon.
I have a commission or two I need to finish but with this happening it's kind of hit me in the gut and I haven't been up to it.

I appreciate your patience, I know I'm not the only one who has  lost a dear four footed friend, :iconbloodyvoodoo: lost her precious bunny Pullo just a little bit ago...he was a wonderful bunny and I know her pain and share her feeling of loss. I sometimes feel like there's a big hole in my heart lately.

I have a wonderful family and they have been very supportive and caring. I'm trying to be strong and get better. It's just difficult.  I appreciate those of you who still watch me and who have been there for me over the last couple of months, some of you have been with me for all the years I've been on dA. :love:  It means a lot to me!

devastated

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 18, 2012, 6:14 AM
















SCRIBBLINGS








I lost my beautiful horse last night. We had been together since he was 6 months old. I was on the way home from class and my husband called me and told me he wasn't acting right. We think he may have had colic, but we didn't get to him in time. We tried everything to try and save him but to no avail. He died last night.

I am heartbroken and don't know how active I will be on here.

Sharing a video and still not really back...

I'm still not around but I have been recently enchanted by this video and song!  Had to share it on here!

youtu.be/IOu0DuxFAT0

JELLYBEANS!!! :la: :la: :la:

I should be back and doing features again after December 15th!! :blowkiss:

Hey Everyone! :wave:

Just a note to let you know that it's the end of the Fall semester and a very busy, hectic time for me. So I will be on here very infrequently. I will not be very good at answering comments or keeping up with favs, and probably won't be commenting on journals either.

This semester has been very difficult for several reasons, the coursework has been much tougher than before and there have been other personal issues that have made things more stressful as well.

The semester ends mid-December and I will be back on as usual after that :-)

Also, for those of you who are interested in my jewelry, and would like to purchase some, I am going to run a Christmas sale just for those of you who watch me! :love: If you want a 10% discount on anything on my Etsy site: www.etsy.com/shop/starrydream note me on here and I will give you a discount code!  This is for now till Christmas!

Thanks for all your recent support and kind words....Massive :love: to you all and :smooch: and :tighthug:

Fail

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 17, 2011, 6:46 PM


















SCRIBBLINGS




I'm feeling a bit deflated.

I just had to let a major contract go....possiblity of making $ a lot of money but I just couldn't do it.
I didn't really understand the content of it, and it just seemed beyond my skill. It wasn't art related or web related, and I just wasn't getting it, so I finally just emailed the company and told them I couldn't do it.
I hadn't been paid anything yet, so it shouldn't be too complicated to terminate the contract.

But now I'm feeling a bit....I don't know....squashed? and stressed...although at the same time relieved because this had been weighing on my mind for some time and I was worrying about it constantly.

I still have some Web contracts that may come to fruition, we'll see. Times have been very difficult money-wise. I'm hanging in there and hoping things will turn around and I'll be able to find a good job after I graduate in the spring.

Maybe this will give me more time for art now...

Keep me posted on stuff going on in your lives! I will try to drop in and check up on you all!

:blowkiss:

Stamp FUN and Stuff

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 27, 2011, 2:36 PM


















SCRIBBLINGS




Hello Dear Friends and Watchers! :wave:

First I want to express my joy at being involved in a recent stamp project for the dear :iconannezon:
It was a special idea involving several kind and generous folks on here who felt some love was needed.
You can find links to all the lovely stamps here:
Love Bubble by crayonmaniac
I am so happy I was included in the group! :happybounce: :love:

In other news, I have taken on numerous contract jobs recently, and the Fall semester just started back up, so I may not be on as frequently or respond as much as I usually do.
As always, if you post something that I haven't faved and you would like me to see it and give it some love please note me with the link!! I am not kidding, it's easy to miss stuff on here now that groups are in play, and though I try to catch up...I always fall behind. I don't want to miss your work, so send me a note and I will try and drop by and check it out! :+favlove:

Most of the contract jobs I have taken on are Web sites, but two are art related! Yay!
I seem to find the Web ones the most often...I wish I could find more in the art illustration arena, but I'll just have to keep pursuing being a top-notch talent :#1:

I miss being on here as much, but I don't have a lot of time to myself, and probably won't until the Christmas  holidays.
Classes are good, I'm excited about the semester, but they do take up my free time....what little there is of it.

Keep me posted on stuff going on in your lives! I will try to drop in and check up on you all!

I graduate May 2012!! Not that much longer to go!!!! :iconlawooplz:

Tough times all over and Open for commissions

SCRIBBLINGS




:wave: Hello my friends!!

I hope all of you are doing well, and enjoying your Summer!
I had a wonderful time on my brief trip to New Orleans! It was great to see my friend Nathalie again and visit with her!

I know that a lot of people are having tough times now, with the economy, lay-offs, and the cost of just living on a day-to-day basis. I have hesitated to bring up the idea of commissions on here, but I am needing to do what I can to contribute to my family's income, and my recent poll showed that some people might be interested.

I've done portraiture in the past, Portrait of Lori by LeeAnneKortus is an example of a digital portrait I did a while back. I can also do them in colored pencil, pastels, or graphite.
I would also do a commissioned piece of an O.C. or a fan portrait of one of your favorite people or characters from literature.

If you wish to have it printed here on dA, I will drop the price down to cost only, and allow you to purchase it that way, or I will just send you the full-res digital file. You will be able to use the portrait for any purpose other than claiming it as your own work. I will retain the right to post it in my portfolio as an example of my work, but will not use it to make a profit through prints, etc.

Portraits of People or O.C.'s -  graphite/ black and white
head and shoulders only, simple background at 8 x 10 size - $60

Mom in the hospital again...why I'm a bit inactive

Hey everyone,

My Mom fell and broke her hip the evening of Good Friday. She has been in the hospital since and I have been up there as well. I'm on a laptop so I'm able to be on a bit, but I remain horribly behind in answering your lovely messages. I am sorry! :(
I am operating on little sleep and I'm a bit stressed as I have final projects due next week and all this has put me a bit behind.

I really appreciate those of you who continue to support my work and who watch me! :love: :heart:

I hope to be back in full force in a couple of weeks!

I plan to get caught up this weekend, and do a HUGE feature of some well deserving people and new friends that I have recently made...and wonderful new ART!! Yay!! :iconexcitedlaplz:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Just letting everyone know I may be away for a while...I had to take my mother to the emergency room late last night and will be up at the hospital with her a lot. She is having heart issues and has a heart cath scheduled for Monday.
So if I don't answer immediately you will know why.

Also, Christine :iconcrayonmaniac: gave me the most beautiful features, and I also have a gift I received from :iconbloodyvoodoo: that is WONDERFUL! And I need to give her some love on here!! I promise that a feature is forthcoming!!

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my latest piece!! It really makes me all happy inside!!! :iconjoyplz:

Okay, So pursuing a Masters degree full-time is a LOT of work. I am buried at the moment.
I try to check in here occasionally, but currently am VERY far behind.
If I don't reply to your comments immediately or if I fav and run, please don't take offense!
I just can't keep up.

I actually thought about taking a leave of absence and turning off everything but I just couldn't do it.
I would miss all of you too much...I miss chatting and exchanging messages with you as it is :tears:
I have very very little time to paint, or do much else for that matter, so my submissions will be few and far between.

If you have something that really needs attention or you think I would just LOVE, then please, by all means, send me a note! I'll go give it some love.

Features will have to be on hold for a bit as well, until I get a break and can show you some more lovelies.

Until then, much love to you all :hug: :blowkiss: I'll catch up when I can.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would like to thank all of you in advance for your favs, kind comments, and general support of me and my art! You are all wonderful!! :iconbwavoplz: I appreciate them all! What I'm trying to do is spend more time visiting your pages and commenting and faving your work than saying 'Thank You'. It also gives me more time to work on my own stuff.
Love and the usual :heart:'s and :kiss:es!!!

Lee Anne

SCRIBBLINGS




Helloooo Lovelies!!! :blowkiss:
So I told you I had some good news.....
I have, up until this semester, only been able to take one or two courses at a time, due to lack of finances. But a wonderful opportunity has come my way recently that will allow me to be a full time student this semester AND will allow me to graduate by the end of this year! :iconexcitedplz:
On the last class of last semester, two of my professors approached me and offered me a Teaching Assistant position with them for this semester!!! :la: Not only does it pay for my tuition for 9 hours, but it also pays me a stipend!!
I am so very excited!! I am wanting to be able to teach at the college level and this will give me wonderful experience and allow me to work toward my degree and make enough to help ease expenses! It is an answered prayer I can say that for sure!!
I had my first meeting today with my professors and our group so it's all official now and I can make it known. I wanted to wait until everything was for sure before I blogged about it :D

Hope everyone is doing well! I'm working on a couple of digital paintings and some new poly clay stuff too :-) :hug:s to all of you!!!

I had a couple of late birthday gifts that I'd like to feature, the first was a wonderful piece of art by :iconvisualpoetress:
Under The Harvest Moon by VisualPoetress
It is just adorable and I love the intense colors!! Here is more of her lovely art:
Forest Nymph and Her Friends by VisualPoetress   The Beautiful Elven by VisualPoetress   Petal Faerie by VisualPoetress

And :iconhewsan: made this incredible video posted on youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrUEeY…
He is so very talented and I really appreciate the time he put into the video! More of his wonderful Art:
Peacock by hewsan   Highlander by hewsan   Who? Said what? by hewsan

As always, if you submitted something that needs love...please note me! I will give it some!! :heart:

Most of all :tighthug: to all of you who faithfully watch, fav, and otherwise encourage me!! You don't know how very much it means to me!
You've done so much good by your kind words of encouragement!! Much :love: to you all!!!

I'm taking commissions if you are interested for polymer clay jewelry at my Etsy (www.etsy.com/shop/starrydream)
There will be some new dragons there soon!! :D

I would like to thank all of you in advance for your favs, kind comments, and general support of me and my art! You are all wonderful!! :iconbwavoplz: I appreciate them all!
