As mentioned the other day, I took one night last week to sketch out some new girls while watching American Idol (I’m a dork) and came up with these 3 curly girls…as you can see, they are mostly in sketch mode still but the one in the foreground as least has a background and a dress…now for some arms…yeah, I forgot to include those! (I told you it’s been a while since I sketched!)
A couple weeks ago I did some finishing touches on my latest sisterhood/friendship piece but still feel like it needs some work…words on the dress, something else in the background? This is a 16×20 so it’s pretty apparent that there’s some empty space going on, so I still have yet to figure it out!
This is a piece I created a while ago, but never quite finished it, so here it is complete…now I have to scan it 6 different ways as it’s also a 16×20 and my scanner is much smaller. Then piece it together, edit, then take more photos, then list…I tell you, so much more than just painting pieces in this business!
Remember that pile of paper pieces all over the couch and floor from the mayhem of last week? Well I finally cleaned up…
But as usual, the dining room table took the brunt of all my projects in the process of being worked on, touched up or photographed. A clear dining room table is reserved strictly for when company comes over and that’s a rare thing!
I haven’t been able to do any painting/creative work this week and not sure I will be able to. I forgot how much extra work it is to hold down the “fort” and 3 ADD dogs without help, so days have been spent working to fill orders; nights are cleaning, laundry, dishes and more work. I’m looking forward to when David gets back on Friday and think I just might put my shop on hold for a couple days just to reconnect with him and take a breather.
I have more pieces I’ve worked on, but I’m still sticking it out with licensing and need to keep most of my non-girl stuff under wraps for a bit. But I’ll still try to provide glimpses of work each week. Thanks for stopping by and take a peek!
