Layers, and layers of Colored pencil!

Well I may be jumping the gun just a wee bit, but I do believe my cousins picture is "almost" finished. Her patience for this piece should be commended. Waiting a little over a year for this is way longer than I intended. It is the biggest Colored Pencil rendering I've done to date 24X20. Gently layering with care, I seemed to have developed quite a relationship with this picture. Sometimes it is hard to depart myself from a piece of artwork. I may have to do some grief work after this!!! ;) jk

What a Difference a YEAR MAKES!

Soooo, it's been a year since I posted to my blog site.  Wasn't even sure it still existed!

What a crazy year it's been!  It was quite a soaker, literally if you live in Ohio.  In February 2011, it started off with major flooding in my basement. And my basement is my art studio, or was my art studio.  It has taken almost a whole year to rearrange another room to use as my office/studio.  Actually, it is not quite finished as I envision it, but it's functional.  My basement I am still going to use as a partial work area. It's a great space.  Either way, things are moving along...slowly, but moving.   Unfortuately because of the hectic atomsphere in my house, constantly moving and rearranging, I haven't been to productive in my art and creative life.  This year will be different though!  And that is where I am going to start this NEW blog off, in making a difference from last year to this year.  How will I and my life be different in 2012?
