A few new sketches
I did these pencil sketches over the holidays. (sorry the pictures are so light. It's hard to photograph pencil on paper) They were inspired by this goldfish ornament of mine. I think I'll keep him out year round. Hopefully by next week I can start turning some of these drawings into paintings.
I have to say, this Christmas was probably one of the easiest, most pleasant holidays to date. We kept things simple which allowed more time to enjoy our family and friends. I feel soooo rested....... almost too rested. It's been hard to get back in the swing of things. This morning I was in a creative fog and needed to motivate myself to give the studio some much needed TLC.
So I decided to tear it all apart. Time to move things around and give it a deep cleaning before the new year. Boy was it dirty! I'm about half way through and feeling overwhelmed by it all. Do you ever start a project and then second guess yourself? I'm there, but I can't go back now. Classes start back up on Saturday, so I have a deadline. Wish me luck.
