Good morning! I just purged (I don’t like that word!) a bunch of old images from my webpage to start all fresh and clean. I also streamlined it so that I only have my contact page, sketchbook and homepage. I’m hoping it will be easier to manage. I also have a lot of images on Instagram so people could find more images there. It is my first official day of summer and I need to call the dentist. I’ve been putting it off for longer than I should. In the art world, I am thinking about purchasing a new laptop as mine is so slow. I am looking at iMac laptops. I’m very happy with my iPad and would like something that could work easily with the iPad. I want to be able to access the full photoshop program to edit my watercolor paintings. I think I need to make this purchase pretty soon so that I can work on stuff for my art show Alley Art Fest in Aurora on August 31. I’m going to print copies of digital and watercolor. I also want to try printing vinyl stickers. I’ve been in training for two days and just finished teaching last Friday so I am in a transition from crazy busy to relaxing. Thanks for reading my mind purge ;). Hope you have a great day!!
Welcome to 2017!!! Last year I worked so hard on my artwork. This year I am so excited to see where all my hard work will take me! I've already revamped my webpage. I am really thrilled with how easy it was. I am going to start a surface design class. I can't wait to learn more about surface design. Here's to a great year!
In the beginning of the school year, my art time is very limited. We are entering our 5th week of class. As a first grade teacher, I'm just beginning get my head above water. Last week was the first time that I've sat down with my watercolors for a while. It felt good to get out the brush and water and let it move around on the paper. There is something so therapeutic to watercolors. Today I finally got back onto my webpage and worked through some of the things I'd wanted to do here. I have new things I still need to add but I made a start. Next month I am beginning a children's book illustration class with Lilla Rogers. I am so excited for this class! I am trying to decide if I want to take another online class through CalArts. Maybe just one class is a good idea for the fall.
