The Shallow End – November 2020

Hello November! So, Inktober didn’t last too long. I don’t usually work on the weekends, so it was hard to keep up. Plus, it honestly just wasn’t that fun… I have a lot of other stuff right now that I’m really enjoying, so it wasn’t that hard to let it go and move on… OhContinue reading “The Shallow End – November 2020”

The Shallow End – October 2020

Hello October! So much to talk about, so let’s jump right in! I’ve started painting with gouache again, finally! I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the medium for years. I love the way it looks, but hated learning to use it. It’s just so weird — it’s deceptively similar to traditional watercolor (as it technicallyContinue reading “The Shallow End – October 2020”

Make Yourself Comfortable

Where I live was entirely gloomy, rainy, and nearly cold last week. Like, couldn’t-sleep-with-the-fan-on cold. Like, actually-wearing sweats-because-of-the-weather-and-not-the air-conditioner-running-non-stop cold… So that’s it. I now declare it FALL.

And I’m also blissfully disregarding that this week the forecast is warmer and nearly in the eighties…Continue reading “Make Yourself Comfortable”

As I’m getting back into art outside my sketchbook, I’m trying to exercise someContinue reading “The Shallow End – September 2020”

The Shallow End – July 2020

Hello July! While I’m still not comfortable with re-opening my shop just yet, I’ve recently started to imagine what it would look like when that finally happens. It feels like kinda sorta starting to maybe get ready to re-open, which feels hopeful. I mean, I have a lot of art work I’ve made recently thatContinue reading “The Shallow End – July 2020”

The Shallow End – June 2020

Hello June! I finally feel like I found a natural rhythm to my work day. I took the pressure off myself to reach specific daily goals, and found that in giving myself that space to follow my intuition instead of a to-do list, I’ve become more productive overall. I’ve been painting and writing nearly everyContinue reading “The Shallow End – June 2020”
