Girl, what you got goin' on--Art Process

Here is a process from sketching to painting. I started the sketching in the car on a return trip back from Huntsville. Most of my sketches start this way...random moments in time, images recorded while waiting, riding, relaxing before bed.

I have tons of sketchbooks and journals. I keep one or two with me always stuffed in my oversized purse sizes are always judged by how many books it can hold...anyway, I draw, sketch, record notes nearly constantly and then dig back through the layers for inspiration, paintings, and laughs.

I couldn't live without my sketchbooks and journals. When I was a kid if I went to my parents to someone's house and they didn't have books or paper I was appalled. What kind of people are they? No paper, no books! I quickly learned to carry my own. It's a quirk that I won't apologize for...and my husband will just have to get used to my huge, heavy book filled purse. After all, I have to carry his books, too! :)

And you can buy this original painting here. So, go on have a look....

A world of change...

Recently I have been given a wonderful opportunity to focus on selling art and books. This has been a wish of mine for far too long and the universe has provided this opportunity for me! I am extremely thankful for this time and opportunity and I will also have the opportunity to focus more on this blog. That means more art, book and sketchy goodness for you! So, here are some things that have been keeping me busy lately...some paintings and some journal pages that I've recently done!

I've also updated my Etsy page with new books and....ORIGINALS! Selling originals is a first for me. I'm really excited and pumped about the possibilities...! Yeah!

Here's looking to a bright and happy future!
