It’s a holiday weekend in my part of the world, and where some might be heading off on a camping trip or a mini vacation I’m over here ramping up on work. The first of the month is always a really busy time for me as a whole new batch of looming deadlines rears its head. But, I kinda live for this stuff.
Today, I started out with a trip to the coffee shop to grab some go juice and now I’m in the studio working diligently on canvas prep for a painting/auction that I do every Saturday night on Facebook live. I started working on the drawing in secret earlier this week, and today I transfer the drawing to canvas, gesso and prep any other extra textural mediums I might use (in this case – the famous Golden Glass Bead Gel.)
Tonight, I’m painting a merlady — but a different one compared to anything I’ve painted before and I’m really excited about it.
Along with prepping her for tonight, I also had to finish up a project for one of the design teams I worked on, and while I can’t show the whole thing (yet) – I can show a snippet!
The colors make me swoon, I won’t lie.
Now to answer the question at hand – What do you really want?
Right now, my art studio is in total disarray and it’s making it hard to get everything done. I mean, I’m still doing it, clearly — but it needs some work. I also have some grand plans to transplant some of my outdoor plants inside this weekend and the art studio will be their home over the winter. I have got to make space. In more ways than one – I need space to work, I need space for plants and I need to create a space I want to be in. Right now, it’s chaos. So for the rest of the afternoon, I’m going to work on getting back into tip top shape.
