What's Next?

Hello everyone!

November was a success!  I sold several pieces of my art work and NaNoWriMo wasn’t a total failure because I did not complete the 50,000 words as I had hoped but I did manage to get a respectable word count, so I at least have something to work with. 

December 2012:

December is going to be another crazy and hectic month with a couple of art shows coming up, a paying job, and art projects in the process.  A while back I stepped away from the traditional canvas because, well for one it was recommended that I do so and because the size of canvas I was wanting were a bit much for my budget.  As a result I went on the search for a new media that I could work with.   I have always loved the idea of getting things that people are throwing away and giving the items a second chance.  A second life I guess you could say.  So lately I have been painting on old table tops and computer parts.  Yesterday I was driving and I hit the jackpot.  I came across this old wooden door.  When I asked the owner if I could have it he graciously allowed me to have it for free since they were throwing it out anyway.  So, needless to say I am currently working on a very large project.  A beautiful tree because a solid door, and now that solid door will become a piece of art that will hopefully last for many years to come.  A third life…A new beginning.
