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 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.
