Having a spot of tea..
Hanging with their bird friends..
In the garden with the flowers..
Do you think I have gone fairy crazy?? Well you might be surprised to know these fun new prints I created were for a potential program in a major retail chain..ahem.. ( Michaels) but they didn't make it through!! I could just wallow in the fact I spent hours glueing and painting and drawing but instead I have decided to put them up in my shop for all those who feel they would like them. This way I feel its not a total loss, well to be honest my designs are never a total lost someone will always want them for something its just a matter of who, what and when.
I am sorry its been awhile since I last blogged but as you can see from above I have been very busy! I am currently working on my 5th fabric line, which is shall we say super cute and fun for boys, and that is all the hint I am going to give.
Recently at a college reunion an old friend pointed out that myself along with my best friend Ron are probably the only ones he knows of that still actually paint! I looked around and thought..well he is probably right and how strange this seemed. How could it be that all these art students ended up in media and teaching etc. and very few stayed true to the path they started out with. Funny how life just takes over, but I guess for me and Ron we could never imagine our world without a medium in our hand. So if the client didn't take my designs its no big deal.. its still the fun of creating that makes me feel full everyday and the thought that I get paid to do something that fills up my soul is the icing on the cake!
I am intending on trying to blog more.. but finding it hard to do with the amount of work I have on my plate now.. so guess what?? Once my cold is gone I am going to do some video blogs!! Yes people you are going to hear my voice and hear some words of wisdom. I have been meaning to do this for some time but have yet to get around to it, FYI probably because I hate my voice and always have, its neither feminine nor masculine.. its somewhere in the middle and I just hate it! Plus I have this distinct problem of speaking too fast, which probably is because I hate it so. Either way look out my videos are coming so prepare for it!
In the meantime I hope you all have a great day and get out your creative spirit, keep plugging away at your hopes and dreams and never let anyone try and bring you down.. just push them aside and walk on by!
