I love art supply stores. The one here in town isn't the greatest, BUT it has it's high points. They also frame - so I can purchase mat pieces to draw on there - something that I have recently discovered. I have tried drawing on suede mat - which I LOVE - thanks to Kenna, of Sorrel Studios. She is an incredible artist. I have to admilt, I "stole" the idea from her, and I think she created a monster!!! Wonderful stuff to work on the suede mat is, but it takes some getting used to!!! I have also found other types of mat wonderful to draw on! Like today, I came across this mat that has a denim look to it - and an incredible texture, though it was on the green side. I drew this palomino appy youngster, 7.5"x9.5" on it. I am offering it for sale at $25.00. If you are interested, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org ! He is unframed... so you can do anything you want with him!

Alright!! So - It's been a while since I have posted anything. I haven't been very inspired as of late. I have a few pieces on the go right now - and I hope to get one finished today!! I hate having these streaks where I do nothing. I feel so bad for not making use of my studio when I am not drawing!! I mean - I have ideas in my head and there is just something keeping them from getting out right now!! VERY frustrating!! I was however, able to finish 'Pastel Nightmare'. My boyfriend actually liked it before I finished it - but I went ahead and did some final details on it and it turned out well. I ended up usung colored pencils to finish it off actually! I am trying to post a picture - but i am having some issues with my computer and getting the pictures in the right files!! Haha! I am going to reboot this thing, and if that doesn't work - I am just gonna boot it period! I will post the phtot once I figure out the problem!!

Forgive me Father, for I have slacked!! I am somewhat disappointed in myself. I have done nothing creative worth mentioning this week. I have been feeling a little down and bummed out and uninspired since my other half has gone back out of town to work. The first few days are tough - but I am feeling better and hope to get on it starting this evening. I have some really good ideas for some interesting pieces - I have prepped a piece of paper for something that I want to do... so I hope I can find some motivation today!! I started this blog rarin' to go and haven't had much to post aside from old pieces!! So - I hope to have something to show after this weekend!! I leave you with a photo of where the "magic" happens! Not a great space to work - but it's all I've got until we move. Most of the time, I end up spread out on the living room floor - in fornt of big south facing window!!
