It's been busy around here lately, hence the lack of recent posts. I'm hoping to have a new drawing posted in the next couple of days though, so until then, here is a general update on things.
Last weekend the local autumn festival took place downtown. Unfortunately, I couldn't attend the event, but I did submit one of each of the new prints into the art show. I wasn't sure how they would fare (not being the originals), so imagine my surprise when I heard that I had come away with a ribbon as well as a few sales! "Press - WV" won "Best in Show", and led to the sale of prints and two originals.
As hard as it can sometimes be to part with drawings, I'm stoked. This was the first show I had participated in in probably 8 years. It's given me the motivation to really start putting myself out there when it comes to shows and art groups.
Our would-be day off ended abruptly this morning after a call from S's scheduler. Looks like he is spending the morning/afternoon at work and I've found myself at the drawing board. I have a potentially cute drawing that I've been working on for a while now and it is testing my patience. Hopefully I can wrap it up today before our amended plans for the day resume.
Until then, here is a piece I finished up in the last couple of weeks.
This little patinaed guy sits on one of my favorite porches in Tennessee (if, that is, you don't count the massive, dive-bombing June bugs and blood-thirsty mosquitoes. The insect life in that state is insane, I tell you).
