Mixed media portrait + a bit of news.

Things have been super busy lately, and I've found myself in the midst of several unfinished pieces. I was finally able to wrap up this little portrait last night. I started with graphite to create a fairly refined drawing and then went in with layers of watercolor after spraying with fixative. It is 8" x 10" in size on Rives BFK.

I promise I have a good excuse for the infrequency of posts in the last month and the big news is that we've bought a house! We started renovations last week and hope to be moved out to the country sometime in the next month. In the meantime, everything is in limbo. We're mostly packed up at our current home, but have quite a bit of work ahead of us at the new place, both indoors and out. Maintaining acreage is going to be quite different than the apartment life Sean and I are both used to living.

That being said, we're super excited to be officially starting our lives together in a new home. As things start to settle down and we settle in, I'm sure there will be plenty to post about (I can't wait to set up my new studio space!).
