There’s been a crazy huge gap in between posts and I am here to fix that.
So, as you may or may not know, I was recently working a job that required me to be there almost 60 hours each week.
It was terrible. And as you can imagine, completely got rid of any “free time” where I could work on painting. Luckily, I came to my senses and quit. Maybe it was a little sudden… and maybe I didn’t have another job lined up, and maybe I gave my boyfriend a panic attack about our bills… but all in all it was totally worth it!
Now I have two jobs, one working with toddler-preschool age kids – something I never imagined doing, let alone enjoying, but it’s been great – and another teaching classes for Paint Nite (aka teaching painting while drinking). So low stress, and unlike all my previous jobs, I don’t feel like I’m forcing myself into uncomfortable social interactions. Haha.
I’m still out there in the art world and I continue creating!
My work can be seen currently at the Storefront Gallery in Ferndale.
Valentine’s weekend also marks the start of The Dirty Show! I have a piece that will be shown there titled “Fur Blanket.” (hehe) I did most of this piece while working my crazy hour job, so instead of a painting I did a colored pencil piece. Go see it at The Dirty Show and vote it ‘Best in Show’! I will be adding it to my portfolio once the show is over.
Thanks for listening(er, reading?), dudes. Stay tuned for more work and updates to come 😀
