So it’s been… what? A few years since my last blog post? I know, I know.. it’s absolutely shameful.
In my defense, I WAS returning to work after a 10 year absence, so I had a lot to prove. For a long while, there just wasn’t any time or head space at the end of the day for art-making.
But so far, my career has got itself (mostly) back on track (knock on wood), the kids are doing ok, and my house isn’t falling apart – win!
There’s also something about September that makes me think “time for another ’30 Paintings in 30 Days’ challenge”, but since Leslie Saeta isn’t doing that this year, I decided it was time for a little self-motivation!
Spend as many of my lunch hours as possible doing landscape studies in Photoshop.
