“Journaling, I believe, is a practice that teaches us better than any other the elusive art of solitude — how to be present with our own selves, bear witness to our experience, and fully inhabit our inner lives.” – Maria Popova
“May I recommend a workshop that will change your studio practice and life itself? Anne is an artist who communicates with drawing and HEART like no one I know.” – Laura Nugent
Happy New Year! Technically this still applies since it’s my first post of 2015. Hope you all survived the Holidays. I had a record number of new Pet Face and Story Portrait Orders, which I am still very busy working on. I am also back at Lill Street playing in the wet dirt…made this last night. I’m titling it “Sunspots”. I have some new very pronounced ones on my face (gotta get more serious with that sunscreen). Someone recently mentioned it to me, and since then, it has developed into a bit of a self conscious distraction. I think I nipped it in the bud here. Art is the best kind of therapy!
