where to begin?

August 27, 2008

So many exciting things happening in the studio right now, I don’t even know where to begin!  I just finished a pen & ink drawing for a lovely couple that will be taking some of their new notes all the way to Switzerland this month .

Finally managed to order a few samples of the new “Green Series” from my printer…(It will be like Christmas when they arrive!)…Sold four Foodie Prints to a lovely lady that requested them a little larger…that’s right folks!  Now I can offer a 10×12 (but for the moment, they will have to be special ordered, whereas I have 8×10’s in stock…just email me if you’re interested.)  Found a smidgen of time to draw up a new business card for Bekah, and photographed another house for inking.  Oh yeah, and I received a call from one of my most favorite clients…but I’m keeping that project under wraps for now.  I’m sure I missed a thing or two…but you get the idea…So if I seem a bit scattered for the next few days, know that it’s not the wedding taking over my life, it’s all about business.

Happy Wednesday!

Had my Thursday morning art lesson with a few extra apprentices today.  Joining the girls, were Raymond (an almost eighth grader) and Willy…(who will be entering 6th grade this year.)  Ray and Willy taught me how to distress paper like old documents…see Ray’s notes below…

The possibilities for which this trick could be implemented are endless…and clearly it is of interest to the “cool kids” so, we’ll file it away for safe keeping.  (boys if you’re reading this, it was a true pleasure meeting you, have a wonderful trip)

In other news, things are a bit hectic as of late…aside from weekends away, here’s the line up:

1.  Finish Pirate’s House Mural (note that it is barely started)

2.  Sell old car, buy new one…peachy I tell you!

3.  A few stray pen & inks

4.  Finish building David’s website…(golly gee)

5.  Scan / Prep / Order new prints for Etsy store...(this list is getting long…)

6. Scan Caty and Mary portraits…(been waiting for paint to dry for days)

7.  And open a new Etsy store…

…you get the idea….

Well, off to the races!  Happy Thursday!
