Artful Thought

I have decided to introduce more of my art into this blog, yet keep my art blog on my portfolio website as well.

Storks, watercolor, 2010
Photographed, I need to scan it in sometime

This was done for my past two person show in September. It's a small watercolor.

I really want to get inspired again. In 2008 I was cranking out paintings right and left, and even though I painted 18 pieces in 2009, 2010 really dwindled with the stress of two jobs. But now I'm only at one job and have been here a year so I think I can start leaving work at work and get more done at home.

I'm a huge fan of watercolors! So I definitely like this! How did you get the pattern above her head? Did you mask it or put something down on the paper?

I do know what you mean about getting more artwork done. I feel like I do more work when I'm in school because I HAVE to, with deadlines and all than when I have all the time in the world. But it really boils down to getting into the routine of painting and making time (or not being lazy in my case) and just doing it. lol if that makes sense.
Great work! Heres to more art in 2011! haha

I think this one is one of my faves. I don't think that you have made anything that I haven't liked actually. I am going to have to buy some of your prints when we get the house (if). I think it would be pretty cool to have some of your art around, especially after you move because then you will kind of be in my face everyday, muwahahaha! :P
