Festive greetings to all of my students and blog readers, I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season!
I'm looking forward to a creatively productive new year and am excited to be sharing my journey with you! After spending the Christmas holiday at my family's farm in Virginia and having some quiet time to collect thoughts and generate new ideas, I've put together a plan for myself to stay more active on this blog, bring you all sorts of fun goodies like project inspiration and instructional videos, as well as develop new lessons for my workshops.
My first project for the new year was to reorganize/decorate my studio, with the focus being on my main painting area and the goal being to arrange the layout in such a way that it will be more efficient for working on all of my various art projects. I planned to move one of my big worktables over to the window to have better light in the daytime and shift the other table over a little bit to create more open areas against the walls for hanging art and inspiration boards...doing this forced me to pull out everything I stashed away under those worktables and decide what I was actually going to use vs could throw away or donate, what a task!
I'm much happier with the new layout and can't wait for my students to visit for workshops! The first one of the year, Color Essentials, is on Saturday January 12! Visit my workshops page for more details!
