It has been a while... a REALLY long while. But I am back and determined to get going again with my blog and with small art creations, thoughts, lessons, projects,…
Lifebook 2013 is a year long online course with lessons from over 20 instructors. I signed up for it for several reasons… I want to sketch more and I want to commit to doing some art that is not directly for the classroom or customer orders. I am also going to need some PLU’s in a few years when I renew my teaching certificate so I thought I would get a leg up and apply for credit with this course. I don’t always have time to learn about and try out new materials and techniques for my personal art or the classroom; reading about the materials list and lessons from last year’s Lifebook was especially exciting!
I have that “it’s been over a month since my last post” guilt. It’s been one of those months that I have not slowed down at all and it has shown in many ways. It really caught up to me with my commissions recently. I am truly lucky in that when I get close to being finished with a commission and send a “semi-final” picture to a client I am usually met with a great response without many “corrections.” I do, of course, insist that each client be 100% happy with the piece he or she commissions and am willing and prepared to make any and all updates to make sure that the artwork (usually of a beloved pet) is everything that the client hoped for.
