Just recently finished this small piece for the gallery. Pieces that I do with a more natural theme seem to sell much quicker for some reason. After taking Misty Mawn's online class I feel I've learned a lot so I believe art with my women will have a fresher look to them when I next do one.
Also, I'm very excited about going to Art and Soul retreat in Las Vegas to take Julie Haymaker Thompson's workshop. I leave on Tuesday morning for a 5 hour drive east taking it nice an easy with a book on cd, snacks for the ride and time to clear my mind. It's been awhile since I took off by myself and I'm needing it badly. I'm busy with calligraphy work so I'm hoping I won't have to take any with me to do in the evening while I'm there. I just want to take a hot bath, watch some tv, sketch a little and get into a bed by myself. I'm going to have to work my little fingers off tomorrow if I'm going to make that happen but it will be worth it.
I haven't been to Las Vegas since 1989 and I know it's a different city today. I'm excited to see the hotels and the attractions that have been created for the visitors. I'll have much to report when I return.
