It has been a crazy, crazy two weeks! I have been pushing and pushing to get some work in the studio completed. I've finished building two sculptures, and was working feverishly on a new piece... a mixed media painting! It is for a fundraiser, here in Charleston for the South Carolina Aquarium, and I have had an absolute ball working on it. I can't wait to take a couple of good photos and share them with you. Maybe tomorrow or Saturday I'll have them and I will be certain to post them here.
It's funny, this whole sketching thing. I used to sketch all the time in college, and got a little out of the habit in recent years. I still enjoyed sitting down sometimes, if I was in the mood, and working on a piece, but I didn't do it regularly. Ever since our trip to San Francisco, I have been really, really enjoying working in my journal and my sketchbook. I think that it will be the lasting influence from those weeks in San Francisco - the drawing and the sketching. And I am so thankful to have rediscovered it! What a joy!
And so this piece that I have been working on came from my sketchbook. I did it while in SF and as soon as I heard about the fundraiser, I knew it was the sketch to turn into a painting. I love how it turned out and I cannot wait to share it with you!! Stay tuned!
