Hello friendly people all around the world! I’m just stopping in to share a bit about what’s going on right now. I’ve been working on a ton of new pieces… like seriously a ton! I think last time I checked in I told you about how I was inspired by these paintings of prisms, chevrons and geometrics of all sorts. And also how I was having a love affair with color but wasn’t sure how that was going to play out. I’ve been doing line drawings for so long and with the exception of adding pops of color with stones, hadn’t used any other color.
Here’s where that inspiration led me. I’ve been experimenting with UV resin. It’s pretty fabulous. It cures under a UV light or the sun (kinda cool, right).
These are just sneak peeks. There will be a more cohesive collection to show someday in the near future. Hopefully in time for NYIGF. Yes! Can you believe it? I’m doing that enormous trade show in New York. The word nervous does not even begin to describe my feelings. A little panicked might be closer to it. I’ve been pondering my booth design and display (read: freaking out about) for the last two weeks. Luckily I have enlisted the help of one of my dear super talented friends to help me with this. I think I’ll feel a whole lot better about the show once I’ve got the booth done. I have done trade shows before, get nervous every time, but this one is of a different level. Much larger, much more expensive.
So that’s it in a nutshell. Outside of my work life, I am having lots of fun with my kids. Summer has just begun for them and we’ve already hit the beach 4 times. No complaints there.
I’m also doing a 90 day challenge with some friends to get in shape. I’m done having kids, no more excuses. Those extra pounds just need to go… now! I’ve really been enjoying the challenge. And working out almost daily is something I haven’t done since college. And that’s why I don’t look like I did in college:)
How do you plan to celebrate summer? Any vacations planned?
While I don’t blog often, you can keep up with me on Facebook which is something I’m somewhat consistent with.
see ya later:)
