A lot has already happened in 2014!
In January, I rescued two rat terriers from the woods. Yes, they were dumped in the woods with no microchips! And one had a protruding eye most likely from getting hit. It had to be removed, but she has made a full recovery. They are my very first dogs, and they are the best dogs ever
and we decided on the names Princess and Trixie (: I love to watch them play, and take them on walks as the weather improves.
As far as artwork, I was able to get involved with a local organization www.cloudpaintergallery.com/
And I have already sold one piece at my first gallery show
Still working towards drawing for fun again after taking my first and last art class in college. I learned quite a bit, but I am having to train myself to produce artwork for fun - and if I can sell it, that's just a bonus. I am currently involved in an environmental fieldwork internship, so not having regular homework has helped immensly with production of artwork. It's going to be a great Spring and Summer!
~~~ I really want to thank all of the photographers (stock and otherwise) who have let me use their photographs as references for my art. Quite literally I could not produce my drawings and painting without you!
I have been quite fortunate to have been given permission from excellent photographers to use some of their works by simply asking permission and giving proper credit where it is due! It never hurts to ask!
Thank you all so much!
