The New Studio!

It's bigger, better, and with gigantoid windows--yeah!!! :D ...It needed a lot of work, and I'm still working on it. When I first moved in this winter it was bright red and yellow. Kinda looked like Ronald McDonald had some kinda s&^%$@ disaster in there! :O ...Luckily Matt was gracious enough to once again help me paint yet another studio. Now it's kinda light and dark blue :) Work still needs to be done on it, but it's getting there. I am undecided about the dark blue/purple...It might need to be repainted white, so it's more spacious and peaceful. (Interesting how color affects mood-- color psychology :) Once my roomie helps me get my lights up I'll know if the colors are right...all shall be revealed!

Moving Shop!

Not to far away though! (Just another Etsy click away)... Yup, that's right-- Mr. Chicken is getting his own Etsy shop!!! (your place for all things chicken)...

The Chicken seems to be my top seller, in terms of my art, so I thought he deserved his own little corner of the internet. And they frequently say on Etsy, that having a "cohesive" look I'm going for a "cohesive chicken" look. Here's the banner! Should make for an interesting adventure...

And here's the link! :)

Going Home...(At least for a visit)

So I have been "home" for the past week or so. And I've got to say, I've really enjoyed it. I come from a little town called Stoughton, which is in southern WI, and it is really rather charming. I think as a child I did not appreciate this fact, as I was a child, and most likely pre-occupied with other things-- such as school, basketball, drawing pictures, and whichever boy I happened to have an unrequited crush on at that time... And also worth noting, the community has become rather artsy in the last decade, so that is extra cool!

I have also spent a lot of time in Madison, where I went to college, and also spent a decade. It has been fun catching up with family and friends, and seeing how things have changed, and what has remained the same. I think being "away" from what you consider home really helps cultivate an appreciation for your loved ones, and also the experiences that have made you who you are.

With all this said I am still looking forward to going back to Savannah and my art studio-- in certain ways I am inspired to go forth and create-- Yeah!! But I am also looking forward (in advance) to my summer, return visit to WI :)
