Time To Move On

It had been so long since I last posted a blog, I actually forgot the web address. Lots of things happened at the end of 2010. I was supposed to start a brand new era of my life, but like most things...that crashed and burned.

So it was a slow process but I've managed to put the pieces back together, make a few more mistakes, make a large number of good and bad choices, and here we are today.

I'm painting again. I'm writing again. I'm getting things together to work on self-publishing my first book, recapturing the journey of my Sketchbook Project 2011 journal, which is currently on display in Austin, TX but will be primarily on display in Brooklyn, NY and will travel to 4 other locations around the United States this year.

I received some bad news this past month. The gallery where my artwork is currently available for sale in New Orleans, LA, may no longer be able to continue showing my work, not me specifically but artwork not associated with its new arty owners. So its time to figure out what to do with my art in 2011.

Despite the bad, there are good times ahead.

I've contacted some galleries and hope to have my work on display at the November, 2011, 2nd Saturday Artwalk, just in time for Christmas! (fingers crossed). I plan on entering a contest through a local guild to for exhibit at Barnes and Noble in April, 2011. I will also be joining local artists in Washington, LA for Artmania on April 16, 2011.

Now I'm looking for a local gallery to showcase my work in the area. I have faith that the best place will be available to me soon.

I'm painting. I'm writing. I'm selling BeautiControl. I'm joining a sorority. I'm on the WRITE path. (lol) 2011 will indeed be a great year.

I plan on doing a better job of keeping up with my blog posts, so come back and read about whats going on in called life.
