Some works in progress

I've been working on this girly for quite some time now, and she still isn't quite finished. Sometimes I feel a lot of pressure (totally put on by myself) to just createcreatecreate and whip things out as fast as possible. That has always been one of my strong points in working, is how fast I can get things finished, but sometimes I just need to take it back a notch and spend multiple days, even weeks, on a piece. It's been on my mind lately, so I just have been taking more care in the process... I don't want to not enjoy it anymore or become machine-like! So anyways, this girly has a few friends, that will be part of a series. I also decided to work big (it's gonna be fun to scan!) on this one (18"x24"). As a side note, I can't stop drawing peacock-style designs lately.

This is what I'm working on right at this moment. I've been digging fat bunnies lately. Also, impatient for flowers to start blooming. There are a few recipe boxes in the background, which have been out-of-stock in my shop for awhile now. The store I get them at randomly decided to restock them, after being out of them for months and telling me they were discontinuing them. Hmpf!

I have a catch-up food post tomorrow. I am SO ready for big huge summer salads. No more roots!!!


  1. lovely painting :) it's good to slow down and enjoy the process of creating art. when i had a lab to work in, i would go through those day of just churning out the prints like a factory. i always enjoyed the days where i could just go and work on a few prints, in detail and take my time. i miss that!

  2. Recently I've started to do all of my art really used to take me weeks to finish something. Some of those things that took a long time look really amazing...others, not so much. I'm proud of myself for being able to work fairly quickly, but at the same time I wonder if my work would be better if I spent longer on it. I sometimes find that if I take too long on a painting I get sick of it and move onto something else haha, I have a short attnetion span. Nice blog ;)
