new work: give and take

This is from a new narrative-type piece I have been working on, Give and Take. I have actually been making a lot of new work lately and am really thrilled about all of it. I had a good critique tonight which is always nice. I've been reading The Artist's Way (cheating...it's a 12-week book but I am taking it at my own, much slower pace) at the suggestion of Erika who writes the blog A Tiny Rocket. Reading this book and doing some of the activities in it have been helping with my "artist's block" which I definitely felt all summer. I don't want to jinx it by saying too much, but right now I have more ideas than I have time to make! Definitely a good thing. More updates on the new work soon...this is just one of many.

this post inspired me to read and to write, two things i haven't done nearly enough of lately. reading something that inspires is such a lovely experience.

Sarah, yay! I am enjoying it for the most part. It is really helping me find inspiration for my art every day, which is why I wanted to read it! Thanks for having me back as a sponsor again! I am really excited to finish up my guest post. :)

Vintch, why thank you! That is such a sweet thing to say. Thanks for following too!!
