Epic

I'm taking on a two by three and a half foot painting! I'm pretty excited to start working on it. Will my attention span hold out to cover the entire panel? We'll see. I'll have to get a good book on tape going and ignore the kids while they reek havoc and watch movies. This is a rough drawing of what the piece will look like. It's about sisterhood and all sorts of mushy and gushy stuff. This is huge, I hope it ends up as amazing as it is in my head. Wish me luck.

A little complaint: Remember when those paintings disappeared from my front porch? Never to be seen again. I was just thinking about that as I pack up paintings to ship to Park City. I really look forward to taking the large box into the shipping store with my small children in tow. That should be fun.

A little boast: Southwest Art magazine just accepted me into their artists under 31 deal. Not only will I be in the magazine, but they liked my piece so much they are using it on their post card to advertise the issue. Cool.

Congratulations! What a wonderful Mother's Day present!

Good luck with the new painting. I can't wait to see it when it's done. I am interested to see what you do with it, being a big sister and all.

I love your sisters painting already. I can't wait to see the finished product. That's great about the art mag. What a great thing. It's so much fun watching your art career take off.

When you go to take your pieces to the ups store, make a stop off here and drop off your girls at my house.
