I am the Queen.

Well, where to begin... lots has happened over the holidays. Procrastination, accomplishments, friendships were lost, relationships were started... among other things. And oh yeah.. it's New Year's Eve! It's been a little hectic.

For starters, I was Queen of Sales again last week in my unit for Mary Kay. Go me! I sold over $700! Unfortunately, meeting was canceled last week because of the bad weather and we were able to celebrate.. bummer. But that's ok... I'll just be queen again soon!

I have some doodles I was working on at my art show this past Final Friday. It's Wonder Woman. She's not finished yet, but as soon as she is, I'll scan her in and get her up here. I do, however, have a drawing of Hawkgirl. I started her a while ago, but had to stop because of my freelance load, so I finally finished her this past week. Here she is:

(And just for the record, the scanner does my drawings NO justice in the shading department.)

So I think February will be my last month at the Pendleton now, not January. I'll be out of town the last week of January, and I want to be there for my last month. I'll keep you posted with any details.

That's all for now, back to work...

Ol' Blue Eyes... Sorta

So today was one of those days where I was obligated to do nothing. That doesn't happen.. hardly ever. I did the Jingle Bell Run this morning and then went to lunch with my mom, sister and aunt. After that, I had nothing to do. It was so weird.. I was so perplexed.

When I got home, I had the urge to paint. And old Frankie boy has been sketched out on my canvas for months now. So, in hopes of having him ready for Final Friday, and not to mention that I need some new artwork for me (most of the artwork I do is commission work and therefore, I don't get to keep the originals), I decided to just suck it up, and get painting.

Here's my progress so far:

Obviously his face isn't done yet, but I got a pretty good start on it today. I'll keep you updated on the progress!

Sweet Satisfaction

2 portraits.. done! Here they are!

The Gordon House

The Groves House

Yay me! I'm still waiting on confirmation from my contact for the Groves house so they can be sent to the printers. They are being made into Christmas cards.

I feel a great sense of accomplishment!
