New art!

Hi everyone - 

While I can't say its been a while since I've blogged, what I can say is is that its been a while since I've updated my blog, with some art!

Sadly, because I've been so busy moving, I haven't had much time to draw. My art supplies aren't unpacked quite yet, but when they are, I'll have a beautiful studio to put everything and work in, meaning, more art updates of course! I'm so excited to be kicking off 2011 this way. I'm happy to have a place where I can relax and just do what I love. That's really special to me. 

Now, I know I only have 2 pieces here, and maybe it doesn't count much if one of them is not even near being finished, but I figured, why not give you something anyway, I haven't updated you all in so long. (PS: I know in the digital painting, her left eye needs to be fixed, I would've fixed it before I posted, so it at least would look somewhat decent, but I don't have Photoshop on this computer.)

Happy 2011 everybody!

Coming To You, Live From my Dad's Laptop!

Hi everybody!

I just came to update you all, and get that slightly depressing entree out of the way. I've moved, and its not what I thought it would be...its so much better! My brother and one of his friends have been here visiting for a week, they leave tomorrow morning, so I've been pretty busy. I'm so sorry, I would've updated sooner but I just couldn't get to a computer. Speaking of computers, your probably wondering about the title...well, since I've moved my brand new computer has been having some issues, and refuses to power up. So it is in the Mac store now, as I type this, hopefully getting fixed for me to bring home today or at the latest, tomorrow afternoon. Now, onto some happier news, I did pick up my kitten a day or two after I moved in, despite being really sick with a cold, when I held her I felt so much better. She's beautiful, loving, but very naughty, I must admit, right now she's watching me type, climbing all over the keyboard! She's quite a handful as you can probably imagine. Just the other day, I was downstairs with my mom and dad, minding my own business and having some fun, when out of the corner of my eye I happened to look up and there she was, like a queen, half of her body out of the balcony, looking down over us. Now, let me explain this, our upstairs consists of only my bedroom, my parents on the opposite bedroom and the second bathroom in the middle, its only a walk down the hall from my bedroom to get to my parents'. So, the upstairs in a strip, like an E without the middle line. Our balcony is made up of carved wood, so there are spaces where the chunks of wood where taken away to make the carving, some holes both low enough and big enough for her body to fit through (she's very tiny.) So, she was halfway through one of the holes, both her front paws out on the very small edge, looking down on us. You can only imagine how scared I was! I practically sprinted up the staircase to go and grab her before she made it all the way through, luckily, I was just in time. Sadly, I can't post any pictures of my little daredevil at the moment, because all my pictures are on my computer, which like I said is being worked on. So, as soon as I get it back home, I'll be sure that the first thing I do is post an entree with pictures of her, and her story of course. The reason I bring her up now, in this entree is because she has no name, and its been almost a week since I got her. I am thinking of the name Feather, I know it sounds strange but her fur reminds me of the feathers used to stuff expensive pillows. She is so soft. Besides that, she loves playing with her feather toy. My parents love the name Spooky, because she's constantly getting spooked, even if she acts brave. She's such a character! Anyway, you DON'T have to give names in the comments here, I'd rather you post them in the entree that has the pictures of her, so you can see how she looks, and come up with better names that fit both her personality AND her appearance. I can't wait to post them so I can hear all the great names people come up with for her! I'm very curious to hear your ideas, because I just can't seem to find her perfect name. Thank you so much for reading, I'll see you soon!
