Open Studio

The creative process can be so solitary that when I show my work a nervous excitement overcomes me. That was me this weekend at the beginning of my Open Studio weekend. The conversations as well as the feedback I received was appreciated and a much needed change from my daily routine. I am truly grateful that after this past weekend I was able to donated a percentage of my sales to HDSA Research.

The next two weeks I have two major projects that I am working on. I have started the site merge and although I am behind my soft deadline the end result will be worth it. The SF General Hospital, Hearts and Hero project is almost completed. I can see the completed project and have started making the final touch ups before the protective coating gets put on. After this project has been completed and picked up by the shipping company. I plan on getting back into the routine of attending live figure drawing workshops.

A quote that has been coming up a lot at the most random times is one that may or may not be factual but I like the jist of it. When they asked Michelangelo how he made his statue of David he is reported to have said, “It is easy. You just chip away the stone that doesn’t look like David.” -Michelangelo.
