Slow and learning



Nearly finished...this'll be the last scan, tomorrow, finish and photograph I think...

It's also bugging me...they all do at this stage, never as good as I'd hoped for!

I can see the improvements I'm making but am frustrated to feel I've yet to master the art well enough to advertise for work...not sure if I'm being reasonable about that though.

Considering offering to work for minimum wage to get the practice and some money coming in while I improve...not sure about that either though. It generally takes me about ten hours for a portrait still so they'd work out between fifty and sixty quid.

I did spontaneously daydream this morning that I'd be good enough and have enough work to do a small show by September...and hopefully one piece somewhere in the Brighton Festival this year in May...We'll see.

The Goddess E-course and the TAW and life are ridiculously in tune with each other at the moment...Oooh I'll post my crazy week one pic too.


Big Love

What I see is a wonderfully talented artist that I envision being bold and trusting in her talents. But hey... thats just me :)

I'd love to hear more about the Goddess E-course. And in what ways it is in tune with TAW. I'm participating in jennlui's "Goddess Journey Circle" starting in March. I can't wait.

peace&magic to you SisterJulia

And thanks for the artist pen suggestions. I ordered four ABT dual tips and a blender pen. I really appreciated your help and can't wait to play when they arrive.

Ah, such a beautful portrait! I love the eyes!

And I adore all the colour and use of textures in your other pictures. So so lovely, all of them.
