Ok, so here I am, normally a very quiet, private person, trying to launch a business that puts a part of me out there to be judged. I can do this right? Other people do this. Why not me?
I thought I'd start out by sharing some thoughts and photos of my latest piece and process. Is that interesting? *shrug* You can let me know.
I'm old fashioned and use pens/pencils on paper, so here's a pic of my super high tech work as I started a new project for friends who wanted to see a beach-themed design. I had just roughed in the lettering I wanted to use at this point.
If you look closely, you'll see several initial mini-sketches that change about a thousand times before a planned piece like this is finished.
Despite my husband's love for the guy in the hammock, I couldn't make it work for the piece, so he ultimately was relegated to a lounge chair. You'll see that in the finished piece.
The little details are some of my favorite parts to add.
Here it is almost finished. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. What do you think?
