I've been on artistic hiatus as of late, as all my energy has been devoted to becoming a first time mom! My greatest creation yet is named Jack Robert, he has his own blog but since I've made little else besides him in the last few months, here's a picture of my success:
He's already two months old, and I don't want to jinx myself but I think this mothering business is coming along just fine. He's been to lots of restaurants and parties, and today he saw his first art show. I entered my piece, but it was not selected. I'm guessing because I took the semester off and they wanted to give priority to currently enrolled students at Valley. When it is returned to me, I will post a picture here for you to see. In the fall I will be taking watercolor, I will be working on some kind of tangible project - most students make greeting cards or calendars or books. As usual, I have a list of ideas for projects I would like to create in watercolor, including a deck of playing cards, a book of my baby's firsts, and I'd like to do some painting on fabric to make quilts and handbags. Besides the required painting work, I would also like to get my sewing machine dusted off because I have grandiose plans for multiple quilts, a quiet book and a few crafts just for Jack. Let's see how much of this actually happens as I will also be enrolled in two online classes and I'm already back to work in real estate - Jack has already learned how to upload a listing to the MLS because it's never too early to learn something useful!
