Happy St.. Patty's Day! Spring Break!

I know its been a long while since I have blogged.
Happy St. Patty's Day!
I know my music playlist will grind on a few of you.
It will only last a day or two. Then new changes. I promise.
Where have I been? Flying low. Taking some time to put things in order for the bigger picture. Thinking on new goals.
Design jobs and school have ate my time.
Any spare time that I have, has been used putting things into motion for future classes,vendor shows, and new ideas.
I fell behind on things two months ago.
Got swamped.
Finally able to crawl out.
I get obsessed with things.
I have blinders on at times.
Hence no blog.
I get obsessed with some things and just can't seem to break away from certain projects until they are fully done.
Anyone know what I mean?
Last few months needed to take certain art projects and mediums in new directions. Always a thrill- but can have a little trial and error. Anyone ever have those days in the studio? I know you do!
Those days where all you want to do is create a new masterpiece- but you spend all day on new techniques.
Trying new things.
Some things work.
A few may not.
Those ideas that drive you out of bed at 2:00am.
That's been my schedule.
Late nights. Early mornings.
New ideas drive me out of bed and into the studio.
Lots of new things to talk and share with.
New blog items, collage sheets, classes, and ideas to share. Coming soon.
Trying to get all my teaching dates on the calendar for the Spring and early summer. Things will kick off next week. Talk with you all soon.
I need to go put my green on.
Then out the door!
Happy St. Patty's Day!
