I got invited to a journal exchange with some amazing artists which has been so fun! I love all that I have seen so far. I hope I am worthy. I do not feel my work has the confident style that the others have. I hope to have my stuff together and post some links to them and show more images from the journals. This is one I did in my mom's journal. I love tricolored black birds. Their song is so beautiful.

I got out my paints and revamped some old altered book journal I had. These were for the Queen of Arts show that happened in November 2016 (so behind, as I said)

I found some time to get into the jewelry studio back in February and March. I did not get anything completed but got many things close. I just need to buy like 10 to 15 ft of silver chain. I really enjoy working in the studio. I miss it all the time. I had hoped to make more time to get in there (which I did for a bit) but I have fallen behind. I am not giving up though. I did finally finish a big batch of earrings that are now in the Art Hus in Solvang CA.
On a bit of a personal note: I had to end my 9 year relationship with my baby's daddy. It was the right thing to do, but a really hard and painful decision. I have not had the time or energy to keep up on my art, which is painful as well. I am an artist to the core and not doing art is like not eating. I realize that I relate to my world and environment through making art and without it I am lost. I am trying to heal and make more time for myself and my art. I am trying to move forward with my life. I did not realize how hurt and tortured I was until it all stopped and now the healing is slower than I had hoped. Bear with me as I try to rise up again and find the me that I had not realized I lost.
