I know I've disappeared for awhile. Even my other blog where I showcased my paintings more than my tips has suffered. Life can always be a bit crazy with work, kids, dog, and school but mine really started to unravel a few years ago. The emotional strain took a huge toll. I tried to hold it together as best as I could but a few months ago I was forced to make some changes. I had to walk (run!) away and leave everything but my kids behind.
I am now living back in Victoria with my son and starting over again. I say again because I have been here many, many times. Perhaps this fact has helped me to realize what is really important.
The good news is that I hope to now be able to concentrate more on doing what I love. Painting and teaching. I have faith that it will all work out and I won't have to get a desk job somewhere.
I am now also a representative of Indigo Artpapers. Indigo has some beautiful handmade watercolor paper which I just love! The are fairly new and are located in Canada, made in India.
I am also trying to set up online classes and consultations. If you are interested, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. A tab will all the information will be located at the top of this blog very soon.
But the really great news is that Watercolor Weapons has been picked up by a publisher (North Light Books) and I am getting it all written and organized to be published. Yay!! The release date is January 2017.Sounds like the title will be changed but all the good stuff will still be there. I will keep you posted about more of that.
Now it is off to work I go. Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho
