Big update about what I've been up to.

I know I'm the world's worst blog writer when it comes to updating often enough. I keep saying I'll change but so far it hasn't happened.

So lots of things have been going on for me in the past few months. The big one from a personal standpoint is that my mom was diagnosed with cancer, she's finished her treatment now and she's feeling better every day, the outlook for her is excellent according to her doctors. So that has been a big stress for me recently and is part of my lack of updates to both my blog and my website which is why I never added work from February until this month.

On a more professional and happy note, there has been a lot going on for me and my art. First of all I took life drawing class and the results you can view here, it was a great experience if you are an artist and have never taken life drawing I really recommend it.

Second, I've gotten a summer job at a local studio. I'll be cutting mats, framing, and keeping track of print sales. It's only part time but the experience I'll get seeing how professional artists run a business will be very valuable for me I think.

Finally third and biggest in my mind, I'm going to be doing my very first art show on July 1st. I'm really excited about the chance to sell some of my work, I'll have both drawings and sculpture there. If you are in the Bethel, Maine area that day please stop by the "Shy, Novice, and Closeted Art Show", it's the same day as an art show for more established artists as well so you'll have plenty to see.
