New drawing

I started my new drawing. I almost went ahead and did this in charcoal, but I think I may start a second drawing in charcoal of something else, or just do my next drawing in charcoal. For some reason i just really want to work in charcoal.
Also with this drawing I'm trying something a bit different than how I started my last one. I'm more working off how I started "Polynesian Slumber." I was really happy with how that worked out, I really liked the texture I ended up with.

New Etsy Listing

I added a new listing to my Etsy shop. This time I'm just working on listing some prints. I'm going to space out my listings over the next few days. I have a much better grasp on how to put up listings and how shipping will work, so I'm hoping this experience will go much better.
Also if anyone would like a print of a specific piece, either in 8" x 10" or some other size then let me know. I can create a listing just for your request, or if you just have a suggestion on my next print to list please let me know.

Thinking about new work

I had to take a little break after my last drawing due to vacation. But now that I'm back I have to start thinking about my next piece. I really like the one reference photo that I took of the fish charm that I used in my last drawing. Though I'm not so sure about straying from my series that I'm working on. I did take a few reference photo for the series, so I should probably just work with that that. I still have a bunch of great photos of my daughter that I want to work with. I'm hoping to maybe pick up a bit of a faster pace in working and be able to get more done and get more ideas out. I was hoping to start my commission after I got back from vacation but I still have no reference photo.
I've also been looking at Etsy again. I really like that site. I'm just not sure if my work would sell any better on there than it does now (using this blog and website). I had an account once before but I had no sales. I'd definitely try Etsy again if do follow my idea of trying out a few crafts. I'm also thinking of maybe playing with my logo a bit, but I'm not sure if any of my ideas will work out for me. I will post the new logo ideas, as soon as I finish them up, whether I choose to use them or not.

"Swimming in Emotion"

I finished this today, just in time for vacation too. When I get back I'll either have the reference photo for my commission or I'll start on something else in this series. For the next one I'll either continue with the general jewelry theme or I'll do another drawing with the fish charm. I think that is the best part of this drawing, and I have another reference photo with it.

Progress on "Swiming in Emotion"

I spent a bit of time working on this. Right now though it's so hot in here I'm finding it hard to focus. I'm happy with my progress I feel like I'm heading int he right direction. A few things need to changed but overall it's getting better.
