I try not to worry when I’m not as regular as I ought to be with my blog so I’ll jump right back in here with the follow up to the summer post below this. The dragons in the picture got finished up – months later, oops – and I’m doing the last minute preparations for the last and largest of my fall shows.
In the months between now and my last post we’ve done a lot and a little. My family decided we were ready for a kitten (or two!). My daughter began her first year of university. We kept on with the rounds of shop improvements to our building.
I’ve been pretty good about taking pictures of my work and cats and posting to Instagram so I popped a widget for that on the side over there to take a peek at.
Almost all the work being done at work right now has more to do with the building I work in. The last few weeks have been spent cleaning and painting which is pretty much a never ending task in a 50 year old building that got used for mechanical and industrial work. Layers of lighter coloured paint, removing random fixtures and streamlining the remaining ones means the studio and store front will eventually have an industrial chic but for now it’s a seemingly unending round of painting.
That said, I snuck a few more dragons in this week and they’re sweet. They’re more subtle and dragony than the last go round which was unintended. I’ll get the heads and wings back to the more caricature ones of last round but I did like the subtle colouring.
They met with good reception by the folks who came through the shop today and orders for them and their friends are beginning to trickle in.
