2012 So far...

• I'm still trying to organize my studio...and my brain.

• 11 days into this year and I only had made a whole new drawing.

• I'm working in some commissions work and I cant share any of those images with you :(

• I feel I have to do something challenging (like a daily weekly drawing) to have a good reason to blog more often.

• My brother's wedding is in April and I'm working with him in the invitations. Makes me nervous to do work for my own family. I feel the pressure to do and amazing perfect work.

• So far, this year have been super pack of great news and opportunities, maybe for that reason I still trying to organize my brain and find the way to be a lot more productive.

• My 39th birthday is this Saturday January 14. I never have been crazy about making parties and big celebrations. I told Mr. Harper I just want to visit some friends in an Art Festival, have an Italian dinner and watch the Broncos- Patriots football game. Maybe I will eat a whole chocolate cake and I'll call it a perfect Birthday day.

• This Sunday will be my 9 year anniversary in the US. How is possible I have been here 9 years already?

• I'm going to participate in a big Art Festival at the end of February and possible in other festival the first weekend of March. I should be painting 24/7 for those shows... and still I'm working on organize my brain. Good Job girl.

• I made a big batch of homemade granola. I think I left it a little bit to much on the oven. Mr. Harper told me the granola taste like burned popcorn. Ops!

• Every morning, I drink a shake made with fruits, yogurt, juice and burned popcorn granola.

• I'm trying to go back to my routine and walk in the treadmill at least 45 minutes every day. I was doing pretty well until the Holidays came and mess up with my schedule (lame excuse, right?). To me, the worst part about not working out in really long time is dealing the the guy in the reception in the gym. I feel he look at me and think: "look who finally decide to come back here". Why I have to care so much about what other people think?

• I have been buying canvases like crazy. I think I expecting the inspiration comes inside one of those plastics wraps too...

• Last night, while we're watching the New Hampshire Republican Primary (don't judge me), I cut a lot of fabric to make tea towels.

• I'm stocking my studio with a bunch of goodies to have new things to offer on the South Miami Art Festival this February.

• I'm not big in celebrating my birthday but I'm planning to make this year the best of the 30's

• FeDex just came with a big box for my husband. I recognized the logo in the box. I'm going to get an AWESOME birthday present!. I cant wait to show you want Mr. Harper got me. Love that guy.

• I think my word for 2012 is going to be Grow.

Happy Wednesday!

Love your work! What kind of paper are you using in the top couple pics of this post? Do you use the Rapidosketch on the canvases too? I just got some and not sure what to use them with for best results :o)
