The "Go-ahead"

The “Go-ahead” is what I refer to as the “Ok to start painting” part of project… this makes me both excited and nervous.  I managed to paint the first page of a book I am working on and have here a portion of the painting.  So far, this has promised to be one of my most loved book projects.  I think this girl is someone I am happy to help create.  She is truly lovable… which I keep writing and cannot give more details!

;-/  Some day soon!

Anyway, I am tired… but I am waiting up a bit longer in case my client from overseas wants to give me a call for some quick feedback!  Again, glad for the coming weekend… it means I can spend all my attention on the paintings!! Although Saturday is the Art Supply Warehouse Christmas Party… so maybe I will have to make some time for that event!

Some day I hope to have more time to do art… to do this full time instead.  There are so many things that could be said about having to work a day job… while your love lies in wait… and you struggle with the “day to day” vs. moments of complete sadness/panic that you’ll never truly see your dreams come true.  Jeez, that was a downer.

Ok, on a positive note, love the work, glad for it, and enjoying!!
