What's On My Work Desk Right Now

Hello again!  I thought you might like to see what I am working on now.  None of these images are of completed work but hopefully someday soon they will be.

I have been trying to force myself to work on a larger scale.  I have always gravitated to producing smaller scale art because it allows me to see results much sooner.  However, I often get asked if I have made or will make larger pieces for customers who want a more significant sized piece of art for their home or office or as a gift for someone else.

These images are from my larger Strathmore journal and each page is 9" X 12".  That may not seem large to you but it is to me!  I usually will have a number of pages on the go at any given time, all at various stages of development. I  like to work this way because more often than not, a page will only get so far in a sitting.  When I feel that I am not going to get any further with a given page, then I will move on to work on another. I never try to force myself to finish a page.  I have always felt that everything comes to me when it is ready to and always have faith that everything gets done when it's supposed to.  Of course, this approach means I have TONS of half-done things on the go at all times, but it also means that often when I get on a real roll, many projects all get finished at the same time too.  And that is a phenomenal feeling of accomplishment!

Anyway, at some point these pages may turn into art for sale.  Or they may remain just as journal pages.  We shall see.  I've made a few notes in the caption of each image so you can see what I am using for materials and techniques with each of these pages.

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
