This update is long over due.

Hello! Hello!

Sorry I’m late. Sometimes, quite often actually, I get so caught up in life that I forget to update this journal.

What’s New? Well, my book project is stalled for now. I have too many irons in the fire and I need to re-focus. I’m still determined to finish it.  I have been doing more paintings on my iPod. I recently bought the Sensa artist brush and stylus. It makes painting on the iPod seem more “real”

I have updated my Etsy shop with new jewelry items.

Little Pillows for your soul

Hello Hello,

It is very late and I need to go to bed, but I don’t necessarily feel tired. I’m trying to steer more people to my shop and get my artwork and jewelry sold. The porcelain pieces are coming along nicely. I still need to handpaint them. I’m going to introduce rings into the shop within the coming weeks. They are going to be very boho and very cute.

I need to get back to painting though. I often ask myself,” Will I ever animate again?” and “Will I expand on my marionette story??”  I just keep plugging away hoping that something will catch the eye or start a trend. It is rough staying positive throughout the growth and hardwork, but I know that payoff and recognition is JUST around the corner.

The beautiful butterfly goes through a long but peaceful transformation but the Phoenix must set itself a blaze before it can rise again renewed.  Which am I?

Until next time,

xoxo

Porcelain

Hello my friends!

I hope you are well.

I’m still working on my memoir about living and working in Japan. I’m very excited about this project.

I’ve been working on more jewelry. I spent the afternoon shaping porcelain medallions for hand-painting designs on. I have some simple pendants I will put on chains tonight for placement in my shop by tomorrow afternoon. I’m need to decide if I want to put more earrings into my shop. When I think about jewelry, earrings just don’t come into my  mind. I definitely need to do more earrings.

Business wise, I’m still waiting for business to pick up. The market is tough. But I know I make quality interesting things that come from the heart. I am willing to put myself out there. Each painting is piece of myself.  I’m also building some collage pieces. I may test some small collages out in my shop.

Until next time…
