for the new year...

As I'd said before, I want to paint more... and when I say paint I don't mean do work for my books, I mean other stuff. Non-related stuff.

So that is what I've come up with--an all new page.

I painted the candy, dice, and thumbtack tonight, after I got off of work.

Do I have other things I need to do? Yes. Do I want to do those other things? No.

Perhaps at some point I'll sell some of the little object studies. Ebay anyone?

Gorgeous! I would imagine that, just as with writing, you have to give yourself time for your just-for-you art, no matter how many projects are under deadline. Otherwise your spark/enthusiasm will die. That's my experience, anyway. Good for you! Thanks for sharing.

You are SO right! And that's what's happened--my spark/enthusiasm has died. I'm trying to get it back.

They're so great Meghan! That is one of my goals for the year too- to do some fun art just for me... its a good reminder of why I wanted to make books in the first place.
