I was asked today if I could have one of my paintings on a book cover. That is exciting! I can’t give all the details at the moment until it is about to be published.
Speaking of being published. I am supposed to be working on some obscure animal illustrations for a whimsical collection of poetry – which I have not even begun to think about. Perhaps, since I am ahead financially and have more free time that I can finally donate the time to this and finally knock out the project. I would rather do that than clean out the garage – really clean anything for that matter. It took me 45 minutes and a backache to clean all my brushes properly the other day. I have a low utility sink in my studio and I avoid cleaning much of anything unless I want at trip to the chiropractor afterward. So I just purchase cheap brushes and leave them in water all the time.
Anyway. That was a tangent.
