I need to draw but I got company coming, so I have to clean some time. I just have to get it all done today so I can draw ALL day tomorrow to try to finish this pen and ink gift before Christma
Yes, I did it. I got all the commissions done on time. I'm proud of myself. I got home after the delivery and I had an email for another commission piece. I had to say no. I just don't have time now. But I will be doing it for a birthday later in the year. I also went to the Quinlan to see the show, and it looks soooo good. I'm very proud. Well, I need to get busy on that drawing I'm doing as a gift. It's small so I think I can get it done. I hope so. Have a happy holiday everyone.
I put the finishing touches on the commission piece and handcolored one of my photographs. I few people came by the Tannery and it was fun talking with them. I picked up the framed pen and ink for the "Reflections Show" and it looks Grea A Great Day.

The Quinlan is great, it is just beautiful. I've been out of town for a few days, but I did work on the other pen and ink commission. It's about half way done. David had to deliver the other commission for me since I was gone. After this one I still want to do one for a gift for
Yes, I should finish tomorrow. Then I will start on the next commission, another Pen and Ink!
I sat down at the studio and started working and didn’t get up until 5 hours later. I plan to be back in the studio early tomorrow, go to a crit around noon, and back to the studio. I’m about a third of the way done on the inking. So I hope I can finish Thursday and deliver it on Friday. I think it’s looking good so far.
I can’t post a photo because it’s a gift for Christmas. But I’ll post it after the holidays.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
