Hello my lovelies! Once again I vanished a bit over the past month with only a few posts of some dream catchers I made and a logo design I did for Panera. Rest assured, I have been working on some original artwork, but I am trying very hard to slow myself down and take my time on these because they will be displayed in an actual art gallery in July. Yes, I will finally have my work up on some walls in nice frames where people can see it among similar artwork.... The 'Other World's' Gallery owner, a phenomenal master pastel artist by the name of Dave Francis, took a look at my portfolio and he liked my work enough to give me this incredible opportunity. One of the pieces he wants to display is my pencil bust drawing of my naga character Avinash, and the other two are a fairy I've been working on and my faun shaman. I'm so thrilled! I've also had the opportunity to teach a class on how to make dream catchers at this studio called the Creative Chameleon and they want me to go back there February 22nd from 12-5 since it was a huge success the first time around. If any of you are up in the Glens Falls area of upstate, NY, feel free to come to the Shirt Factory and check out the Creative Chameleon! I definitely feel like I've made huge leaps in getting myself out there and stepping away from the computer. I've tried to promote my work online for so many years with no real results, so I think promoting what I do in the real world is a good step for me.
Here's a few little pics of me teaching from my last workshop. It was a blast, I met some awesome people and made a little money to boot.
These are the two pieces I am slowly working on, trying to push myself to the very limits of my ability with digital painting. I know I am capable of high quality digital painting, even if I feel a lack of confidence in myself. I have to break through my own anxieties and just get into the creative flow zone. Sometimes I get frustrated and I always have this nagging feeling that I don't really know what I am doing, but I have plenty of intuition from years of working in this medium, so I know I will succeed at this. My biggest problem is procrastination and getting started, making time to work on art and give it my complete focus, shutting off all distractions. This is the main reason I haven't posted any art in such a long time, I have huge gaps where I don't get anything done and all it does is plague me to no end. I'm full of excuses... the apartment is messy and needs cleaning, I'm tired from work at Panera, I have a million things to do... Well, all of that is fine and dandy, but all I really end up doing on my days off is laying around watching Netflix and being entirely unproductive. I'm trying to set up a schedule for myself now to work on art for at least one hour everyday, but so far I haven't had the discipline to follow it. It's rough, but I must break through this procrastination if I ever want to make it as an artist. Anywho, that's the update for now. Thank you guys for sticking with me through all my ups and downs, and also thank you to all you new folks that recently devwatched me. It means a lot to know people enjoy my artwork!
