Wordless (almost) Wednesday

Hi everyone! I have been MIA lately. I apologize for that. The last part of the semester always sucks up some major time.

I have been working on a commission and can't wait to share.! :)

As I get closer to graduation, I've been thinking about the level of commitment I have to my art. It's something I think about all the time. My art, I mean. During my business classes, I think of how it can apply to an artist/entrepreneur. How do I want to use this for my art career? Who goes to business school to be an artist? Well... me. I think it was a good decision. I will be looking forward to taking some art classes though.

Anyway...that's what is on my mind these days. What's on yours?

Short Update

Well, the bar has been pretty low-key and boring lately. Maybe someone found out that I was writing about them and everyone is on their best behavior. It is Friday night though, so things could get a little interesting.

I've been working on a series of small paintings that I plan to turn into my first line of prints. It seems like prints do really well on etsy and I like selling on etsy.

I donated a painting from 2005 to a silent auction and it sold. It's kind of funny how you never know which painting is going to sell. They don't sell in the order that you paint them. What seems like old work to me is new work to someone else.

I hope everyone has a great Friday night!

My bar guests never cease to entertain or amaze me. The first bar guest I served last night asked me to conjugate a verb. What?!? I haven't done that since junior high or high school and never considered it something fun to try at the bar. Whatever. That's when I knew it would be a weird night. At least as long as he was there, anyway.

In case you have forgotten how to conjugate verbs, I have included a helpful example...

The conversation moved from conjugating verbs to politics. Not the best when you are dealing with someone who has been drinking and is making themselves angrier by the minute. I think he might have asked me to take Hilary Clinton out but I refused. I'm a good bartender but some things I cannot do. Sorry, sir.

I have to admit that people get on my nerves a bit but it's so much easier to deal with them when I can laugh at them. It's easier when I am laughing at the other bartender dealing with a guest.

For example, last night, this woman told the other bartender that he looked like Snoop Dogg. Ummm...not so much. Another bartender has been told that he looks like an Egyptian hieroglyphic. What does that even mean?

Its back to the bar for me tonight...we'll see what interesting stories I have to share. ;) Hope everyone is visiting thier fave bartender tonight!

WIP: My Studio

I have decided to let you into the amazing world that is my studio. Well, today it is the amazing kitchen table but the light is nice and it's cleaner than my real studio. I am working on a couple of small pieces and I like to go back and forth between the two.

Hope you enjoy a glimpse into my process!
