I'm Working on a series loosely titled "Aspects of the Feminine."
I have defined 5 aspects that I want to convey.
I've done dozens of sketches but I'm not satisfied yet. I'd like to have this wrapped up this week so I can submit the series for a new gallery opening. Pictured are a few of the pieces I'm considering. Not too sure If I want all 5 to be Doni style goddesses. It was not my original intention but these are ones that are speaking to me. Thoughts?

What a great time we had this weekend at the Spring Fling Art fair. Met lots of new people a few old acquaintances as well. Learned a few things and got some great ideas for future events. Mostly I was just pleased to get some exposure for my art and I was so touched by the responses I saw on so many faces. Sales were a nice bonus. Looking forward to outdoor events this summer with Westside Flea.

Finished this girl today. She is part of a 5 piece series I'm doing on women. I'm working on the second piece and am pondering what are the aspects of womanhood that I want to highlight. What subject matter would you consider important to include?

Lee and I have been busy getting Prints and cards ready for Sunday's Spring Fling Art and craft fair. I have also designed a new business card with my illustrations on the back. I'm so in love with this Epson fine art printer, I can barely tell the prints from the originals. Of course Lee's years of expertise in the photo industry may have something to do with it as well. In all seriousness I simply could not do this without him.
If you are in the area on Sunday, come out and take a look at what we have been creating.

Going through one of my old sketchbooks I decided to rework a couple of images. Here is one I have started on Bristol. I'm excited to see how she will look in color as my original sketch is just a black and white. I love the process of watching a new piece come to life.

The day after Easter seemed like the perfect time to resume my long neglected exercise and yoga practice. Whew! I'm exhausted. Determined to get in better shape for hiking and camping season!

Bam Art Studios' website is up and running, with only a few minor glitches. I'm learning as I go here and I will have a black and white gallery, as well as current work, uploaded to the site in the coming weeks. Lee and I have been busy getting my first ever Coloring Book ready for print. This has been a big undertaking for us and we are learning so much as we go. I had originally planned to have it to press mid-March which was optimistic considering our work load. It is getting close and hopefully will be available by April 10th.
Our first printing of greeting cards is ready for the upcoming Spring Fling Art and craft show at the Strongsville Holiday Inn on April 10th from 10am to 5pm. I'm getting pretty excited to get some of my original art work on display and mingle with art enthusiasts at the show. I feel like my art has progressed over the last year, and I can't wait to see where my drawing every day journey will take me in the months ahead.
