Where have I been? In my studio painting away! I want to show you all the art I've been working on for my new book, "Give Thanks", but since I can't, I thought I could at least give you a sneak preview of a portion of page 47...
I have to say I feel a bit more flaky than fragrant though! I had such grand aspirations of blogging in 2009 on a more consistent basis and I had a wonderful list of things I wanted to share with you... including my studio transformation... and then came the phone call. "The deadline has been moved up," she said. In one short conversation I discovered that I would have two less weeks to complete all the art and more design responsibility then I had expected. Well... so much for more blogging... and time to spend on my studio transformation!
But... TRUST ME... I am not complaining! I am THANKFUL! God already knew it was going to happen before I even said yes to the book and my times are in His hands. I am confident He will give me everything I need... faith, creativity, strength, endurance and a heart to praise Him throughout the next few weeks! And I'm so excited to share with you everything in the book, both in story and art, I can hardly wait! And I can hardly contain myself wanting to show you what I had already done in my studio before that phone call... including some fun tutorials. So don't give up on me too soon... there will be more to come!
let your face shine on your servant;
save me in your unfailing love.
But even now, after putting in some very long hours and therefore feeling a bit more confident about meeting the deadline... I think I'll be able to visit a bit more often. Now don't hold your breath but I do promise to be back!!
Love you guys!
