Back to working on things after a long break
I'm happy to say that after a long (but perhaps well-deserved?) break from art, I finally feel like I'm back on track. I have this week off from teaching, and after some wonderfully relaxing days with family and snow, I'm excited to spend the remainder of this week focusing on art.
Here's what I've been up to:
-working on FINALLY finishing my embroidery map of Manhattan...and then perhaps moving on to other cities, if it works out
-making my pieces bigger. In November for my 50 map challenge, I worked small, because it was more convenient and made my goal more feasible. But I have some lovely large watercolor paper waiting for me!
-using wood blocks more and experimenting with acrylic paint
-working up a plan for the submission of maps to magazines who might want them as illustration to be a companion to travel articles (any help or suggestions here?)
I hope everyone had a great holiday, was safe through the blizzard, and is planning a wonderful new year!
