Getting back into the swing.

It has been a long time since I have updated this blog. Whats been happening? Well, lots of stuff. I have to go back a bit though.

I finished my last large painting "Falcon Allegro" on Nov 5th, the same day my Grandmother passed away. Today (Mar 8th) one of my goldfish died, and I guess im feeling a bit nostalgic, which is why I decided it was time to get back to blogging.

I will be going a bit backwards as I post new artworks and the like, since I like those to be chonological, so while this post will be at the top of the list, there will be a lot of new artwork poping up with earlier dates tagged to them (even though they have never been shown on this blog before). Confused yet? Its ok, its happens to me all the time.

So, last November I was wrapped up in family life, and Christmas, and all that jazz. I decided to take a little break from my art to re-energize. Those words were no sooner spoken to myself, when I "vollunteered" to create an exhibit to be on display in January. I spent the better part of December creating 10 new paintings all inspired by my Pop Jellies.

After I was done, I was totally ready for that break, and I haven't painted with my acrylics at all so far this year. Instead I have been having fun with my ATC hobby, and doing a lot of trading and collecting of little miniatures.

I dont know what the rest of the year is going to bring, but I have dusted off my paint and canvas, and I have started a new "Bird" painting. I have a large 36x60 canvas with Cedar Waxwings on the go, and plans for two 40x40 canvas's jumping off from this ... http://tempeststudios.blogspot.com/2010/04/3.html.

Keep your eyes peeled for more posts featuring ALL the art cards I have drawn over the last 4 months, and some deep sea creature paintings which were featured in my Jan Exhibit "Of Patterns and Sea Creatures".

Edit: Posted some photos. :)
