Reappearing [and Painting Challenge, Part 1]

Hmm, so much for posting regularly! I have been sharing some on the insidious Facebook, but that is really not ideal. There are plans in the works, some of which were unplanned--I did not plan to start hunting for a house again, for example. I'm starting to get my feet back under me, and hope to get better at balancing things.

In the meantime, here are some photos of bits & pieces of things that I've made this year. One of advantage of blogging regularly (I tell myself) is that it gives me a record of accomplishment better than digital photos tucked away in virtual folders.

My most recent project is a challenge to paint 30 faces in 30 days, an idea I got from Galia Alena. Days 1-4 are below.

A taste of what has been going on--more appealing than packing boxes, yes? I'm not as close to having a regular creative practice as I'd like, but despite everything, I do feel like I'm starting to make progress. If I can nurture it through the next six months or so, I hope to be able to root it firmly once the housing situation is under control.
