Hello…

Pardon the radio silence, again. There’d been a lot of major changes in my life these past few months.

My divorce went final in April, I switched employers thrice, I was approved to rent a studio/ gallery space at the 2110 Gallery in downtown Sacramento, I was laid off on Halloween, the gallery will have new management by December 1st. Whew!

I found my creative voice again after months of not having time or the place to work on my art again. Having a creative space has helped a lot. I feel like I’ve made more progress since Halloween because I have more time in the studio. Meanwhile I want to share the photos of my dolls in their gallery setting…

Ravena & Billy
To the left is Ravena, a character in the developing story arch from THE TREES OF KNOWING. To the right is Billy Boyd, the first in my Urban Faery series.

Here’s Ravena with her lights on…
Here she is with the red lights behind her.

The Trees of Knowing gang
Here’s the Trees of Knowing gang, a little worse for wear.

I’m currently working on another urban faery and a shrine that’s part of the Trees of Knowing story. The story has started to come together 3 nights ago. I had some sketches of paintings that started as a visual record of dreams I had. They turned out to be part of the story.

Working at frantic pace to make the colored studies for the story and at finding a new job and another place to live.

I also managed to finish these ancestor mice for my niece. A very belated birthday and early christmas present.

Do pray for me. I could really use it. My spirits are high but I’m still twitching in winds of uncertainty.

Happiness!

2012 in summary…

It has been a challenging year for me.  I’ve been tired and achy for months before I was finally diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in August.  Finding the right meds was another matter.  Despite all that, I managed to made a few things.  Here’s a visual summary of that so it was still a good year.

Happy New Year!
