Hi Dear Readers, Wow, life has been busy for me. What about you? Do you just get overwhelmed with family stuff during the holidays, too? Thankfully I have still been able to work on my art during this time, but its mostly been digital stuff at my other blog Drawings and Illustrations. I have been throwing my digital art up on that site, because I really felt that my digital art didn’t really belong on this site. But I have decided that it does. This is a part of me, this is my brand and I play with digital stuff, too. I will be honest and tell you that part of the reason it’s on that site is that my digital art is not yet where I want it to be. BUT I also decided that that doesn’t matter. Sometimes its a good thing to have your community alongside you as you try to learn something different. So, yes, it isn’t what I’d like it to be, but its getting there. Most importantly though, I am loving working digitally and I am having a blast! (It is a lot easier for me at this time with a small kiddo to not have the full blown paint mess to clean up, etc…)I have also finished those commissions (more soon) that I was working on that had also been taking up my traditional painting time … in other words, I am planning to move forward with both painting styles still, and I will hopefully have time for it again at least until Christmas! p.s. please let me know what you think about my decision? Is it ok to have traditional craft/painting, digital illlustration and childrens art all in one place? I mean it is all very much me and my passion and I’d love for it to all be in one spot. Is it too much though?

This weeks Illustration Friday prompt was “Secret,” and below is my response. Best friends keep no secrets between themselves. I know its not exactly a creative take on the word itself, but I was enjoying getting to know my new PS software.
I decided to do this week’s Illustration Friday prompt – Kernel – digitally, as I haven’t done digital art in a while. However, I realize that I am just in a traditional art kind of mood, because I think I like my sketch of this better. I still think she’s pretty cute. Poor doggy. I can’t wait to pop into Illustration Friday website to see other people’s take on this weeks prompting. It always fascinates me how one word can have so many different associations!
