So It's been almost a year again.

I spent a year doing an intensive internship in a 1st grade class and taking classes full time. It was wonderful.

However, I haven't been able to work on my art hardly at all.

I feel like my technique has suffered and I need to get back into the swing of things.

I AM IN MY FIRST ART SHOW! I am super excited about this. A local gallery is having a "Portraits" show, so three of my pieces are in it. I made some cheap prints in a hurry, but I don't think they will sell. None the less, it's still exciting and I left some business cards. With any luck maybe I can get some commissions! Of course, that would require that I figure out pricing first -_-

Well, that's what been happening. I still work seasonally at Disney. I'm looking for a teaching job. Hopefully I will find some time this summer to crank out some more portraits :)
