This is my new studio area. My husband added a room (his man cave) in the basement and moved all his things down there which left me this sunny room. He put up some shelves for me and I'm getting settled. I'm getting really serious now...
I got my new videos from Peggi Kroll Roberts. After I watch them, I plan on doing the lessons. This lesson was From Value to Color. Getting those values correct is difficult for me and this exercise really helps. These pictures are some that I took of my little granddaughter Annabelle. We got her all dressed up in her Sunday dress and went out on this beautiful sunny day. I had her pose beside her playhouse above and on her swingset. She's a natural! I have some other adorable shots that I plan on doing. I guess I'll call it the Annabelle series.

My reflections lately: I've been perusing what I've done so far and stressing out on what I want to spend more time on. I feel an urgency to figure out my style, my idea, what I want to devote more time to. But when I think I'm there, I realize I'm not. It's a matter of READINESS. Gee, this sounds just like what I would tell the parents of my kindergartners/first graders when they weren't reaching expectations at the same time as everyone else. I need to practice what I preach, practice and experiment painting, and lastly, READ the title of my blog every once in a while. The candle is not yet lit!
