This site is about my life in the art studio. It includes drawings, paintings, knitting and cross stitch and fun art techniques. I will also include recipes and yoga and book reviews. This is a lifestyle blog with intentional and simple living ideas.
The other day I was digging through some of my sketches and come along these drawings I started a few years ago.
Let me explain myself: I work as a mental health counselor and art therapist. Life gets extremely busy for me. Especially with the pandemic, the need is greater than ever. I work at a small private practice, so I get paid only if clients come in for their session. I have really great clients who respect my time and their session.
So with that said, my free time to draw and actually finish my ideas, which I have probably have too much for one lifetime, is minimal.
So here I was trying to figure out where to go with my art. I have not opened my store, that that’s on my list. Right now I just want to finish projects and drawings that have been sitting in a file for too long.
I have been stitching Derby since June 2019. It’s amazing to look back at the progress each month. I found this picture of Derby a year ago (photo below). It goes to show no matter the project how big or long it will take working on it consistently pays off. I never thought I would stitch a cross stitch this large. I don’t think when I started this hobby I knew cross stitching can come in this large of a project.
Here is where Derby ended last night before I decided to go to bed. I’m not much for staying up to see the ball drop for the new year. Never been a thing I liked to do. I rather sleep!
Best wishes of hopes and dreams for everyone this year 2021!
