There are two more mini eCourses available on Etsy. The first is titled 'Tips & Tools' where I share information such as stretching and wiring canvases and also touch on writing a Curriculum Vitae and Artist's Statement. The second is 'Setting Up a Studio' which has always been important to me as I have found that if I don't have a designated space to paint, I often don't paint at all. Both can be viewed here.
I'm slowly preparing for my next 52 WEEKS project to begin in 2020. I have struggled with whether or not I wanted to do this again for another year and, if so, what exactly I wanted to be my focus. After the Heroes and then the Nasty Women projects, I have been wanting to challenge myself again. Both of those projects were deeply meaningful for me, not that the others weren't, but just not at the same level as those two. The panels are prepared and I have thought about this particular idea for several years, I just want to clarify it in my mind. Which in my case means a lot of journalling, actually. Fingers crossed that a solution will come to me soon.
For my final GIVEAWAY I thought I would share a copy of the 52 WEEKS::Heroes portrait painting mini workshop. To see more information, please visit my ETSY shop here.
The draw and the final Giveaway will be shared in the next eNewsletter.
The winner of a copy of my book HEROES: 52 Paintings over 52 Weeks is...

Throughout the years I have been incorporating spray paint into my work I always struggled with the environmental impact that spray paint cans had. Not only that, the nozzles also tended to clog easily in spite of extra care and they often required replacing which meant they went in the trash since that plastic couldn't be recycled.
As an advocate for the environment for as long as I can remember, this really bothered me. At the same time I absolutely love the process of creating patterns using stencils and spray paint.
For Christmas my husband gave me an Iwata airbrush and I absolutely love it. The results are a little different with a finer mist which I was a little concerned about as I adore the grittiness of street art and the drips and flaws that come with it...but I absolutely love the airbrush.
It's much lighter & smaller which works really well in my hands and is very easy to clean and maintain. I definitely recommend it.
