Feathers, feathers, everywhere

Hello!
How have you been? I’m still painting, but struggling to find time for writing. During the summer school holidays I mostly did quick sketches in my various sketchbooks. There is a story behind each sketch, but sadly no time to share them here. As the holidays came to the end, I got back to painting small standalone pieces in the attempt to regain some focus and to get used to the new daily routine.

My son is in childcare for 15 hours/week this year and I have great plans for learning, experimenting with new techniques and finally getting down on paper some of the paintings that were hunting my mind for months, sometimes years.

As well as painting, I am spending a lot of time in front of the computer. Almost two years ago, when a friend wanted to buy some of my paintings, I opened an Etsy shop. It stood neglected all that time, but now I’m working on putting some small paintings, greeting cards and eventually prints into it.

I also created a Facebook page for my art. I’m not sure if I’m spreading myself too thin or stepping out into an exciting wider world.
Are you working on anything in particularly at the moment? Do you have any goals or dreams for this year?

      Thank you. I’m trying to do the first layer wet-into-wet and spend less time fiddling with the paintings afterwards in the subsequent layers.
