New Year changes and a WIP

It 's my first post of the New Year! I've got some exciting news...
I cut my my work schedule to part time so I'll only be working 2 & 1/2 days a week!
I've really had a strong pull lately to be home more with my family and to have more time in my studio. It means less money, but I really feel good about it.
I'm also really thrilled to be starting a new class on Monday with the lovely and
talented Misty Mawn! I got a new sketch pad and some new supplies
and I'm ready to go!

I leave you with a few pics of a work in progress. She is 16x20 on canvas.
I am so thankful my sweetheart got me an easel for Christmas, I love it!

Hope your first week of the New Year was a Happy One.
Much Love to you all and thank you so much for
the kindness on my last post. :)

  12. Hi Jenny, I am visiting you after seeing your blog address on FB at Misty Mawns. Where abouts do you live. We lived in Keizer, just north of Salem. Now in So. Calif and loving it.

  13. Jenny, she reminds me of a geisha girl... I love her! As I'm learning art through Misty, my heart's desire and intention is to draw geisha's. I just found the one that Misty has on her site as pics we can draw... she is my next project for this week :-)

    I can't wait to see your finished project.
