January was a pretty good month. I actually made a lot of sales, including some at the Square Inch Gallery in New York, and I feel really good about what I created in the studio (and out). It's been good to be back in the studio, and the feeling of being cut off that I've been experiencing since the holidays began back in November is finally starting to fade.

I also feel really good about the printmaking class I'm taking. Since graduating from art school, I've signed up for many classes just to be disappointed in them, and not completing them as a result. This class is different (and perhaps I am too). So far it's been a truly enjoyable experience and I'm excited to go back each week. These prints of my cat Marlowe are my first etchings. They're pretty simple but I'm absolutely giddy about them! I'm learning some great things, and as I begin to realize the potential of this medium, I'm also starting to realize that the 6 weeks we've been given are not nearly enough to learn all that I want to, so I'll most likely be taking this class again next session.
