It's been a strange week. I woke up Monday, felt kinda tired and decided I'd stay home and work on my website instead of going to the studio. Turned out it was a good thing I stayed home because it soon became apparent that I had the flu! This on the heels of having a cold last week! It's like everything I've managed to avoid all cold & flu season decided to catch up with me at once. Usually when I get sick, it ends up being pretty minor and only puts me out of commission for a day at most. But these two both knocked me flat, so I've missed a lot of studio time the past couple of weeks. I'm feeling better today, and was able to get back to the studio for a couple of hours this morning (and complete the painting above), but that pretty much wiped me out.
Before I succumbed, I did manage to update my website a bit, as well as my ImageKind print gallery. It's been so long since I've touched either that there's still a lot of work to do, but hopefully I'll be more regular about it. Speaking of ImageKind, I got my first commission payment from them! Like I said, I've been pretty much ignoring my gallery there, so it came as a big surprise. It also encouraged me to try a bit harder. If I can make a little money by doing nothing with it, I could probably make a lot more if I actually tried.
By the way, if you ever see me post a painting with "as yet untitled", please feel free to offer suggestions. Sometimes hearing how other people perceive a piece helps me get a sense for how it should be titled.
