This is a baby blog post. I'm back in prep mode - lots of planning, lots of emailing, very little actual painting.

I do have one little painting to share though - the cell-phone picture kind, so be forgiving about the image quality. This tree is outside my studio window, and is lit from beneath by a streetlight. At dusk the sky behind it gets to be this superblue that silhouettes the whole thing... it's nice. 

Still trying to get more casual about picking up a brush - I'm 100x more comfortable with pencil because that's my default tool. If I can get that comfortable with painting, new worlds will open I'm pretty sure. 

In other news, I added a glamorous slideshow to the top of my Mural Portfolio page. I realized I didn't have one good spot to just show off pretty pictures... so now I do. Check-check it out.
