It's been determined that I am the worst blogger alive. SOOOO my new mission, more blogging! I'm going to try and stay on this thing! So in the year that it's been I've been teaching fine arts at Allen Community College, which is amazing. Love my job and the close friends that I've made. It's been great teaching the students the amazing things that I was taught in school and seeing their "light bulbs" go off! I've also been working on quite a bit of my own personal work which I'm trying not to let it take the back burner while I'm teaching. The faculty at Pittsburgh told me it could happen, and I see now how it can.
So here are a couple of fine art pieces that I did during the semester.
Shelli & Lexi, Graphite on Arches, 16x20
Skunkbaby, Oil on Canvas, 16x20
I have been really delving into the commercial side of my work. The invitation business is ever growing and I really love creating things for clients. So here are a few things that I've done for people, including my Christmas card from this year.(I promise to put this years card on during the actual Holidays!)
Marshall is a very dear friend and he graduated from Friends Universtiy with a Zoo Science degree, so the invites were very much individual to him. And the animals that I used were photographs that he had taken from the Sedgwick County Zoo.

It turned out amazing and here are some of the sample invitations that I made for her to choose from:
