Sometimes I get the chances to do commission for the best of client. They don't argue with your price and most of all the give you the go to do whatever you want! After all they hire you because they like your style! That's how I got to paint Rachelle and her cats Kabo Style and it was a lot of fun!!
2015 seem to have pass at the speed of light and what an adventure it was! Most of if was all about art and it was a blast. I’ve enrolled in Lifebook class which open the door to a world of wonderful friends all over the world united in the joy of creating art and art journaling. Although it was often in style completely different then mine, it was a breath a fresh air to receive the videos every week and to created on an imposed theme. I got to admit that mid way I got a bit sidetrack by the usual long list of my own projects and boost of creativity that it brought me but I got all the videos safely waiting for me on a hard drive and I still registered for this year as the list of teacher was just to good.
In July I got approach by Kara Bullock to join in on Let’s face it as a teacher, I was overexcited and honoured and did not exited a minute before saying yes!!! I wanted to do videos for a while now and this was the kick in but that I needed to get started! Little did I know that was way more work then I thought! But is it not always the case? The learning curve was at time frustrating but I truly enjoyed it all. Even more when we opened registration and so much people started to sign up!
I got so many messages from all over the world and I feel even more honour and bless to be part of this group. Two weeks in already and from what I’m seeing in our Facebook group it’s gonna be an amazing year! People are supportive of one another and we all share in a judgment free zone where student of all levels can meet and become friends. Trust me you can never get enough art friends that are supportive and positive! You can still sign up here at anytime, the videos can be download and watch whenever you want. At the end of the year I will have a giveaway for anyone who sign up with my link for the 2 original I created for the class.
On a personal level my life have also change a lot as I kept putting myself out there and being open I met some of my virtual friends that have now become staple in my “real world” as well. I can honestly say that I surrounded myself with positive and truly inspiring people that inspire me to push myself even more! 2014 was all about getting out of my comfort zone and in 2015 I continued to push my limit and I sometimes feel like my brain will explode with all the ideas and project that are pack in it, but I guess this is the essence of having a creative mind. :)
That’s it for now. Here are some of my latest creation.
P.S. I also started working on the biggest painting I have ever done (it’s so big that I’m doing it in the bf studio as my place is to small.) Yes I have met someone and you might see some collaborative work in a near future… I’m keeping the suspense for now :)
